Friday Favorites: DIY Solar Lamps and Joanna Gaines

Super cute retro kitchen with light blue cabinets and red fixtures. LOVE IT! @Remodelaholic

Welcome to another Friiiday!! I hope you’ve had an amazing week. We are finally thawing here a bit and it is SO nice to have sunshine and above-freezing temps, so we are getting ready for spring and gardening and camping and all that great warm weather family time. Show us your projects here at the link party or message us your pictures over on Facebook — here are a few of the great things we are loving this week! And don’t forget, you can tag your best show-off photos over on Instagram with #imaremodelaholic, too 🙂

Favorite retro room (above): This retro styled kitchen with the light blue/turquoise cabinets and red fixtures was one of my favorites from the home show! Who cares that it’s a second kitchen, I’ll take it as my first and only! See more over on Instagram here.  And I’ve got more Parade of Homes pictures here if you feel like gawking a bit!

Favorite ceiling: This gorgeous rustic vaulted ceiling, over at Thistlewood Farms….

Favorite getting-ready-for-summer project (shared here): Inexpensive solar light + lamp base = totally brilliant outdoor lighting. Get all the details from Redo It Yourself Inspirations.

Favorite mudroom storage: This built-in cubby organizer by TDA Decorating and Design has been popular over on Pinterest, and really, every home should have one of these in that space by the garage door. Builders, take note.

Favorite shelves: I’m a big fan of full tiled walls with open wood shelves. Aren’t these gorgeous?

Favorite mug: This mug we saw on Facebook and found on Amazon cracks me up! “Now say I’m pretty.” 

This is the BEST mom mug EVER! Especially for stay at home moms who hear 'what did you do all day' all the time

Favorite Joanna Gaines: We love Fixer Upper, and when we shared this little meme over on Facebook, we learned how many of you do, too! I’m still a few (okay, a LOT) of seasons behind, but the love is the same.

Love Fixer Upper and Joanna and Chip Gaines!

Favorite herb garden: I’ve seen several variations on the rain gutter planter, but this one takes the cake — the shiny metal gutter on the chalkboard wall is just perfect!

One of the classiest indoor herb gardens I've ever seen! Metal rain gutters on a chalkboard wall. Simple but chic
