Friday Favorites: barn doors, a telescoping table, and a beautiful corner (home) office -- plus farmhouse projects, upcycles, and more! @Remodelaholic

Favorite new farmhouse: Anderson and Grant has a lovely home and some lovely farmhouse style and DIY projects, like this dresser turned farmhouse buffet:

Favorite use of fabric: Sewing and I don’t always get along, so I can empathize with scrapping a pillow project and covering books instead like Knick of Time! The ticking fabric is a great farmhouse touch anywhere, and you could use this any time, any fabric, to help your mantel or shelf vignette look just right.

Favorite still-hot color: Coral! It’s come and gone in various shades, but I love coral for its ability to be versatile and bright — not just pink, not just red, not too orange. This coral and navy pairing from a recent homeshow makes me happy 🙂 PS: If you love seeing pretty pics from homes, be sure to follow us over on Instagram!

Favorite why-didn’t-I-think-of-that upcycle: Redo It Yourself Inspirations has some amazing repurposed projects — and I never would have thought to turn an old blanket stand into a farmhouse style storage unit!

Favorite smart kitchen idea: This isn’t new, but I love these pull-out kitchen cabinets to organize utensils (via This Old House) and baking sheets (via Waypoint Living Spaces). I bet this drawer hack could be used to make either of those ideas come to life in a DIYers kitchen!

Favorite reader kitchen: Our amazing readers send in project to show off over on Facebook (we’d love to see yours!) and Whitney sent us her beautiful kitchen! Check it out here

From Whitney: Our kitchen project! When we moved in we so over all the white cabinets in the house. I also have to admit I was itching to paint something with chalk paint. After we painted the cabinets grey the old backsplash and counter tops had to go. To had a vintage/rustic touch we got someone to build us a custom pantry door. All and all I am happy but wish I had some space for a dream island!

Favorite garden: You’ve probably seen this around, but I just keep thinking how SMART it is! Swing N Cocoa built this awesome covered greenhouse to let you extend your garden’s growing time.

Favorite easy jewelry storage: Real Happy Space used a basic jewelry hanger with a cute canvas to make super easy hidden jewelry storage!

Favorite corner office: See what I did there? 😉 @gracecottagehhi turned a corner into a functional home office with a great corner desk and some open shelving. Love the blue!

Favorite smarty-pants table: We shared this video over on Facebook and WOW! Apparently this is called a telescoping table, and it’s brilliant for large families like my extended family.
