Remodelaholic in Review: July 2014

Stuck in a decorating rut? Try these decor ideas from #homedecor

Sheesh, I can’t believe it is August already! July just flew by. We bought a fixer-upper house and spent most of our time working there (follow along here on Instagram @remodelaholic) and finishing up projects in our current place, while also celebrating my daughter’s birthday (she’s 5! oh my!) and then I spent a rainy week in the mountains for a church girls’ camp. It was wonderful!

And here on the blog, things have been just as wonderful. Along with all the amazing projects, we started our new newsletter (please sign up for either daily or 2x monthly delivery or both, if you haven’t already!) and we had an awesome back to school giveaway.

One REALLY exciting thing we started this month: we’re partnering with the good people at eBay to share some of our favorite home design tips and tricks (with more to come!):

Headboard Week

Headboard Week was pretty awesome, right? We LOVED doing a full week focused on tutorials and roundups and having all of YOU share your headboards, too, so we’ll be doing it again soon (different topic this time) — stay tuned! You can catch up on all the Headboard Week posts here.

We also partnered with GAF to talk roofing — who knew that shingles could be so beautiful?

And we discussed popular kitchen layouts — what they look like, pros and cons, and how to use them.
