Remodelaholic in Review, June 2013

June was another fun and busy month! Summer is flying by… I can’t believe it’s already July! Here’s what we did last month on Remodelaholic. I love to see what you are doing, too, so come share at our weekend party! Click each photo to see that post. 

DIY Polka Dot Confetti Drapes

I started June by sharing my favorite part of my oldest daughter’s room: the confetti drapes! They really pull the room together without looking too grown up for my little girl. Get the tutorial to make your own polka dot drapes here

They went above and beyond what they were required to do and they just did a GREAT job. Read the whole installation story here. And don’t worry, I’ll have a tutorial on those cute window shutters, soon!

Living Room Reveal and Interior Column Building Plans

I also finally showed you the full reveal of my living room… from my last house… don’t judge…

Get This Look

We started a new series this month, called Get This Look, where we find some great inspiration photos and give you a handful of simple tips to achieve that look in your  home.  This month we did my Park House dining room (I’m a little bit biased, I LOVE that room!) and a pretty and tidy work bench

Giveaways, Tips, and Recipes

I teamed up with some great companies and bloggers to give away a Kindle Fire for Father’s Day, a camera for you AND one for a friend, and a great Summer Done Bright prize pack from P&G.  These giveaways have ended, but thanks to those who entered and congratulations to the winners! Look for more giveaways soon.

We rounded up some great inspiration for you — 25 of each! See our collections of DIY art for your home, kitchen backsplashes, and DIY doors.
