What’s Up Wednesday Link Party + Features

Happy Wednesday! I had a super busy weekend playing hostess with the mostess! I co-hosted my best friend’s bridal shower and bachelorette party a few hours away from where we lived. So not only did I have to have everything complete the day prior I had to lug everything up and pray I didn’t forget anything. I must say that without Mr. Woodsy’s help I would have never gotten everything finish. I’m so happy he’s not afraid to pick up a hot glue gun and pitch in!  We had a great weekend, and it gave Mr. Woodsy and I a chance to get away for the weekend and enjoy life (without not one project to complete)! Yesterday, I posted about the Burlap Wrapped Mason Jars I made for the shower, and I plan to post about the amazing sugar scrub I made for all the guest to take home a long with a few other details from the party. We kept it pretty simple since my best friend is definitely a simple kind of gal!

My lack of sleep from this past weekend has really thrown me off, and with that being said my poor blogs have taken a beaten for it. So without further ado (no I did not forget) here are our favorite links from last week’s link party!

The Reading Nook Project: The Curtains from Creatively Living

These curtains look store bought! I would have never known they were sewn! You must take a look at all the projects for The Reading Nook Project–they are all amazing!

Kindle Cover from homework

This is by far the most genius idea ever. I wonder if I can whip up one of these for Mr. Woodsy’s birthday that is less than a week away?

Wedding Gift from DIY Kinda Girl

I’m in love with this idea. Super simple and inexpensive yet makes a big impact! Heck I want to make one for Mr. Woodsy & I and we’ve been married almost 4 years!

Dreaming Summer Lake from Rustic Living

I love this color and this revamp from old to new!

Silhouette Lamp Shade from A Fish Who Likes Flowers

This is pretty darn cool and I love the whisky bottle they used for the lamp base!

  2. […] First, the mister knocked out the paneling in the front. Yup, there’s even a video. Then, he used his table saw to cut off the bottom half of the headboard. Although, in retrospect, he recommends using a circular saw because it would be easier. Then, I sanded the top to take off some of the finish and to get rid of the scratches and dents. I gave it a coat of white paint first to serve as a kind of primer and to show through a little when I distressed the edges later. Then I brushed on two coats of blue paint to match the stripe on the wall it was going to hang on. That’s right, I BRUSH painted, not spray painted. It took a little longer, but I knew it was worth it for the finished product that I wanted. I was torn for a while whether I wanted to distress the edges or not. But finally decided to and I’m so glad I did. Since it was going to be blue against blue I wanted it to be able to pop against the wall a little and defining the edges was the perfect way to do that. I simply took a sanding block and went over all the edges and raised areas. And here’s the finished product! I LOVE how the blue stripe continues through the shelf. My handy dandy husband figured out how to attach it to the wall using some boards and screws. Let me know if you need a more detailed description. I am so excited to use my new shelf and fill it up! The beauty of using the headboard for this is that I get double the shelf space by using the top and bottom. I’ll show you how good it looks in the finished craft room tomorrow. Thanks for reading.
