Friday Finds

Hi all! I hope everyone's been enjoying their week.

I'm always running to catch up after a Monday holiday, are you? I spent most of my week doing research for a big home improvement project we have coming up here at my house. It's the biggest and best thing since my sprinklers were installed!

I'll give you a hint: it involves tearing out a wall. Yikes! And let's just say, I won't be using my kitchen for weeks. More yikes! 

I'm so excited!

More about that next week, though, because today is all about Friday Finds.

Decorating Ideas Made Easy
 Jennifer at Decorating Ideas Made Easy shares a tutorial for turning an old milk crate into a fabulous ottoman. 

Chipping With Charm
At Chipping With Charm Laurel made a turntable spice rack out of an old spool. 

The Blissful Bee
 This gold chevron pattern lampshade was created by Amy at Blissful Bee.

We Call It Junkin'
 Dawn at We Call It Junkin' shared this photo of a chalkboard displayed at one of her favorite thrift stores. Love it!

At Home With Jemma
 Jemma from At Home With Jemma took a walk and was inspired to make this primitive natural FALL display. I must make one for my fantle.

I Wash You Dry
I love making hearty Sunday brunch when the weather cools off. These Maple French Toast Muffins shared by Shawn at I Wash You Dry will be perfect. Hop over and check out what else Shawn has up her sleeve for these muffins, and be prepared to swoon. 

I hope you enjoyed my Friday Finds this week!

Have a wonderful weekend and a

  5. Wonderful finds! I'm going to check out those muffins, they seem like they'd be just my type of thing! Can't wait to hear about and see your next project - tearing out a wall is big time! As a complete aside, I love that as I'm writing this comment, my comment box is right next to the photo of Tucker - what a handsome guy!

  6. Fun finds Laurel! Thanks so much for including my spinning spool rack!! Have a great weekend :)

  7. Hi Laurel, thank you so much for featuring me on your lovely blog! What a nice honor! I saw your fantle post - that's awesome. We're about to build a detached screened porch in our back yard, that won't have a fire place, but I wanted to find an old fireplace surround to decorate and "pretend" it has one, or now I realize we could just put up a big shelf and call it a "fantle!" Thanks for the great idea. Take care - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin
