Best of DIY Link Party

I was asked recently what my favorite DIY project is inside my home.  There are so many that I love it’s honestly hard for me to pick just one, but if I have to narrow it down, then I choose this project right here:

Burlap and slate picture frame on reclaimed wood (1 of 6)

You can read all about this project here and find the tutorial here, but here’s the Reader’s Digest Condensed version: My Grandparent’s home stayed in our family after they passed away, so when my uncle decided to renovate it he gave me a bunch of the old wooden trim from around the doors and windows.  I even scored the kitchen door threshold, which holds decades of dusty memories and family history within it’s grooves.  I needed a way to preserve this cherished wood and display it in my own home today, so I came up with this unique photo “frame” idea.  This is one of the most special projects I’ve ever created, and it will always hold a special place in my DIY loving heart. 

Then there’s this one.  This one has been a super popular one over the years, and is still going strong.  Can’t beat a Pottery Barn knockoff.

Then there was that time we glued and sawed a bunch of chippy blue and green wood together to make this giant wooden star for my mantel.  THAT shot straight to the top of my favorite DIY project for a long time. 


But what about that time I spent a week on my knees pulling up carpet tacks and painting my basement steps an assortment of different colors

I’m telling y’all… I have too many favorites to pick just one.  So, I’ll let you decide for yourself by checking out my DIY Projects page!   Did you know I have all of my DIY project categorized up top in a handy-dandy Project Hall of Fame listing?  I try to make it easy for y’all to navigate around here.  Hopefully I succeed some days. 

Now that I’ve shared mine, it’s time for you to share your own DIY projects with me and 20+ of my blogging friends in this HUGE Best of DIY link party.   You can find the joint party on these bloggers pages and head over to read about their best DIY projects, too!
