Get Your DIY On: Colorful DIY Projects


Hiya, friends!

We’re so glad you’re here to join us for our monthly Get Your DIY On Party! Have we mentioned how happy we are that you join us each month? We love the creativity, and you always inspire! Last month’s Wall Decor Party was amazing. Did you check out our fabulous favorites?


20 Creative Wall Decor Projects

If you missed what I shared this week, I shared this fun Restore find, a very countrified hunter green plate rack that looks much more updated, thanks to the Vaseline painting trick:

And this was my contribution to this month’s GYDO “Colorful” theme. I shared how I updated my outdoor glider bench with a fresh coat of paint and new DIY cushion covers (link to awesome and EASY tutorial included):

    I don’t have my own blog, but I’d love to share a dresser remake – is there any way I can participate?

    • Hi Cheryl! I emailed you directly, but wanted to respond here too in case you don’t get that. Unfortunately the link up requires a website URL to link to, but are you on Facebook? A few blogger friends and I created a Facebook group called Décor Enthusiast Forum where we and our readers all share what we are working on. This would be a perfect thing to share in the group. You can request to join here: It’s a really supportive group made up of mostly non-bloggers and we’d love to have you over there! XO Christy
