Make it Yours Highlights {#12}

April 19, 2010

Wow friends!  137 amazing and unique projects were linked up to last week’s Make it Yours Day.  Here are a few of my favorites:

Stephanie Lynn at Under the Table and Dreaming made this amazing hanging succulent basket.  Just gorgeous!
Jenni at Shared from Way Over Here showed off her revamped craft space.  Such a bright and beautiful space.  She used scrapbook paper on the edge of her desk.  Super clever and pretty!
Sherri at Design to Shine revamped a thrift store find with a little paint and created this amazing table.  I just love this color!

The Comfort Zone found a Kitchen Aid mixer at a garage sale and made it over with some red paint.  Gorgeous!  My mixer is definitely getting a makeover so it can come out of the cupboard and live on the counter!
Nikki from Nikki’s Nifty Knacks made an armillary from metal strapping she found in the dumpster!  I didn’t even know what these were called before reading her post, but I know that I love them!
A Little Bit of Everything shared a recipe for peanut butter dog biscuits.  My peanut butter loving dog Rosie is going to be in heaven when I make these!

The Cape on the Corner revamped her dark sunroom into this light, airy vision of beauty.
Sarah at Creative Jewish Mom made this super sweet mobile out of embroidery hoops.  So pretty!
Kim at Simply Domestic prettied up an old step ladder with some paint and made something beautiful for her garden.  Love this color!
Last, but definitely not least, is the project with the most page views.  Michelle at Between Cottage and Cabin shared her cottage office, and the beautiful bookcase built by her hubby.
I am loving the variety of projects being linked up!  If you were featured, help yourself to a button:
