[favorites] Young House Love

For this week's Four Favorites for Friday, I turned to the first blog I ever read, Young House Love, to find four of their projects that I can't wait to tackle someday. If you have never read their blog, I strongly urge you to go there now! You will be there for hours. They are two average peeps who love to do DIY to their home and share it with the world on their blog. Projects from painting, building, decorating, sewing, crafting, and anything/everything in between. Here's four of their projects I can't wait to start:
All photos from specific links listed below.

[one] turning an old door into a desk: Nate and I pulled the door off of our "toilet room" (an itty bitty room/closet in our master bath for the toilet: seriously, if you had shut the door, it would've felt like a coffin in there) as soon as we moved in. I have the perfect spot in a hallway that leads to our bedroom to turn this door into a long, fabulous desk!

[two] sewing a baby quilt: Not that I'm pregnant or anything, but Sherry made sewing this striped quilt look so incredibly easy! It is adorable and if you use special meaning fabric, it will make it that much more special.

[three] recovering a lamp shade: We have some u-g-l-y standard lamp covers in our house that I would really like to update with fabric that matches our decor. Tools? Fabric and a glue gun. Yes please.

[four] lining dresser drawers with scrapbook paper: How fun is this little surprise in your dresser drawers?! Using scrapbook paper (which costs like .50) and Mod Podge to update a dresser in a fun and modern way is such a great idea. We have a dresser in our bedroom that could definitely use some sprucing up!

Happy weekend! Nate and I are in Dallas currently visiting the State Fair of Texas (it's a big deal) and attending a Texas Rangers game (also a big deal)! Expect posts accordingly next week!

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
