Inspiration for a creative home


Monthly DIY Challenge

Each month, some of my best friends and I participate in a DIY challenge. We choose one item or theme and each come up with our own unique project using that item. It's so much fun to see all the different things we are able to come up with from the same starting point! I have such creative and inspiring friends!

Hop around and see what I've put together each month. At the bottom of each post, there is a gallery linking to my friends' projects, so be sure to scroll down for more great inspiration and ideas! Or visit the bottom of this page for links to their galleries.
