We’ve combined the popular parties at I Heart Nap TimeLil’ LunaSomewhat SimpleTatertots & Jello and Today’s Creative Blog to make a giant link party. You’ll only have to link up once to to be listed on all five sites, and each of us will choose our own feature posts —  just like we always have!

So be sure to check with each site to see which of the amazing ideas were featured! I’ll have two “great ideas” posts this weekend!

This week’s giveaway is 

 a $100 Lowe’s Gift Card

to help YOU get your DIY projects started.

(from me!)


After spending some time working on my own house — like the master bedroom makeover — I’ve had some time to work more on the 1905 Cottage.

(I’m planning to share the bathroom makeover next week!)

And I’m so inspired by all of the great projects shared each week that I wanted to help kick-start one of your DIY projects!

My biggest DIY project ever,  my 1905 Cottage Remodel, is still underway, and it’s so satisfying to accomplish each major project!


Here are some Planked Walls  in the cottage I showed earlier this summer – and showed you how to make the same thing!

And I showed how we made the planked floor, too!

Check out some more 1905 Cottage Remodel projects, enter to win, and link up your projects after the break:

I’ve been showing many 1905 Cottage projects (and many more to come) that I hope inspire your space:



Here’s a closer look at my craft room and the restored wood floors that I completely adore!

(Can you believe those had been covered up all these years?)


Here’s one of the first projects from my 1905 Cottage, the modern, white fireplace that we use as the centerpiece of the living room/craft room now.


This spring I decided to entirely make over the front porch!

We completely remodeled the kitchen (well, the whole house, but especially the kitchen):

You can see what it looked like before in this post — and how we made the ceiling here:

Here’s a peek at the kitchen underway:

(Here’s the tile in the kitchen underway:)

If you haven’t read it before, you may even enjoy reading about how I fell in love with this cottage that needed some attention:

There are many projects I haven’t even had a chance to tell you about, like removing the patio overhang that was falling apart to give more light to the house — and prepare the way for a future pergola!

(Yes, we managed to take it off without damaging the house or ourselves!)

You can check out all of the 1905 Cottage projects — and let me know which project you’d like to hear more about. Although we’ve finished the major work, there’s still a lot to do!
