July has been a busy month! Here is a quick recap on my favorite posts in case you missed them the first time around.

DIY and Crafty Goodness
My favorite project this month was where I turned a Poster into a Faux Painting!  This was such a fun project and I just loved your great responses on it.  Many thanks to Lindsay over at Living with Lindsay for featuring it in her Teach Me Tuesday feature this week!  I also loved that Camille @ Mother★Lode featured it in her Tuesday Tumbler.

I decided to think outside the box with my $1 Yard Sale Mirror and come up with six ways to transform it!  I really loved doing this project, really made me think outside the box.  It even lead me to create my Cardboard Chalkboard in the end!  I also want to thank Julia @ Hooked on Houses for featuring me in her weekly roundup!

Decorating Around the House 
I finally got a new coffee table!  You guys know how long I have been wanting that checked off the list!  Of course there is still a long list of things to do to get the room "finished" or at least finished until I change my mind!

I also shared with you guys how we decorated around the TV with some light white accents.  I think it is just enough for things around the sides without being too distracting.

Inspiration Ideas
In honor of the 4th of July and backyard BBQ's everywhere - I shared some ideas for Backyard Party Spaces.  I still love drooling over this picture!

I also shared some great ideas from my MIL, Lynn's house.  I think everyone loved her fantastic headboard that she made out of an old door!

Shopping Tips and Finds  
Of course there were a lot of great yard sale finds over the month that haven't been transformed yet, like this set of cute oval frames for $2.  Stay tuned for what is going to happen with those and the other yard sale finds that I working on making over! 

I also gave you a run down on my tips for shopping at Ikea.  You have to have a game plan people!! 

I also did a round up of some great summery window treatments.  I think by far everyone's favorite panels were these from JCPenney!

From All Around the Web

I loved the Trellis Wall that Kate @ The Centsational Girl did on her Master Bedroom Wall.

I found this idea for using Lazertran paper to put graphics on ceramics from Jenn @ Rook No. 17.  

I adore these beautiful smocked curtains that Wendy @ The Shabby Nest made herself!!  I really want to do this for our bedroom!
