Yeah – I am a little behind getting my March Review done. Sometimes time just marches on as much as I would like to be able to push pause on a day! So much to do and so little time! But I wanted to take you through some of what was best this month on the blog and some of my favorite posts from around the web!
DIY and Crafty Goodness
I started off the month by making this jute wrapped vase where I was trying to knock off Ballard’s jute wrapped demijohns. Based on your feedback I did pretty good! Hop over checkout the full tutorial.
I also added some touches of Easter to the Front Door with my Easter Egg Hunt Wreath! I loved how the little eggs peeking out made me feel like going on an Easter Egg Hunt!
Around the House
I finally found a new lamp for our Master Bedroom! This little beauty was half priced at the Goodwill and didn’t even need a coat of spray paint! I love it when things fall together like that!
Oh and I continued to make progress on the living room with some baskets that were perfect for my coffee table – $7 a piece and at Kroger of all places! Sometimes those are the little things that make you happy!
I shared with you guys some great Windsor Chairs at the beginning of the month and how they didn’t have to always make a space feel country. I think the universal favorite picture was this one below!
I also shared with you some great green rooms in honor of St. Patrick’s Day! I just love the color in this one.
Tips and Tricks
I shared some great typography or word art projects with you guys earlier in the month. My favorite in the bunch is this Scrabble Letter Wall Art by Carrie @ Seeker of Happiness! Just love it! Make sure you check out the whole post for some other great ideas!

I also came up with an awesome round up of some great ideas on how to use galvanized metal. While this faux mirror was my personal favorite – there are great ideas on how to make centerpieces, tables, countertops – even shower surrounds! One to check out for sure!

Other Posts and Ideas from Around the Web
If you don’t follow me on Facebook – then you are missing out on seeing some of the great things I find as I am browsing and checking out all of your great blogs! There have been a ton of great projects that I shared this month – but these are my four favorite ideas.
First – I am digging this clock that Kendra @ Creative Ambitions made! Take a good look at it. That is an old spare drawer that she got at the Restore! How amazing is that!!
I am totally into square wreaths – but this one that Suesan @ Frou-FruGal made is phenomenal. Check it out – now would you believe she made the wreath form out of Great Stuff??? You know – that expandable foam in a can? Yep – she made a wreath out of that. Amazing!
Jen @ Scissors & Spatulas made these adorable Martha inspired herb pots!! Love the chalkboard look don’t you!
Finally – Michele @ The Scrap Shoppe made this fantastic sign using a vinyl monogram and some old scrap wood!
Great stuff huh! I love it!! I am looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with in April too! For me…. well I have a ton of projects that I am looking to get finished up. Including some window treatment projects that have been sitting around for awhile. And we are going to get started on the nursery this month too – so stay posted for some new details there.
What about you? Have any fun ideas for this month? Have a favorite post from last month you want to share? I wanna know!
