TWIRL AND TAKE A BOW Link Party and Features




Getting Organized |Twirl & Take a Bow - http://DesignedByBH.com - #linkparty


How was everyone’s weekend???  Are you ready for another great party?  It’s time for Getting Organized | Twirl & Take a Bow!  I don’t know about you, but there are definitely a few parts of my house that could use some real cleaning out and sprucing up.  Fortunately, this week’s features, brought by the lovely Trina of a few miner adjustments, are all about just that!  Let’s see what she found!
Dashed Line

I’m Nesting


                                                      

I’m in nesting mode around these parts.  


Nope, I’m not expecting a baby {that ship has thankfully sailed}.  

The summer’s lazy days have slipped away from me, however; and school will be starting soon.  

I feel like I have so much more left to accomplish in the next 2 weeks…finish our fireplace tile, paint my bathroom, paint a mirror, make some crafts, but the biggest job is getting my classroom ready for the upcoming year. 

It’s time to make a few miner adjustments to my lazy days, so today’s top picks are brought to you be the letter S {for school that is}. There are so many good tips for getting organized that I just had to put them all together for you.

Enjoy the inspiration!







Let’s be friends: Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Twitter

This Week’s Top Picks

Back to School: Teacher Interview Free Printable {www.homemadeinterest.com}
 How adorable is this interview {from Home. Made. Interest.} for the student’s to fill out on the first day of school? I know I would love that. It is a cute and fun way to get to know your class.

I loved being in college. We had a lot of fun {maybe too much fun}, but that was a long time ago before Pinterest and before digital cameras and i Phones {thank goodness}, so we didn’t think of cute ways to make our dorm rooms look better. Trish from The Old Post Road has some clever ideas for you that will head you down the path of comfort and straight A’s!

Love me some Annie Sloan Paint! On my to do list is to paint my bathroom vanity with that paint in duck egg blue. However,  since that is low on the list right now, I will just marvel over this bookcase done by Courtney over at Crafts by Courtney

Back-to-School Weekly Calendar Board :: making it in the mountains
And finally there is this weekly calendar board by Making it in the Mountains. I love how everything is in order for each day instead of magnets all over the fridge. This project is a quick and adorable way to keep track of all the papers!

Fun and Fresh Painted Patio Makeover

 Good Morning my Beauties!
I have a fun little makeover for you this Monday!
I have wanted to make over the patio for so long and
once the house had finished being painted
the patio stuck out like a sore thumb. 
I really didn't want to start another project but we were having
some very MILD weather and it had to be done
so I just had to buck up and do it!
 This was the before...now you know WHY it stuck out like a sore thumb against the freshly painted house.
The patio has seen YEARS and years of wear and tear.
It had tons of pitted spots and lots of stains and mildew.

 the first thing I had to do was Power wash and scrub the whole thing .
 You can see the difference already with just the cleaning.
but it still was rough looking.
 I went to Lowes and grabbed this patio paint (I am not being sponsored by lowes or valspar, I just wanted to show you the type of paint I was using)
 I started rolling it on and was thrilled with how great it looked already.
BUT.....YOU KNOW ME.....
I can't just have a plain patio.
It just wasn't me.

So I grabbed one of my Mylar floor stencils and a lighter gray patio paint and started rolling on my stencil. I was in LOVE...I wanted it to look like an outdoor rug so I just ran a border around the outside edge of the patio.

 I was so happy with the results.
The difference was unbelievable.

It is now one of my favorite places to have coffee in the morning.
Its not fully decorated yet. As usual its a work in progress, but I just couldn't wait to show you.

I hope you enjoyed this quick makeover.
Don't forget to comeback tonight to link up the the TWIRL AND TAKE A BOW
link party to show us what you have been working on.
Until then,
Go make someones day beautiful!

Peacock blue and silver Vintage glamour Goodwill Desk Makeover

Replaying this Oldie but goodie 
while we finish up all our outdoor projects here at the
Art is Beauty House.
ENJOY! 
Good Morning My BEAUTIES! 
I am really excited about this project!
It was a spur of the moment..(cram it in before all the Holiday festivities...cause YA KNOW..I didn't have a million other things to do...:)) Kind of thing!

The hubby and I had traveled across town to go to a Christmas Party and pretty much anywhere
there is a Goodwill within a five mile radius My inner thrift alarm goes off. Well we were leaving the party and much to my chagrin, I informed the hubby that there was a Goodwill nearby..
Let me tell you he was ECSTATIC!! (are you catching the sarcasm) but being the loving husband
he is..he brought me anyway.
This Beauty was sitting there waiting for me....(more sarcasm) It was beat up..had labels stuck to it and was in need of some major TLC...

and that is what she got. The kids got asked by Grandma to help make some Christmas cookies
and I knew this was my time to work. I grabbed this new PEACOCK color by American Paint Company! I couldn't wait! I lightly sanded the whole thing,(since there had been lots of pieces of tape stuck to it) coated the top with a custom mix of CeCe Caldwells slate and some other colors and started painting the base with the Peacock!

After painting and waxing, loving how the bits of the darker blue were popping through to accent
I decided she needed a little more....shall we say...VAVAVA VOOOM ness...
So I pulled out one of my stencils and some silver paint and got to work.

I love the glamour that the small bit of stencil added to this plain desk.

I also used 3 different knobs to add a nice eclectic vintage feel to it.

I still can't believe when I look at it that it was the same  desk.

It was also another one that I was tempted to keep, but luckily for the hubby,
I had an open space that I needed to fill at the booth, so there she went.
Waiting patiently for someone to bring her home and give her, her CLOSE UP!
I hope you enjoyed this latest makeover and I hope
you are all enjoying the season. Before you know it
will be over and we will be wondering how we got it all done!
So Relax and Enjoy!
Until next time,
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

TWIRL and TAKE a BOW LINK party and FEATURES

Good Morning Y'all...and welcome to Twirl and Take a Bow!  I'm so glad you stopped by to link up and socialize.  In case you're new to our party, I'm Tammy from Deja Vue Designs.   If you've never been to my little corner of blog land, I'd love for you to stop on by! I am a confessed addict of many things...including junk...but that's a tale for a different day. Guest-Button
I would also love to connect with each of you in any of these ways!

I found it very interesting that there were some really informative "advice" linked up this week.  I decided that they would make a really interesting feature line up.  My first feature...is the exception to this:  It's not a advice project...but it is fun...and informative! Untitled-1 This lamp caught my eye, and I just fell in love with it the moment I saw it.  Oddly enough, I knew that it would be one of the features...before I even clicked over to the site.  Low and behold, this just happens to be one of our very own Twirl and Take a Bow hostesses' projects: Trina from A Few Miner Adjustments. I can't wait for you to see how she did this...especially the lampshade!

JUNK bargain hunter like me, you'll appreciate this feature.  With a title like that...Sarah from 702 Park Project really needs no introduction!

What Meegan Makes

Untitled-1 Ordinarily, I wouldn't have the same blogger as two of the features, but Meegan from What Meegan Makes, had some really awesome tips this week, that I think almost anyone can really use.  She's an amazing blogger..I sincerely hope you'll head on over and check out her beautiful site.
