Aren't Fridays just the best?  I hope you'll enjoy some weekend reading!

Jennifer shared a  tutorial and video on how to paint kitchen cabinets.  I never got around to posting about painting my cabinets yet, so go check out Jennifer's tutorial at The Chronicles of Home.  It's fantastic.  As much as I love black paint, this white wall of cabinets is just too good.  Can you believe this before and after?

I tried my hand at a colorful cake for Emily's 10th birthday, but how cute is this rainbow cupcake from Pink Peppermint design?  Such a fun party treat bursting with a surprise inside!

Bethany shared a book of gallery prints that she came across at Hobby Lobby.  There are several varieties, full of coordinating ready to frame artwork (some even gold foil), all for less than $10 with a sale or coupon.  I've already purchased one myself and used a print in a recent gallery wall.

I'm mustering up all of my courage and making plans to participate in the One Room Challenge Linking Event this Spring.  This round will begin on April 2, and participants will have 6 weeks to transform a space.  I'm serious about tackling my Master Bedroom, so I thought this challenge would be the perfect opportunity to get it done.  But, 6 weeks?!?  When I've had the stuff sitting around for 2 years to get it done?!?  I'm scared!  Obviously, I need a deadline to get 'er done.  But, anxious to complete it and see the vision in my head come to life.  You can see all of the reveals from last Fall's edition here.  Pretty good stuff!  If you're a blogger you should join in on the fun, too!  If you're not, I'll need all of the moral support I can get!  ;)

I'll leave you laughing for your Friday... I saw this adorable baby elephant video on a friend's Facebook page last week.  Watch it (skip to about 35 seconds to start).  That's the hardest I've laughed in a long time.

Happy Weekend!

    Oh, what a nice surprise, Jennifer! Thanks so much for sharing! I was so in love with those prints Bethany showed too and was feeling bad for myself that there isn't a Hobby Lobby near me, but I wound up finding them on Amazon! Can't wait for them to arrive. Happy weekend!

  4. I have to grab my copy too! Thanks for the heads-up, Hobby Lobby is 'killing it' lately, shared my latest find there too today! I'm joining ORC too with Sophia's nursery, Its also a project much delayed so hopefully I could get motivated to finish it off soon too!!!! Good luck to us!

  5. Thanks so much for the shout out! :) I can't wait to see what you do in your master bedroom, I know it's going to be so good! Have a great weekend!
