DIY Sunday Showcase … 7/5

July 5, 2014

I hope you and your families enjoyed a wonderful 4th of July (for my US friends … for everyone else, I hope you’re enjoying your weekend)!  The weather here in MN has been just gorgeous, and we had a wonderful 4th!  Kiddie parade, BBQ, swimming in the pool, a carnival complete with a BMX bike show and band, we fit a lot into one day!!  Needless to say, the boys didn’t make it to fireworks time (and neither did I!), but we’ll call it a success!

Very patriotic!!

Very patriotic!!

Anyway … the reason you’re probably popping in today is to party with us!  So … enough about my boys, and …

Welcome to this week’s DIY Sunday Showcase! 

Before we get the THIS WEEK’S party started, here’s a quick look back on our week here at View From The Fridge 


On Monday I shared the DIY Lightsabers we made for Owen’s Superhero 4th Birthday.

On Thursday, Krista from The Happy Housie was in our Summer Spotlight this week!

I also shared a thrift store makeover project over at Oh My! Creative … A Monogram Cutting Board.

Angela from Life In Velvet shared a Metallic Vase Makeover using Silver leaf and Spray Paint.

And yesterday, in honor of the 4th, Kristina and Millie from 2 Crochet Hooks shared a Fun and Festive 4th of July BBQ!

Thanks again to Angela, Kristina, and Millie for helping me out with some GREAT guest posts as I enjoy Baby Ben a little more before he gets too big!!

Let’s get to this party, eh?!! First, let me introduce my lovely co-hosts…

Outdoor Makeover Reveal from Making It In The Mountains

Kristi from Making It In The Mountains continues to impress me more and more each week!  Her outdoor makeover reveal turned out just fabulous!!  Every little detail is perfect!  From that AWESOME DIY table to  the DIY ladder shelf to the rug, pillows, table linens, and even the flowers … everything looks AMAZING.  And how could you not want to spend every waking minute back there with those breathtaking views of the mountains??!?  (I’m in MN here … we don’t have much for mountain views!!).
