In other news, I began a makeover at my niece’s house as I mentioned last Friday.  We are only in the beginning stages, with one project off of our to-do list so far, but I’m really liking where this is going.  I need to get back over for a few photos so I can share that first DIY with you soon.  Now on to my favorite design picks from around the web this week!

I’m completely in love with this beautiful monochromatic bedroom!  I am not a morning person to begin with, but if this were my bedroom I might not ever get out of bed!

This coastal bedroom is equally as amazing as the one above.  That rustic headboard and planked vaulted ceiling are both stunning!

I’ve noticed a trend with my Five for Friday design picks.  They’re always mostly cottage/farmhouse style with a bohemian/modern room thrown in.  This week’s boho style room really has me drooling!  I really love this living room from New Darlings.

A DIY to try this weekend: paint something velvet!  (Does velvet remind anyone else of Seinfeld, when George wanted to drape himself in velvet??) I’ve never heard of velvet finishes paint until just this week when I saw this amazing mid-century modern console table makeover from one of my blogging friends.  This really came out beautiful!  I just found a very similar console table roadside (as in free!) that is now at my nieces house and will be part of the makeover that I mentioned.  Funny, because my initial idea was to paint it charcoal gray, similar to this, but I’m trying to talk my niece into letting me do something a little different with this piece.

And to mix things up this week, my fifth pick is a book that I just read.  I’m a huge fan of the Fixer Upper show (who isn’t?) but I wasn’t sure I really needed to read their book, The Magnolia Story*.  Something made me order it a couple of weeks ago and I’m so glad I did!  I read it cover to cover in only a few days.  It’s such a beautiful story of their relationship and attitude.  Completely supporting one another no matter how crazy their ideas seemed at the time, having a positive attitude when times got tough, maintaining a deep faith in God and putting in lots of hard work are some of the things they talk about.  I highly recommend it!
