The first is a site called merrypad.com. Emily, the blogger, is a recent first time homebuyer and enthusiastic "do-it-yourself'er." She writes about all her projects, from larger construction issues like building a deck to smaller decorating projects. I love that she posts before and after pictures. You can browse through her site by room or by date. She has practical design ideas and everyday her site becomes an even better resource!
On another note, thanks to everyone who came out to support erinmakesstuff this weekend. I truly appreciate it. You guys are the best!
So enjoy those links! I'll post more as I think of them!
