Home decor & DIY blog news, inspiring projects from this week

Happy Friday everyone! We made, it, the week is done, the weekend is almost here and I think that my friends is something to celebrate. Today I am sharing the Home decor & DIY blog news, inspiring projects from this week!

Home decor blog news, presented from Our house now a home. DIY bloggers with the latest and greatest home decor projects.

This is something new I will be doing every Friday, a home decor blog news update. Let’s call this the equivalent of celebrity gossip, except instead of talking about what someone is wearing or who they are dating we are going to talk about what bloggers created! The home decor blogging community is amazing and so supportive, so I wanted to toot all of these talented ladies horn a little, share their inspiring ideas with you all!

Each Friday I will be sharing their latest and greatest from the week. It may be a specific theme for one week, a specific decorating style, or just some ideas that caught my eye. The best part about this is that it has now become my job (self appointed) to peruse other blogs, stalk their homes and drool over their ideas! Now you all can see it too! Be sure to visit the blogs itself to see the complete post with all of the information!

Now let’s get to Home decor & DIY blog news, inspiring projects from this week –
