Summer Reading I


While we are off on our beach vacation, I am leaving you with a small Summer Reading list. I asked each one of  these wonderful bloggers a couple of questions to give you an idea of who they are. I hope that you enjoy these blogs as much as I do and that you visit often.


Today I'll introduce you to some great DIY talent - be it little party projects, full-fledged furniture builds or colourful flea market updates. Enjoy! 

***

Chez Larsson: Benita is a power house to be reckoned with on the DIY front. She'll tackle anything to make her home fit her needs while staying true to her clean and fresh look.


1. What is your favourite blog that you can't wait to read as soon as a new post is published?
I'm always eager to read Young House Love. Sherry, John and I share the DIY bug, that's for sure :). Another (Swedish) favorite is House of Philia.
  
2. What is the most complex DIY that you accomplished in your current home that makes you smile every time you see it?
The front yard of my house which was such a big weed ridden mess and is now a river pebble n' concrete paradise. The difference is so huge I almost can't believe it myself when I approach the house coming home from work at night.

  

Young House Love: A young couple, a little girl, a tiny dog and lots of love for their work-in progress house. You'll find inspiring DIY home renovations, garden updates, furniture builds or even party planning - nothing too scary for Young House Love.


1. What is your favourite blog that you can't wait to read as soon as a new post is published?
I love reading my friend Katie's blog, Bower Power, since we're friends in real life and it makes me feel connected to her and her projects. I have about a million favorite home blogs though, haha, so it's hard to pick just one!

2. If you won the lottery tomorrow, what project would you tackle?
Ooh, that's fun! I think my fantasy project would be to reconfigure the roof-line of our house. You know, add some peaks to our flat little ranch so it's full of charm and dimension from the curb? Maybe someday...
