January is DIY Month & A GeorgiaPeachez GIVEAWAY!

It's official, it's DIY month around Chez GeorgiaPeachez.  I am on a roll peeps, and I don't think you can stop me!  Except for work, damn it.  I just got jobs for next week that have me booked up every day! 

The paint brush is smokin' and I've got to run to the hardware store for more drywall anchors!

It all started with a little rearrangement of my kitchen wall decor.

Then I found the most awesome Christopher Lowell desk and chair on Craig's List for a song.  I LUV Craig's List.

That desk was all I needed to jump start the laundry room remodel.  I have an awesome laundry room.  It's the size of a small bedroom, sunny and bright.  It even has crown molding!  Whoever built my house had a crown molding fetish.  This house is loaded, but that's another story for another day.

Here is the before.

Quite the catch all room.  There is a closet too with the washer and dryer.

I'm almost done with the remodel, but here is a sneak peak at one corner.

It's going to be a great reveal!

Remember the apron I was working on?  I got the pattern here.

I've made one apron from this pattern using vintage feedsacks and I added a vintage pot holder as a pocket on the front.

  17. What a gorgeous apron! I love the colors. Looks like you are having a great time doing the “remodel”. I have a home built in 1890 and started “renovations” back in 1996, it’s so much fun to see a before and after! All the sweat equity is worth it, enjoy! Mimi

  18. My goodness, I can’t believe you’re just going to give away such a fabulous apron! What a lovely thing for you to do. I love the colors you used–they’re just perfect for the shape. Sounds weird, but they are. I don’t know if it would be half so charming in darker colors. Love the pastels!
