Favorite Projects from #swapitlikeitshot

Now that it’s been a week since we first posted our #swapitlikeitshot projects, and I’m (almost) fully recovered, and divorce proceedings have been halted (my husband and I do NOT do DIY well together) – I thought I’d share some of my favorite projects from the other participants and the link party participants!

(These are in no particular order, yada yada yada…)

Makely Home Glitter Bookends

Well, obviously these HAVE to be in my top picks, because GLITTER. And also, I love Lindsay to pieces. And, GLITTER.

Windgate Lane MCM Table

Since I have such excellent taste (or maybe I’m just cruel), I had to throw this one in as well. I mean, I *did* buy this for Bee at Windgate Lane. I got lucky and was able to meet her for lunch and deliver the goods, since she’s local to me. Bee probably hates me, but I just love the way this turned out!

Carrie at Making Lemonade got me with this one. Yeah, pretty sure I’m gonna be copying this little project, if I can find a wire basket like this! My house is so tiny, there just isn’t much room for knick knacks – but guess what? I can sure hang stuff from the ceiling! 

Now for my favorite link party participant projects (say that 5 times fast):

http://simpledetailsblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/chair-reupholster-in-greek-key.html Pam at Simple Details found a classic cane chair at an estate sale (LUCKY!) and took it from boring to awesome just by giving it a little bit of love. I would be so thrilled to find a chair or two like this to play with!

Ever since I made my lamp for the swap, I’ve become obsessed with lighting in general. I love how simple this is, and how much better it looks than it originally did! I would love to make some more light fixtures, so I’ll be keeping this pendant light from SafAffect for future reference!

Gold is finally growing on me. I hated it until maaaaaaaaybe 6 months ago, and I have no idea why. Now? I can’t get enough. Ursula at Homemade by Carmona transformed these $1 Goodwill bowls into something I would probably buy from a store, just by using gold spray paint. I’ll be picking up every bowl in sight from now on. 

So, did you find any projects that you just fell in love with? Do you have one to add? The link party is up for another week, so keep on adding!
