The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 247 & Inspire me Orange

Welcome back everyone and Happy Leap Year Day! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I finished our dining room bay window makeover this weekend and I’m obviously out of shape because I’m so sore.  Hat’s off to you home d├ęcor and diy experts. Actually, my husband and I used to do a lot of diy projects but we've slowed down and now we’re on that cycle of everything needs improvement again. Anyway, I can’t wait to show you the dining room reveal soon. I just need to finish up some of the decorating part and then we’ll be done.

Now let’s move on to the projects featured in the spotlight and a little recap of what I’ve been sharing.

Inspiration Board Spotlight

This is a stunning project by Not Just A Housewife. A topography inspired planter. Each layer is cut out of wood and glued together before the final hole is cut down the middle. Wow!
