{Happy Weekend}

Last night a friend and I were discussing options for taking her wooden bureau from drab to fab. A glass or two of vino later and we're back in the apartment [with a little Alanis Morissette for musical company] searching through magazines and blogs to try and find the look she liked. Of course, design*sponge came up with the goods and these two colourful makeovers had us both 'oooing' and 'ahhhhing'. There's nothing like having a little project to get stuck into, right? Last night's nattering has left me hankering after a bit of a craft up, so I'd love for you to let me know any DIYs that have had you inspired. Enjoy your weekend, gang!

    After seeing so many great orange and turquoise spaces, I was inspired to do my own little diy - see a sneak peek today before I reveal my living room on Monday! :)
