We weren't lying when we said we were floored by the all of the talent that showed up in our Creating with the Stars submissions post. Seriously, you all made us feel a little bad about ourselves. ;) Every single one of the stars said they had a terrible time narrowing their favorites down to the top 11, and we agreed wholeheartedly! So, while there are only 12 contestants vying for the CWTS title this year (you can see them here!), we thought it would be fun to highlight a few of our favorite submissions that didn't quite make the cut.
These babies are gorgeous, and just look at how beautifully they're styled!! We're definitely taking some notes.
Ack, the time and patience that must have gone into this amazing chandelier! Will you make us one....please?
Hot pink, curvy furniture? Never thought I'd say this, but sign me up! I loooooove this dresser.
You know we love a good pallet wall, and this one is no exception. Plus, that dresser reminds us of Monica's outdoor furniture upcycle, and we're totally digging the fun art!
..and because we apparently have a thing for painted dressers, this
Woodland Dresser makeover by The DIY Village is so sweet and woodsy that it caught our eye right away.
We just didn't want all the fun and inspiration to end for all of you talented bloggers out there that didn't make it as contestants this year, so we're hosting a weekly linkup party throughout the entire contest. Basically, that means you get to play along and win great prizes!
Here's how it will work:
Every Tuesday Monica and I will be revealing our project for that week's theme. Woohoo! We have some good projects up our sleeves. :) That same day you can submit your own project that meets the criteria for that week (For example, week one is Upcycle, so anything that you've given new life or repurposed in some way in the last year is game). The winner will receive an awesome prize package from Belmonili and Perfectly Imperfect Shop! So fun! We can't wait to be inspired by your creativity each week. ;)
Don't forget to mark your calendars for these important dates next week when things really get moving!
Have an awesome weekend!
