Make it Friday: Plywood and Pastels


Did this week fly by for anyone else?? Not that I’m complaining, but I’ve still got SO much to do for my entryway and could use some extra time. It’s my own fault, I keep adding steps because I am a DIY masochist.

If you’re looking for pretty DIY ideas to make this weekend, I found some good ones for you this week.

I am STILL PAINTING this weekend, because I decided to paint the linoleum tile floor of our entryway. I am so, SO sick of painting, so why did I decide to do this? I told you, I’m a masochist. What’s on your weekend agenda?
