Friday I'm In Love with a Pop of Color

Friday I'm in Love is back - and I'm feeling quite ambitious today!  Baby is settling in, so I thought I would venture out and hit the community yard sale in my neighborhood this morning.  I'm hoping to find some cheap baby stuff to eliminate some pricey items off of my "still need" list.  Then, I have a disaster of a house to clean, a baby to feed (and feed, and feed...) - and last but not least - this post. 

Everywhere I turn I am seeing brights - from clothing to decor - you name it.  In my "spare time" this week, I managed to find a few projects in the blogosphere that caught my eye.  So, without delay - here are my picks for this week!

The first project is this Awesome dresser redo from Jenn at My Fabuless Life.  I seriously never would have thought to paint something watermelon pink - but this totally works!  I LOVE the color!  You have to check out the before and after transformation on her blog.

I heart all of the pops of color in Chrissy's dining room makeover over at Hoot Designs.  This space looks so relaxed.  I could totally see myself hanging out with friends over some wine.  I just love this look!

 The $2 shelves look so perfect in Jamie's nursery!  She shares the tutorial on how she made the shelves over at The Letter 4.  How cute is this little vignette?  LOVE!

I think I may need to be picking up a new skill - needlepoint!  How adorable is this Embroidery Hoop Name Art made by Jennifer at The Brilliant Crafty Type?  I love the use of different fonts, and of course the bright colors!  Yup - I think I need to learn how to do this!

And finally - the ruffles on this T-shirt that Jamie made for her daughter are so cute!  Such a great way to turn a plain white T into adorable!  She shares the full tutorial over at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom, and also shares the matching shorts and skirt that she made to go with it!
