Domestically-Speaking shared this adorable DIY Painted USA Flag Pallet Sign...

Designthusiasm showed us how she prepared the patio for summer. 
I could spend some time here, how about you?

Sawdust Sisters shared a great tutorial for their DIY Entry Way Plank Wall with Shelf. You'll want to check out the before and afters of this wall. They added a serious dose of character!
