Hi everyone and welcome to The Scoop #103.
I’ve been totally absorbed with two things this past week.
First is the Farmhouse Facelift that I’m planning for my kitchen. I’m super excited to get this project underway! My new kitchen table arrived last week. Now I just need some spray painting weather to get here so that I can get on with making over my kitchen chairs and barstools. Here’s a little mood board that I but together to give you an idea of where I’m headed.
As February approaches, I’ve also been absorbed with all things Valentine’s Day. I have several projects that I’m excited share with you over the next couple of weeks. This past week, I made a Valentine’s Sweetheart Bouquet and shared the tutorial for making one of your very own. It’s an easy, kid friendly project as long as there’s an adult to take care of/supervise the hot glue gun.
Oh and speaking of Valentine’s Day – the All Things Home Valentine Showcase featuring projects and decor from 20 bloggers started today!
I know y’all are ready for the party, so let me turn things over to Anita, our host for The Scoop this week.
I cant’ wait to see what you have to share!

Seriously is it time for the scoop again?
Hi, it’s Anita with Cedar Hill Farmhouse hosting the scoop this week.
I’ve been super busy lately with some very exciting things. More on that later, but in the meantime,
I have two great chair projects from last week that I thought you might enjoy. The first one is about
sprucing up $5 thrift chairs
And the second one is about
making slipcovers for my dining room chairs.
Okay I could go on and on, but I know you are ready to get to the linky party, so here is our guest host for this week.
Hi everyone! I’m Heather from Setting for Four and I’m so excited to be here guest hosting ‘The Scoop’ this week!
I’m a military wife and Mom to two teen boys – our oldest is in Military college and our youngest is in Grade 9. They are both amazing sons and it such an honor to not only be a military wife but also a military Mom! I started my blog 3 years ago, baby steps first then full time in 2013. I love to DIY and decorate my home inside and out, and create a stylish and comfortable haven for our family of four! I also started my interior design career last year and love helping others solve their design dilemmas and beautify their homes! As a military family we have moved many, many times and often have to be creative with fitting our furniture in each of our homes. We purchased our lovely 6 year old home two years ago and are in the process of painting it top to bottom, updating the lighting and kitchen and decorating it room by room.
Here are some of my recent posts:

I also offer online decorating services including Mood Boards, sourcing and answer questions via email; here is how I helped Raeleen with her decor dilemma: Reader Redesign – Fireplace Makeover

I have to admit it was super difficult to pick the features from all of your amazing DIY’s and beautiful projects from last week! I hope that you find my feature picks as inspiring as I do!
First up, these No Sew Uphostered Chair Makeover from My Creative Days. I love the vintage floral fabric that Lindsay used on these estate sale chairs! Paired with the white paint these chairs are simply gorgeous!
Next, this fabulous Ikea Bookcase/Chest of Drawers Hack from Tasha at A Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body (love your blog name Tasha!). Tasha took some basic Ikea pieces and with ingenuity and paint turned them into these custom furniture pieces for her twin girls’ bedroom!:
Graphic art is so hot right now and I love Angela’s metallic DIY Ampersand Valentine Art from Life in Velvet. This is such an easy DIY and would be perfect for a Picture Gallery Wall or part of a table vignette like this:
Rachel at Maison de Pax turned what she referred to as her‘Swiss Chalet’ library bookcases into these trimmed out beauties with DIY Decorative Molding! Check out the step by step tutorial to see how she did it!
