Blog Of The Week ~ Much To Do With Nothing

Blog of the Week is back from a brief holiday break and our first blog for the New Year is KiaKai/Kelly at Much To Do With Nothing.   And that’s exactly what she does!  Wait until you see the projects she has tackled {and don’t  be afraid to look back at some of her older posts ~ you won’t be sorry}!

Kelly’s most recent post was making this slipcover.  She talks about that here.

She also redid these chairs.  Not so fabulous now, but wait until you see the “after”.   Where some might not give them a second look, Kelly saw beyond the outdated fabrics and  brought them up to speed.  You can read about each one here and here.

She turned her dining room into the room she knew it could be.

I wish I had the time, talent and skills this lady has!  Here is one of her projects that I think I could handle on my own.  A no-sew lampshade makeover!

Head on over to Kelly’s for inspiration, tutorials, and a little bit of “you can do this” attitude to help you get a great start to your DIY and decor related projects in this new year!

Wow, Kelly has done so many amazing projects!! I bought four chairs in March that need to be sanded, painted, and the seats re-covered. If Kelly lived close by, I'd have her do them for me!! ;-)

Happy 2010, Kathy :-)
