5 Fantastic DIY Makeovers and 5 Fall Recipe Ideas + MONDAY FUNDAY Link Party

I know it should feel like Fall, but in Southern California we are in the midst of a heat wave! I am so ready for the temperature to change! I’ll take the flavors of Fall for now to get me into that mindset. = )

And you will love the DIY Makeover ideas featured below. Last week I did one of my own DIY makeovers to a plain plank of wood. I used just colorful acrylic paint and paintbrush to make this really pretty piece of wall art.

And on the crafting side, we went a little old school with crafting and made homemade spool knitters. So fun and easy!
