This week I've really been focusing on buckling down on my March LOVE Project goals that I wrote about here

It just so happens that two of the things I'm sharing today are directly related to two of those goals! Funny how that ended up...and totally a coincidence too! 

10 Tips for Painting Furniture Like a Pro - from Lovely, etc

(Be sure to click through to see the other pieces accompanying this post - all so beautiful!)
I've painted furniture before, but it's never been *perfect*. I'm excited to get started on the three pieces I have on my list, and I'll definitely be referencing this post again for some direction. 

Next is this post on creating family memory books by Every Day Cheer.

Aren't these great?! I didn't know there was a "Blog to Book" option AND I had never heard of Blurb either. I won't be going this direction this year, but it's a good option to keep in the back of my mind. 
I've been "working" on our 2013 memory book for, ooooo, three months now. I've got to kick it into gear and get that off my list. Having these for years to come and passing them down as heirlooms someday is such a fun thought!

And finally, completely unrelated to anything I'm working on, I stumbled across an Etsy shop this week that's too great not to share. It's called Olive and Birch Printables and you have got to check it out! I've been scheming for over a year now how to incorporate "printables" into my my home decor, specifically to reflect seasons and holidays (something that can be easily changed out, often). This shop totally brought that back to mind! (Psst...this print is my fav!)
