friday link love.

back at friday. how is it that each day seems to drag on, yet the week passes so quickly? i have no idea. what are your plans for the weekend? i'm hoping to tackle my office and maybe get some more work done in our bedroom. i finally got the door painted last weekend - now i need to paint the closet doors... fun.

and guess what? next week i'll be a quarter of a century old.

anyway, here are some links from this week:

here's a great post on how to create an antique mirror effect on a new mirror. i'll probably never age any of the mirrors in our house, but i thought it would be a nice thing to save just in case. via apartment therapy.

loving both of these before & afters on d*s this week. especially the transformation of the light fixtures.

this chevron pillow tutorial from made is awesome! i doubt if i could get everything to line up so perfectly though!

nikon announced the d7000 dslr this week. although i doubt i'll be upgrading my camera anytime soon, i definitely perked up when i read about it on the mansurovs. my beef with my entry level? the auto focus isn't compatible with most of the lenses i want and there are only 3 focus points. but, i read a quote earlier this week that i keep repeating every time i feel frustrated by this: the best equipment is what you have available.

loving this letter light project posted on d*s. it's from curlby's new diy hardware book, and seems pretty simple to make. i would love to make one of these for our bedroom. the extra pop of color would be great.

this diy faux birch log side table is another genius idea. i've wanted to bring in some logs to use as side tables, but afraid of what it would do to d's allergies. via apartment therapy.

a few great photography tips from kim pace. i really love reading how others setup their manual settings... mine are usually pretty similar, but it helps to know why others set theirs up the way they do.

this letter of agreement between husband and wife regarding fixing lunch is quite hilarious. via dinner: a love story.

this petal shirt tutorial on sewing in no mans land looks easy enough. maybe i'll dig through the pile of clothes i have ready for goodwill and pull out some tshirts that need a new life. the only downside? i have to remember not to throw it in the dryer.
