Bad, Bad Blogger

I feel like a bad blogger - I haven't got any upcoming projects to be posted this weekend or "any almost-finished-can't-wait-to-show-you" sneak peeks. As it turns out, the next few weeks are going to be crazy busy with a little travel, a lot of house work and at least one pretty big life change! 

That being said, I do have some projects that I'm going to be tackling, including my first (...and possibly final, depending on how things go...) attempt at reupholstering, some ceiling scraping and painting of the room over the garage, my closet-office space, and painting my kitchen cabinets. 

That being said - and you knew this was coming - the blog posts might be a bit sparse but I will try my very best to be back with all kinds of goodies for you ASAP. 

In the meantime, I'd love to hear what you're working on! What are your projects? What's inspiring you these days? 

And don't forget Bloglovin's competition is still going and so far I think I'm doing okay (at least compared to where I started)! If I win, I expect we'll have to celebrate in the best way I know how - a giveaway! So click the link on the right side bar and follow Castle DIY on Bloglovin'

Bloglovin's August Competition!

Hey gang! 

If I don't say it enough, I have to say it now:

Thank y'all so much for helping me turn my little blog into something. Over the last few months I have seen some growth on the analytics of the site and it brings me so much joy to know that you're reading and sharing and passing Castle DIY along. I'm so very grateful. (Special shout out to my international readers. Knowing that I'm reaching people as far away as Russia, Italy and Australia just tickles me to death!)

This month, Bloglovin' is hosting a competition to increase traffic to little blogs like mine. They'll be featuring the blog who gains the most followers on their front page and I'm hoping to give them a reason to pick my little blog! But I need your help.

The contest is the "Bloglovin' Follower Challenge" and it's for up and coming bloggers! After 30 days, the blog with the most followers on Bloglovin' wins. Follow me on Bloglovin' in the month of August and give Castle DIY a chance! CLICK HERE to follow or use the link on the right side of the blog!

Thanks again y'all!

Tackling the To Do List: Mailbox Makeover

As promised, I am attempting to tackle my Summer To Do List and last weekend, my chosen project happened to be repainting my mailbox. I'd love to do a whole make-over on the space, but for now this will just have to do.

I updated the mailbox with a new coat of fresh black paint, hand-lettered our house number using liquid leaf and gave the flag a renewed vibrancy with some garnet spray paint. It's not perfect, but it's substantially better!

If your mailbox needs a little pick-me-up, don't hesitate. It was super easy and quick and I had the mailbox back on the post Sunday night before our mail-person was any the wiser.
