Hi, lovelies! We here in Michigan spent a cozy weekend dealing with -20 wind chills (yep, my car almost didn’t start on Sunday). The frigid temperatures basically meant we hibernated for 48 hours, which wasn’t a bad thing at all. For Valentine’s we opted out of our annual bucket o’ KFC and made some delicious ribeyes with roasted potatoes. However you celebrated (or did not celebrate), I hope you guys had an awesome weekend of love!
PS: The brilliant Kenji from Serious Eats totally schooled me on pan searing steak. Turns out I’ve been doing it wrong this whole time! We tried the whole flipping ever minute or so, which went totally against everything in my soul, and got the most gorgeously crisp crust with perfectly cooked meat. I’ll definitely be using this recipe again and again.

Did you see the BEFORE photo of this mud room? It’s truly amazing what a little paint and elbow grease can create, and I’m sure Virginia’s mom is enjoying the beautiful transformation her daughter created.

We had so many inspiring projects linked up last week, and here are the 5 favorites:

Ashley from Domestic Imperfection shared this absolutely stunning DIY sunburst mirror. Not only does this mirror make a statement in their guestroom, but it cost less than $20!

 If you have a sweet tooth then these red velvet mason jar cakes from Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles should do the trick. Mason Jar + Cake = Perfection. 

 Not only is this bathroom transformation from Bigger Than The Three Of Us beautiful, but it was also their first time doing any electrical, plumbing, tile work, etc. If that doesn’t inspire you, I don’t know what will.

When Anderson and Grant spotted some Pottery barn wall art she was instantly inspired, and if you ask me the outcome is even better than the original! Click here to check out her Cutting Board Wall Art.

If you love Ikea Hacks then you’ll love this modern and stylish floating sideboard from Petite Modern Life. Head on over to view the full tutorial and check out the rest of her Scandi living room reveal while you’re there.
