Hi! It's Anita with Cedar Hill Farmhouse hosting The Scoop this week.


I've been super busy lately with some very exciting things. More on that later, but in the meantime, I have two great chair projects from last week that I thought you might enjoy. The first one is about sprucing up $5 thrift chairs.

Okay...I could go on and on, but I know you are ready to get to the linky party,
so here is our guest host for this week!


Hi everyone!  I'm Heather from Setting for Four and I'm so excited to be here guest hosting ‘The Scoop’ this week!

 Setting for Four Home Decor DIY and Lifestlye Blog

I'm a military wife and Mom to two teen boys – our oldest is in Military college and our youngest is in Grade 9. They are both amazing sons and it such an honor to not only be a military wife but also a military Mom! I started my blog 3 years ago, baby steps first then full time in 2013. I love to DIY and decorate my home inside and out, and create a stylish and comfortable haven for our family of four!  I also started my interior design career last year and love helping others solve their design dilemmas and beautify their homes! As a military family we have moved many, many times and often have to be creative with fitting our furniture in each of our homes.  We purchased our lovely 6 year old home two years ago and are in the process of painting it top to bottom, updating the lighting and kitchen and decorating it room by room.

Here are some of my recent posts:

I also offer online decorating services including Mood Boards, sourcing and answer questions via email; here is how I helped Raeleen with her decor dilemma: Reader Redesign – Fireplace Makeover

I have to admit it was super difficult to pick the features from all of your amazing DIY’s and beautiful projects from last week!  I hope that you find my feature picks as inspiring as I do!  
First up, these No Sew Uphostered Chair Makeover from My Creative Days. I love the vintage floral fabric that Lindsay used on these estate sale chairs! Paired with the white paint these chairs are simply gorgeous!

Next, this fabulous Ikea Bookcase/Chest of Drawers Hack from Tasha at A Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body (love your blog name Tasha!). Tasha took some basic Ikea pieces and with ingenuity and paint turned them into these custom furniture pieces for her twin girls’ bedroom!:

Graphic art is so hot right now and I love Angela’s metallic DIY Ampersand Valentine Art from Life in Velvet. This is such an easy DIY and would be perfect for a Picture Gallery Wall or part of a table vignette like this:

Rachel at Maison de Pax turned what she referred to as her‘Swiss Chalet’ library bookcases into these trimmed out beauties with DIY Decorative Molding! Check out the step by step tutorial to see how she did it!
