Guest Post: Our Fifth House

I hope you are enjoying all of the wonderful guests I've had this week for you!  They are all so talented and it is such an honor for me having them here.

I have often thought that Carmel from Our Fifth House is one of the best kept secrets out in blogland.  This girl is so talented!  I first connected with Carmel because of the name of her blog- we are on our fourth house, so I understand the need to nest when you finally feel like you've found your home that you get to stay in!!
I hope you enjoy getting to know her today.  Be sure you check out her blog and see all of the amazing transformations she has done.


Hi all!  I'm Carmel from Our Fifth House, and I'm really excited to be here today!  Denise is one of my very first blog friends, even though we've never met in real life, I definitely consider her a friend.  She and I both started blogging about the same time, and she is one of the sweetest, most supportive bloggers I've "met"!  

With spring in full swing and summer fast approaching I thought I'd share a couple of outdoor paint projects that I completed last year.  I love a good diy project. Although, I'll admit in the summer I'd much rather be poolside which is why I love a good fast and easy project.  What could be faster or easier than spray paint?  

I took this old chair and turned into a plant stand.

When in doubt spray it white - you can't go wrong, right?! 

Although a bright blue can be just as a pretty and add a little fun to your outdoor settings too!  At least that is what I was thinking last year when I sprayed these urns. 

I love what a can of spray paint can do, don't you?  It's quick and fun and gets me back to perusing magazines and sipping margaritas while the pool boy fans me - HA - I wish!  

Thanks so much Denise for having me over today!
