Blue Ribbon Award: Make a daybed from doors!

Mar 2nd, 2011

Getting a blue ribbon from All Things Thrifty is meant to be a prestigious award. I don’t just shell these awards out to just “anyone,” ya know!?! The project has to “WOW” me, and although I am impressed EVERY single DAY out there in blogland, a blue ribbon is a bit beyond being impressed. It makes me FLAB-ER-GASTED of the creativity gone into the project. The project goes into my “inspiration” folder for the future, and I think about the project all day because I loved it so much. It makes me a tiny. bit. jealous. It makes me want to meet the project’s owner.
If you have seen a project out there that has blown you away and that fits this criteria:
1: Ultra Unique
2. Demonstrates Originality
3. Crazily Creative
4. Thrifty
5. and you LOVE it!
It qualifies for a blue ribbon from All Things Thrifty.

This project qualifies for a blue ribbon award. In fact, when my husband got home from work yesterday, I just HAD to show him this project! This project was completed over at Perfectly Imperfect.

She made doors into an amazing daybed! I am in love with the end result! Check out her post here.

I’ll tease you with a few pictures.

Are you dying…….like I was!?!?

I was “WOW”d to say the least.

Go check her out over at Perfectly Imperfect.

    I just wanted to let you know I was recently at my Home Depot and they had the Ralph Lauren glaze for under $4! I imagine they are getting rid of it, but thought I would let you know in case your HD is doing the same thing. By the way, how long do you think a can of that will be good for?

  21. Wowee, I didn't see the final product coming! What a makeover. Maybe I should let the husband get all those tools he's been dreaming about.

    Wanted to say thank you for your comments about friend-making on my blog. I need to be courageous like you.

    This is great! Reminds me of a friend's queen headboard she built from an old garage door. It is amazing.
