Showing Off Tracie

Well hello!! I’m back this weekend to show off another fabulous DIY blogger – I know you’ll love her – it’s been waaaay too long since I showed someone off, so I’m excited to brag on another great blogger!

Tracie with Cleverly Inspired always has something fun up her sleeve – whether it be crafty goodness, DIY fun or some YUMMY recipes:


I love her header! Too cute! :)

One of her latest projects was transforming her bathroom vanity – here’s the before:

Of course, there’s the go-to project – painting the cabinets. But then she did the unexpected! (And I love that!)

She used an old window shutter as the new countertop:

Isn’t that lovely? (And yes, you can use wood near a sink – you just need to poly and caulk the heck out of it!)

You can see more about that project here.

We all know spray paint is the bee’s knees, and Tracie proved that once again with this $2 sconce:


She sprayed it a beautiful blue, then added some pretty little crystal gems to glam it up a bit:


Double thump to the chest for the spray paint!! I love how this turned out!

I’m totally, completely jealous of how pretty her garage is! She transformed it from this:

To this:

All with just some paint and fabric! And that cart is a changing table – brillz. ;) I so need a spray paint station like that.

You can see more about that project here.

One of my very favorites is her foyer redo – it was pretty to start with:


But with some paint, trim and a new light, it’s stunning now!:

foyer redo SWOON!! Love it! What a great first impression!

She’s also a crafty chick (I’m working on some crafty goodness myself this weekend – it’s been way too long!). I love how she used copies of her mother’s recipes to create a super cute recipe box:


I just think that is lovely. :)

And speaking of recipes – here. you. go:

You can click on the photos to get to the recipes. And yes, I totally chose comfort foods on purpose. Tomorrow we’re down to 80 degrees here and that feels positively winter-like compared to this summer! I see that crock pot mac and cheese in our future…yummo!

I hope you’ll give Tracie a visit – I promise you’ll be hooked! And you’ll want to bake something. Trust me. :)

If you are interested in being highlighted, send an email to thriftydecorchick (at) gmail (dot) com and title it SHOW ME OFF! Send a me a few links to your favorite projects and maybe some photos as well. I’ve got a long list of great bloggers to highlight, but I’d love to add a few more!
