Friday Favorites: Easy Building Projects + Porch Swing Shed
Friday again — HOORAY! And it’s almost feeling like spring here, and like it might stick around and not snow again… maybe! This week’s Friday Favorites features some beautiful spaces, as always, and some great building projects — some easy, some a little more intensive, but all beautiful and DIY!

Favorite easy build:Jaime Costiglio build this easy and affordable mirror with storage and my kiddos each need one! Just enough space to keep the hair supplies organized without having all.the.things.everywhere.
Favorite nook: I can’t decide which area I like more, the reading nook or the open closet space! I’d have to be way more organized and minimalist than I am right now, but I love the functionality of that closet that @andreak_covelladesigns shared in the #imaremodelaholic tag!
Favorite BIG style on a small budget: This big colorful art piece at Lantern Lane Designs was affordable and easy, woohoo! And the colors are gorgeous!
Favorite new shoe storage idea: Shoe storage is a perpetual problem at our house. We use our IKEA cubbies (although I’ve been wanting to build one of these mail sorters for shoe storage for ages, too!) and I like this easy build from BuildSomething. Perfect for a garage or back door, and easy to customize when it’s time to pull out the winter boots, too!
Favorite color to paint furniture: Okay, I could have a new favorite furniture color every week. From coral to reddish orange to yellow to blue — I like bright bold colored furniture a lot. So when I saw this beautiful build that @abbottsathome painted this gorgeous teal color, a new favorite was born. Now I just have to decide where to use it in my home!
Favorite neutral: Neutrals can be so calming, and this bedroom by An Inspired Nest captures the neutral calm while mixing patterns and textures impeccably, from the bedspread to the baskets to the rug.
Favorite black and white but not boring: Speaking of monochromatic and beautiful, this bathroom does it so well!
You can find the striped shower curtain here and while we couldn’t find the exact art prints on the wall, we found some similar digital downloads available over on Etsy that make art like this super affordable — or wouldn’t this be adorable with custom portraits of your dog(s) like this!
Favorite outdoor space: I’m ignoring the fact that “spring” so far here in Utah has looked more like a ping-pong game between snow and 70 degree temps and instead gawking over this gorgeous porch swing cabana-style shed. It takes a lot to replace this firepit pergola with swings at the top of my outdoor wish list, but I think this might do it We saw it over on Facebook and tracked it down to House Plus Love, so go see more photos and get the details there.
Favorite barn doors: You knew I couldn’t go a week without finding a new door to love! This whole setup is lovely and those beautiful wooden barn doors are just the icing on the @realitydaydream cake.
Have a great week!
