Crazy for Blue

Crazy for Blue:  30+ Blue DIY Home Projects.  With links to tutorials for all of these projects!

I’ve always been drawn to the color blue; it has a calming quality especially when used in home decor.  Blue is the color of the summer sky, the rolling ocean waves, robin’s eggs, and the little box from Tiffany’s filled with sparkly perfection.  My bedroom is painted blue and my  living room is filled with blue accents.  Check out these beautiful professionally decorated blue rooms:

Of course we’d all love for a designer to come and decorate our home but how many people can actually afford that?  (Not me!)  A great way to add more blue to your home decor is with DIY inspiration from some amazing bloggers.  Below are over 30 makeovers to drool over and be motivated by – enjoy!

Clicking any of the links below will take you to that blog post with more photos and details of the project.

    Thanks so much for including my buffet and bowling ball in your blue grouping! Blue is the new black, you know (ok, some say that Orange Is The New Black, but that’s a whole ‘nother story).
