Spring Sparkles

Before starting my workday, I like to enjoy my morning coffee and catch up blog reading. I found this little gem this morning and love her or hate her, Martha Stewart's team always comes up with some genius ideas. I especially love a project that takes an ordinary object and turns it into extraordinary. This one quickly caught my DIY eye. It hardly seems possible that this adorable orange and white tray was once a baking sheet. Yellow is normally my "happy color" but right now, I can't get enough of oranges and corals! This decorative tray is a great way to brighten up your house for Spring or even to wrap up with celophane and tie with some raffia or a huge bow and bring it with you to your next dinner party as a hostess gift. I have a few springy projects up my sleeve for the long holiday weekend and you better believe this will be making the list. I'll be sure to post my own how-to once I complete one of these babies myself.

If you can't wait another minute, directions and the official "How To" from the Martha experts themselves can be found here. If any of you decide ot tackle this yourself, please send me a picture! I would love to see what you come up with and how you use your tray.

The sun is shining, I am not wearing boots of any kind and a light and fresh and girly pink polish is about to make its way onto my nails. I choose to believe that this hint of Spring, (and not the extranneous amount of caffeine running through my body) is putting some serious sparkle in my day.
