Guest Post: They DIY Showoff

I have another guest post treat for you guys today! It is Roeshel from {The DIY Showoff}! Roeshel and I "met" through the Roomspiration Blog Hop and I was flattered when she agreed to write a guest post! Ok, truth be told this was supposed to happen last Friday while I was away, but I couldn't get it scheduled in time. Fine by me as I'm having trouble staying on top of everything this week anyway. I know I have a lot fo promises lingering, i.e. the guest room and kitchen, but I swear I'll get to it! Bear with me here!

But back to Roeshel - she's great!...

 Hi Just a Touch of Gray Readers!  I am so excited and so honored to be here today guest blogging for Rachel. She's such a sweet blog friend with a beautiful style. Her home is gorgeous! You've drooled over her amazing house tour, right?

I'm Roeshel, (me---->Welcome!) from The DIY Show Off blog. If we haven't had the pleasure of meeting, I started blogging a couple of years ago to journal the progress of our farmhouse renovation. I (along with Mr. DIY) share our D-I-Y projects we complete as time and money allow. We learn as we go. We make a great team and love turning our old neglected farmhouse into our dream home.

You're welcome to visit and tour our home. We LOVE company!
I'm also an official DIY Club girl, a group of fun and creative friends who get crafty with some great products. There's also a monthly project contest with some amazing prizes. 
Some of my favorite home improvement projects:
Our Recent Kitchen Remodel

Guest Bedroom Reveal with painted floor tutorial.

Dining Room
A couple of my favorite decorating projects...I might have a slight addiction to wreaths.

and DIY gifts

Every week, I host a DIY Project Parade where I share a project we've done or feature a DIY Show Off reader.

I had a blast working with fellow blogger, Remodelaholic, designing this room...

Every month, I share a Pinterest day dream...

Right now, for Fall there's also a weekly DIY Fall Festival.
 The DIY Show Off
I love that through blogging, I meet others who share our DIY passion. I've made so many talented and creative friends including Rachel.  I love being inspired by real people and their real homes and real decorating.  Thanks to the lovely Rachel for having me and I hope you'll pop over to the DIY Show Off and share your creativity and inspiration.

Thanks for sharing, Roeshel! Isn't her kitchen amazing? And you guys really should have a closer look of her recent guest room re-do. She painted a rug on the floor and it truly looks amazing. 
Well that's all for today. I hope you guys have a great day! It's almost the weekend!


  1. Love Roeshel's blog and she is sooo nice and encouraging.

  2. Rachel, I'm so glad we're blog friends! You're such an inspiration and I'm honored to have had the chance to meet your readers! :)
