Scrap Wood Planter is Worth the Wait

Kristi at Making it in the Mountains says, "Every time I see one of these lovely planter boxes, I tell myself that I’m going to make one too . . . and then life gets busy. " She's finally making it happen, thanks to a scrap wood challenge and a stash of beautiful blue mason jars.

Going Rustic with Wooden Candle Sticks

Jamie is the owner of a large collection of stained wooden candlesticks. She says, "They all have a nice shape, but I'm not too much of a fan of the finish and some of them aren't in great condition." Jamie, who blogs at Anderson + Grant, hit on a solution for turning these (almost) beauties into gorgeous rustic pillar candle holders!

Adding Cool Flair & New Function to a Jewelry Box

Pauline knows how "one piece of furniture can set the tone or inspiration for the whole room." After introducing a beautiful new striped chair to her living room, she felt inspired to switch up some of her accessories to match it. Over at Club Chica Circle this old jewelry box found a new identity as a box for remote controls. (And hey, what living room doesn't need one of those?)

No Sewing Needed for Bandanna Table Runner

We're still going strong with the patriotic summer makeovers--there are just so many great ones to choose from! Today's rescue comes from Jamie at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom, who realized recently that with company coming over she probably ought to change out her Easter decor "to something more appropriate for Summer and the upcoming holidays." Some leftover bandannas from a previous project fit the bill!

A Global Solution to a Broken Light

Roeschel was almost done installing a beautiful brand-new light fixture when the glass cracked. (Noooo!) But hey, Roeschel is clearly a "make lemonades out of lemon" kind of gal. She hunted down supplies from around her house (specifically a thrift store globe) and got to work! Check out her new light fixture at DIY Showoff.

Rag Ribbon Garland for Summer Holidays

Michele blogs at The Scrap Shoppe, and she has a great no-sew way to use up some of the fabric scraps in your stash! Michele loves summer decorating, and keeps her stuff up "from Memorial Day to Labor Day." Her red white & blue rag ribbon garland definitely has me feeling patriotic, but I'm also thinking about other color combinations that would look great throughout the year!

That’s One Patriotic Pool Noodle

If you happen to have a pool noodle lying around (yep, I see all those nodding heads) then you are going to love this! With summer on the way, Camille realized that she didn't have "a nice red, white, and blue decoration to celebrate Memorial Day or Independence Day." So at Growing up Gabel she's showing us how she quickly turned a pool noodle into a sparkly, patriotic wreath, using duct tape and a few goodies from the dollar store.

Stepladder Performs Double Duty

Debbie at Refresh Restyle has big plans for a backyard "outdoor oasis" and says, "I give myself bonus points for using things that I already have." A short ladder from her stash is the perfect candidate for a little multi-purpose makeover, making its debut as a side table AND planter!

Anthropologie on the Free: Geometric Pendant Lamp

When you see wooden skewers you might think of summer grilling (mmmm . . . grilling) but Amy's mind went in a completely different direction! Instead of going the shish kabob route, she used hers to create an absolutely free Anthropologie-inspired geometric pendant lamp. She's showing us how it's done at Delineate Your Dwelling.
