Marcy blogs at Day 2 Day Supermom.  Admittedly, she has a “thing” for Mason jars.  So when she saw an outdoor chandelier on Pinterest made from canning jars, she knew she had to make one of her own.  After all, Marcy had plenty of empty Mason jars, and it wasn’t hard to scavenge a nice looking piece of wood from her husband’s project pile.

Over at Our Pinteresting Family, Meghan shares another great use for pallet wood.  “We had a few pallets left in the garage from last summer. I mentioned to Rob that it may be time to find them a new home or put them on Free-cycle.”  Rob, however, had a better idea, that included upcycling the pallets and some old belts from Meghan’s closet.
