Brown Baggin’ It Taken to A Whole New Level

Domestic Imperfection brown paper flooring before

When Ashley from Domestic Imperfection started remodeling her boys’ room, one of the first things to go was the carpet.  Flooring can be pricey, and since she was working on a tight budget, Ashley had to find an inexpensive replacement.  She created flooring from craft paper–you could get the same look from brown paper shopping bags–and the result was pretty amazing.

Kammy's Korner house before

Kammy completed a super fun upcycling project for her house this summer, and she blogged about it at Kammy’s Korner.  This is definitely an idea to pin for use next spring, or to keep on file under “Things To Do With Extra Drawers.”  She completely reimagined some old dresser drawers as garden window boxes!

Day 2 Day Supermom chandelier before

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.

April from House By Hoff is back to share another rescue with us.  “Remember when I found a bunch of old windows on the side of the road and said that I had a lot of different ideas for them?” she asks.  “I wasn’t lying.  This will make my third (and probably final) old window project!”

Julie has been working on a big redecorating project and blogging about it at Redhead Can Decorate.  She’s giving her family room the look of a mountain lodge, and decided that she needed an ultra rustic accent table.  It wasn’t hard to find the materials for this one, Julie explains, “We had to cut down a dead elm tree in our yard due to safety concerns.”
