Stylish Lamp Makeover

A Stylish Interior lamp before

Karen blogs at A Stylish Interior.  She explains, “This old lamp was a Home Depot purchase from 10 years ago.  I have never really liked it, but it provided the right light and followed me from house to house.  It was one of those things that I’ve been wanting to replace for a long time, but never got around to it.”

Dip Containers to Drawer Organizers

House by Hoff dip containers before

Over at House by Hoff, April tells us, “The other night I was emptying out our refrigerator and throwing out the “yucky stuff”.  I was about to throw away these four little dip containers, but I paused, examined them closer, and realized that they were kinda cute.  I had no idea what I would use them for, but an idea emerged soon enough!”

Pretty Yellow Table

Shanna of Restoration Redoux has another amazing transformation to share.  This one started with an interesting table she found that was in really bad shape.  It was filthy and wobbly, but had a carved and painted top that almost looked like something you’d hang on the wall.

Krista of The Happy Housie pulled this old colander out of the free pile at her friend’s garage sale.  “She told me that she had used it in her garden and that got my ol’ wheels spinning,” Krista said.  “I was planning to tackle the deck this weekend so I thought that it had great potential as a little planter for some Hens ’n’ Chicks that I wanted to repot.”

Frumpy Art to Fun Art

Over at 3 Little Greenwoods, Ashley had an old piece of art with a “Little House on the Prairie” vibe that just wasn’t the feeling she wanted to convey in her home.  Inspired by a funky pillow that she saw on Pinterest, Ashley decided to make her own art, using the old canvas.

Occasional Table from Old Barn Wood

Oksana of A Sparrow’s Haven is an oil painter.  She’d been scouting for the perfect weathered barn to paint, and thought she’d found just the right one.  But when she went back to the site with her paints, the barn was gone!  Unfortunately for Okasana’s painting, the barn had been bulldozed.  Fortunately for her home decor needs, the farmer told her she could take away some of the wood.
