Do you have kids home for the holiday break and a few acorns leftover from your fall crafting? Then here's a fun little craft project to keep the kids busy for a little while, brought to you by Anu of Nalle's House.
Over at One Dog Woof, ChiWei had an abundance of scrap wood and a terrific idea: turn those scraps into a lamp! If you'd like to make a similar project, she recommends using pieces of wood with straight sides and corners.
One cold day when Karin and her husband were out on a walk, they spotted this old table sticking out of a dumpster at their neighbor's house. With permission from their neighbor, they fished the table out and took it home. Karin--who blogs at Art is Beauty--knew that with a lot of TLC and a couple of chairs, it could become a trendy bistro table!
Everyone except Jenna who passed by this metal cart on the curb saw it as another piece of junk. Jenna, on the other hand, could see the potential it had to become a sexy bar cart. If you need a fabulous rolling bar in time for your New Year's Eve celebration, check out this rescue at Rain on a Tin Roof.
Over at Revived by Delia, Delia says that she's had this nightstand waiting in a pile of furniture that needs makeover for so long she doesn't even remember where it came from. "Judging by the coat of dirt it was covered in, it had been neglected for some time," she notes.
Krista of The Happy Housie came up with an adorable paint stick project this holiday season: rustic stars! It's definitely something that could be incorporated year-round into her decor, and the hardware store was nice enough to give her the paint sticks for free!
"A little while back, my neighbor was throwing out this old window screen," tells Shanna at Restoration Redoux, "and I told my husband that I knew I would someday find a use for it. He of course told me I never would. I love it when I’m right."
