Over at Cherished Bliss, Ashley had a little cloche that she'd picked up at a thrift store a while ago, but hadn't figured out how to use it, yet. She decided that since she gets excited about decorating for different seasons, she should turn this cloche into something that would work for a number of different seasons, holidays, and occasions.
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!
At My Life As Robin's Wife, Diane had a kitchen floor that was looking more than a little dated, thanks to some linoleum that had been there a little too long. She wanted to change up the look of the flooring, but didn't want to spend a lot of money to do so. And that's when she learned: you can paint linoleum.
Allison of The Golden Sycamore has had some pallets sitting in her driveway that she'd been meaning to repurpose. "Since we also have lots of furniture and random accessories in our basement, I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone," Allison tells us. "I took this large mirror that we weren’t using and a pallet to create an art display for our living room."
Debbie, from Confessions of a Plate Addict, participated in a Fall-themed no-sew decorating showcase. Not only did she manage to create a fabric project without a single seam, she recycled old shirts for the fabric! Go, Debbie! (Oh, and despite the impression the "before" photo might give...no cats were harmed in the making of this cute Fall craft.)
"My husband has always been sort of funny about saving our glass jars," confesses Justine at Mod Podge Rocks, "and with the mason jar craze happening, it certainly is handy having my husband’s hoard collection hanging around to experiment with!" Recently, she put a few of those glass jars to use with a pretty project that's perfect for fall and Halloween decor.
Over at The Scrap Shoppe, Michele confesses that she's had mixed feelings about all the crafts being done with book pages. She says, "I'm an avid reader (when I can) and couldn't imagine cutting into a precious book!" She recently decided that maybe she could part with this outdated dictionary from the 90's, though.
