Here’s a fun project from Kendra at Pots, Pans, & Paintbrushes.  She needed a way to display wedding and party invitations that would double as a style prop for her graphic designs.  Kendra salvaged an old picture frame from her MeMaw’s toss pile.

Over at Marty’s Musings, Marty still had one of her daughter’s outgrown Easter  Dresses.  It had been worn to pieces, but one day the eyelet, pretty pink sash, and tulle petticoat caught Marty’s eye and gave her an idea.

Jaye from Just Tryin’ to Make Cents of It All tells us, “We needed a TV Console for our new TV and I just knew I could find something at my favorite thrift store.”  She found a heavy-duty dresser (circa 1970)that probably came as a matching set with a groovy waterbed.

I love this re-imagined sewing table from Courtney of Sweet C’s Designs.   How many times have you seen one of these old sewing machine tables at a thrift store or garage sale?  Courtney had a brilliant idea to turn one into a drink station.
