Beat Up Dining Set Goes Glam

At Art is Beauty, Karin got a call from a relative saying another relative was clearing out all the old furniture in his basement.  She scored a couple of good freebies, and she also got this dining set that had seen better days.  The table and chairs were in such bad shape that Karin didn't work on it right away.

Drawers Full of Flowers

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!

Pallet Wood + Pretty Frame = Pure Fall Goodness

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."

What Pumpkins are Wearing This Season

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.)
