At her blog Plum Doodles, Sheila has been giving her keeping room a mini makeover. There's not room for a lot of furniture, but one thing she needed in there was a small table. "I decided to challenge myself and create a diy accent table from whatever I already had on hand," Sheila says.

Over at Rain on a Tin Roof, Jenna's friend knew how much Jenna wanted a chair with French country flair. So when that friend came across this cane chair at a yard sale, she passed it right along to Jenna.

At Night Owl Corner, Linda explains, "My dad built this play kitchen for my sister and I when we were kids. It's been up in the attic collecting dust for the past two decades until I decided to freshen it up for my own daughter.

Emily of Elizabeth Joan Designs tells us, "These stools were a curb find. I attempted to sell them at two different garage sales and there were no takers. After our last sale, I brought them into the house and my son loved being able to sit at the counter to “help” make dinner.
