Chelsea, the Pinterior Designer, has been working on updating the kitchen in her home to suit her personal style since the day she bought the house. I think a lot of us can relate to just how much work it can be to update a kitchen on a budget! Chelsea had done just about everything she could to the kitchen without a demolition: painting the cabinets and walls, updating appliances. Everything looked so much better, but somehow the laminate counters looked worse.
Coco keeps track of her projects at A Dash of Coco. When she spotted this bench on her neighbors' curb, she was torn. It's the dilemma of many a roadkill rescuer when faced with neighborhood roadkill: grab it and run, or ask for permission to turn their junk into something fabulous? In Coco's case, she went and asked for it, and they neighbors were beyond thrilled to let it enjoy a new life at her house. Hooray!

When Megan from Rappsody in Rooms found this pendant light, she was thrilled. "The shape was the to die for (hello hexagons!). However, the electrical was on the fritz," she says. "I kept the fixture around, waffling on whether I want to rewire it (a new lighting kit would do the trick) or turn it into something unexpected."
"I don't seem to be able to turn down decent free furniture even when I DO NOT need it," laughs Joan of Nicer Than New. "A few months ago, I was given a child's desk and dresser. I offered them to my niece and I painted them up for my 7-year-old GREAT nephew."
Kelly is sharing a really cute, upcycled craft that's perfect for working on with kids over at her blog Live, Laugh, Rowe. Along with a few other basic arts/crafts supplies, the only thing you need to make these not-so-spooky spiders is a few bottle caps.
