I have so much fun seeing how my friends repurpose their rescues into decorations for upcoming holidays. Here's another one: Kathy from Petticoat Junktion turned an old grill rack into a darling spider web for Halloween!
One thing never ceases to amaze me about all the rescues I feature here, and that's the unbelievable amount of imagination my friends have when it comes to seeing possibilities in things others would pass by. This lovely Autumn chalkboard sign by Kelsey at Tattered & Inked is a perfect example. Would you believe it used to be a crib?
What could be more fun than seeing a brand-new one year old taste cake for the first time? Well, seeing a brand new one year old taste cake for the first time while sitting in the happiest of high chairs is definitely going to be more fun! That has been Lynda's goal over at Oh So Shabby.
Over at A Little Claireification, this dresser was the first piece of furniture Claire purchased after she graduated from college. It was in her bedroom until she and her husband could afford a bedroom set, then went to live in her oldest son's room and has been there ever since.
When Sara, from Thrifty Treasures, found this footstool, it was looking pretty frumpy. Faded upholstery in a dated fabric covered a lumpy, bumpy shape. There was something about the shape of the little claw feet, though, that made her think the stool had some possibilities.
Over at Old Things New, Patti hates to admit that this old bench was in her bedroom. The upholstery was dated, and the tasseled trim had been enjoyed way too much by the family dog back in its puppy stage.
"Not long ago someone called me to tell me they saw a table in the ditch near my house. When you love junk people start calling you to rescue it," laughs Rhonda at Obsessive and Creative. Since the fiberboard tabletop had been sitting in the water, it wasn't salvageable, but Rhonda thought she could do something with the rest.
Here's a great little Halloween project that anyone can do, brought to us by Jen of Eat. Sleep. Make. Jen had her sister in law save baby food jars for her so that she could use them to make these cute monsters.
"After seeing a ton of painted Mason jar projects on Pinterest I’ve been saving up every glass bottle/jar that I come across," says Vidya at What's Ur Home Story. "So it was no big surprise that these didn’t end up in my recycle bin."
Over at Chase the Star, Barbara has been working on updating her kitchen and dining area with lighter, brighter colors. These barstools had already been through a lot when they arrived at her house (check out that scary before picture), so this was their second rescue under Barbara's capable hands.
