Over at her blog Cutesy Crafts, Jessica says she’s embarrassed to admit how ugly this black and gold colonial style spindle chair was before she gave it a makeover.  “From the hole in the cushion that the children enjoy pulling stuffing out of, to the teeth marks on the arm, it was WAY past time for a makeover,”  she laughs.

Hannah from Lovely Little Life has a funny story about how she acquired this birdhouse.  “It was my mom’s,  and when she moved it went in the yard sale pile,”  she explains.  “As a joke, my father-in-law put it out in front of my house to see if I would notice, ha ha!”  I left it there out of pure laziness, but after awhile it started to grow on me–eventually it called my name.”

At Pig and Paint, Alison originally purchased this lamp many years ago, adorned with a heavy 70′s rust-colored, bead-trimmed shade.  Over the years she held on to it, switching out the lamp shade for the one shown in this picture, but never really loving the look.  So finally she transformed it into a glamorous lamp that could live in her master bedroom!
