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.
Jamie from So Much Better With Age bought this small butcher block table off of Craigslist years ago, and she's loved having it in her kitchen. She never quite liked how the table looked with her dark floors, however--it was just too much dark wood in one space.
At Elizabeth Joan Designs, Erin scored these twin barcaloungers free from a Craigslist ad. "And they were is great condition," Erin notes. "No funky smell. No nasty stains. Only a small amount of dust and hair clung on for its life as I vacuumed them off."
"I believe this was one of those small cabinets that go above a toilet or perhaps in a laundry room," says Sherry at Upcycle Addict. "It was in perfect condition… nothing wrong with it. It was sitting on a curb along with a small mountain of stuff that had been tossed after clean up from the tornado."
Joan blogs at Nicer Than New. When she spotted this chair on the curb in her neighbourhood, she made a u-turn and loaded it up, duct tape and all. On closer inspection, she discovered that the chair was made of teak in Denmark. "By the tag, I also believe he was a big deal during the '70s," Joan says.
Over at Life on the Bay Bush, Amanda has been sprucing up her laundry room. When she needed some artwork for one wall, she was having some difficulty finding something that worked for the room and that she liked. So she got a little help from Barbie.
Tracie from Cleverly Inspired picked up this light at the local Re-Store years ago. It had sat in her garage for so long that she had almost decided to donate at it back to Re-Store! " I am so happy I decided to be patient until this idea popped in my head," Tracie tells us.
Deb blogs at India Pied-a-Terre. This little cabinet was a contribution to their household from her husband's bachelor days. "I've hated this Danish style cabinet and was ready it get rid of it and replace it. The cabinet shook when you opened and closed the doors and the doors were always crooked. Plus it was boring!" she exclaims.
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.
Last year, Karen of A Stylish Interior bought some craft pumpkins and had some fun painting them with turquoise stripes. As you know, craft pumpkins stick around for a while, so this year Karen decided to give hers a new look.
Over at Cherished Bliss, Ashley had a little cloche that she'd picked up at a thrift store a while ago, but hadn't figured out how to use it, yet. She decided that since she gets excited about decorating for different seasons, she should turn this cloche into something that would work for a number of different seasons, holidays, and occasions.
