Basic Fan Goes Retro Glam

Jessa from Sparkle is grateful for any extra air she can get on hot summer days, so this portable fan is a permanent part of her decor during the summer months. She thought the basic black design was just something she had to live with until she spotted a picture of the Vornado Vintage Collection VFAN, one day, and was inspired by the two-tone, retro color scheme.

Sometimes All That Glitters Is Gold…But You Still Don’t Want It!

At Homework, Carolyn shares how she rescued a little table that used to belong to her father-in-law.  "Based on the underside of the table and the inside of the little cabinet, I believe it was once plain dark wood," she says.  "At some point the gold leaf effect was added. We’ve been using the table in our living room and even though gold is making a comeback, it didn’t really match anything in our house." Homework gold leaf table before

Golden Elephant

Over at Now At Home Mom, Ingrid shares a project that has special meaning to her family.  "Ever since I can remember, my mother had elephants around the house.  She always used to say; an elephant in the room brings luck when the trunk points up towards the sky," Ingrid explains.  Ingrid and her mom have passed this leather statue back and forth between their homes for more than 13 years.

Faux Gilded Pinecones

At What's Ur Home Story, Vidya has a great way to dress up pine cones for Christmas decor.  If you have a yard with pine trees or live near a park or nature preserve that has them, then pine cones will be free and plentiful at this time of year.
