A Mini Kitchen Renovation

At Night Owl Corner, Linda explains, “My dad built this play kitchen for my sister and I when we were kids.  It’s been up in the attic collecting dust for the past two decades until I decided to freshen it up for my own daughter. I told my Dad he did a great job building it but it needed a woman’s touch in terms of color!”

Trashed Bar Stools Take a Number and Come Inside

Emily of Elizabeth Joan Designs tells us, “These stools were a curb find. I attempted to sell them at two different garage sales and there were no takers. After our last sale, I brought them into the house and my son loved being able to sit at the counter to “help” make dinner. Their original look didn’t match anything in our home, so I opted to give them a makeover to match our dining table.”

Marcy blogs at Day 2 Day Supermom.  Admittedly, she has a “thing” for Mason jars.  So when she saw an outdoor chandelier on Pinterest made from canning jars, she knew she had to make one of her own.  After all, Marcy had plenty of empty Mason jars, and it wasn’t hard to scavenge a nice looking piece of wood from her husband’s project pile.

April from House By Hoff is back to share another rescue with us.  “Remember when I found a bunch of old windows on the side of the road and said that I had a lot of different ideas for them?” she asks.  “I wasn’t lying.  This will make my third (and probably final) old window project!”
