Day 2 Day Supermom chandelier before

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.

Score! Quite scratched but the perfect size,” Sarah exclaims.

Cindy blogs over at DIY Beautify.  She’s got a double rescue to tell us about today.  One that started with Cindy dumpster diving for some chairs.  She says, “They were GROSS. Bad paint job with bad paint. Lots of drips and globs. And sticky. And the seat cushions?  Eeeek!”  After some TLC, Cindy got them to look like this…
