At Nalle’s House, Nalle loves the classic lines of Aalto stools, and has been hoping to add a few to her home.  “Unfortunately, splurging on the stools wasn’t in the budget at the moment,” she confesses.  “My parents did, however, have a few very beat up knockoff Aalto stools.  They were the stools that we used in our kitchen when I was growing up.”

Over at The Happy Housie, Krista tells us, “I was out for a walk with my family the other day when I happened upon an old piece of pallet wood that had somehow ended up on the side of the road.  I had wanted to make a sign out of pallet wood for a while so I quickly grabbed it and ported it back home with me.”

Karen blogs at A Stylish Interior.  She explains, “This old lamp was a Home Depot purchase from 10 years ago.  I have never really liked it, but it provided the right light and followed me from house to house.  It was one of those things that I’ve been wanting to replace for a long time, but never got around to it.”

Over at House by Hoff, April tells us, “The other night I was emptying out our refrigerator and throwing out the “yucky stuff”.  I was about to throw away these four little dip containers, but I paused, examined them closer, and realized that they were kinda cute.  I had no idea what I would use them for, but an idea emerged soon enough!”
