Greetings all, and happy fall! It’s raining today and the leaves are falling from all of the trees. It’s pretty but kind of sad, I’ll miss all those gorgeous autumn colors. Today it finally feels like winter is on its way, brrrrr! To take our minds off the approaching chill of winter, how about a look at some inspiring projects from around the blogosphere? Abi and I teamed up again to bring you our recent favorites.
Here’s a wonderful wood accent wall, this one made from pallets by Chris and her husband over at Just A Girl, perfect in her son’s room!
This Drexel Heritage campaign desk was brought back to life by Mary at Because I Like to Decorate. She’s got an all natural recipe for polishing up brass hardware too.
Traci and her husband built a brand new pantry themselves! Traci has a new paint sprayer that she raves about, read all about it at Beneath My Heart.
An old suitcase is a great object to transform into a pet bed, get the how to on this project over at Camille Styles.
We all love jute for its texture, but you’ll never believe how the form for this jute bowl was made by Kara at Happy Go Lucky. So incredibly clever!
For even more jute twine inspiration, Kristi from Addicted to Decorating rounded up 45 jute projects, I spy lots of favorites there. (image via Whip It Up)
Whitney built this useful shelf coat rack for under $40 from supplies from a home improvement store, bravo girl! Get the full tutorial over at Shanty 2 Chic.
Dollar store felt snowflakes transformed Holly’s mantel over at My Sister’s Suitcase, such an easy and charming idea for the holidays!
Jenna at SAS Interiors is so resourceful! She turned drop cloths into pretty placemats with a fab topstitch detail, just lovely.
Finally, two beautiful holiday magazines arrived online, don’t miss both Sweet Paul and Gifted – you’ll be inspired!
Wow, I love all of these projects so much! What’s your favorite? Thanks Abi for helping me round up some of these fantastic sources of inspiration. You can visit with Abi over at her blog Gadding Gal and don’t miss her recent table transformation, so pretty!
