Carlee of Ladybird Ln had an awkward wall in her kitchen where a chimney had once been. She found a cute utensil hook rack that would be the perfect solution for the space, but it was too pricey and too small. Not a problem for Carlee, who was able to make an even larger hook rack with her own twist for a fraction of the cost. She says, “By finding a fun wrought iron decorative piece and thrift store utensils for mere pennies, I created a one-of-a-kind charming piece that is both functional and decorative. My aprons have never been so happy!”

Yellow Rosette Lampshade Makeover

Angie from Angie’s Roost had plans to make a pair of rosette-covered lampshades for the nightstands in her master bedroom. When a design challenge to recreate an item from Anthropologie came along, she kicked it into high gear and got her rosette making on. Angie first covered her inexpensive white shades with fabric so no white would be peeking through and then covered it with rosettes… lots and lots of rosettes. Angie doesn’t deny that this was a time-consuming process, but how pretty is her new shade???
