~now that's clever~

Here are some clever ideas that anyone can do!
Via Martha Stewart, stack your benches
to create an instant shelf! From Better Homes and Gardens,
re purpose a vintage railing to hold your mail!

Another clever idea from Better Homes and Gardens,

Make a ceiling medallion out of an old frame and vintage sheet music!
{Kasey, you need to do this in your master bedroom!}

And how cute is this?
Cottage living suggests using an old coat rack
for pots in your kitchen!

Have any vintage clock faces laying around?
Hang them from a chain or ribbon
for an eye catching wall display.
Via Better Homes and Gardens

Here's a clever idea for that farmhouse look!
Instead of traditional window treatments,
hang dishtowels from clothespins!
Thank you Farmhouse Wares!

My head is spinning!
So many great ideas!
Happy Friday my friends!

I love the pot rack idea...and really like the actual rack and the bead board wall. I have all of the ingredients needed to bead one entire wall of my back porch...I do it!

Melanie. A while back you had a posting about a laundry room sign. I believe it was a white room with a black sign on the wall. I tried looking back through your posts to view it again as I am still thinking about it. Can you post that again or send me the link? Please please? You can email me or post it on my blog.
Thanks, Lindsay Vancouver,WA

LOVE your work! I did something similar to the ceiling medallion in my bathroom. Pls check it out
You are a great inspiration to all of us bloggers! How do you like your IKEA sectional so far? I too was questionalable about purchasing and upholstered piece from there. But Love the look. You did a Fab job in your family room.
