"I Love These Ideas" Sunday

Here at At Home Redesigns, we're celebrating our second (week) anniversary of "I Love These Ideas" Sunday with some super ideas for stealing. (OK: Posted this on Saturday by mistake. So pretend it's Sunday. Except you don't have to go to work tomorrow! Unless you work on which case, I'm sorry...)

This great idea for making paper table lanterns comes from Design*Sponge, which includes a how-to-here.

Here's an idea close to mother suggests re-using an item. This is a mailbox that she used at her previous home. She didn't need it at her new house, so she stores face clothes in it instead. Great idea!

My mother doesn't have a blog, but she does sell super popular hand-crafted, personalized Christmas ornaments at Christmas Memories.

This week Sanctuary Arts at Home offers a great tutorial on how to distress furniture. Check it out.

Sisters Kari and Kijsa explain how to create a tray with photos and other mementos. A wonderful idea that is pretty and useful. See how to here.

Finally, Fancy Pants brings to our attention a great tool for painting objects. The Painter's Pyramid lets you get to all sides and the bottom of an object at the same time. A time-saver. I love it!

Mary, thanks for visiting my Blog! I love the lantern idea. I may do that for my daughter's dormroom but instead use those flameless candles. That will give her a more homey feel whenever she wants to relax.
I am in MS right now and a friend of mine is giving me a chair to take back to TX whenever I return home in about a month. I plan to have the chair re-covered and will post a before and after on my Blog whenever the chair is done.
