It's Friiiiiiiiday!  Woo-hoo!  And even better, a holiday weekend!  How about we kick it off with some awesome projects and reading material for all of your extra lounging time?  Sounds like a good idea to me!

My favorite project from August was a recent one, my newly recovered fur ottomans.  If you missed that post, I used a fur coat that I had from the thrift store and a hefty dose of inspiration from a very pricey Horchow bench.

Although summer is nearing an end and we were all still super busy with activities, but my co-hosts managed to crank out some amazing projects this month.

Kris hung a set of vintage-inspired nesting crates on the wall in her kitchen.  In addition to adding some warmth and texture, they are super functional!  They double as storage for her high-use items for the table.  Smart and beautiful!

Lisa drew inspiration from a special trip with her husband, and made a vintage looking sign to represent one of their favorite vacation spots and all of the memories they've shared there.  I think it's the perfect addition to her gorgeous dining room! She also included a great tutorial for an easy way to transfer the custom graphics.

Pam got very creative (as usual!) and made some DIY artwork for some gallery wall frames...with fabric!  She proves once again that great design doesn't need to be complicated or expensive!
