Hello and a happy party weekend to you!

Call me late in the game, however even with the cooler weather ahead, I got a brainstorm that I just HAD to implement!

Pallet wood sofa turned lounger for an outdoor patio by Funky Junk Interiors

After glancing at a friend’s summer patio, I knew I wanted a lounger… or 2. But after pricing the super comfy ones, I decided to bypass the retail purchase and shuffle around what I had. Then BOOM, I was done! Without spending a dime…

This post also shares two easy DIY tutorials with two new paint methods showcased in super short videos. If you stencil, you’ll get something out of both!

.

In other news, I got the nudge to start writing about my travels again after someone came forward and was so impressed with all my sole travels of late… that I haven’t blogged about. Oops.

I have so many brave-girl stories to share and with hopefully more to follow, so I drafted 2 this week alone! Hope you’re in the mood for some inspiration abroad because it’s on its way soon! And one post is so incredibly overloaded gorgeous I want to run right back there for fall yet again… more soon!

Ok, let’s get back to you! I am in LOVE with these fabulous highlights from last week’s party so here they are…

Did you know….

This just has to be the cutest memo board that ever lived! Pumpkin-style of course! I love how it can double as a memo board or picture frame. What would you use it for?

These Halloween bottles remind me of Lite Brite, but only much larger! But I can’t say this enough… you’ve got to click through to this post to see how this was done. So SO genius!

Sometimes repainting an antique or crates can be iffy. But I can attest, this crate revamp complete with crate stamps looks authentic… I have a few duplicates in my own stash! But add the pin legs and it’s now officially functional furniture! I adore this piece so much. Click through to see the before.

  1. awwww, thank you so much for featuring my crazy ping pong paddle pumpkins / cacti, Miss Donna! i just have to laugh at how the most off-the-wall things pop into my brain in the middle of the night (the muses, they are partyin’ it up!!) and when a project works, ya’ just want to share it!

    it was fun to be able to participate here in your linkup again – i am so honored being featured, but mostly touched by your sweet words. i’m not giving up retirement – but i have a few more ideas up my sleeve and in process, so it’s looking like there will, indeed, be a few new posts coming up 😉 maybe one next week! ~ deb

  2. Enjoying the unique and clever repurposed Fall ideas featured and shared this week. Always leave the party inspired. Thanks for hosting and have a great week!
