Steal this Idea: Outdoor Mirrors

Its Friday (yippee!) - time for another Steal this Idea* feature - a tiny show of appreciation for a well executed tutorial.



Today's installment comes from Brambleberry Cottage who shares such a simple smart idea, it's close to genius.  This might be the best idea I've seen for reusing old windows and adding visual interest to an outdoor space at the same time.

By adding mirrors to old windows and pointing them toward something pretty, she added a feeling of space and light to her backyard.  If I ever have a bigger backyard with real trees, I'll be stealing this idea big time. She hung these on a barn but they would be really fabulous on a fence in an urban backyard as well.

postscript: *When I say steal, I really mean borrow nicely and give proper credit!


**If you have an idea/tutorial you would like me to consider for a feature, email me. I'd love to see!

Must Have: Kraft Paper 3 Ways

As part of the Lowes Style Saturday event, I thought it would be the perfect time to share one of my absolute favorite items sold there - kraft paper.

Cheap and endlessly useful, its the kind of thing you can never have enough. There are just so many ways to use it in crafting, entertaining, organizing and decor but here are 3 of my favorites.

A 12 inch roll + a wooden dowel + a few pieces of hardware make the ultimate door mounted kraft paper roll that is perfect for everything from grocery lists to love notes.  Total cost is less than $5 bucks and it takes only a few minutes to install.

A larger roll can be drawn on directly to let your guests know just what they are being served AND makes clean up a breeze. Or use that very same paper to make giant flower wreath for a few cents. Once again, both of these projects are super quick ways to inject a little extra style in your home for almost no cost.

Any other kraft paper hoarders out there?  What is your favorite way to use it?
