Steal this Idea*:

Yes, its Friday - so I owe you another Steal this Idea* feature. But its just been a crazy week and I haven't had a chance to properly comb the web for an impressive tutorial. (The dog ate my homework!) So instead I'm going to do some shameless self promotion and remind you of the tutorials I've shared right here over the years.

One of the most popular is this kitty cat bed. And yes, he still uses it.
Cat Bed Step O Finished2

One of the easiest (and cheapest) is old dictionary art.

Another easy and cheap art project are this passport stamp set.

Further proof that we are crazy cat people pretending to be normal is this family portrait pillow.

I've done a few others but I think I'll stop droning on here. Looking at some of these, it reminds me I want to do another tutorial in the near future - now if I can just narrow down what I want to show you. (So many ideas, so little time!)

*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!

  15. Hi! I just founding your blog after madly scouring the internet for ideas and inspiration. This post is just the tip of the iceberg, really. There's a ton of great stuff here. I can't believe the extent of your house overhaul and it opens my eyes to what's possible. It's an amazing, amazing transformation. I'm starting to work on my newly purchased house, and I will refer back here often.

  20. I hear of your blog all over the blogosphere, but decided to hop over here and see what all of the fuss is about today when John & Sherry mentioned meeting you at the Nate Berkus show. I'm so glad I stopped by!! You ideas are absolutely fantastic!! Love the dictionary chair art. Such a simple idea, but with tremendous impact!! I'm definitely going to give that a try.

    And your cat bed is adorable. I love that you are "crazy cat people"! My two cats (and my big dog) are a bit spoiled as well. I made them this cat bed/dog and cat feeding station from a discarded secretary desk that my neighbor was throwing out.

    I look forward to browsing your blog more, and looking at all of your wonderful ideas!!
