Two Great Blogs

I ran across Ikeahacker today, full of many wonderful ideas for repurposing Ikea furniture. In the spirit of all things thrifty, I’m going to direct some of that inspiration toward redoing the “disposable” furniture we already have or can find for free.

The other site I’m currently crushing on is Craftynest, the DIY home decor site of former Sunset designer, Monica Ewing, in which all her projects are “green and/or affordable.” Such great ideas! And more importantly, such great follow-through! That woman has managed to get a lot done.

I always feel guilty buying new things to solve some household problem when we already have so much stuff. And I particularly feel guilty buying cheap things that I know won’t last long or are so unattractive that I won’t want them around for long. It’s cool to see so many clever, creative people use their talents to rescue stuff headed toward the landfill and repurpose it for a longer and more attractive second (or third!) life.
