Fun Uses for a Little Bit of Everything...

Over the years, between fun Pinterest projects and just pure inspiration, I've been able to make some fun updates throughout the house. Some of these projects may not have turned out quite as I'd seen them online and some of them were given their own twist and made into their own. Either way, I always enjoy doing something new to the house and I thought I'd share it with each of you.

I'm only listing a few today, in hopes that I'll get more up here soon as well! So here's some of my favorite projects, which will probably show my obsession with free (or close to free) items.

Obsession #1: OLD WINDOWS

 I've had some fun around the house with old windows, from the photos you see above to the use in my youngest son's Cowboy Themed Bedroom (which I blogged about here). The bottom photo was one of my favorites. We had poles separating the small opening from our kitchen to our dining room. My handy-man husband helped me to cut them out and then hang the window for a more primitive look. The kids enjoy decorating the window for the different holidays throughout the year with window clings.

Obsession #2: OLD LADDERS

There are so many things you can do with an old ladder...my only concern is I wonder how weird it will look if I get more than 20 around the house, because my obsessions seems like it's beginning to spiral out of control. It all began with the ladder in the first photo where we hung it from the ceiling over our fireplace with lights draped in and out. After that I decided that just one wasn't enough and have since added the one to the hallway (where I'll be adding more pictures to the inside). I've got another one waiting in the garage for my next project and still find myself scoping for an old ladder every chance I get.
