Swapping Roundup

After last week's DIY thrift shopping extravaganza, #swapitlikeitshot, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite projects from the other participants. Corinna from A Designer at Home successfully channeled Anthropologie with her wood beaded pendant light.  The wood beads themselves are my favorite part!

Sometimes a simple spray paint transformation can make a world of a difference.  I loved the wood antelope that Alice from Thoughts from Alice received, but her gold/copper ombre treatment gave it such a wow factor!

I admit, I wasn't a basket fan growing up.  They seemed so cutesy country (maybe it was the blue bows all over them at the time...), but I'm a total convert as I realize their usefulness is never ending.  Melissa from Polished Habitat succeeded at giving a basic basket a modern punch.  Wouldn't this be the cutest with a fiddle leaf fig tree peeking out the top?  (and I heart her background!!)

And there's a reason that Charlotte at Ciburbanity is the queen bee organizer of this swap- she always pulls out some awesome projects and naturally didn't disappoint this time around!  Somehow she saw a kitschy candle holder and envisioned on trend woven wall art.  Kudos!

I love being a part of this fun event, connecting with the other bloggers and seeing how they can re-envision the weird, wacky, and sometimes extraordinarily mundane objects into something completely unexpected!
