i really enjoy when people incorporate sayings, poetry, and quotations from literature and film into their homes. i’ve had a special poetry project i’ve wanted to work on framing for a while (this poem, handwritten by someone i love), so when i saw this makeover involving poetry i was instantly intrigued. liz from sticks and bricks made over a pine coffee table by hammering (!) in the letters of mary oliver’s poem, “a summer day“. liz says it took forever to hammer in, but was well worth it in the end. i can only imagine how nice that is to look down every day and see words that you love. great work, liz!

this small spice rack makeover comes from solanah at vixen vintage. i love the way she used paint to completely change the look of this rack. the hand-painted sign really transforms the rack from a sort of country-cozy-traditional look to something lighter and more feminine to match solanah’s kitchen. thanks for sharing, solanah!
