took an old window and painted the back using paint and my star stencil. I used both house paint and craft paint that I had on hand. I added a touch of brown to my white because I wanted a more distressed look on my old window. I started with the white, wait for it all to dry then paint blue over the white stars in one thick stroke. Do another coat when it drys if desired. Then paint the red stripes by aurelia

Basement before and after.  I had a really ugly cement floor, but because my basement gets water sometimes (minor), I didn't want carpet.  I used cement paint (brown), along with paint chips (natural tones) from Behr.  Super easy and looks great!  Best result for paint chips is to throw in the air like confetti.  And the kids had fun helping with that!  The walls are covered with twin bed sheets and the bottom border is old folding closet doors.  Total makeover was less than 100 dollars! by lenora

Pallet couch -  We wanted a comfy couch area for under our, almost 13 yr old, daughters loft bed. Went pallet shopping..near some dumpsters of course. Used 1  1/2 pallets. Hubby bolted and braced them together, cut and created some little legs for the bottom of it too. I sanded and painted it all black. Purchased a twin mattress and topped it with a fitted sheet. Made a few pillows ( bought a couple at IKEA) and WA-LAA....perfect hang out area, or for any overnight guests. by Joao.Almeida.d.Eca

Blue glass & Corks: I had one of my favorite blue glass mugs break! :( had them for over a decade. I usually always sip spiced mulled wine from them! ;) when it broke last night, I immediately clapped my hands w/ repurpose ideas! My favorite combo, Blue glass & my vast collected corks! I have a lovely PL glass item I always change the contents to. So, I smashed my blue glass up in a zip lock bag, added it, corks & white lED lights! Placed it in my China/wine dinning room over the cigar box! ~Moe by josefa

Thanks! I painted the inside of the ornament with Folkart acrylic paint. I just poured the paint in and swirled the paint around the ornament until it was coated and then put it upside on a solo cup to drain out excess paint. I've tried several brands of paint including Applebarn but Folkart works the best for this project to me. The others are too thin and don't stick as well when I turn it upside down to drain.
