I Was Inspired By...

I am starting a new Friday feature (at least I think I am--we will give it a trial run) where I feature something I have made that was inspired by one of your fabulous blogs!
This week I was inspired by the ever creative Drab To Fab girls.  They truly live up to their name--turning some of the most hideous objects into fabulous pieces.
Look at the maaahvelous chair redo:
and this one:
And this beauty was once a metal filing cabinet covered in stickers.
I was inspired by these decoupaged books that they embellished with junk.  Their version:
And mine:
repurposed books

Thanks girls for the great idea--I look forward to your posts and future inspiring creations!  Who will inspire me next...
Keep on linking up over the weekend (see post below)--lots of fun ideas and inspiration there!

  5. The books look great. Scuse me for being nosy, but are these books for looks ? Or are they covers of book s that you like?
    Curiouse mines etc.
