Some Upcycling around the Blogosphere!

Here are just a few of the awesome upcycles in blogland these days:

Entryway Table Makeover -
Shelley at The House of Smiths has some of the most inspiring and best home design I've seen!  Cozy AND dog AND kid friendly!!  Plus, she doesn't spend a fortune to get her house that way! 
Check out Shelley's post about upcycling and the pieces she's given a new life HERE!

While Kate at Centsational Girl has a design sense that surpasses mine in the "mature and sophisticated" department, she proves that even sophistication can be second hand.  Check out Kate's post about her $10 thrift store find HERE!
Holly at In The Fun Lane is a fellow Albertan and one of my biggest inspirations.  Because of her blog, I tried a white couch.  (That couch now has a gray cover...Holly can pull off white...Lindsey can NOT!)  She used to have a furniture restore company but now restores houses instead!  Her whole blog is a beautiful example of upcycling, HERE is a prime example! 

And of course, I want to add some of the awesome upcycling companies in Alberta - all of these ladies are in Central Alberta!  Who knew we had such talent!?
Heidi at the Rustic Barnyard, stationed out of Mirror, AB has some pretty amazing stuff!  She's figured out the secret of Chalk Paint and even holds classes to teach you how to use it (hmm...maybe I should take this course someday?!)
Laurie at Walnut Grove Interiors lives in the same town as I do and I adore what she does!  Check out her website and see what she has for sale - She's got a knack for the beautiful and unique!

Under The Oak Tree Furnishings
 New to the business, Ashley and her Mom from Under The Oak Tree Furnishings also live in Sylvan Lake and just relocated from Ontario!  They have a fantastic eye  and are unpredictable in their design, which makes for some seriously beautiful stuff! 


A lot of upcyclers haven't started up a blog or a website yet, but definitely have made their presence of social media!  Check out a couple of them on facebook!
