Project ReStyle: Week Three Presents Stephen and Shauna of Something's Hiding In Here

This next project is the handiwork of the talented couple Stephen and Shauna of Something's Hiding In Here.

candle sticks made from salvaged spindles

inspired by our new years resolution to do more entertaining, we wanted to make our own candle sticks for a cozy dinner party. to get started we rummaged our studio and found some old architectural spindles.
we hand cut them to length with a small japanese pull saw. then, drilled a hole into the top with a forstner bit to fit a small taper candle. that's it - so simple!
~Stephen and Shauna

I love the way they've not only given new life to old architectural pieces but styled them so well. They are truly a talented pair and always thinking up brilliant ideas. Thank you, Stephen and Shauna, for joining in on Project ReStyle! I'm off to look for a Forstner bit.

Here are a few of my favorite wardrobe ReStyles from the Flickr group.


It's been fantastic seeing how many members have joined up in the Project ReStyle Flickr Group! We're close to 1,000 people already! If you love turning something old into something new we'd love to see your projects. Ya'll are getting fancy over there!

xoxo,
Rachel

Love the dress redo's.

Rachel, this is unrelated to ReStyle, but have you seen the new show "Cash & Cari" on HGTV? Its all about estate sales and finding past treasures, they showcase a lot of neat stuff. The first episode was all mid-century finds, I loved it!

These candlesticks are AMAZING. And the perfect idea for a spot in my house--I was growing tired of thrifting endlessly and not coming up with the look I wanted. I'll just make it myself!

These transformations are amazing, and what a great idea for the recession. I especially love the velvet bird's white dress restyle.

Irrelevant but today I saw you in my sleep. Funny dream! You were so beautiful and kind. Elsie was with you but somewhere around. It was something like a craft fair. Could it be that I'm dying to meet you both in person? :-)
