  1. What a great topic idea Kim, I love it! You really have to flex those creative muscles to put this together! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. These are awesome! I was in Arhaus the other day (just looking for inspiration…WAY too costly), anyway they had a TON of end tables and coffee tables that were branches held together with some sort of strap and then a glass top. They were pretty expense also and I kept thinking to myself, I could make that for a LOT less. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Stopping by from the Linky Follower Party Hop!

  4. Aren’t you a clever little thing finding all of these Kim. They’re just so novel. I love them all. I’m looking forward to seeing what else you come up with. If you can, I’d love to see what you could do with a tropical theme, palms or daisies, as far as decorating goes.

  5. do u have any more info/how-tos for the table base? thanks.

  6. I love your blog idea! Great job! How about an idea for using yogurt cups? It seems such a waste to just put them in the recycle bin, BUT I don’t wanna be a hoarder and start keeping them unless I have a clear idea in mind. Thanks!

    • Oh Wendy…hoarding shmording! Start saving those cups, I put yogurt cups on my list and it will be showing up on Main Ingredient Monday in a few weeks.

  7. Branches and sticks are my BFF! I have branches all over my house. This is a fun and fabulous roundup.

  8. Great ideas! I love the wall divider.Can’t wait to see your next inspiration. I remember saving pudding cups when my kids were young and we made angels.

  9. I just found your website, and this is the first place my pinterest pin sent me… I LOVE LOVE LOVE the main ingredient Monday! That is so fun! I will totally be coming back for more 😀 Thanks for sharing your ideas!
