House Revivals is the the amazing blog of Amanda, a mom of 3 and interior design guru.  She takes cast-off items, transforms them into amazing things and shows how a real person, with a real budget and busy schedule, can make them too.  She's got some incredible tutorials like a woven star from book pages, faux tin lettering and tips for teaching the rest of us how to do a little designing.  Last week shared linked up this mirror tutorial made from recycled magazines.  That's right - all that gold is magazine!  How cool is that?!?!
