    I think these doilies have to be my favorite "not your gannie's" make over. I love them! I like having something on the table under the vase etc but I am NOT a lace kinda gal. these are so cool and modern. I love the flower on the retro table, that is SO me!

    Buy some old, used quilts at yard sales…cut them up for table runners and coasters! You can dress up your home like a country cottage for the holidays w/white and red quilts, or festive July red/white/blue decor! Go crazy! : )

    …i covered a discarded Formica table with old yardsticks in a wood floor pattern, including around the edges. It looks great. Vintage and new at the same time!

    The best makeover I've seen recently are the 'designer' catboxes. Saw someone take an old fish tank stand and cut a door on the side. Then the shelves held the littler box on the inside. The rest of it had storage for cat things. But from the outside, it looked like a nice serving table. They even installed a motion sensor light and lined for odor resistance! Also found an ikea hacker site that did the same with ikea furniture! Great way to hide the cat box (and keep away from the dog!).. I'm currently searching for the perfect cabinets to make my own!!

    My best "this ain't your granny's" product makeover; I have to say that placing dessert on a doily is a great presentation.
