Tail-End of September

It’s time for another edition of Tail-Ends, where I give those who might have missed them the first time a second chance at the best of the best of the previous month’s posts and projects. Four top projects for four Chester paws!

And if that’s not enough Pies & Puggles for you, keep in mind that you can also follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram!

Autumn Baking: Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts with Maple Glaze

Fall is my favorite baking season! I’ve done a lot of baking with caramel, maple, pumpkin and bourbon since September started and I’ve got an apple recipe coming up next week!

Operation Upcycle: Chalkboard Peace Globe

September marked the start of an occasional series here at Pies & Puggles: Operation Upcycle. I have a few things in my Etsy store that have been sitting around for a while so I thought I would try sprucing them up a bit and try out some new products and techniques in the process. This project used spray chalkboard paint and it worked great!

Flip flopping: living room and dining room makeover

I put together this animated gif (my first attempt at this trend) for the post I did on the new gallery wall I put together when I switched our living room and dining room. Thanks to the government shutdown and uncertainly over the regularity of paychecks for the coming few weeks, I haven’t wanted to pay to have the chandelier moved, but we’ll hopefully get that accomplished in late October.

Upcycled Vintage Wooden Bowls

Another Operation Upcycle project, I spiffed up these old teak bowls with some new paint. I tried out a Krylon paint pen for the first time and was impressed by it. I’ll be using that again in the future I’m sure.

So that’s September wrapped up at Pies & Puggles. What did you do last month?
