You don't have to take out a second mortgage to spruce things up at home. As Sherry and John Petersik—the bloggers and authors behind Young House Love—show, a few well-placed updates can make every corner feel like your new favorite place to be. (Watch their "Super Soul Sunday" debut tomorrow at 11 a.m. ET/PT.) Get started with the idea below and keep reading for more!
A New Use for Your Dinner Napkins in the Dining Room
Those fancy ikat dinner napkins you love but never actually use—or the pillowcases that live in the closet—can get a second life covering your dining room chairs. "Fabric is fabric," says Sherry Petersik, who blogs about her home renovations and decorating ideas with her husband, John, on YoungHouseLove.com. "People get intimidated by the thought of recovering chairs, but it's as easy as unscrewing the seat, taking off the existing fabric, stapling on the new one and screwing the seat back on."

SUPER SOULERS! Are you ready to build your spiritual muscles?
That's my primary goal, spiritual muscularity that equips me to handle whatever life brings, and experience the world with an open heart. "Super Soul Sunday" is a big part of that mission.
I’m so excited to launch our new season this SUNDAY! There are so many great tweet, tweet, Aha’s and bing, bing moments. "Super Soul Sunday" is the reason I set out to build OWN in the first place: To be able to gather a global community of like-minded seekers. I’m so grateful that you all gather with me every Sunday to have conversations that matter. It feels like our hearts are joined together each week... I just LOVE that we get to share our soul expanding thoughts through social media.
I read every one of your comments every week and revel in the positive vibrations you all share. This is one of my favorites:
“For me, there is nothing else like this show on television. This show is non-fiction, and it speaks to me when nothing else can. It relates to me when nothing else can. It teaches me things that I couldn't learn from any other programs. But more than anything, it makes me feel the way I want to feel, the way I wish to feel & the way I long to feel. At times, I wish we had Super Soul Network but I know society just isn't there yet! So for now, I'll look forward to my soul being enlightened & enriched every Sunday!” -Mari Cahan
Mari, I couldn't agree with you more. I, too, wish we had a Super Soul Network, but for now I delight in every Sunday.
This season I'm hoping to expand our audience with your friends and family.
Everything in life is better when you share it. This I know for sure. I'm asking you to invite a friend or two or three to join you for our SSS gathering on Sunday mornings.
Remember we love you watching on OWN, but you can live stream all the new season’s shows from anywhere in the world on Facebook.com or Oprah.com at 11 a.m. Eastern and Pacific.
Globally, let's join our minds and hearts in creating higher vibrations across the planet.
It is my personal goal that every episode brings you a word, or quote, a spark of inspiration, a piece of Light that illuminates the way you see yourself and what is possible for the greater vision of your Life.
This Sunday, Mariel Hemingway and Bobby Williams break down the 86,400 moments in a day and show us how to find the sacred adventure in our daily lives and learn ways to make each moment count. I appreciated their reminder of how to establish balance, get back to basics, get into nature, and focus on what REALLY matters.
Then stay tuned if you can for Help Desk -- two brand-new back-to-back specials with Deepak Chopra and Reverend Ed Bacon. The idea is a great one: Set up a desk in a busy, public place, and let everyday people ask their big questions to a prominent spiritual thinker. Deepak’s smack dab in the middle of the hustle and bustle of New York City, and Rev. Ed’s on the busy boardwalk on Venice Beach. Lots of great questions... and lots of great answers. Talk about soul food!
The tweet is ON!
See you Sunday,

In 2007, John and Sherry Petersik started renovating their first home in Richmond, Virgina, and began blogging about their home improvement journey on a website they called "Young House Love". Their following began to grow—and now millions check in to see what's new at the Petersik house. This Sunday, tune in and get to know the young family who have found their greatest adventures in their own backyard. (Watch them on the "Super Soul Sunday" season premiere this Sunday at 11 a.m. ET/PT on OWN and online.)

For generations, Mariel Hemingway's famous family has been plagued by a legacy of addiction, mental illness and suicide. This Sunday, she sits down with Oprah to discuss the weight of her family's name and her own journey to choose a different path—one that led her to finding a place of peace in nature and through wholehearted living. (Watch on OWN or join our worldwide simulcast Sunday at 11 a.m. ET/PT.)
In this sneak peek, Mariel discusses her family's past and how she embraced her present in the name of a brighter future:
After her older sister Margaux intentionally overdosed in 1996, Mariel set off on her own spiritual journey to break the so-called "Hemingway curse" for herself and her two daughters. Watch as Mariel opens up why she feared the torch would be passed to her:
Mariel also documented her journey in a film called Running from Crazy (in theaters November 1). "Mental illness is overwhelmingly misunderstood and creates fear for so many. I'm hoping Running from Crazy gives people permission to share their stories and know that they are not alone. Perhaps by sharing my life with others they will feel supported in speaking out and getting help." Watch a trailer here:
