Repurposed Changing Table Potting Bench

One thing I can’t resist is a good trashure find (ya know, one man’s trash is another woman’s treasure?). City clean-up was held recently and I mentioned how I was a good girl until I saw this haul. The next day was Sunday and on the way to church I spied something else face down on the ground. I was surprised no one wanted it, but I drove on to get to church. On my way home, however, I had no problem getting out in my good clothes and shoving it in my car. Meet my new project – a repurposed changing table.

Since I was really puzzled why it hadn’t been picked up yet, I gave it a good look before I decided to claim it. All I saw was missing Read more

Repurposed Cabinet Door Crate

Do you do a spring cleaning each year? For me, it seems like each month is spring with my family of 8 because I’m forever purging and cleaning. ha! Not complaining, just the truth. If I’m cleaning I know I have loved ones around me. Take for instance my workshop, full of goodies ready to become something new. These doors came off of a buffet that my son completed HERE (you seriously have to see it!). We promised to show you this repurposed cabinet door project. Oh, and we have a WINNER for the Zibra prize package!

Cupboard Doors Before Repurposing | Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

Because these doors had cracks where the hinges were, they became unusable as they were originally intended. However, are they trash? NO WAY. Trashure I say! I recently gave my own kitchen cupboard doors new life by turning them into Read more

Apothecary Cabinet Makeover ~ A Trashure Story

I love my husband, JC, with all my heart and then some. He is my best friend and confidant, but he is also my polar opposite in many ways. Like they say, opposites attract, right? He is the reason that this forlorn piece of furniture is my subject for today’s Furniture Fixer Upper fun. Thankfully, I can laugh and have a go at making this into an apothecary cabinet. Stay with me, I’ll explain below. Oh, and be sure to read through to see the furniture makeover goodness from my friends too.

Filing Cabinet Before Makeover by Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

JC had one job to do. Mind you he works full-time, is the one who ships everything for me from my shop, furniture and all, and is our main dude in our remodeling adventures. So, I guess he deserves a little slack, but…this happens A LOT.  I asked him to stop by and pick up this “filing cabinet” (as the lady described), but only bring it home if it was solid wood and would hold my files. ahem…does it look like solid wood to you?

Kitchen Island Cart from Repurposed Materials

Do you ever feel the need to just purge and start fresh? That’s my life story. hahaha… I seem to be ever battling the need to destash my stash. People mean well when they give me stuff and I usually have a soft heart and take it. Then what…I store it forever and work like a mule trying to stay afloat. I’m not complaining, but have decided that this entire month is dedicated to tackling my workshop. No more furniture coming in (unless custom requested), no more anything until it is done. First up, I’m taking these louver doors and turning them into a repurposed kitchen island cart. Woot!

Old Louver Doors Before Makeover by Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

Notice the loot surrounding them. See what I mean? An awesome local friend gave these to me along with a chest of drawers (see the makeover HERE) and a dresser (thank you, Becky!). I have a thing for shutters and knew I could find some use for them. But…it’s already been over a year and they need Read more

Antique Clamp Chair Made with Barn Wood

Sometimes it can be hard to let go of things. Especially things that have sentimental value. For me it was this 12′ wooden ladder that my dad had loaned us when we bought our first home. I remember as a child using it in my parent’s home to decorate our 20’+ Christmas trees in our living room while using a broom to string lights. Or dangling from it  to play with my siblings. Problem is, when my husband and I got possession of it, it fell in disrepair. ugh. It had to be outside for various reasons and it rotted away. Today it becomes something more. Let me show you how I made an antique clamp chair using this ladder for parts.

I suppose most people would just pitch or burn this thing, but I couldn’t do it. Too many memories and I felt as though I failed my dad. I dragged it up to he front of my house and used my jig saw to cut it into salvageable pieces late last summer. The promise to myself was to make use of this bit by bit and create some new memories.

Enter in this pair of antique clamps that I found at a local flea market. Read more

Entry Storage & Organization DIY Building Plans

Are you always look for extra ways to store things? It seems as though there is always room for improvement in the area of storage in the average home. I like to try to make better use of what I already have too. It can even be as simple as finding new purpose for a spot in our home. When I spied this message center at the thrift store I had no idea that it would lead me to create entry storage.

It was kinda like if you give a mouse a cookie story (much like my patio makeover), except this is the thrifted message center sort of ballooning project. The idea was to show you how to get organized, but then it grew and I’m so happy it did because here is what I did with it… Read more

Sewing Table with Vintage Chic Vibe

Today’s post is kinda funny because it has a story behind it. First, it all started with this table that my parents gave me. I invite you to come read this post on my Facebook page and be sure to read the comments. I’ll fill you in as we go, but in the meantime, I’d like to show you how I turned it into a vintage chic sewing table.

Side Table Before Vintage Chic Makeover by Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

We have always had modge-podge furniture because I get it second-hand, either by thrifting or handed down. Our last installment of furniture was leather and I was happy to have it, but it didn’t have a vintage feel to it. I thought if I could sell what we had to pay for a set more to my liking, I would have a go at it.

My heart was set on a soft brown leather set with nailhead trim to go with what I wanted Read more
