Do you find stress relief in work? I’m one of those the will clean my house lickety-split when I am one hot mama. hahaha… That’s kinda how I feel about furniture and my creative projects too.

Vintage Dresser Before Updating | Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

You might be wondering what’s wrong, well we’ve found a pest in the wood we are using for our kitchen countertops. No big deal, just treat and move on, but that set us back 3 weeks finding the source, the solution, and waiting on it to arrive. Then our vehicle had issues and when they were supposed to be fixed the dude who repaired it caused more damage. We even had Read more

Assortments of Thrift Store Finds | Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

When I go thrifting, I’m always on the lookout for these outdated wooden pieces because they offer much potential. Since I am not a box store junkie for my home decor, I like to make it my own by personal touches and updates, or even finding a new purpose for it which, I believe, causes intrigue in my decor.

First, let’s start with that little wood napkin caddy. Isn’t it cute? It is Read more

DIY: Reclaimed Wood Fall Harvest Sign

Fall is just around the corner and it’s one of my favorite seasons. For me, living in farm country, it means harvest time! All the wonders of creation performing their grand finale and we get to reap the benefit of such splendor. There’s nothing like a cup of hot cider on a cool fall evening, a hearty pile of pumpkins, or a long hayride with our loved ones. That’s what I envisioned when deciding what to create for this month’s Power Tool Challenge. (there’s all sorts of DIY goodies for you at the bottom of this post!) Here is my treat to you, a fall harvest sign.

Antique Empire Chest Refreshed

It never seems to fail that when I enter a thrift store searching for item A, I come out with items B, C, D E, F….you get the idea. So, is the solution to just not look for item A? Nah. Too much fun to run through the alphabet. hee hee. Does that happen to you? I went in looking for a chair and this is what I came out with, amongst other items. Can you blame me? I had a 35% off coupon burning a hole in my pocket. eep! Yes, this antique empire chest was meant to be mine.

However, knowing my past experiences with chests like this, I did look inside and around before purchasing. Why? Because a deal isn’t always a deal when it ends up to be a hot mess and takes more work than it’s worth. Here’s my summation Read more
