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!

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?

DIY Storage from Repurposed Cupboard Doors

Mama on a mission here! I am a driven person, if you haven’t figured that out yet. mwahaha…and my workshop is getting an overhaul like noneother. Destashing the stash feels oh so good (and makes room for new, of course. tsk). I have had a small set of cupboard doors left over from from this pile of kitchen remodel goodness since forever and they finally are getting new life today. Time for some DIY storage!

Now, aside from the cupboard doors, you see a pair of bin pulls I yanked off a cheapie chest of drawers, and a pair of sofa legs from a curbside haul. So, I bet you’re now like…weird. hahaha… Read more

Repurposed Bookcase Headboard Bench

It’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday! This is a fun time where my blogger friends and I get together to show you how we take some #trashure and turn it into something new. The subject of my post today is this twin headboard we bought as a part of a set. The dresser set was done in this post, and now it’s the headboard’s turn for some lovin’. Because of the design of this piece, I decided to turn it into a repurposed bookcase headboard bench complete with storage. Let me show ya what I did. PLUS, I have a giveaway for you!

Vintage Bookcase Headboard Before Makeover by Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

At first, those built-in cubbies totally reminded me of nesting boxes or “bins” for chicken when flipped on its backside. I kept thinking I would be creating something along those lines, but the last few projects I did were wall related and I wanted to change it up. Something that struck me was that the board spanning the front 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

Mug Rack with Shelf from Repurposed Pallet

Do you ever have projects that have to wait until you have time? I bet yours don’t take you nearly 3 years…at least I hope not! Back when I started blogging over 3 year ago, one of my first posts ever was how to create barn wood style shutters from pallets. It was a hit! Then, I shared my pallet clock, plate rack, and centerpiece trough. When I finished those pallet projects I had a piece of pallet left over that I didn’t get to. Well, today it becomes a repurposed mug rack. Trust me on this one, k?

It doesn’t look like much at first glance, but I saw its potential. And I couldn’t wait to finally get to it. Even my husband gave me the look, “What are you Read more

Farmhouse Cupboard Makeover ~ Add a Wall Cleat

Sometimes while shopping, do you ever see something and say, “I have to have it.” You may not need it, but you know it shouldn’t be left behind because it has potential. If you know me then you know this is my life story. ahem. Earlier this week in our Trash to Treasure Tuesday, I said I would be tackling this thrift store cupboard and today’s the day. I’d like to show you what I saw when I spied it in the store, and watch how it becomes a farmhouse cupboard.

At first glance I thought it was a basic wall cupboard, but upon closer inspection, I found that it had once been some sort of add-on to other cabinets. It has beads in the shelves for displaying plates, even on top.

Repurposed Bread Box Charging Station

The truth needs to be told that not every thing in life is not always cookie-cutter easy. When I first started today’s project, I was mentally boasting how easy this would be and I was really looking forward to it. ahem. No such thing actually happened. With much to learn from this, I am proud to say that I now have the repurposed bread box charging station I was after from this garage sale find.

Bread Box Before Repurposed Makeover by Prodigal Pieces | www.prodigalpieces.com

Let me explain…At first glance you see a shabby looking wooden box (and not the shabby chic kind, right?).  But… oh does this thing have a wicked side. I had flash backs of a certain promise I made to myself while doing this chest of drawers to never buy a previously painted item again. With much head-slapping and asking “Why??”, I finished my project.
