Vintage Side Table Before | prodigalpieces.com

This cutie-patootie table came home with me and it sat for a bit because I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. I had many ideas, but I couldn’t pick one that jumped out at me.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it sure is a blessing when people get you. My parents are always telling me they saw something they thought I would like to work on. They’ve blessed the kids and I a million times over with gift of things they found. My dad own several rental properties and one of the not-so-fun duties is cleaning up after someone who has torn apart his hard work.

Here is the aftermath of one of those instances. Read more

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!
