Upcycled Charging Station Bread Box

If you know me by now, you know I’m a sucker for the wood section of the thrift store. Potential abounds and so do the 80’s heart cut-outs! haha! Last time, I showed you a pile of projects I was attempting to update. Today is all about that bread box. It’s about to become an upcycled charging station. Oh yeah!

To catch you up to speed, here is the pile in question. We have a laundry bin, a side table bin, and a bread bin. Notice the trend here? If you missed what I did with the side table bin, you can see the Read more

DIY Charging Station from Thrifted Box

Call me quirky, but I find it a thousand times more fun to make my own decor rather than to go out and buy it. Two reasons (1) it’s kinda like therapy (2) ain’t nobody gonna have one like it – tee hee. When I spied this little box at the thrift store, I saw the potential had to became a DIY charging station. Stay with me now.

Thrifted Wood Box Before Makeover | prodigalpieces.com

It’s nothing more than a pine box, but there is potential right there. The features that I like: the size, the drawer, and the overall design with open top. The box was missing Read more

Repurposed Bread Box Charging Station

The truth needs to be told that not every thing in lifeΒ 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?). Β 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.

Repurposed Cutting Boards ~ DIY Fun

One of the classic pieces used in farmhouse style is the wooden cutting boards, particularly antique ones. However, modern day style cutting boards still get used and wore out, but maybe aren’t quite in a good state to use in your decor. Today, I’d like to show how I gave these repurposed cutting boards a whole new lease on life. Let’s get our DIY on, shall we? {{high five}}

Worn Out Cutting Board about to get new life | prodigalpieces.com

As I mentioned earlier this week in my doll cradle post, wooden items at the thrift store or garage sales are always some of the first things I peruse. It’s a veritable potluck of potential. First, let’s start with this small one you see 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

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

Thrifty Farmhouse Decor ~ Budget Style Decorating

Who doesn’t like to have a good score at the thrift store? If you’re not raising your hand…ummm…I can honestly say that we are not kin. hee hee hee. Seriously though, take a look at what I got in this stash in one trip. A clock, a caddy, a wood thingy (I actually know what it is, do you?), and a large empty framed wall decor. I want to show you how I turned them into some thrifty farmhouse decor. Let’s get our DIY on, plus I have a WINNER to announce!

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

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

Repurposed Wall Art from 3 Thrifted Frames

It’s always good to start the day off with a trashure makeover, don’t you think? When I say trashure, I mean “a one man’s trash is another one’s treasure” kinda thing. When you have friends that know the way you tick, it’s a great way to be. So, when my friend Mandy asked me if I wanted some large empty frames, you know what I said. Bring it on! Let me show you how I created some repurposed wall art from these 3 big beauties.

Aren’t they gorgeous?! Solid wood and oh, so much potential. This was one of those projects that I had to set aside until I completed other commitments. In the meantime, my wheels were turning.

The first frame I decided to work with was the lighter oak one. I had no intention of Read more
