There is nothing better than getting together with a few friends to do what you love, right? Today is Furniture Fixer Uppers day and my blogging friends and I have some fun for you. This vintage Lane cedar chest is about to be given the help it needs along with some lovin’ too. Stick around to see my friend’s projects and enter to win the giveaway as well. Let’s get our DIY on!
One of my furniture addictions are blanket chests, also known as hope chests. The offer style and function since they serve as seats and storage. Who could ask for more? I was gifted one as a graduation/birthday gift and still fill it with my treasures. The ones that are cedar lined like this one make it even more
You’ve been hunting and searching for some kinda antique item that is ever alluding you. My solution? Make one of your own. haha. Yes, it won’t exactly be the same and I’m stubborn enough to hunt one down in most instances. However, you can create the same effect, save money & time, plus gain some DIY skillz. This little apothecary cubby is a like-new item from a big box store. But…wait until you see what it can look like by creating a story.
I actually found this at the thrift store, and if you know me I’m a sucker for all things drawers – especially small, cute ones, like these. tee hee. If you’ve ever priced an item like this at a flea market or antique store, you know they are
Do you like to take on challenges that get you thinking outside your norm? I do!! That’s half the fun of being a DIY blogger or just an everyday mom. I mean, don’t all mom’s step outside their “box” for their kids? You know it. tsk. I am super excited to share an upcycled Christmas sleigh made from these misfit items below.
You may be scratching your head at what that is up there, but there’s a backstory to it all. First, the piece of siding was found over a year ago curbside along with the underbed drawers I turned into a farmhouse workbench – one of my favorite builds (see HERE). I have more sweet
It pays to hang onto things sometimes, don’t you think? I’ve had this cutie tucked under my desk for quite some time. It has served us well for a year or so aiding my in homeschooling my children. Now, I felt time for it to become a cottage style stool with cozy fun.
Am I the only one that actually pays good hard cash for something broken? ahem. (please say yes!) When I spied this stool, I enjoyed that it was made in the likeness of a vintage stool with the threaded center. However, on closer inspection, the top fell off and
Friends don’t let friends drive by junk…am I right? Especially when the curbside #trashure is a beauty like this! My friend, Christy, saw this set out for city clean-up on her neighbor’s lawn. She knew that this vintage corner writing desk was unique and something that would catch my fancy. BINGO!
Not only is this have fantastic lines, but plenty of function too. How many of us have a wasted-space corner that this would be perfect for? I’m thankful Christy thought enough of me to
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. First, we have a laundry bin. Then, 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
‘Tis the season for holiday decor! One might not think of someone else’s trash as potential for beautifying your home, however, that just depends on your vision. Right? Take a peek below. I yanked this unlikely pair out of my neighbor’s trash across the street over a couple weeks time. Today I’m turning the tiered table on the right into an upcycled Christmas tree. (giveaway alert!)
No worries though, because I’ll get to the table on the left next time. I can’t wait for Trash to Treasure Tuesday!
Okay, so maybe it is a little crazy to gasp when you look out your window on trash day and see a table sitting on top. For me, I’m all about
Happy dance goin’ on over here as it’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday! This fun day is for you – to inspire you to give DIY a try. You’ll see my friend’s projects below. Today is all about a fantastic haul I was gifted with recently. You know I never turn down wood, right? Well, this orphaned cupboard sample crew is about to become a repurposed cupboard door jewelry cabinet. Game ON!
Before I show you what I did with these, first, let me tell you how I came upon them. A huge thanks goes to my friend Sue. She sent me a massage asking if I would like some cupboard doors. Apparently, her son does cabinetry work on the side and had some doors that were new, but had a flaw or two so they couldn’t be used. She mentioned he was going to burn them because he didn’t
“A hunting we will go, a hunting we will go, heigh-ho the junk we’ll show for all to see and know”…er something like that. tee hee! You know I love a good thrift store haul, and this little bit below is from recent #trashure run. I’m going to attempt to turn it all into an upcycled photo holder. Here’s hoping!

You may be wondering why I picked these items in the first place. First, the sign and the “blessings” word are made of metal. Metal is always fun to work with as it’s very
