Time for the next installment of my cupboard door stash makeover. Yahoo!! If you have no clue what I’m talking about, head HERE to begin the fun. I was ready to give away that thrifted metal art, but then I had a light-bulb moment (don’t you just love those?). This pile below is about to get transformed into farmhouse wall decor.

The light-bulb moment I mentioned was that I realized I had two square cupboard doors in my stash that would work perfectly. My vision was to
The holiday season is definitely fun for letting our creative side run wild. I love to get my six kids involved in gift making and creating. They all agreed they wanted to inspire you and your kids to get your craft on too. Today, we are going to to show you how you can create an upcycled Christmas cupboard door project for any age. Join me and my gang for a cupboard adventure!
What you see above is a selection of cupboard doors that my kids picked out from my stash below. Did you read the story about how I acquired that pile o’ goodness? If not, you can get up to speed HERE.
As soon as we got that wonderful gift of doors
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
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…
I don’t know about you, but one of the cutest things that is available to dress a baby are bib overalls. Am I right? Little cuties crawling around or toddling in these just deserve a squeeze. I no longer have littles that require these, so when an idea struck I had to head to the thrift store to locate a pair. My vision entailed upcycling a pair of baby bibs into a fun DIY doorstop. Hang with me now.
The last Tuesday of each month I present my Reduce, Reuse, REFASHION series with the intent to inspire you. The idea is to take something to recreate your
If you are new to my blog in the last few weeks, you may have missed the fact that a friend of mine gave me a giant plastic tote of wooden pieces to play with. My kinda fun! It all began with a letter holder I upcycled in this post and then my recipe box. Today, these two pieces are about to become my upcycled washboard & silverware box cupboard. Try saying that 5 times fast. tee hee!
At a quick glance, the vintage washboard is in excellent shape and would be just fine left as-is. However, just hanging it on the wall (how I have mine in my own home) is fine, but I thought
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
It was almost exactly 3 years ago that I decided to do something drastic. My husband and I took on the exterior of our home in DIY form as we are known to do. He tackled the stone veneer on the front, while I took care of painting the entire house top to bottom (yep, all by my lonesome self). I decided to take our builder grade garage door to a new level and give it a faux wood look. Many have asked, “How has it held up?” So today I’m going to show you the 3 year anniversary reveal, plus give you a few tips on how to refresh old wood with my latest treasure.
If you haven’t read about our garage door makeover, you really should head HERE to not only see it in full, but I also share the steps of how I achieved it so you can too. Here it is in summation:
Boring before, but oh-so-good after, isn’t it?
Well, I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. Here it is 3 years to the day since I first worked on my garage door
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
