I am so excited to write this post today because I’m not only getting to introduce you to a group of fabulous ladies, but also share a project that is fun to create. My blogger friends and I are officially launching our Reduce, Reuse, REFASHION fun today. Our goal is to inspire you to whip out that dusty sewing machine, needle and thread, or just plain enjoy watching us create too (for those not sewing minded). My project for you is a DIY child’s apron that can be adapted to kids from 1 to 99.

You will see their projects down below in a bit. For now check out what I dug out of my linen stash. What you see above is some scrap fabric, a remnant of my linen
Don’t you just love a happy ending? I am beyond excited to share a story with you today that I know will leave you inspired. You see, this vintage buffet makeover you’re about to see is the sort of “icing on the cake” for an answer to many prayers. Let’s get this DIY part started!
If you’ve been hanging out with me over the last few years, I’ve mentioned a friend of mine, Mandy. She is not only a source to my junkin’ needs, but a great friend too. I want to give you a background on her story before I get this makeover started.
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
A few weeks ago I shared this view from the thrift store as I was shopping. My first post was about that bread box and how I upcycled it for a sweet project HERE. Today is all about that wire vanity seat. Notice it’s missing a cushion. I’m sharing the details today how to replace a vanity seat in a simple way.
Truth be told, I kinda grabbed it to use in conjunction with the first project. But also because I can NEVER find
Oh happy dance over here! I’m super excited to be back at my sewing machine again for my reduce, reuse, REFASHION fun I share this time each month. What’s that, you say? I am aiming to encourage you to reduce waste, reuse what you have on hand, and refashion it into something for yourself, your home, or for others. Today these hand-me-down bits of cloth are going to become a feed sack tote bag.
Let me just say I have the most awesome friends not only nearby, but online too. When I have readers who think of me and send me goodies, it truly touches my heart. A fellow blogger named Lucy was in the middle of moving and couldn’t take all of her
Don’t you just love that feeling when you get together with your friends to share an activity that you all enjoy? Today is our reduce, reuse, REFASHION time where my blogger friends and I get together to share with you (our reader friends) our latest upcycling fun. You’ll see their projects in just a bit. For my project, I’ve chosen to show you how to take upcycled belts and turn them into home decor.
Maybe that piques your attention and maybe you also think, “no way.” haha. Either way, let’s have some crafty fun!
“I’m back in the saddle again…” It’s time for Round 4 of my curbside haul #trashure adventure. Yahoo! If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, you’ll want to catch up to speed by heading to my first post and working through my DIY fun. Today, my focus is that lovely duo on the left. I’m going to turn them into grain sack antique chairs and show you how too. (giveaway alert!!)
I mentioned before that when I need a chair to complete a project, I can’t find one for anything. I’ll shop all over the place and come up empty-handed. However, it is quite the norm that when I have no need (nor room) for a chair, I will find not one, but two. ahem.
First, let me say that I normally would have grabbed these
Each year when spring rolls around I get excited because it was on Mother’s Day six years ago that I began my blogging adventure. I’ll be having a 6 year blogiversary party soon! Who knew where it would lead me, but the adventure has been grand. Today, I want to show a easy and affordable way to create a DIY Mother’s Day flower basket for mom’s everywhere…or just as an “I Love You” gift or gift to self. tee hee.
What you see above is collection of thrifted, hand-me-down baskets, as well as the Amish-made wooden buckets I carry in my shop. All of these are perfect for creating a special
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
