Fall Pumpkin Button Art ~ Kids CREATE

Do you have any sweet memories related to buttons? I sure do. I remember a tin my mom had full of glorious treats to behold. There were all sorts of colors and shapes, with some even holding memories. As time passed, I now I have my own stash, and also have started my kids with their own as well. Today, my daughter and I are sharing the next episode of our Prodigal Pieces Kids CREATE. This time around we are creating fall pumpkin button art and few other designs too.

Modern Farmhouse Chic Nighstand

Earlier this week in my table project post, I promised to show you a furniture makeover that one of my daughters had been working on. Miss E. has never had her time in the spotlight as that is not usually her style anyway. However, I felt the need to share this project for a couple of different reasons. I’d like to show you how she gave this outdated chest nightstand a modern farmhouse chic look. Plus, inspire you to do more.

My awesome parents are always on the lookout for project piece for me or my kids. They know that each time I get a free piece that I pass it along to one of them. You can imagine how excited they get when a new one comes along. To see their past work, you can check out these posts.

When my mom told me she had a small chest to work on, I decided it would be Miss E’s turn. She has done piece before, like this one she Read more

Just wait until you see what my blogger friends have for you too.

Here’s the story behind my find. I was being a good girl and not even going out junkin’ during our city clean-up. Why, you ask? Because my garage shop is a wreck from our remodel and I have NO ROOM! Plus, I only like to keep on hand what I can work on in the next few weeks.

Anyhoo, it was our quadrant’s time to set out trash and I promised myself that if I saw something en route from my house to errands that I was allowed to pick it up. Only catch was it had to be AFTER all the pickers had already gone through. Otherwise, all was off-limits. So here’s a sampling of some of what I found in one day…eep! Read more

Call me crazy, but a year ago my youngest son wanted a lamp for his bunk bed. I purchased this one laying up above from a big box store. Sadly, it only lasted a couple of months (no surprise). However, the minute it didn’t work, I Read more

Upcycled Entertainment Center into Child’s Wardrobe

This is what happens when I head into the thrift store looking for a small project to work on. I didn’t find anything but pressed wood junk, and then there’s this big beast. I stop, I stare, I talk to myself. Do you do that? Well, after much discussion with me, myself, and I, I decided to haul this bad boy home. Meet my latest project…an upcycled entertainment center.

The funny thing is that I have seriously backed off my furniture projects for more reason than one. However, I needed to fulfill a requirement and this would fit the bill. It has damage, but Read more

Serpentine Dresser with French Country Style

“It’s pretty beat up…” those words are music to my junk-lovin’ ears. I purposefully don’t work on pieces that are just fine only to paint them. However, I look for the unwanteds, the misfits, the beaten down beauties just waiting for new life. Enter in this vintage serpentine dresser.

This ol’ gal was hiding away behind some clothing racks and bins with no price tag. When I inquired with the owner on asking price, she wanted to verify the cost with her husband. That quote above were her words, and it made me think to myself… Read more

Funny thing is I didn’t have to travel far for this wood. My next-door neighbor actually had a few of these strewn about over a year’s time so they got nice and weathered. I was running low on project wood, so I offered to Read more
