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…
Earlier this week I showed you how I took miniature curbside picket fence and turned it into garden decor. In that post, I showed you this vintage dresser I had picked up on Craigslist. To say it’s dated would be an understatement, right?
Made of mixed woods with a veneer-type top and sides, and also has oak drawer fronts and face. This is certainly a solid piece, BUT… it has the look of “update me please!!”
What made me pay attention to this particular piece was the drawer fronts (not those medieval bull ring pulls). The drawers looked like crates to me. Don’t you think?
Every second Tuesday of the month, a group of my blogger friends and I get together to share our Trash to Treasure Transformations. Wahoo! So be sure to check out their projects at this bottom of this post. Now, I have an industrial makeover for you today!
My project was sort of a no-brainer. The other day, my son and I went to pick up a desk for him to work on, which just happened to be two houses down. (how weird is that?) While there and talking to the awesome lady who was selling the desk, she offered me this handmade trunk.
It’s a handmade storage trunk that she said was in her house when she bought it. It was missing the hardware and she gave it a white coat of paint. And if you know me, I don’t pass up FREE very often. tsk.
A couple of weeks ago we revealed our patio makeover complete with pergola, 10 ft. dining table with benches, a faux fireplace (get the tutorial HERE), and a faux shipping crate table. Today, I am sharing how to create that industrial style crate table with a wood round from Home Depot and a tree stump. PLUS, I have a giveaway for you!
Are you ready for some trashy goodness? Don’t worry, this is a kid-friendly post. I’m talking about trashure – one lady’s trash is a little boy’s treasure. tee hee. Today is Trash to Treasure Tuesday where my blogger friends and I show you how we take unwanteds and turn them into new treasures. You’ll see their projects at the end of this post. Scroll down to see a clock face table makeover.
If you follow me on social media, you would have seen that a few months back my older kids had been working on their own furniture projects and my youngest boy was aching to find a project of his own. His Grandpa had brought over a couple of wooden shelves for him and his older sister to work on, but his broke.
He was so bummed and kept asking me when we could find him something to work on. Then it happened…we were headed in for the evening and he ran up to me excitedly proclaiming that a lady a couple of houses down had just thrown away a chair, or something like it, and it could be his. You can imagine he peaked my interest, so I told him we would check first thing in the morning since it was dark outside.
Do you think he slept in. No siree. He was out of bed lickety-split and we headed down to take a look. I must tell you that he has his mother’s genes. Look at this little gem he found. (notice the angelic light shining! I did not add it – btw.)
A little shabby, yes, but full of potential!
