Every once in a while there will be an invention that comes about that makes us say, “How did I ever do without this?”. To me, tools are worth their weight in gold for they allow us to do all sorts of wonderful things. My latest addition to my arsenal is going to save my marriage (you know what I’m talkin’ about) and my sanity. Here is what my life was like without my new spray shelter.

I would try to use boxes, sheets, any old thing to try to protect my work area, my yard, etc. Nothing really worked, or if it did was a pain to set up and take down.
Enter in my new toy…
There are so many little things that delight my heart, truly. It can be as simple as my kids bringing me a sweet wildflower bouquet, a slice of homemade strawberry pie, or spending time in God’s word. Another one of my delights is sharing projects with you so I can empower you to try projects yourself. Who knows, maybe I’ll even help you learn something new. Today, I thought I would share a furniture makeover that will help you achieve a factory finish in a day. Sounds easy enough, right?
This Mid Century Modern dresser (or credenza) was made by Dixie back in the Brady Bunch days. The Dixie line of furniture has stood the test of time and and still a coveted piece of furniture. This isn’t my first makeover of a Dixie piece, you see my French provincial set in this post.
I found this piece for today in almost mint condition, but somewhere along the line
Spring is in the air! When this time of year comes around I’m eager to greet the season with some DIY fun. What better than to go on a #trashure hunt adventure and create a DIY spring centerpiece from thrifted finds…right? Here is what I picked and am excited to share with you. (giveaway alert!)
What you are looking at above there is a pair of candle holders, a stack of mini metal pails, some vintage linens, and a beat up Melissa & Doug toy wooden crate. If there ever was a
It’s a common endeavor of mom’s across the world to find ways to add storage to their home, don’t you think? We love to be organized or at least have the appearance of such a goal. Having cute storage makes it even more fun. This pink bin may be a tad too cute. ahem. In order to free it from its Pepto Bismol state, I’m giving it a DIY makeover into some farmhouse bathroom storage.
First of all, bins are super handy, portable, and can hide our daily-grind necessities. I just may not want a bright pink bin in my bathroom. To remedy that,
Do you like to change things up from time to time? It’s not a new revelation that I enjoy change, especially making things broken and worn new again. Sometimes I begin a little adventure because I have to and other times because I want to. Today is an “I want to” kinda project. You see, this old chest of drawers has been tucked in my sons’ closet for few years and I am relieving it of its hardworking status. It is now time for it to be come a glorified upcycled map cabinet. Yahoo!!
Can you see my vision for this? Well, no worries if not. I’m here to show you my nutty ways. mwahahaha…
When I say this thing was hardworking, I wasn’t kidding. I put this in my boys’ room hoping to help them stay clean and organized. Well…my good intentions went down the drain. All they did was
Maybe the holidays have passed and you’re looking to purge, or maybe it’s time to drag out the decorations and you’re debating on changing it up this year. Either way, don’t pitch or donate your unwanted holiday decor. I’m going to show you one of the ways you can upcycle old Christmas decor into something new for your home. It’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday, so stick around to see what my blogger friends have for you too.
Let’s pretend for a minute that this set of cutesy snowman art is no long your fancy. I admit, even I have taken things to the thrift store like this just to be rid of it. However, let’s look at them in a different light.
At first glance, there’s nothing really wrong with them, and the bonus is
You gotta love the times when you can get together with your friends and do the things you love. Today is that day for my Trash to Treasure gals and me. We adore creating projects to inspire you and are eager to share our handiwork for this month’s fun. While you will see their work in a bit, today I’m sharing the second table from my curbside haul. This rusty gem is about to become an upcycled farmhouse tray. Oh yeah!
In case you missed the first post, I found these two tables in my neighbor’s trash across the street. The tiered table got made into 3 new projects you can
‘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
There’s no doubt that we all have those projects that go sour and we’d rather not mention. Am I right? Ya know, the “just-donate-it-to-the-thrift-store-while-in-super-sleuth-mode” kinda project. I will be the first to confess I’ve given away projects I would have rather thrown in a lake. So, for some reason I felt bad for this set found at the thrift store. Hang with me as I turn them into a fun set of farmhouse kitchen canisters. yahoo!
My first thought upon seeing them was, “Pinterest fail…bwahahaha”. However, that morphed into, “Well, they tried.” Me and my pitying self always
