It is on a daily basis that I get asked questions either about a project that I have worked on in the past or a person has their own project they’d like some advice on. I’m eager to help and try to be informative. This time around, however, I am able to physically help out a local follower with this piece she had. Her second-hand find is about to become a painted entertainment stand. Check it out. (giveaway alert!)
Grandma’s old silverware box is about to get the makeover of a lifetime! tee hee!! You know you find these kinds of things at the thrift stores or garage sales, right? Maybe you wonder what it could be used for. Well, two things (1) it’s wood (2) it’s storage. Who doesn’t love extra storage? My goal is to show you one was to make use of this upcycled silverware box. Hang with me now.
If you remember, I had already demonstrated how I took another silverware box and upcycled it with an antique washboard to get this…
You can see my tutorial and peek inside this cupboard in this post over HERE. For today, however, I’m going a completely different route.
It’s nothing new that organization keeps a body sane. There’s no hassle with clean-up and definitely saves time and can even keep your investments in a better state. What you’re looking at is a spot that has kinda been an eye-sore to me and my family for a couple of years. I’ve promised to show you our project when it was time to build, so today I’m sharing our DIY bike garden shed. (giveaway alert!)
Back in 2003 when we moved in, this spot held a small shed that would house trash cans. We never used it for that, but did store other items inside. After a few years it became dilapidated and I took it down. The wood from it became part of my
Do you ever have one of those projects that just seems like it keeps bugging you that it needs tweaking? Well, one of the best things about our home is the storage. Our home may be on the small side, but it is tweaked out for storage. A favorite feature is our mudroom. Today, I’m going to share (yet another) mudroom update. This is the third time around, but it’s high time we get it right!
When cooler weather hangs around for quite some time in my part of the world, I begin to miss my workshop. I tend to focus on indoor projects for the most part. However, sometimes something pops up that makes me willing to wear my 3 layers and have at it. tee hee. This vintage gem I recently found is about to become my upcycled bookcase headboard turned farmhouse hutch. Do you see the potential?
First, I’m curious…how many of you had one of these? I didn’t, but many of my friends did. Seemed cool to have your books handy right as you were ready to hunker down for the night. My family and I are confessed
It’s that time again! Furniture Fixer Uppers day is here and I’m excited to share with you this vintage accent table that stole my heart at the thrift store. I’ll show you what my gal friends worked on in a bit.
Why did it catch my attention? Well, it’s cute in size, but also function. These little tables can go in most any room and can add a bit of fun as well. This one, however, has seen some lovin’, and I want to
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…
Yes, I am the nut perusing the wood section of the thrift store like a sleuth looking for diamonds. They are, after all “diamonds in the rough”, right? I’m sure many passed this fruity shelf up, but I saw a fun project just waiting. I plan to turn this into an upcycled farmhouse coat rack. Do you see it?
‘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!
