Time for the next installment of my cupboard door stash makeover. Yahoo!! If you have no clue what I’m talking about, head HERE to begin the fun. My gift of cupboard doors is becoming more and more fruitful. I was ready to give away that thrifted metal art, but then I had a light-bulb moment (don’t you just love those?). This pile below is about to get transformed into farmhouse wall decor.

The light-bulb moment I mentioned was that I realized I had two square cupboard doors in my stash that would work perfectly. My vision was to
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
I just have to say I have the coolest friends and family. They know my #trashure lovin’ heart and vision for other people’s unwanteds. This time around I am sharing how these cast-off Target bar cart parts gets turned into upcycled serving trays. It’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday too, so you’ll get to see what my blogger friends have for you too. Hooray!
Would you have passed up these bar cart pieces if offered to you? When Mandy sent me the picture of them, I was kinda like…fun! Most often I am up to a good challenge. This caught my interest because
If you are new to my blog in the last few weeks, you may have missed the fact that a friend of mine gave me a giant plastic tote of wooden pieces to play with. My kinda fun! It all began with a letter holder I upcycled in this post and then my recipe box. Today, these two pieces are about to become my upcycled washboard & silverware box cupboard. Try saying that 5 times fast. tee hee!
At a quick glance, the vintage washboard is in excellent shape and would be just fine left as-is. However, just hanging it on the wall (how I have mine in my own home) is fine, but I thought
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
If you have been following along with me over the last few months, you know I have the stash to end all stashes in cupboard doors. Well, at the same time I acquired the doors, I also received this dandy pile of drawer fronts. They totally have potential, don’t they? I mean, they’re good wood and perfect for making something fun. I’d like to show you how I chose to use my upcycled drawer fronts.
What you’re looking at is a pile of mostly solid wood with one MDF drawer front (the white one). My self-inflicted goal was to
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?
Okay, so I’ll admit that the food carving on the front wasn’t that bad, but it had that “Made in …. ” look to it. The faux dental molding was kinda meh, and I saw the

Happy dance goin’ on over here as it’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday! This fun day is for you – to inspire you to give DIY a try. You’ll see my friend’s projects below. Today is all about a fantastic haul I was gifted with recently. You know I never turn down wood, right? Well, this orphaned cupboard sample crew is about to become a repurposed cupboard door jewelry cabinet. Game ON!
Before I show you what I did with these, first, let me tell you how I came upon them. A huge thanks goes to my friend Sue. She sent me a massage asking if I would like some cupboard doors. Apparently, her son does cabinetry work on the side and had some doors that were new, but had a flaw or two so they couldn’t be used. She mentioned he was going to burn them because he didn’t
