Volkswagen Mini BEEP and Hippie Paint Brush Fun

Y’all ready for this? Last week in my antique side table post I mentioned being in a contest this week with four other bloggers. The challenge was to take a set of my favorite Zibra paint brushes and give them and artistic vibe in my choosing. The winner of the contest gets $350 (yep, oodles of smackers!!). Do you think I can do it? With your  help I can. (giveaway for you too!) Here are the brushes I was sent:

Inside, this is what you see: the boxed set of the project brushes, whereas the bag of brushes contain some newly created brushes that haven’t hit the market yet. So, that will be fun to give them a test run.

Volkswagen Bus Chest – BEEP Christmas Version

Exciting things are about to happen! I have been waiting for this day for such a long time. I have also been praying that this would as much of a blessing to you as it is to me. Before I get to my announcement, I would like to show you my latest project. Back in August I created BEEP – my garage sale freebie turned Volkswagen Bus.

Little did I know how BEEP would make such waves in the internet world and be showcased in blogs around the globe. It’s been an exciting ride! He’s been going viral again thanks to some new features by enormous businesses that I believe were not coincidental, but providential.

Here’s why….enter in a second Art Deco waterfall chest of drawers found on Craigslist.

Garage Sale Freebie to Volkswagen Bus

Early this past spring, I was on the hunt for furniture for our girls room makeover. They had a mish-mosh of pieces that didn’t coordinate and needed more space. When I spied a local garage sale had a vintage French Provincial set, I hopped on over. (Bedroom makeover coming soon!) Turns out a good friend was helping her family with the sale and showed me this dresser. I instantly knew it would make a fantastic Volkswagen …oh yessss…

This is an Art Deco waterfall chest of drawers. It was marked $5 and she told me I could have it for FREE because it was junk. (Thank you, Julie!) Again, my brain says, “Bring it on!” Am I crazy? Maybe, but life is more fun that way.

So, now I have two Art Deco chest of drawers (or tall boys) awaiting new life and my first pick to work on was the second one. Read more

Upcycled Christmas Tree from Curbside Table

‘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 Read more

What kinda fun makes your pulse quicken? I could list many things, but one of the most exciting times is when I get a minute to dig into my stash of #trashure and create. Can you blame me? Seeing someone’s trash or cast off junk become something new is exhilarating! I know I’m not alone. What you see below are my own kitchen drawer fronts that are about to become an upcycled plant stand. Oh yeah!!

Vintage Blanket Chest Before Makeover by Larissa of Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

I’m going to be perfectly honest with you…I was mad I bought this. First, to defend myself, I did look at all the possible problems it may have: stink, damage (I was more concerned about the lid), functionality, etc. However, I somehow missed Read more

Today’s the day! I feel like a kid that’s been waiting to open a BIG birthday present, but instead I’m getting the sheer joy of giving presents to others.

Finding Home ~ My Way of Giving Back

“‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” – the words of Jesus from Acts 20:35 that I have heard throughout my life and wholeheartedly agree with. Nothing can compare to the joy that can be found in seeing someone delight in sacrificial love. Have you ever had that blessing bestowed upon you? I may not have been blessed with riches, and that is beyond fine with me. However, one thing I’ve always asked God that I have enough that I can share with others. My friends, today is all about Finding Home.

Prodigal Pieces Finding Home - a furniture re-homing program for those who need it most | prodigalpieces.com

Have you ever had a longing in your heart to do something to make a difference in a BIG way. I kind of eluded to my desire in my New Beginnings post I did a few weeks back. I have other dreams that can not be acted on as of yet as I see God still working things out. However, one heart-felt leading that I did get was to Read more

Habitat for Humanity Campaign ~ Home is the Key

Home. Isn’t that one of the sweetest words there is. You can have a house, an apartment, even a yurt, but it isn’t a home unless there is something to make it so. Fortunately, I’m blessed to have a home and family to share it with, but not all are so fortunate. Today, I’m delighted to share with you and invite you to take part in the Habitat for Humanity campaign “Home is the Key”.
