Upcycled Plant Caddy Bamboo Side Table

One of my favorite times of the month is here, Trash to Treasure Tuesday! This is a fun day where my blogger friends and I get together a few projects to inspire you. You’ll find their projects at the end of this post. For me today this pair of ornate iron plates are going to become my upcycled plant caddy project.Plant Caddy Bases Before Makeover by Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

Yet again, my dad comes to the rescue. Apparently these were my mom’s plant caddy’s that had the casters fall off. She was going to throw them away. {{gasp}} Mom!! tsk. As soon as he showed me I replied, “They’re cast iron, Read more

Upcycled Dresser Mirror Found Curbside

Nothing like getting a text from a friend who is standing out in the freezing rain telling you she found a couple of mirrors set on the curb she thought you would like. Sweet Mandy not only grabbed her wagon to haul them home, but enlisted her husband too. I felt so bad! But…I’m so glad she saw the potential in this gem. Stick around to see what I do with this upcycled dresser mirror. Isn’t it pretty?

Waterfall Hope Chest Restored & Renewed

You know it’s a good day when you head out to an old building that has been bought and renovated and they just, “want the stuff outta here”. Musical words to my ears. I couldn’t resist taking a peek at all they had to offer. Of course, this vintage Art Deco waterfall hope chest caught my eye and I had to bring it home.

To say I’m excited for the young couple I got the chest from is an understatement. They purchased a downtown building in my city that has seen many days and ugly updates. However, they are renovating it back to the original glory it once was. We’re talking uncovering the pressed tin ceiling hiding behind a drop ceiling, old wood Read more

Nectar Mattress Review by My Family of 8

As a mom to 6 children there are a few precious things in the life: my faith, my family, my health…and MY SLEEP. For real though, I am one of those people that can do anything, but if you mess with my sleep, this mama ain’t happy. I can deal with babies at night, kids being up all night sick, and so on no problem. However, I just want a good night of rest on all the other nights, k? So, my first reaction when I got asked to do NECTAR mattress review was…umm…maybe. hahaha. Here I am, along with my gang of 8, to give my honest explanation of my sleeping saga.

Farmhouse Bar Stools ~ The Easy Way

I might just be a little bit giddy. I might just be a little bit over-the moon. Why? Because we are finally back at our kitchen remodel that we started in January of 2016…yes, almost 2 years ago!! If you follow me on social media, you’ve seen our trials, but the best place to catch up is here. Today, is Furniture Fixer Uppers day, and my dated stools are about to become farmhouse bar stools. See the end of the post for more fun from my friends!

Farmhouse Style Decor ~ How to add it to your home

You know I love me some farmhouse style decor. Do I live on a farm? No. Do I want to live on a farm? YES. Funny thing is I was born on a farm (and act like it too – ha!) and lived in rural life until I left the nest. So many of us adore the simplicity of farmhouse decor, but don’t live on a farm. However, we don’t have to wait for that “farm in the sky” to have it.  Whether it’s good ol’ fashioned farmhouse or modern farmhouse, you can get the look for less. Let me show you what I mean. (I have a video for you!)

Want to add farmhouse style decor to your home, but lack a big budget? It's easier than you think. Come see at Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

First, let me say that country living is in my bones and one day I will get there whether here or in heaven. God hasn’t seen fit to bless me with that opportunity yet, so I am making the most of my blessings.

Some of the ways I have incorporated my passion into my home is by Read more

Remodeling Stress ~ How to Cope During DIY Projects

Numerous shows are on television demonstrating how “easy” it can be to take a home and turn it into something fabulous. Knock out a wall (or two), put down new flooring, and even add-on…all in one episode. It all seems so glorious and begs you to give DIY a try, doesn’t it? Somehow though, it doesn’t quite prepare you for real life DIY and the reality of remodeling stress. Yep, I’m talking about that smack-in-the-face kind of “What is going on?” feeling. To aid in that journey to get that euphoric accomplishment feeling, I am going to share 5 ways to prepare and cope during your remodel.

Being a homeowner is one of the purest joys that be found. It’s responsibility and freedom that can’t be found elsewhere. I liken it to a roller-coaster ride, full of Read more

Affordable Area Rugs to Fit Any Decor

If you know me, then you know I am all about making our house a home affordably. It makes no sense to me to spend big bucks on something when you can get the exact same thing for less elsewhere or make it yourself. Problem is, knowing where to find those deals. That hunt can take time and time is money. Thankfully, I was able to enhance my family room by adding a rug, and I want to share with you the affordable area rugs I found. PLUS, I have a giveaway! eep!

Enter in our family room… this used to be a detached garage. Bet you’ve never seen a garage look so good! If you follow along, you know that last week I shared with you how on a whim I decided to give my fireplace a makeover. The view I’m about to show you is to the left of that same fireplace.

In the future, I will show you the true before as a few years ago I did three coats of paint and stain-blocking primer to this room, tore down a drop ceiling, and made my pallet shutters and barnwood & bedskirt valance. (both have tutorials) I even got the entertainment center for free from a guy who was originally going to charge me $100, but told us we could have it if we would take his projection TV’s. Deal! Serious praise is that most everything in this room was received for Read more

Faux Crate Drawers ~ Farmhouse Kitchen Update

You guys!! My family and I have been working so hard in our kitchen remodel while trying to keep up with life. (It happens, ya know.) I’m very excited to share with you the latest that we’ve been working on. For today’s post, I’ve had this project in my brain since FOREVER, and to see it finally come to fruition is wonderful. I’m going to show you how I took our boring builder grade kitchen drawers and turned them into faux crate drawers.

For those of you just joining in, I invite you to check out where we started from HERE, and then our last update HERE.

So…my email subscribers got to see this first, but here is how our ceiling looks now. *if you want to be in on the know, sign up for my newsletters either sign up in the sidebar on computer, or at the bottom of the page on mobile.

Farmhouse Beadboard Coffered Ceiling in Kitchen by Prodigal Pieces | www.prodigalpieces.com

We love how much more bright and light our kitchen is without the faux beams we had originally. We’ve added recessed lighting to our kitchen, and new fixtures to our laundry, as well as updated our hot wiring mess.

Whomever wired this house is, well…scary! Our panel is a mish-mosh of connections that don’t make sense and my husband has spent his last four weekends in our attic roasting like a turkey fixing it all. That whole thing has eaten up our precious time, but we want to make it right. He even found a live wire just sitting up there – ask him how he knows. ahem.

While he’s doing that, I’ve been up to some repurposed fun. Enter in my kitchen drawers…
