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?
The holiday season is definitely fun for letting our creative side run wild. I love to get my six kids involved in gift making and creating. They all agreed they wanted to inspire you and your kids to get your craft on too. Today we are going to to show you how you can create an upcycled Christmas cupboard door project for any age. We’re all about inspiring you to get have some DIY fun. Join me and my gang for a cupboard adventure!
What you see above is a selection of cupboard doors that my kids picked out from my stash below. Did you read the story about how I acquired that pile o’ goodness? If not, you can get up to speed HERE.
My heart and eye are always drawn to the cast-offs. I think I even do the same people. I was always befriending the kids in school that no one wanted to play with. Yes, I was made fun of and assumptions were made, but I didn’t care. That’s how I felt about this worn out Mid Century Modern dresser I found online. It needs some attention, but that’s easy-peasy. Check out how I’m going to turn this into an Ikat Mid Century Modern dresser. Let’s have some fun! (new video tutorial!)
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
While maybe at times I pass up on cast-offs that cross my path, the one thing I can assuredly say I can’t resist is wood. The wood can be old, worn, beaten down, and even just like these two broken tiered stands, just needing new life. They are my dynamic duo about to get a brand new life as an upcycled wall clock. Woot!
You may be wondering how I came upon such beauty. Well, the story goes that I was feverishly trying to wrap up our kitchen remodel reveal when my friend, Mandy, sent me a message asking if I wanted to take a peek at her
Do you do a spring cleaning each year? For me, it seems like each month is spring with my family of 8 because I’m forever purging and cleaning. ha! Not complaining, just the truth. If I’m cleaning I know I have loved ones around me. Take for instance my workshop, full of goodies ready to become something new. These doors came off of a buffet that my son completed HERE (you seriously have to see it!). We promised to show you this repurposed cabinet door project. Oh, and we have a WINNER for the Zibra prize package!
Because these doors had cracks where the hinges were, they became unusable as they were originally intended. However, are they trash? NO WAY. Trashure I say! I recently gave my own kitchen cupboard doors new life by turning them into
Mama on a mission here! I am a driven person, if you haven’t figured that out yet. mwahaha…and my workshop is getting an overhaul like noneother. Destashing the stash feels oh so good (and makes room for new, of course. tsk). I have had a small set of cupboard doors left over from from this pile of kitchen remodel goodness since forever and they finally are getting new life today. Time for some DIY storage!
