Do you ever have one of those projects that keeps taunting you? Like, when you walk by it keeps begging you to do something and even whispers, “Why are you taking so long??” That’s when I want to scream back at it and say, “I haven’t decided on THE BEST use yet! sigh… However, ladies and gents, today is a momentous day. Not only because of what I created, but that I finally got time to do it. Now, let me show you what I did with this repurposed louver door set that had been staring me down for months, if not years.
Around a year ago, I showed you what I created with the upper half of this door set. Remember my kitchen island cart? You can read the full post over here.
There is rarely a time that I don’t go with my gut when I spy something in the thrift store that piques my interest. However, there are occasions where I ponder, debate, and end up walking away only to go back and get whatever it is I left behind. Such is the case with this time, except it’s not just one medicine cabinet, it’s two. ahem.
I guess you may be wondering two things: (1) why did I leave them (2) why did I go back and get them? Well, since we ship most of our shop items, I have promised JC that I would stop
When you want a certain style achieved in your home story, but lack a big budget, do know that it’s attainable. Seriously, it is. You may be thinking I’m off my rocker, and you’re right. I’m at the thrift store buying up all the goodies I can find! haha! Don’t waste another minute waiting for that budget windfall, but rather get yourself motivated to create. I’m going to show you how I took a few thrifted finds and turned them into DIY farmhouse decor. Check it out…
I’ve said it before, but the wood section of the thrift store is a gold mine. You can recreate wood a dozen times over and it still looks good. For instance, here is my ragamuffin group in their ugly stages – a footstool, a shelf, a wall decor piece, and some sort of cubby.
I don’t wonder if I should rename myself the hot mess mama. Not because I myself am a hot mess (though I can be at times – aren’t we all?), but because of these crazy pieces I bring home then ask my self…why did you do this?! hahaha!! Being a sucker for the worn down, dilapidated pieces is my calling and this Art Deco vanity is one that gave me a run for my money.
You see in the before picture here I’m smiling like a kid in a candy store. However, during the middle of working on it I don’t know if I was smiling quite so big…still smiling, but the fun wore off a bit. Why, you ask? Well, it was a whole lotta work that was totally doable, but I was running out of
What’s a mom supposed to do when her kids ask to go to the thrift store? Take a deep breath and reply, “Sure, but you know, I just may find something there that I can’t leave and that means hauling it home, etc., etc.” They bat an eyelash, but I’m like…I want my storage space open just for a while! haha. Well, as I walked out to our vehicle I bid farewell to the open spaces and continued on my journey. Last week I showed you what I did with the farmhouse drop-leaf table I found that day. Today, I’m going to show you how a classic piece became a Boho Mid Century Modern dresser. Take a look…
When I shared this pic on social media everyone thought it was the most awesome piece they had ever seen. I was actually only sharing how one who is crazy enough to have
There is no doubt in my mind that when I see side tables in need of some lovin’, that I have a soft spot. Any and all sizes, shapes, and degree of dilapidated states are my weakness. Can you blame me when I spied this antique side table that I got weak in the knees? I know I’m not alone, c’mon now. tsk.
You may not remember, but a couple of years ago I found an almost identical table and gave it a new look too. It has been one of my popular posts you can see
Do you have a green thumb? No worries if not because my project today will be perfect for fresh or faux displays. It’s all about getting crafty and I’m here to show you how in my latest video. We’re going to take our gardening to new heights by creating a DIY tiered planter that will give you the option to add French flair.
The best part about this entire project is it can be tweaked to your liking in oodles of ways. For this purpose, I am going to demonstrate an aged French finish in my latest video. As a result, you will see the options are limitless. Yay!
