Farmhouse Fall Bedroom Decor with a Story

The harvest season in full swing and autumn right at our back door, I find it irresistible to bring that beauty inside. Most of us see fit to decorate our living spaces, but I’m curious…do you seasonally decorate your bedroom too? I won’t say I always do due to lack of time. However, today I’m sharing my farmhouse fall bedroom decor.

Harvest Pumpkin and Autumn Joy in Garden by Larissa of Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com #prodigalpieces

Truth be told that most often my bedroom is dark when I wake up, and I may go in there a few times during the day to grab something or catch a cat nap. However, with the imminent colder temps on their way, I tend to be inside more, so I want Read more

DIY Farmhouse Sign with Typography

I’d like to introduce you to Bo and Mo, my latest thrift store finds. Why on earth would I bring these home, you say? Well, they’re wooden, cute, and full of potential. Do you see it? This chessboard duo is about to help me show you how to create a DIY farmhouse sign with typography. Oh yeah! {{twangy banjo music begins}}

Wooden Animal Cutouts from the Thrift Store | prodigalpieces.com

Okay, so maybe I’m a little nutty for seeing potential in these two pieces, but you can’t blame me for trying. If you take a closer look, Mo (the cow) is just a wood cutout with a chessboard painted on, plus that snazzy bell necklace. However, Bo, on the other hand, Read more

DIY Doorstop from Upcycled Baby Bib Overalls

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.

How to Replace a Vanity Seat (or any seat)

A few weeks ago I shared this view from the thrift store as I was shopping. My first post was about that bread box and how I upcycled it for a sweet project HERE. Today is all about that wire vanity seat. Notice it’s missing a cushion. I’m sharing the details today how to replace a vanity seat in a simple way.

Feed Sack Tote Bag ~ reduce, reuse, REFASHION

Oh happy dance over here! I’m super excited to be back at my sewing machine again for my reduce, reuse, REFASHION fun I share this time each month. What’s that, you say? I am aiming to encourage you to reduce waste, reuse what you have on hand, and refashion it into something for yourself, your home, or for others. Today these hand-me-down bits of cloth are going to become a feed sack tote bag.

Cut Feed Sack Before Upcycle by Larissa of Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

Let me just say I have the most awesome friends not only nearby, but online too. When I have readers who think of me and send me goodies, it truly touches my heart.Β  A fellow blogger named Lucy was in the middle of moving and couldn’t take all of her Read more

Vintage Cosco Cart Gets Retro Makeover

Apparently I am sucker for all things cart. I mean, really. They are irresistible as they provide function, storage, and a cute factor to most any style of home. Can you blame me that I felt sorry for this worn out vintage Cosco cart when I saw it at the thrift store?

Cosco Bar Cart Before Makeover by Larissa of Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

I’ll admit I paid more for it than I think I should have. tsk. However, I repeat…I love carts! You can see all my past cart makeovers and builds HERE.

The original color appeared to be an off white, as you can see it peeking through. At some point, someone decided to Read more

“I’m back in the saddle again…” It’s time for Round 4 of my curbside haul #trashure adventure. Yahoo! If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, you’ll want to catch up to speed by heading to my first post and working through my DIY fun. Today, my focus is that lovely duo on the left.

Curbside Haul Makeover Part 3 by Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

I mentioned before that when I need a chair to complete a project, I can’t find one for anything. I’ll shop all over the place and come up empty-handed. However, it is quite the norm that when I have no need (nor room) for a chair, I will find not one, but two. ahem.

Farmhouse Chest of Drawers from the Curb

It’s time for Round 3 of my #trashure curbside haul. To catch you up to speed, this is the pile I scored from one person’s yard during our spring city cleanup. I’ve already made over that pie crust table and dog shelf. It’s time to tackle that awfully painted piece and turn it into a farmhouse chest of drawers for our Trash to Treasure fun.

If you remember, I asked JC (aka. husband) which piece he would have left on the curb. He said the chest. {{gasp}} In spite of the obvious, I replied that it was the Read more

Upcycled Pallet Twice Over ~ Farmhouse Towel Rack

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last 10 years, it’s no news that pallets have won the world over for their potential. You can see all my pallet projects in these posts HERE to see what I mean. As you can imagine I kinda giggled when I saw this upcycled pallet in the thrift store. Since it’s not my style, I felt the need to purchase it and relieve it from the outdoorsy look.
