Vintage Piano Bench Makeover to Bedroom Bench

One of the things I like to focus on in my home is function over form. However, it is blissful when they can be melded together. Take for instance this vintage piano bench. Yes, it’s original purpose is for sitting in front of a piano and storing music. Yet, I see a new use in home decor.

The bonus features of this piano bench is that it’s in great condition with the tapered legs, and hinged lid top. Have you seen my other piano bench makeovers? Check them out in these past posts.

Amazingly enough, I now have two teen drivers in my home. {{gasp!!}} I am not that old(ish), am I? Sigh… Well, in order for said teens to have wheels, they need money. And, in my mama-lovin’ way, I do what I can to help my kids earn the money they need. My daughter, Miss C, has reworked plenty of furniture in her time (SEE HERE). She is hoping for a project piece to sell to raise said funds.

I hopped online and found this cute girls vanity table set. Thankfully, we both agree it is

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

My daughters have been using this chest as a place to store hair accessories, legging, tights, etc. It did, however, look this shabby when I got it. I have been patiently waiting until we got our girls’

Well, you know I had to do something with this

Vintage Side Table Made New

It’s pretty good feeling when someone brings you a haul of furniture, simply because they believe you can give it new life. My dad presents me with projects because he has faith in my abilities – both my parents do. In his current line of work, many project pieces cross his path and he texts me with potential. Lately, I have turned down items left and right. For some reason, this time I took in a few of them because…well…who could resist? See that vintage side table among the loot?

That, my friends, is today’s project piece. It is begging me (really!) to relieve it from the nightmare it’s stuck in. Oh, and just so you know, I did

Upcycled Dresser & Mirror Made New

You know you are loved when your friends bring you gifts like this…right? Mandy is always getting her hands on some sweet finds and she set aside this mirror saying it had my name written all over it. What do you think? Well, I gladly accepted, though I wasn’t sure if I should. Check out how I created an upcycled dresser with this mirror that makes it look like they belong together.Cast-off Dresser Mirror Upcycled by Larissa of Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

I’ll never deny I’m a sucker for mirrors in all shapes and sizes. They add light and depth to a room, but can be reworked in many ways. The size of this one kinda limited its repurposing capabilities, but you know I’m game to try.

My first thought was to find a dresser suitable and if that didn’t work out, I’d find a new use for it. Well, within 5 minutes of looking online, I found this antique gem right in my

It’s certainly one of my favorite times and hope it is for you too! Today’s project is this handmade luggage I found during our spring city cleanup.

First, I have to ask if you would have grabbed it? It is so super cool. Check out the LBJ bumper sticker, and the…ummm…fantastic carpet lining. And get this…the back has
