It’s a common endeavor of mom’s across the world to find ways to add storage to their home, don’t you think? We love to be organized or at least have the appearance of such a goal. Having cute storage makes it even more fun. This pink bin may be a tad too cute. ahem. In order to free it from its Pepto Bismol state, I’m giving it a DIY makeover into some farmhouse bathroom storage.
Do you like to change things up from time to time? It’s not a new revelation that I enjoy change, especially making things broken and worn new again. Sometimes I begin a little adventure because I have to and other times because I want to. Today is an “I want to” kinda project. You see, this old chest of drawers has been tucked in my sons’ closet for few years and I am relieving it of its hardworking status. It is now time for it to be come a glorified upcycled map cabinet. Yahoo!!
Can you see my vision for this? Well, no worries if not. I’m here to show you my nutty ways. mwahahaha…
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?
It time for Furniture Fixer Uppers! My gal friends and I have a blast each month bringing you DIY furniture inspiration in the projects we create. You’ll see their work in a bit. Today, I’m sharing how this dynamic duo from the thrift store is going to become felted wool footstools. Hang with me…
Okay, so first off I really felt bad for this pair. They had been subject to an upholstery makeover that didn’t really suit their style, but ya know…to each his own. Since they had hung out in the thrift store for a few months, I finally caved and
One of my true delights on my blog is when you all leave me comments and feedback on my work. Sometimes it can feel like I’m talking to the air and I only get lots of love when I do a giveaway, so I wholeheartedly love to hear from you! It seems that many of you love when I take a collected thrifted assortment and give them each a makeover. Today, I have a new lot for you. This motley crew is about to become an example of how to create budget farmhouse decor.
So many times I get asked how I am able to decorate on a tiny budget. Well, the answer lies in making use of what I have or what is affordable. Shopping your home is definitely the easiest, most economical way to change up your decor. Let’s pretend today that you already own this Americana wall art below, but you want a more modern look. It’s about to become a DIY welcome sign coat rack. Hang with me now…
You gotta love the times when you can get together with your friends and do the things you love. Today is that day for my Trash to Treasure gals and me. We adore creating projects to inspire you and are eager to share our handiwork for this month’s fun. While you will see their work in a bit, today I’m sharing the second table from my curbside haul. This rusty gem is about to become an upcycled farmhouse tray. Oh yeah!
Can you resist cute farm animals? I, for one, can not. I won’t say I have a favorite, but I truly adore cows, chicken, horses, goats, pigs, and sheep – any and all. A few years ago I made each of my kids a woolly clothespin sheep ornament and that inspired me to make a larger version a while back (tutorial HERE). As a result of sharing that tutorial, many of you asked for a DIY on how to make the smaller ornament too. Well, today’s the day!
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
