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. (giveaway alert!)

Larissa Haynes of Prodigal Pieces shows you how to create a DIY tiered planter in a day. Come see at prodigalpieces.com

The best part about this entire project is it can be tweaked to your liking in oodles of ways. I am going to demonstrate an aged French finish in my latest video, but as you will see the options are limitless.

Earlier this week I showed you I took a curbside changing table my dad salvaged for me and turned it into a cart. I promised I would be back with more of my dad’s haul for me, and today’s the day.

Okay, so this table is not only showcasing that gorgeous orange stain (insert sarcasm), it is also standing on a broken leg. (aka. hot mess) See the back left?

This never fails to happen to me. I walk into the store knowing full well that I don’t need another piece to work on and am there on a solitary mission. Then, there it is…a big ol’ sign saying 50% off furniture. Well, any sane person couldn’t ignore that, right? Read more

DIY Garden Arbor with Faux Patina ~ Build Plans

If you are just joining in, we have been working in our back yard this summer giving it a much needed facelift. First, was our DIY compost bin, then our DIY fire pit. Today we are sharing the next stage of our renovations – our DIY garden arbor with play area. It began like this…

Back Yard Wood Pile Before Makeover | prodigalpieces.com

Yep, a hot mess. Each winter we run through a WHOLE LOTTA firewood. This is our wood pile that is normally full to the brim. However, I snapped this at the beginning of spring when we can break out of our cabin fever and get outside to clean up winter mess. Normally this is covered with a giant tarp, so my kids stick their bikes here to keep them out of the weather as our shed is full too. (next on my hit list)

Since 2003, I have had the pleasure of looking out our dining area and seeing this… Read more

Loser makes all! That means the loser makes a dessert of choice for the winner. mwahahaha!! To get us started we’ll begin with this buffet makeover. Let’s get our DIY on!

Mr I. is no newbie to this game, so I have my work cut out for me. You can see his past work in his own makeovers HERE.Β It’s hard for me to believe that not only am I a mom to a teenager, but he’s already out-growing me. I’m not short at 5’10”!

Vintage Vanity Painted Tea Rose Pink

Do you ever have conversations with someone that leave you saying, “That was really weird”? While perusing Craigslist I came upon this piece advertised as a desk. To me it looked like a vanity without a mirror. I called to inquire and he said he still had it. Sweet! Stay with me as I show you how this “desk” became a vintage vanity painted a soft tea rose pink.

I continued to ask the seller if there was anything wrong with it and if it was smoke-free. He replied that it was solid as a rock, smoke-free, and would take him quite some time to dismantle it to get it out of his basement. He also said he had another buyer coming to see it first. I said, “Oh, it’s that big?” He replied, “Yes, and you’ll need help to load it.” I went on to ask more questions, but still getting the feeling like something was off. Read more
