On the second Tuesday of each month, my blogger friends and I put together a collection of DIY posts for our Trash to Treasure Transformation fun. What could be better than creating with junk from like-minded gals? You’ll see there projects in a bit. But now, you’ll see that my recent thrift store adventure had me all caught up on these beautiful picture frames. My fun begins with how I turned them into a repurposed picture frame shelf.
I found these solid wood frames along with the items in my Operation 80’s makeovers, and knew they had potential. They are big and ornate, so that was a no-brainer
Gotta love it when friends and family enjoy what you do and even encourage you in your love of #trashure. haha. I mean that. Who else do I know that receives someone else’s junk and gets to play with it? It’s a challenge I welcome, even though at times I want to turn it down because of stash overload. In the case of this shelf below, I felt sorry for it. My dad brought it to me and I just had to give it a shot. Let me show you how I rebuilt it into farmhouse kitchen storage.
When he first showed it to me my first thought was, “hot mess”. Even the look on his face told me
Spring for me is the awakening of nature, a much-needed break from the cold winter days (which I have yet to have), and the ever-fun city spring cleanup. haha. I am serious! What could be more fun that looking for free things that can not only be saved from the dump, but turned into beautiful things, right? Take for instance this set of wooden louver doors. I instantly grabbed them up and am going to show you how they became an upcycled louver door shelf. (giveaway alert!)

My goal this year was to replenish my salvaged wood stash and boy did I score some awesome things. You can imagine my delight when I pulled up and saw these doors laying there. In my truck they went along with all the other fun goodies I’ve been showing you on social media.
It’s a new day and a new project on the way! When you’re at the thrift store to you ever spy something that seems to sit there for months and then you start to feel sorry for it? Sometimes I cave and buy it hoping to give it new life. That’s what happened when I kept seeing this beanie baby shelf.
Now, I will be honest…I can’t stand the beanie baby craze, so I apologize to all of you who love them. They are cute, but I could never fathom having dozens of them. I call them dust catchers. Okay, so there’s that. hahaha.
This is a well made shelf, but no one wanted it for obvious reasons. I decided to have fun with this and recreate it all together. Consider yourself warned that I tend
Put your hands together for Trash to Treasure Tuesday!! This is my favorite time of month where my blogger friends and I get together to show you how we take something that’s been cast-off and give it new life. We’ll get to their projects in a bit (plus a prize for you!), but first let me show you my subject for this month’s makeover. Would you like to see this broken chair repurposed into a shelf?
A few years back my best girlfriend said she didn’t have the heart to throw this thing out. Bless her heart because she knew I might like to have a try at it. Ummm…yes. I love a good challenge, and I must admit
Anyone here love storage bins like I do? We are in the middle of our kitchen remodel and a few weeks ago I showed you what I did with a few of the cabinets I had pulled out, like this flower trough…
…and this chalkboard.
Even my latest project using the cabinet doors.
I promised that I would show you what I would do with the rest of my
junk stash, and this shelf that flanked my sink area is next on the hit list. It looks to me like storage bins. Do you see it?

So, I head to my scrap pile that is singing to me, “Here I come to save the day!” and
