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!
‘Tis the season for holiday decor! One might not think of someone else’s trash as potential for beautifying your home, however, that just depends on your vision. Right? Take a peek below. I yanked this unlikely pair out of my neighbor’s trash across the street over a couple weeks time. Today I’m turning the tiered table on the right into an upcycled Christmas tree. (giveaway alert!)
No worries though, because I’ll get to the table on the left next time. I can’t wait for Trash to Treasure Tuesday!
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!
Happy dance goin’ on over here as it’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday! This fun day is for you – to inspire you to give DIY a try. You’ll see my friend’s projects below. Today is all about a fantastic haul I was gifted with recently. You know I never turn down wood, right? Well, this orphaned cupboard sample crew is about to become a repurposed cupboard door jewelry cabinet. Game ON!
Before I show you what I did with these, first, let me tell you how I came upon them. A huge thanks goes to my friend Sue. She sent me a massage asking if I would like some cupboard doors. Apparently, her son does cabinetry work on the side and had some doors that were new, but had a flaw or two so they couldn’t be used. She mentioned he was going to burn them because he didn’t
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
“A hunting we will go, a hunting we will go, heigh-ho the junk we’ll show for all to see and know”…er something like that. tee hee! You know I love a good thrift store haul, and this little bit below is from recent #trashure run. I’m going to attempt to turn it all into an upcycled photo holder. Here’s hoping!

There’s no doubt that we all have those projects that go sour and we’d rather not mention. Am I right? Ya know, the “just-donate-it-to-the-thrift-store-while-in-super-sleuth-mode” kinda project. I will be the first to confess I’ve given away projects I would have rather thrown in a lake. So, for some reason I felt bad for this set found at the thrift store. Hang with me as I turn them into a fun set of farmhouse kitchen canisters. yahoo!
When the second Tuesday of each month rolls around I get super excited to get started on my Trash to Treasure project. Can you blame me that I find it fun to work with ladies of the same heart for repurposing and recreating? I think not. tee hee. You’ll see their projects in a bit. Today I can’t wait to share with you a fun new creation using this wood I dug out of the clearance bin. Would you believe I’m going to turn it into a DIY antique store sign? Let the fun begin!
If you don’t already, I seriously suggest you check out the misfit clearance bin at your local home improvement store. I get some of the best project wood there. These pine tongue & groove carisiding boards were a complete score for me because (1) I needed it to patch my
Do you ever make a mistake with a project and want to just throw it out the door? Well, I do make mistakes and this time, particularly, I couldn’t throw it out. It’s wood! So instead of burning this wood round that gave me fits, I decided to turn it into something new. Check out how I created a DIY harvest time sign for the beginning of our autumn season.
Truth be told, I broke this thing when I was building a pedestal table out of a broken hall tree. You can read all about that HERE. What happened was when I was tapping the top on, I
