Oh happy day! It’s Reduce, Reuse, REFASHION time! That means is the last Tuesday of the month (gasp…already?!?). Sigh…well time flies when you’re having fun…er…in lockdown. haha.

For real tho, I’ve had these in my stash for a few years, yes, YEARS. I bought them when my 3rd daughter was little and had the intention to make play skirts and dresses for her. I blinked and now my

Clearance Bin with Geometric Shapes | prodigalpieces.com #prodigalpieces

It is no secret that I love all things wood. Wood is one of the most versatile mediums. Just think of how we enjoy trees for so many things – beauty for our eye to behold, structures we live in, furniture, provides heat, paper in many forms, carvings…I could go on. So, when I find these geometric shapes in a bin for 52Β’ instead of $3.98 I GRAB THEM ALL. hahahaha!!

It’s nothing new that organization keeps a body sane. There’s no hassle with clean-up and definitely saves time and can even keep your investments in a better state. What you’re looking at is a spot that has kinda been an eye-sore to me and my family for a couple of years. I’ve promised to show you our project when it was time to build, so today I’m sharing our DIY bike garden shed. (giveaway alert!)

Back in 2003 when we moved in, this spot held a small shed that would house trash cans. We never used it for that, but did store other items inside. After a few years it became dilapidated and I took it down. The wood from it became part of my

Botanical Print Serving Tray Upcycled

You know you’re a little quirky when even your kids are wondering what you’re going to do with THAT. haha! Yes, I’m a true sucker for the dated and forlorn. Especially when it looks like this checkerboard wall art. You read that right…wall art. Well, it isn’t going to stay wall art any longer, but rather become a botanical print serving tray. Do you see it?

Farmhouse Bathroom Storage ~ Upcycling Fun

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.

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?
