Spring is in the air! When this time of year comes around I’m eager to greet the season with some DIY fun. What better than to go on a #trashure hunt adventure and create a DIY spring centerpiece from thrifted finds…right? Here is what I picked and am excited to share with you. (giveaway alert!)
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?
Happy dance! Today is Trash to Treasure Tuesday – where my blogger friends and I are creating DIY goodness to inspire you. You’ll see their projects in a bit, but for now take a peek at this gem below. This vintage bed tray still has function, but oh how it lacks in fun. Right?!?
It’s made of wood and that’s about all it’s got going for it. Check out the geese…
They look angry! hahaha!! It appears they are tearing off the bow on the apple. It made me LOL in the thrift store! Okay…sorry…not sorry. Too funny to not point that out.
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? 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
Last, but not least, the third part of my flashback 80’s heart cut-out makeover trilogy is today. Yay! First, I redid a wooden bin seen HERE. Second, I redid an vintage bread box in this post. Today, is all about this beauty about to become a farmhouse laundry bin.
This ol’ beauty has a whole lotta potential. Do you see it? It may be lacking in spunk, but I’ll fix that in jiffy. tee hee!
Oh, what sweet bliss it is to walk into a thrift store not knowing what you’ll find, and walk out with a piece of history at your side. My kids and I went to get some play clothes and I walked out with more than I came for. BIG SURPRISE, right? What you see below is a giddy me perched on top of an antique dressing table about to become a desk.
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!
