So many times I get asked how I am able to decorate on a tiny budget. Well, the answer lies in making use of what I have or what is affordable. Shopping your home is definitely the easiest, most economical way to change up your decor. Let’s pretend today that you already own this Americana wall art below, but you want a more modern look. It’s about to become a DIY welcome sign coat rack. Hang with me now…
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!
If you know me by now, you know I’m a sucker for the wood section of the thrift store. Potential abounds and so do the 80’s heart cut-outs! haha! Last time, I showed you a pile of projects I was attempting to update. Today is all about that bread box. It’s about to become an upcycled charging station. Oh yeah!
To catch you up to speed, here is the pile in question. We have a laundry bin, a side table bin, and a bread bin. Notice the trend here? If you missed what I did with the side table bin, you can see the
It’s Furniture Fixer Uppers time! This is the day each month my gal friends and I set aside to create furniture projects to inspire you. You’ll see what they created in a bit. Me…well, I am on an 80’s “heart” journey to show you how these pieces that are plentiful at thrift stores and garage sales can be made new. One of these below is about to become a kid’s storage bench.
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!
The holiday season is definitely fun for letting our creative side run wild. I love to get my six kids involved in gift making and creating. They all agreed they wanted to inspire you and your kids to get your craft on too. Today we are going to to show you how you can create an upcycled Christmas cupboard door project for any age. We’re all about inspiring you to get have some DIY fun. Join me and my gang for a cupboard adventure!
What you see above is a selection of cupboard doors that my kids picked out from my stash below. Did you read the story about how I acquired that pile o’ goodness? If not, you can get up to speed HERE.
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
