Do you ever have one of those projects that just seems like it keeps bugging you that it needs tweaking? Well, one of the best things about our home is the storage. Our home may be on the small side, but it is tweaked out for storage. A favorite feature is our mudroom. Today, I’m going to share (yet another) mudroom update. This is the third time around, but it’s high time we get it right!
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
What kinda fun makes your pulse quicken? I could list many things, but one of the most exciting times is when I get a minute to dig into my stash of #trashure and create. Can you blame me? Seeing someone’s trash or cast off junk become something new is exhilarating! I know I’m not alone. What you see below are my own kitchen drawer fronts that are about to become an upcycled plant stand. Oh yeah!!
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
Having a junk stash is rewarding many times over. It never fails I’ll need some scrap of wood or bit of metal for something and I always find what I need. I’ve been kinda anxious to refresh my stash, so I thought I would take on a project that would not only help me use up some of my #trashure, but also benefit some feathered friends too. Stick around and we’ll create some salvaged junk birdhouses together.
Don’t you just love a good challenge? My dad has brought me a few winners in the past, but this one was definitely one that made me laugh OUT LOUD. Why? Well…it’s so ugly!! I honestly felt bad for the forgotten babies, but it was time for an upcycled clock makeover, don’t you agree?
This is one of those, “Bless your heart” projects that are so far gone that it makes you wonder. Someone obviously put some time into this, but it has since been neglected. At this point I say, “Game ON!” and give it
Sometimes there are projects that you envision in your head the minute you spy something. Maybe that doesn’t always happen, but when it does it is fantastically fun to get it done. That’s what happened to me when I spied this beauty below.. Did I need a headboard…no. Did I need another project…not really. But…did I want to take this vintage gem and create a French Provincial headboard bench…YES!
It’s that time again! The second Tuesday of each month some of my blogger friends and I get together to present to you our latest Trash to Treasure makeovers. It’s certainly one of my favorite times and hope it is for you too! Today’s project is this handmade luggage I found during our spring city cleanup. I’ve been aching to turn it into the vision I had of a Mid Century nightstand. I can’t wait!!
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.
