15 Ordinary Items Repurposed

15 Ordinary Items Repurposed 1

Today I'm digging through my archives to bring you 15 ordinary items that I gave an entirely new life to.  You might never look at these ordinary items the same way again! 1. This was the drawer to the awkward "hump" in our babies' changing table. When we cut the hump off, this was left: I turned it into a mini bookcase to hold my son's books: Fun Drawer Upcycle 2. I found this painting at a yard sale for $2: I replaced the painting with chicken wire and added fresh paint to … [Read more...]

Teapot Garden Feature

How to Make this Whimsical Teapot Garden Feature

If you asked me what project I receive the most emails about, I would say hands down, my Sew Easy Outdoor Cushion Covers tutorial. People are so excited that they can cover their worn out cushions for a fraction of the cost of new ones and I love to hear all the positive feedback. I even receive pictures! But the second project I get the most emails about is not even something I created. Know what it is? This: I shared it as part of my Front  Yard Garden Tour last summer, and I have had … [Read more...]

How to Add Glass to Cabinet Doors

How to Add Glass to Cabinet Doors

  Hi friends! I recently shared my kitchen makeover, and I had several requests to share how I replaced the raised panels on my kitchen cabinets with glass. Adding glass to just one set of cabinets had the biggest impact in my kitchen. This project was a lot easier than I expected, but I have to admit that cutting out those panels requires a little bit of guts.  Although I did mine a little differently in the end, I got my courage from Kristin from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia. … [Read more...]

Mini Drop Cloth Rosette Stool Makeover {a $5 Yard Sale Find}

Drop Cloth Rosette Trimmed Stool

I have a fun makeover for you today! Seems like it's been a while since I shared a makeover, probably because I've been knee-deep in my kitchen redo for what seems like forever! I found this little stool at a yard sale for $5 a couple of weeks ago: I liked the chair height of it and of course, the price tag.  It was a bit beat up though, and not in a "Its got tons of character" sort of way... So I immediately came up with the perfect plan in my mind... You know how sometimes … [Read more...]

How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets (A Step-by-Step Guide)

If you're in the market to paint your kitchen cabinets, you have come to the right place! I am sharing every single solitary step to a brand new space! While the actual priming and painting only took three days (can you say marathon painting?), reviving your kitchen cabinets will also require at least one solid day for prep, and at least one additional day to put everything back together. I took all day Friday to prep, primed and painted Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, and put everything back … [Read more...]

“Bar Chair” Redo for my New Kitchen

Grain Sack Inspired Bar Chair Makeover

It's not always easy coming up with a name for a new post, especially when you have no idea what a piece of furniture you just made over is called!  Maybe you know? Is it a bar stool? Not really...is it a chair? kind of. It's a chair at bar stool height...bar chair? Okay now that we have that out of the way, it seems like my kitchen is taking longer than expected. but it's really just small details that are dragging on. The main stuff is done! I had family in town this week for my nephew's … [Read more...]

Patriotic Drop Cloth Pillow

Patriotic pillow from drop cloth and a $1.99 flag

A few of my blog friends decided to get together to share something patriotic in honor of 4th of July just around the corner.  I was excited to join in the fun, but didn't want to spend very much. I immediately thought of my crazy stash of drop cloth.  My out-of-pocket for this project was $1.99 for one American flag. Those are my kind of projects! Here's my contribution to this tour:   Here's what I used to get started:  (Thanks to my dear reader, Terrie for pointing out … [Read more...]
