Curbside Drawer to Back-to-School Organizer

Hello Friends! I'm sharing another curbside find turned into something useful (and pretty) today! To be honest, I rarely actually find things curbside, except when I'm yard saling.

I was thinking at the very least I could salvage the hardware. Then when my insanely … [Read more...]

Reclaimed Wood Organizer

By now you know when I say "reclaimed wood" I'm not talking about century old barn wood right?

Here is the $5 beauty my son and I picked up a couple of weeks ago at the thrift store: I'm sure it was only $5 because it had no tag and the cashier was put on the spot. It's getting harder and harder to find a great deal at thrift … [Read more...]

What to do with that Old Headboard

Hello, beautiful Friends!  Today I am sharing what I did with an old headboard I found at a yard sale for a mere $5.  My car was already packed, but I squeezed her in! Here she is as I found her: And here is how I repurposed her: Aint she perty now??
