CD Holder Update

Hello, my dear Friends! I usually post on Thursdays, but I took the day off yesterday since it was my birthday! My day started out a little something like this: Ignore the overgrown everything...all the rain we got from the recent Hurricane made things that hadn't grown in a month due to the intense heat this Summer, sprout like crazy, and the hubby just sprayed to kill the crabgrass before reseeding for Fall. Perfect timing, right? This surprise was all thanks to my sister! I … [Read more...]

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 pulled up to my very first sale of the day a few weeks ago and spotted a dresser that was smashed to pieces on the curb, along with these perfectly good drawers: The owners were happy to have me haul them away for them! 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? It's just a fancy name for old fence pickets I found on the side of the road lol.  As in this pile of pickets I found on the side of the road: Okay technically it was in a cul-de-sac in a neighborhood I was yard sale hopping in. See said yard sale in the back ground? "No thanks, I don't want to buy anything you are selling, but can I have this pile of trash?" Ha ha. This sounds a lot like the … [Read more...]

Headboard to Organizer

We're starting week #2 of my March Madness series and welcome! I can't believe it's been a whole week already! How many dated headboards have you passed by without a second thought? I've redone several headboards because they are perfect for repurposing! 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...]

Cabinet Door to Organizer

Today I'm sharing a super easy way to upcycle an old cabinet door. This project is easy and cheap!  And what's better than cheap and easy?  I mean, when you're talking DIY, of course.  :) A few weeks ago, my mom and I came upon a yard sale where the homeowner was selling a pantry cabinet for $10. It had been part of his built-in kitchen cabinets so it was configured a bit weird on one side. We really wanted the doors, but not the cabinet. So we sweet talked the guy into taking the doors … [Read more...]
