$2 Thrift Store Frame Repurposed

Hello amazing Friends!! Thank you for all the positive feedback on my DIY Rolling Umbrella Base on Tuesday! It is working out great so far! Today I've got a fun little upcycle for ya'll. I shared a peek of today's project on Tuesday...this $2 thrift store frame and these spindles: The frame was small but nice and deep, perfect for a little tray!   I had painted the frame last week, but was undecided on what I would use as the bottom of my new tray. Then on Saturday, … [Read more...]

DIY Teapot Garden Feature

Happy Thursday, amazing Friends!! I might be sitting back relaxing on a beach somewhere today, but I wouldn't miss giving you your biweekly dose of creative inspiration! I pulled this project out of my archives because it is THE perfect Mother's Day gift! That is if she has an outdoor space. Several years ago I bought a cute teapot garden feature at a craft market. I shared a photo of it as part of my Front  Yard Garden Tour that year,  and had countless requests for the tutorial. After … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Inbox Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! On Tuesday I shared a peek at today's project. Apparently there are a lot of these floating around out there because several of you mentioned you had one too! I'm talking about this wooden inbox I scored at the thrift store for $2.25 several months ago: Anything that is made of wood catches my eye when I'm thrifting since I know paint can work wonders, and as soon as I saw this on the shelf, I knew just what it could be. Painting it and adding handles turned … [Read more...]

Repurposed Skis

Can I tell y'all how excited I am that it's Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday?? Amazing Friends, today I have actual trash to share which is even better! So y'all know how I moved into a new neighborhood, right? These nice people don't really know how I like to pick through their trash that they leave on the curb, in search of potential treasures...except now they probably do. It's all thanks to these perfectly good skis: I saw that a POD was being delivered to the vacant house next door, and … [Read more...]

Mirror turned Chalkboard

Hello amazing friends! I have another makeover to share with ya'll from this pile of goodies I picked up last Saturday: It's this mirror I scored for $4.98: If you missed what I did with the baskets, see them HERE. I had passed it up twice before since the mirror in it was so heavy. Then when I saw it last Saturday, it had been marked down again and it occurred to me that it would make a fantastic chalkboard! Don't you think? This wall is in our kitchen and I knew I … [Read more...]

Upcycled Drawer

Hello Amazing Friends! I'm back today sharing the makeover of a piece that has been in my garage for at least two years. I'm starting to sound like a broken record, right? I have been so good about working through my stash, and I am down to just a couple of furniture pieces, a bin of odds and ends, and this stack of goodies I pulled out from the depths during the big purge: That drawer is what is up for a makeover today! It came from a drop leaf table I found on Craig's List. One of … [Read more...]

Repurposed Picture Frames

Hey there Sweet Friends! Well I am glad to say that I survived another annual neighborhood yard sale! Yard sales sure are a lot of work, but if you prepare well, the payoff is worth it. And we really lucked out in the weather department. It was pouring all day on Friday, but the skies cleared overnight and we had a mostly sunny day until around three when the clouds came rolling back in with a few showers. That was perfect timing! Today is not just any ordinary Tuesday, it's … [Read more...]

15+ Ordinary Items Repurposed

Do you love a good repurpose like I do? I seriously love to see things brought back to life in new ways. Hey there, amazing Friends! Today I am rounding up 15+ ordinary items that I have repurposed in a new way. It's always fun to look back, and since I have been working my little DIY fingers to the bone outside on less fun/more important projects, AND I'm getting ready for our big annual neighborhood yard sale that is happening this weekend, I thought this was a great time to dust off some … [Read more...]

Window Shadow Box

Hello lovely Friends! Today I'm back with my Décor Enthusiast girls! We usually share something décor-related as a monthly challenge, and this month we are sharing how we use windows in our décor and window projects! I have about 8 old windows that I picked up for supa cheap at a yard sale a couple of years ago so I chose to make something with one of them for this month's challenge! I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I use. I started with this smallish window … [Read more...]

DIY Striped Sweater Pumpkins

Hey there, amazing Friends! Today I'm hanging out with some very talented ladies from bHome sharing what we love about Fall. Do you know what I really love about Fall, besides the cooler weather? I love football, chili, and Halloween! I'm pretty sure you don't want to hear about football...ok maybe just one little teeny tiny video. Try and guess which kiddo is mine: I thought it was hilarious. My hubby, the coach, not so much! I don't share recipes here, but I see a big crockpot … [Read more...]
