Kitchen Hutch Buffet from a Repurposed Desk

MyRepurposedLife-modified-kitchen-hutch-desk.jpg

You may remember this desk and hutch. I’ve already shown it to you in the post Recent Finds Leann’s Curb Finds, and then I showed you the details of how I cut it down to size in the post DIY Desk/Hutch Modification .   Top left—on the curb. Top right—cutting the desk with my sawzall. Bottom left—if you look closely you’ll see that it’s cut all the way around the perimeter. Bottom right—the new smaller version of the desk with shelves also cut down to size. Although this … [Read more...]

Hey everyone, it's Mindi again from MyLove2Create!

Recent Finds Winter 2015

watering-can.jpg

  Because of my cut the cord clutter post, I’m doing my recent finds today instead of yesterday. I went thrifting with my friend Cathy last week, and I got some great deals.   These doors had to go between the seats, and almost conked me on the head when they shifted.  I should have slanted them to the other side.    I loved this watering can.  It was the most expensive thing I bought at $5.  (My limit)   There was a booth that had several hollow … [Read more...]

Cord Clutter solved with Repurposed Nightstands

My-Repurposed-Life-repurposed-nightstands-small-chest.jpg

It’s a new year, and many of us resolve to make some changes.  I always have good intentions, and I’m hoping that this year my attempts to declutter will be better.   I’ve done great in the last few years at not bringing too much stuff into the house.  I’m not a big shopper, but I also struggle with letting things go. When Porch.com approached me about doing a project for their  Cheers For Change campaign, there were a few options that I looked at.  You know I rarely keep my project … [Read more...]

Large Coat Rack Shelf

MyRepurposedLife-green-bathroom-shelf-towel-rack.jpg

    Last week while I was looking for a quick and easy project that I could work on in the basement shop I saw this over sized crown molding  I recently picked up at the Peddler’s Mall. I thought it would be perfect for a large coat rack shelf.   I found  two 1x10’s in my scrap pile.   Checking to see if I like the crown molding I chose.   I cut the crown molding ends on my miter saw.   Here I’m doing a dry fit while holding everything … [Read more...]
