woohoo! It’s Tuesday–time for Talk of the Town! Fun features to inspire you to make and bake great stuff!
Oh, you will love this outdoor DIY buffet for grilling. Not a fan of outdoor grilling? That’s okay because this would also make an awesome potting table. Made with all reclaimed lumber and windows, this outdoor buffet comes in under budget for sure!
I have a really easy window project for you today. I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest for my fireplace. This is sort of like a fireplace screen to use when you’re not building fires. In my case, my fireplace is no longer a working fireplace.
Welcome back to a new week of Talk of the Town! First let’s take a look at what you may have missed from your party hosts!

Making spindle candlesticks out of bits and pieces, is not only easy-but a lot of fun! Using scraps of wood for bases, and parts of chairs, beds, and stairs . . . you will have more candlesticks than you need!
Using reclaimed wood from a pallet and metal rods from old cribs, I made some DIY beverage holders with score pegs for backyard lawn games. The beverage holders are roomy enough to hold drinks, phones and more.

I fixed an old wooden ladder up and painted it with my Finish Max. It makes the perfect outdoor plant stand for a garden or patio. I decorated it with some succulents and other plants. Topping it off with some inexpensive outdoor decor from local dollar stores. All in all, this makes for a very frugal project!
It’s time for our Dollar Store Design Squad projects! These clever dollar store hacks will leave you scratching your head wondering why you didn’t think of it! Five fun projects to inspire you to visit your local store and make something fun for your home, yard, or feet!
Thank you so much for your continued support of our weekly Talk of the Town party! The party has a new look. Isn’t it fabulous? So many great features for you week in and week out thanks to all the fabulous items shared each week!
I first started on this sewing machine cabinet turned into a drink station over a year ago. But I wasn’t quite happy with it, so I stored it in the garage and recently decided to revisit it. I have to say I love it now! I searched for years for the perfect insert to make a drink station, and I finally found the perfect tub!
Ohhh, how I love easy projects! That’s what Friday’s are all about here on My Repurposed Life. KISS Keep it simple, stupid. With a little TLC, paint and glaze, this side table makeover is complete! Bonus!! Remove (or open) the door and it converts to a pet bed, giving your furbaby peace of mind and security to keep them from being underfoot.
And… we’re back with a new edition of Talk of the Town. It’s #176 We’ve picked our features, are you one of them? We so much appreciate you sharing your recipes and projects each week.
I love a great crib repurpose, and I don’t like having an outdoor eyesore like a gas meter. While doing my backyard makeover, everything was looking so nice that I just had to cover the gas meter. It’s nearly impossible to cover all of the things that hang on your house, but if you give your guests “pretty” options, they’re less likely to notice the other necessities of being a homeowner.
This fun and easy repurposed chandelier project is perfect for your porch or patio. Solar lights have changed a lot, and easily charge in shady areas. Hang this from a tree, shepherd’s hook or your porch. It will make you smile every night as it adds a special ambiance to your outdoor space.
Yay! Talk of the Town 175 is live! Really great stuff to inspire you. Most of the weeks it’s so difficult for me to choose just one diy project and one yummy recipe. With the long weekend coming up, maybe you have time to work on something soon.
The great projects continue from the Backyard Camper Retreat. Today’s project is all about those Texas Lampposts. The tall 4×4 post sort of looked naked. To give them some omph, I added wooden bracket holders. Assemble the wooden bracket holders, then add an inexpensive metal bracket from the dollar store. Easy and oh so pretty!
I wanted to update my old outdoor cushions. Using pretty outdoor fabric, I made new outdoor cushion covers to match my new pillows for the patio. The envelope pillows were made with floral fabric and drop cloth material which meant I didn’t have to buy as much of the floral material.
woohoo! It’s Tuesday night, time for Talk of the Town #174! I can’t wait to see what y’all have to share this week. It’s been really crowded the last few weeks. We appreciate you patience a we’ve been working out how the new linky party code works. What will you make or bake?
One of the many diy projects done for the backyard makeover is the whiskey barrel lampposts. Having the tiny solar lights surround the fire pit is one of my favorite elements of the backyard. Originally I wanted larger bulbs but I have fallen in love with the tiny solar lights.
As a lover of wind chimes and one that doesn’t like to throw things away, of course I decided to save this old gal. Some wind chimes need a little more work than others, but I can’t imagine me ever throwing one out instead of repairing it. Do you have an old wind chime that needs some TLC?
Talk of the Town 173 is live! Yep, we have featured great recipes and creative DIY ideas. Two of the ideas feature succulents for those who just can get enough of ’em. 🙂
Do you have some outdoor projects that are in need of repair or freshening up? I’ve been busy doing some stuff around here. With the new backyard space, the rest of the yard is in need of tidying up. Y’all know how much I love my Finish Max paint sprayers, they are perfect for those outdoor projects in need of a fresh look.
Oh my gosh! I’m so excited to finally show you the reveal of my new backyard camper retreat. I’ve been enjoying time hanging out there all by myself–well Lulu Mae is with me. It’s so nice and quiet and nobody knows I’m there. I’ve even been watching t.v. in the evening. Yep, the camper has a hookup outside. I hope you enjoy the tour.
Are you ready for some inspiration? We are back with great features and more new link ups. So many projects and recipes, so little time! We’d love for you to share something someday soon.
I can’t remember when I was so excited about a bench. I’ve never made a bench quite like this one. Nope, it’s not a headboard bench, it’s make from a pallet. It truly is the sturdiest and most comfortable bench I’ve made to date. Yep, it’s going in my new backyard space. I hope you love it as much as I do.
A fun DIY challenge! Create a fun game that can either be played indoors or outdoors. I made a DIY Molkky lawn game. This isn’t a game I had ever heard of or played. I simply googled games and saw it, and knew that I would love to play it while camping. So, of course I painted it a pretty teal to match the decor of my camper. Where would you play?
It’s all about the backyard lately as I’m in the middle of an Outdoor Overhaul sponsored by my friends from Ryobi Outdoor Tools! My last update was all about the fire pit, and starting the paver patio. Most of this week’s update will revolve around a small back deck to disguise a set of concrete…
We’re back with another great edition of Talk of the Town. Fabulous features to inspire you with lots of new projects and recipes shared tonight throughout the week. Something for everyone!
What? You have an ugly plastic flower pot you don’t want to display on your deck or patio? I have the perfect solution for you for a great price. You can make many of these for under $20. If you’re only making a couple, you will have enough money left over for a quick lunch or a cup of coffee. Step by step directions, plus more great projects from my talented DIY blogger friends!
Maybe you’re one of those people who LOVE Spring cleaning, me not so much. I’d rather be outside enjoying the pretty Spring weather working on a project. But when it rains and you can’t get outside, why not make the best of it and get some easy indoor Spring cleaning done? Honestly, clean never smelled so good!
It’s week 2 of the Outdoor Overhaul! I’m sharing how far I’ve come. Most of the time was spent completing the DIY Fire Pit! It’s coming together slowly, but surely. Hop over to check out the details and be sure to tell me how your outdoor overhaul is coming along!

I’m participating in an Outdoor Overhaul with Ryobi Tools USA! I’m already a huge fan of their tools in my shop and regularly use their outdoor tools too. So, to say I’m thrilled about this project is an understatement. There are prizes! Today, I’ll show you the dreaded before of my sad, sad backyard. I’m hoping in about a month, you won’t even recognize the space!
Yay! It’s my favorite time, it’s time for the Thrift Store Decor Team to share their latest easy thrift store projects. This is such a popular item each month, so I know y’all love it! My friends never cease to amaze me with their creativity.
