Things do not always go smoothly. Not even for me! I’ve been doing the junkin’ thing for many, many years. I’ve often said color can make or break a project. This is one of those cases. I almost gave up on this sweet repurposed garden bench. I’ll take you through the steps of how it went wrong before I finally got it right.
I have an easy craft project to share with you! How to decoupage a watering can using pretty floral napkins. This easy craft can be done in just a couple of hours. Do more than one to make a set. Great for displaying cut flowers indoors.
After seeing a picture of a small cabinet hanging on the wall in a magazine, I realized that it would be easy to recreate using a couple of repurposed drawers. I find my inspiration by looking at manufactured pieces and then ask myself what can I make that from?
Collecting glassware can be addictive! But, it’s a lot of fun and can be very rewarding when you have a lot of unique pieces to choose from when you make your repurposed glass totems. It really is a great way to upcycle all those glass vases you may already have on hand.
How to make an outdoor coffee table using a repurposed fire pit. Pallet boards were the perfect addition to this metal frame to make this bright and colorful coffee table/ottoman for my backyard.
I have a super collection of repurposed drawer projects for you. Many of them are so easy, you can be done in an hour or so. I find drawers are easily orphaned–drawers from kitchens, dressers and more! What kind of drawer do you have laying around?
Can you take another headboard project? How about a sweet toy box bench made from the end of a daybed? I have vowed to clear out my stash instead of dragging more stuff home. These beds have been around for 3 1/2 years. One down and one to go. So let me know if you have a suggestion for the other daybed piece.
You know I love any and all solar light ideas! Repurposed Floor Lamps as Solar Lights are so easy to do. Sometimes they last long enough that they get a makeover on a makeover! That’s what this month’s Thrift Store Decor project is about. I repainted the floor lamp base and the solar light to spruce up the backyard camper retreat.
It’s here! The second project from that over sized coffee table. I called the first one a Kid’s Bench with Storage, but I think this one would be perfect for a TV stand. Although they look the same, I actually supported the second project differently than the first one. I can’t wait to hear which one you like best!
Today’s easy project will have you looking around to see what you have to make it! I used an old lamp base and a wooden platter to make this pedestal platter project. Easy to spray paint and be done in record time!

I picked up a brass vanity light at the ReStore in Nashville while visiting my grandson a few weeks ago. I got a great deal on it and decided to paint it and repurpose for the backyard camper retreat. I will be adding solar lights, but so far I’m not loving how it’s turning out.
