For this month’s Thrift Store Decor Team challenge I decided to go with something for the holidays. This simple jelly jar centerpiece was fun and easy to put together using a small drawer and items from the dollar store. Be sure to check out the other projects from my friends.
You guys! I’m so excited to share these easy scrap molding signs with you! Sometimes projects are accidental around My Repurposed Life! While cleaning the garage out, I found a couple of small pieces of molding that I just couldn’t get rid of. I don’t know what kind of molding this is. I don’t think…
I have a fun repurposed porch post coat rack project to share with you today! It was a last minute Glendale project, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I used my new favorite paint technique. I just can’t stop using that glaze! I hope you love it as much as I do. It was popular in the booth last weekend at the craft show.
A pallet cut in half makes the perfect pallet coffee cup rack. I used one of my favorite sayings–But First. Coffee stenciled in black on the weathered oak stained pallet. Eleven single hooks allow a variety of your best coffee cups to be displayed above your coffee station.

I’ve been wanting to make a ONE pallet project. This month’s Power Tool Challenge was the perfect opportunity to do so. I made an easy potting table out of a wooden pallet I got from a neighbor. This is a fairly easy project with minimal cuts.

It’s time for this month’s Thrift Store Decor project, a jewelry organizer to hold necklaces. I made two of these organizers out of old table leaf trim pieces left over from another project. Do you remember the console table? Lots of other great ideas from my friends to inspire you to give thrift store items a new life.
I’m always looking for inspiration for projects, everywhere I go. On my daily walks with Lulu Mae I pass a neighbor’s house and have long admired a wooden slat bench on their porch. I thought for a long time that I would make one out of a couple of chairs. BUT! Then I got those great reclaimed wooden slats from a neighbor . . .
I got some free tables with metal legs. They were by a dumpster I passed while running errands. There were a LOT of tables, but I only took eight of them. Now I wish I had taken all of them. The problem was how much room they were taking up in the truck, and where I would store them once I brought them home. I worked that out by dismantling them. If only I had brought more of them home. Here is a trio of diy side tables I made with some of the metal table legs.
I actually started this project in 2009! This vertical coat rack is the perfect solution for tight spaces. Use it in the bathroom for towels, by the front door for hats and coats. Hang it low for kids coats and hats.
Easy tutorial showing you how to make pretty pushpins out of yard sale vintage jewelry. Have some of granny’s old jewelry? Get it out of storage and keep it out in the open – give it a new purpose by adding thumb tacks. Of course, fine jewelry should never be repurposed this way, just old costume jewelry.
A FREE old chair is the perfect furniture to repurpose. This chair side table is great for outdoors by my drop cloth hammock or porch swing. I gave it a quick whitewash because I didn’t want it to look too new. I did hit a few glitches and had to call in a favor from a neighbor. I still get stumped and challenged on even some easy projects.
