I’m so giddy about this project! I love how my repurposed lamp plant stands turned out. This is a fairly easy project if you have enough junk in your stash. I save lamp parts when I do projects, so I had extra stuff. I recommend you dedicate a place to hold onto them as well. 🙂

I’m sharing some tv tables that I updated for the camper. Space is very limited in my Vintage Cruiser so I have to have items that are dual purpose and easy to store. The folding tv tables are perfect for this very reason. They can be used indoors or outdoors and easily fold away for storage and transporting.
I have an oh so easy project for you! It’s a mirror frame chalkboard. The mirror was broken, but the frame was perfect to make into a chalkboard. I even used the masonite board that helped hold the mirror in place. Spray paint, and chalkboard paint sprayed with my Finish Max and this project was finished in record time! Oh, bonus! I added a Chalk Couture transfer to take it to the next level.

I’ve had this child bench done for a couple of months. It’s a fairly simple toddler sized bench made out of a reclaimed bed. It’s actually the foot board of a bed. Because the bed posts sit closer to the ground, it was perfect for using to make a small bench for a child. A…
