How to make a baseball bat grow chart for those parents that are huge baseball fans. Chances are if a child is young enough to need a grow chart he or she probably isn’t a big fan yet. Why wait? This fun growth chart is the perfect way to keep up with growth spurts. Dated baseball stickers round out this project to make it last for years!
I love reclaimed wood projects. Mostly I use weathered fencing, but I recently got some great blue pallet wood. So for this month’s power tool challenge I decided to make a printable pallet frame. It’s a fun printable that my friend Jocie made for me. I have never really posted a printable on this site,…
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…
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.
A free full length mirror gets a makeover with some rustic picture frame molding. Add some reclaimed wood for the perfect rustic framed full length mirror. The mirror had been in my way for months, happy to have it completed and out of the shop!

Do you ever get an idea in your head and you want it done YESTERDAY? That’s the way things go around here. Once I decide to do a project, I can’t wait. This was one of those projects. Suddenly I realized I wanted a standing laptop table and I got right to work. A couple of weeks later and I’m loving it. Details on the blog.
A trio of gray glazed shelves are made from one odd piece of wooden trim. Adding wood for the shelves and hooks make the large one perfect for any room. I’d love to know your thoughts on what configuration the trio should be displayed.
A free, damaged headboard gets a new chance after a little sawing and painting. I rarely throw anything away or turn down free stuff from neighbors. This was one of those cases where I said yes, but was wondering what I was going to do with this damaged particle board headboard.
Here’s a redo of a redo! It doesn’t happen often, but this is an old project I did in 2009, and now I’ve updated it and gave it a new look. It was a nightstand, then a t.v. stand, now it’s a small chest great for a guest room OR a coffee station in a small kitchen.
I picked up a $5 vintage drawer and with a scrap piece of wood, paint and glaze, it’s now ideal for a small wall shelf, or a shelf to rest on a console or library table. I found a new glaze and I’m loving it so much, I can’t stop using it.
A $5 chippy chair planter? Yep, this project was so easy, and I love how it looks. The chippy chair got a quick white wash paint makeover and it was ready to display my pretty Boston fern. Hop over to see more chair planter ideas.
I can be such a procrastinator. I have had this drawer in one place or another for years. I painted it from black to white last year, but still didn’t do anything but move it around the garage. Finally I finished it. You’ll get the details on this and see many more repurposed drawer ideas to inspire you when you hop over.
Originally priced at $20 this whiskey barrel lid was a steal at $4. It needed some TLC, repairs and sealing. Now it makes a real statement piece for a home bar or the bourbon lover. The brand is Stitzel Weller, poured right here in Louisville, KY back in 1961.
I found a $1 antique oval picture frame at Vendors’ Village (where my booth is located). It was in rough shape, but I knew it was worth a buck. It got put aside until I finished my latest hall tree and I was wishing I had the perfect wreath to hang on it. I didn’t, so I redid the oval frame into a chalkboard instead. I hope you learn something from this short tutorial.
This is it! The last piece of the free furniture from my neighbor! The headboard has been repurposed into a sign for my kitchen! I love, love, love how it turned out. I hope you do to.
Today’s project is very versatile—it can be used as a coffee table or bench indoors or out! It’s easy to make and for me it was relatively free of any cost, just a lot of labor hauling the reclaimed wood and building the table. Look at all of that wonderfully weathered beautiful reclaimed wood! I…
I have a fun and easy repurposed furniture bedpost wall shelf project to share with you today using bed posts from another headboard project I made. We all know how much I love cutting up furniture. Whenever I cut legs off of headboards I always save them for other projects and this project was fun…
This is a fairly simple project turning an old headboard or foot board into a coat rack or coffee cup rack with a chalkboard. Although this set of bunk beds was marked $9.99, I actually got it at Vendors’ Village for $5.00. *this post contains affiliate links at no extra cost to you* I propped…
I have another repurposed chair project, a chair back wall shelf made from my $2 thrift store chair. I’ve already made a chair seat wall shelf out of this chair. Not bad to get two projects out of one $2 chair, eh?I have a lot of chairs, but even so, I couldn’t pass up this…
