Don't throw it out, "Redoux" it is my motto. Saving tired old furniture bound for the dump or thrift store and giving it a brand new look. Endless energy, finding humor in everyday life. Always a smile on my face and it is sincerely from the heart. Life is too short to not enjoy it.
I've got hearts on the mind. Not just because the day of lovers is impending, but because they are a part of my own home decor year-round.
I've loved and collected hearts in some form or the other since I was a young girl. And in the coming weeks I'm going to be searching for some of the best recycled, repurposed, and upcycled hearts to inspire you to re.Create for Valentine's Day.
First up, reclaimed and scrap wood! And you'll find all the sources and links at the original blog post below.
Remodeling a old bathroom... very OLD ;-). Was in the process of demo and Pulled the drawer front off. I am always looking for a way to re-use what I have and thought this would make a
cute wall hanging for jewelry, pretty scarves or dried flowers. First I applied a coat of new stain to deepen the base color. Whitewashed with some old white flat wall paint, and then distressed with my best friend "electric sander". Gave it some character and then stained again. Finished it off with 2 coats of paste wax. I also had some old knobs from another project, but they were a bright copper color. So gave them a really good sanding with very course sandpaper, applied the white paint sanded that a bit, dab of stain and then a spray of polyurethane to seal. Drilled holes and installed them into the board. I am really pleased how this turned out! I love when something beautiful comes out of the "destined for dumpster" pile ;-)
