    Do you own something already that you would like to repurpose?

    Look for a little step stool (GoodWill?). You can paint, stencil, or use a blow torch to it. LOL

    I'd hit up local thrift stores, flea markets, etc. Maybe an old dining room chair? Something sturdy with good bones. Paint the wood, and reupholster the seat in a fun fabric. You can buy small jars of chalk paint at the craft store. Just browse here and on Pinterest for the general idea.

    Well that sounds fun! I would start with something you already have that isn't valuable (dollar wise or sentimental) and see how it turns out. Either that or shop the thrift stores for something inexpensive and perhaps small. Maybe a side table, nightstand, or a wood step stool are great projects to start with.

    I think picture frames are an easy, fun way to try different products and techniques.They are pretty inexpensive at the thrift stores, if you don't have any. And everyone can use them!

    This is a fun up cycle of a collage frame.

    Thanks to all that responded, all ideas and or advice are on target & realistic. Life has been very busy so I haven't been very productive with any projects.
