When a blogging friend sent me one of her wood project kits, I decided to put my own stamp of personality on it and dress it up with three of my favorite crafty methods: paint, stencils, and decoupage!
If you're anything like me with an abundance of great intentions in July...and "Oh, no! It's only 2 weeks until Christmas!" going on now, don't despair...here's a super quick wreath project that will deck your halls in just 15 minutes!
One of my Thrift Shopping Hacks - No Regrets - was the inspiration for this simple and easy repurposed project. While shopping I saw a bronze tissue box cover and a string of chunky beads that caught my eye, so I brought them home and designed this festive planter.
Likely the most thrilling part of thrift shopping is being inspired to totally transform a piece into something different and better.I adore a great repurposed project because when it comes to stretching those creative muscles and making something different, unexpected, and unique, a repurposed project just can’t be beat!So when I found a set of wooden napkin rings at the thrift store, I knew a new repurposed project was happening soon.
Two years later, and I'm still working my way through a stack of ceramic tiles I found in our garden shed, left behind by the previous owners. After a few longer projects, I decided it was time for a quick one!
This project was nothing but fun!For over a year I've wanted to DIY my own unique tea chest, and when I found a second wine box at my favorite thrift store, it was game on!
A few months ago I found a cute ceramic and iron trivet at my favorite thrift store. I didn't know right away how I'd use it, but it fit my list of "great find criteria", so it came home with me for just $4. A few weeks ago I finally decided what to do with it!
One of my thrift shopping ninja hacks is to shop for pieces and parts. I love putting the unexpected together to come up with something new. So when I landed a couple of separate pieces on one of my latest jaunts, that's exactly what I did with them.
