Upcycled Potting Station/Art Desk

A few weeks ago while junking I came across this vintage school desk just discarded on the side of the road. I knew I had to save it, but I had no idea it was going to turn into this gem!

What Do You Do With Scrap Wood, Build a Reindeer Of Course!

Hands down my favorite Christmas decoration to date! The reindeer was inspired by the urge to have one on my porch and not wanting to pay the horrific prices everywhere I looked. Plus I am pretty sure it looks way better than the see through light up ones

Give That Crate a Face Lift!

Do you ever look at a product and just know it is screaming to be turned into something else? This little crate I found at the thrift store was one of those! Some wood, wax and rusty wire turned him into something beyond adorable!

Refurbished Thrift Store Chair #itcentsational

Yard sales and thrift stores are my favorite places in the world. Last summer I found this chair that was in rough shape, but I knew it had potential. I joined the challenge, grabbed my chalk paint, and got to work!

Don't Give Up Hope On Old Junk

A while back my grandparents gave me this hunk of junk. They know better than to throw things away when they have me around to fix them and refurbish them...or just create something entirely new with them like I do in my shop.
Anyway, this side table has been my Grandfathers night stand for as long as I can remember. It has been chewed up and spit out and was in horrible condition. The edges were all chipped and the particle board was showing and looked like cotton coming out in places. I am guessing it got wet from my Grandfathers breathing machine.
But I gladly took it back to my shop. Then I let it sit there for a while just pondering what I was going to do to it. I really don't like fake wood, but it was still salvageable so I stopped putting it off and got to work.

DIY Heart String Art and EPIC FAIL

I have been seeing these string art creations all over blog land and I knew I had to make one, but I learned a valuable lesson! In the end using the string, nails, upcycled board (it came from a house that was built in the 1800's and was a shelf in the closet!) and glass glitter turned out beautiful! I am even giving it away on my blog!! Make sure you stop by and enter to win!
