Revamp New Life Into Old Quirky Signs

I found these 3 old "seed" signs at Goodwill. They were probably cute in their time, but their time has come to an end. I loved the wood and knew I could re-purpose them into something great. And i did ~!

Drab Mirror to FAB Lace Mirror!

I took this old drab mirror, and turned it into a Fabulous Lace Overlay frame. Items needed: Krylon Metallic Spray Paint, Frame, Lace and tape. I had everything on hand so this updo was FREE $$

Children's Bench Goes Disney.

I was given this cute childrens bench to makeover. It didn't take me long to realize what I wanted to do with it. I mean c'mon, tell me the top sides don't look like Mouse ears!

Serving Tray Gets BIG Redo...

I found this tray at Goodwill. It was stained and not attractive, but big and beautiful at the same time. I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do with it.

When a Washboard Becomes a Piece of ART

I bought this old washboard, from the 1930's at a local shop. The "branding" on it was wore off, so I knew it wasn't going to be a collector's item and could repurpose it. And I LOVE repurposing! So here you go, it ended up with 2 sides to it for change of decor, and 2 ways to use it as well.

redo old cabinet fronts into wonderful signs

Redo Old Cabinet Fronts Into Wonderful Signs.

I found some old cabinet fronts at a rehab store. I loved the way they already looked like a FRAME around the edges, so knew exactly what I was going to do. Make some signs! A win win because I don't have to frame them on my own. EDIT: ADDED ANOTHER SIGN I DID STRAIGHT ON WOOD, No Paint Beforehand. Added to the bottom of the pictures.

Rusty Truck With Tree Brings Back VINTAGE LOOK.

Decided to try a couple of things with this project. Stencil, paint, use different textures and light it up. I'm ecstatic with the outcome, as vintage look is so popular right now.

Sister Birthday Gifts Are Special.

I wanted to do something special for my sisters 60th birthday, so I put together a memory jar for her. This is great and pretty simple to make and it's great to think back on the years. And it is another gift to have her open and the two of us to laugh and reminisce. Here's how I created it!

Halloween Canvas Wall Art

I am really expanding on my spray painted Halloween board idea I posted previously. It was so much fun to do and I came up with so many additional ideas. Here's another one I did using plastic arms and webs from Dollar Tree.
