I’ve had this old mirror sitting in my studio for I don’t know how long! It once was a dresser mirror, which I removed as it was all crazed and converted the frame part into a chalkboard for my market stall. It’s great to let people know that I do furniture makeovers and also hold painting classes. […]
When this stool first came to me, it was in need of a fresh coat of paint and some lovin! It was scuffed badly and looked like it had been very well loved before landing in my car! My first initial instinct was to paint it white and then stencil something onto the top. If […]
Welcome to Waste Not Wednesday-4! I can’t wait to see what you have been up to this week! I have been so blown away by the cleverness of all the projects that have been linked up each week. So much inspiration and I hope in turn they have inspired you. Things are beginning to get super […]
I have a confession to make! If you saw my recent posts on Sisal Rope Love Sign and 10 Minute Twig Tree, I was a part of a Simple Daily DIY Challenge. This involved a very talented group of ladies getting together and making projects of things that you generally have around the home. Well, it […]
A little while back now, I made my Farmhouse Drawer Caddy out of a disappointing find at an online garage sale. But rather than throwing her to the kerb, I decided to try and salvage some of her sweet features. The last piece left was her sweet mirror! So here began my Dresser Mirror Hook project.
Welcome to Waste Not Wednesday-3! So glad you could stop by and join us and share with us what you have been up to! We have really enjoyed how our little party is growing each week and appreciate your participation. We just ask one small favour that you please only link up with things that […]
I’ve been getting a bit of feedback lately that not many people know that I have an online shop! So I thought it would be a bit of fun to put together 5 Farmhouse Favourites from my shop! I have had my shop for about 18 years selling my wares on and off as time […]
I have joined up with a really awesome group of clever ladies on Facebook called the Simple Daily DIY Group! The idea behind the group is to create a simple project that takes around 10 minutes. Today’s challenge is to make something out of Twigs and Sticks! This has led me to my 10 Minute Twig Tree!
I have been holding onto this heart sign for EVER! It use to hang in my son’s room when he was little. The teddy that was on the bottom has fallen off over time and a couple of the buttons have fallen off. I just couldn’t bring myself to throw it out! I know it’s dated and all that […]
Who else had a rocking horse growing up? My brother and I had a red one and boy did we travel some miles (well pretend miles) with lots of giggles along the way! So when this guy became available at a local online Garage sale, I was instantly taken back to these fun times with […]
Welcome to our very first Waste Not Wednesday #1 Party! We have joined together to share our love for all things re purposed and up cycled. Each week we will be featuring our favorites and look forward to seeing what you have been up to each week!
Like with most things that I come across they are dated and looking a little sad and worn. Part of the joy of doing what I do is being able to take these pieces and give them a nice fresh new look so that they can then be used again. With that said I’m sharing how […]
Sharing a super quick idea on how to give dated Thrift Store Napkin Rings a fresh new look. I recently found a set of wooden Napkin Rings at my local Thrift Store and I saw some potential in them and that they could once again be used as what they once were!
