Revamped Ceiling Fan Blades, Farmhouse-Style

Revamped Ceiling Fan Blades, Farmhouse-Style

Mr. Seasongoods and I are slowly (and I mean SLOWLY) giving our home office a face lift. The first order of business was replacing the outdated squeaky ceiling fan…and when we did so, I, OF COURSE, saved the ceiling fan blades for a project. I had a farmhouse-style idea that seemed a little crazy…but had a lot of potential.Read more ›

Hudson’s Bay Inspired Winter Décor

Hudson’s Bay Inspired Winter Décor

The colorful stripes of a Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket are burned into my childhood memory, thanks to a great-uncle in Canada. He had gifted one to my parents as a wedding gift, and it came in awfully handy during the classic Chicago winters of my childhood. And while the blanket itself is long gone, I was able to purchase an amazing tote bag using one that had been repurposed! Read more ›

Wall of Wisdom: Vintage Motto Sampler Gallery

Wall of Wisdom: Vintage Motto Sampler Gallery

So…obviously, this isn’t exactly a project, per se. But it’s an idea that has been slumbering in my mind for a long time now, and I finally set aside the time to put it together. It all started with a large open wall in our bedroom…and a vintage motto sampler…that led to another sampler…and another sampler after that.Read more ›

Fake It ‘Til You Make… Grain Sack Sachets

Fake It ‘Til You Make… Grain Sack Sachets

Vintage French grain sacks are SO desirable…and therefore pricey if you’re lucky enough to even find one. But that quintessential look- either the offset stripes in red & blue, or faded print/text- can be replicated with some crafty ingenuity. So, I headed out to the thrift store with a defined agenda- find something in the linens section that could pass as linen/burlap/grain sack material.Read more ›

Heart Beater: Vintage Valentines Décor

Heart Beater: Vintage Valentines Décor

So…Valentine’s Day isn’t much of a holiday in our house, truth be told. We’re pretty lovely-dovey all the time (I know, go ahead and roll your eyes) and I NEVER decorate for it. But…I had a holiday project idea rattling around in my head that just wouldn’t quit. AND it involved something I’d never repurposed or upcycled before: an antique, heart-shaped rug beater.  Read more ›

Hook, Line, and Sink-Oar: A Coat Rack

Hook, Line, and Sink-Oar: A Coat Rack

I’ve hinted at it on Facebook…and again in my Best of 2016 post- the idea of cabin-themed projects this year. My in-laws are putting the finishing touches on a cabin in the North Georgia mountains- which means I get to add a new facet to my blog! Whether decorative, functional, or both, I will periodically do cabin-themed projects…and when the cabin is done and ready, I’ll be sure to start including links and pictures so you can see it!Read more ›

What on Hearth: Cozy Fireplace Décor

Here we are- in JANUARY- with the holidays behind us and a new year before us. And as a blogger, DIY/Repurposed décor projects during the winter months are tough…winter decorating during the often bleak days of January and February presents unique challenges. So, I decided to revisit an old favorite- flannel- with a new project…and it just so happens to be my January contribution to The Good Life blog, as well.Read more ›

Reader’s Choice 2016: Your Favorite Sadie Seasongoods Projects

Reader’s Choice 2016: Your Favorite Sadie Seasongoods Projects

Like a bull in a china shop…

Especially when “the world” is the china shop and “ 2016 ” is the bull! It’s been a rough-and-tumble year for many folks across the globe and I suspect that there are more than a few of us that are happy to bid farewell to such a pummeling year.

But there were a few bright spots (for me)- like the Chicago Cubs winning the 2016 World Series- and yet another tremendously satisfying year of blogging. Even when the world seems like a dark, dark place…the light in my workshop flickers to life and I can repurpose-DIY-upcycle-create through it all. And then I get to share it with you! (Both the hits AND the misses, haha!)Read more ›
