What on Hearth: Cozy Fireplace Décor

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 ›

Christmas Merry-go-Round: Vintage Postcard Carousel

Christmas Merry-go-Round: Vintage Postcard Carousel

Back in January of this year, I was thrifting at my local Habitat ReStore and spotted a spinning photo frame that was in excellent condition. I was fresh off a Christmas high, with several “coulda, shoulda, woulda” holiday project ideas bouncing around in my head. But it was January and time to move on, right?

Nope. I put the frame in my cart and filed away this Christmas idea for a later time…and finally, FINALLY, that time is now.Read more ›

Patchwork Flannel Draft Stopper

Patchwork Flannel Draft Stopper

You know I couldn’t get through 2016 without at least one flannel project, right? I’ve got oodles of flannel shirt bits- relics of 2015- that need to be used up. And with the temperatures dropping (FINALLY!) and that instinctual desire to make everything look cozy, I grabbed a trio of shirts from my stash.Read more ›

Baubles to Bobbins: A Valet Turned Sewing Kit

Baubles to Bobbins: A Valet Turned Sewing Kit

Now- I know what you’re thinking: Sadie already created a sewing caddy once before. And you’re right…I still use it all the time, and the pins are safely tucked away from my cat, Cottonball. BUT…when I found this outdated jewelry valet with its padded top, I knew right away it would be a great little sewing kit for this month’s post for The Good Life Blog.Read more ›

Booked for the Holidays: Individualized Party Coasters

Booked for the Holidays: Individualized Party Coasters

Sometimes I walk the aisles of thrift stores and have “near-craft experiences”, which is when I have a repurposing idea immediately, right there in the shop. But there are plenty of times when I find a treasure with potential but don’t have a clear vision in mind. That, my friends, is what happened when I came across this adorable vintage set of coasters that looked like a bookcase of encyclopedias!Read more ›

Halloween Motley Crew: “Haunted” Figurines

Halloween Motley Crew: “Haunted” Figurines

Here we go again with my latest contribution to The Good Life blog, the DIY/Lifestyle blog of Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina. For October’s post, I went with a Halloween project (of course!) and decided to create something so ridiculously simple that anyone- and I mean ANYONE- can do it. Even if you don’t have a crafty bone in your body.Read more ›

A Barrel of BOOs: DIY Candy Stand

A Barrel of BOOs: DIY Candy Stand

Even though I have been trying oh-so-hard to work on projects from my garage stash, I still can’t help but swing by a thrift store now and then. Because, you just never know what you’ll find…like this vintage barrel stand, for instance. Based on my Facebook feedback, a LOT of folks had one in the home many moons ago, and lots of folks used it to hold their knitting supplies.Read more ›

“Thrifter-Upper” Farmhouse Coffee Sign

“Thrifter-Upper” Farmhouse Coffee Sign

It’s a new month which means I’ve created new project for The Good Life blog- the DIY/Lifestyle blog hosted by Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina that I am a contributor for. Now that cooler weather is approaching (hurray!), I thought a coffee-themed project would be wonderfully seasonal.

One of my favorite, FAVORITE things to find at the thrift store is a wooden cutting board- even the ones that are terribly beat up and even a little gross. Why? Because they are super inexpensive and really easy to repurpose into a fresh idea. So when I found this little gem (for a whopping $0.60), I snapped him up immediately.

Coasters with Style- Salvaged Wood & Vintage Tweed

Coasters with Style- Salvaged Wood & Vintage Tweed

I have to admit- when I first decided to create coasters from salvaged wood, I had a very different vision in mind. Here’s how it began…

I went to a salvaged wood sale and filled up my car with some fantastic pieces. There were…just a few planks to choose from…
