Boho Decor Projects for a Vibrant Home

Colorful and vibrant, boho decor is an ongoing trend that shows no signs of slowing down. There are variations of this style, of course- some are more neutral and calm, while others are more global and eclectic. But, what they all have in common are elements that are unique and bespoke to your home, which makes these boho decor projects even more appealing.Read more ›

Pumpkin Decor from Straw Trivets

Pumpkin Decor from Straw Trivets

Whenever I see woven mats or straw trivets at thrift stores, I can’t help but grab them. And while I’ve upcycled trivets before into my boho basket wall décor, I’ve been secretly stashing away a few in fall colors. Because I wondered if I could turn them into pumpkin decor for Fall.Read more ›

Botanical Prints on Woven Mats

Botanical Prints on Woven Mats

Finding these woven mats at Habitat was both exciting (ooh, fun new thrifted stuff to upcycle!) and confusing (too small to be placemats- what were these for?). Even though I couldn’t figure out their original purpose, I couldn’t wait to get them home. Because I had an idea for creating some botanical prints and they were the perfect medium to work with.Read more ›

Succulent Hanger in a Wicker Wall Pocket

When I spotted this round basket on the top shelf at a thrift store, I couldn’t grab it fast enough. It seemed like the perfect wall pocket to turn into a succulent hanger for our home. Which, in fact, was something I had been hoping to make.Read more ›

Upcycling a Coffee Canister with Cork Fabric

Upcycling a Coffee Canister with Cork Fabric

After recently spotting a West Elm ad for some “crushed soda can vases”, I was inspired to turn to my recycling bin for a new project. It seemed like good timing, with Earth Day right around the corner. So, I grabbed a coffee canister from our bin of “recyclables that can’t be recycled here” and put my thinking cap on.Read more ›

Cactus Garden with Vintage Salt and Pepper Shakers

Cactus Garden with Vintage Salt and Pepper Shakers

Years ago, I thrifted a vintage salt and pepper shaker that looked like a cactus. I used it in my Thrift the Look: Boho post, (see it in the lower righthand corner below?). But, since then, I kept finding one ceramic cactus after another and ended up with enough to make a cactus garden!

Making an Artisan Vase with Coffee Grounds

Making an Artisan Vase with Coffee Grounds

Forgive me if this project is similar to a previous project. But I recently saw a tutorial on Postcards from the Ridge that involved making an artisan vase or stoneware vase. And it involved coffee grounds! So, I knew I needed to try out the technique myself and share the results with you.Read more ›

Hello Fall Sign on a DIY Loom

Hello Fall Sign on a DIY Loom

When I first spotted this thing at a thrift store, I had no idea what it was. Which, I suppose, made it even more attractive to me because it ended up in my cart! Posting it on my Facebook page revealed what it was- a casserole dish holder- but I was already mulling over using it as a DIY loom. A DIY loom that could double as a standing frame to display a Hello Fall sign!Read more ›

Plant Cloche from a Geometric Pendant Light

Plant Cloche from a Geometric Pendant Light

Again with the light fixtures, Sadie? Yes, you may all be thinking that…but, I promise this’ll be the last one for a while! I was immediately drawn to this geometric pendant light while thrifting the other day. I just loved the shape and didn’t care if the light portion worked or not. All I could see was the potential for a plant cloche that had an eclectic, modern style to it.Read more ›

Thrift Store Furniture, Art, and Decor for Our New Home

Thrift Store Furniture, Art, and Decor for Our New Home

Earlier this year, I published a uniquely personal blog post that showed you our new home. In my eight years of blogging, I can count the number of personal posts that I’ve published on one hand. But, I have to say, the response was incredibly favorable with many requests for MORE personal (or non-tutorial) content. So, I wanted to give you a six-month update on the thrift store furniture and decor that we’ve purchased so far.Read more ›
