Primitive Decor for the Laundry Room with an Antique Washboard

While I am no stranger to upcycling vintage washboards, I have yet to create anything for my laundry room in my nearly 5 years of blogging. So, when I found this antique washboard at a local favorite thrifting haunt, I decided to repurpose it into some laundry room decor.Read more ›

French Farmhouse Decor from the Thrift Store

French Farmhouse Decor from the Thrift Store

I wanted to take a quick detour from my normal upcycling and repurposing projects for a slightly different kind of blog post. Today, I wanted to dive into thrift store decor a little deeper, because shopping secondhand is near and dear to me. In fact, it’s the foundation of everything I do here on my blog. Think of this as a “Shop the Look” kind of post, but not with fashion. Instead, we’re going work on a “Thrift the Look” home decor vignette using a magazine photo as inspiration. And the theme of this Thrift the Look post is French Farmhouse Decor. Read more ›

Getting the look of vintage crocks or a stoneware crock on a white ceramic canister from the thrift store!Read more ›

Upcycling a Vintage Window as a Quilt Frame for an Antique Quilt

Upcycling a Vintage Window as a Quilt Frame for an Antique Quilt

Antique quilts aren’t something you see at thrift stores very often. But on a little jaunt through the Georgia mountains one weekend, I found TWO old quilts. I didn’t want to be greedy and buy both, but I did take one of them home. It was crumbling and damaged, so it was definitely a cutter quilt that was destined for upcycling. And I knew right away that I wanted to display it by using a vintage window as a quilt frame.Read more ›
