Washboard Decor for the Laundry Room

Washboard Decor for the Laundry Room

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 washboard decor for the laundry room.Read more ›

Baking Pan Storage in a Kitchen Caddy

Baking Pan Storage in a Kitchen Caddy

Magazine holders are a pretty common sight at thrift stores, aren’t they? I’ve certainly seen my fair share of them, and have even repurposed a few of them before. Upcycling another one wasn’t a priority for me, but this particular one couldn’t be passed up. Large, sturdy, and ripe for a makeover, it seemed destined to become a kitchen caddy.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 ›

Vintage Condiment Caddy as Mini Succulent Pots

Vintage Condiment Caddy as Mini Succulent Pots

I recently went on a thrifting adventure in Spartanburg, SC- a town not too far from where I live (and where I was recently interviewed for their local paper!). And let me tell you, the thrifting angels were singing from above. I found future project after future project, driving home with a car load of fun finds. And one of those finds was a vintage condiment caddy.Read more ›

Coastal Farmhouse Decor from Glass Candle Holders

Coastal Farmhouse Decor from Glass Candle Holders

I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but it is just wickedly hot here. So much so that I long to stay inside where the A/C blows cold and I can daydream about the elusive cool summer day spent on the coast. And with that idea in mind, I decided it was time to create some beach themed decor. But this time, I’m taking it a step further as coastal farmhouse decor. Yes, “coastal farmhouse” is a real thing!Read more ›

Upcycling an Old Washboard into a Chicken Wire Frame as Primitive Decor

Upcycling an Old Washboard into a Chicken Wire Frame as Primitive Decor

Whenever I stumble upon an antiques mall that has a “Clearance Section” I am like a heat-seeking missile with one goal in mind: to find a broken vintage treasure (on the cheap!) to become my next repurposing project. And so, when my eyes fell upon this old washboard that was missing the actual washboard, I knew it was a moment of crafting kismet. It seemed destined for upcycling and would be perfect as primitive decor.Read more ›

Tabletop Version of a Vintage Library Card Catalog

Tabletop Version of a Vintage Library Card Catalog

On one of my typical thrifting adventures, I spied this mini chest of drawers near the cash register at the thrift shop. I didn’t really fancy the painted fruit “still life” that covered it, but I WAS curious about the wood underneath the paint. The idea of a “makeunder” floated through my mind as I envisioned a vintage library card catalog as the end result.

Upcycling a Wire Bread Basket into a Woven Bowl

Upcycling a Wire Bread Basket into a Woven Bowl

I struck thrifter’s gold the other day (or, more like thrifter’s silver) when I spotted a wire bread basket on the Goodwill shelves. In fact, I spotted SEVERAL wire bread baskets. They were perfectly tarnished (i.e., patina!) and in need of a new purpose in life. As I studied the collection of wire baskets, I pondered the idea of transforming them in various ways.

Restoring a Small Footstool with a Wooden Cutting Board

Restoring a Small Footstool with a Wooden Cutting Board

I don’t buy much thrift store furniture for upcycling projects, simply because I usually repurpose small items from the housewares section. But I couldn’t pass up this small footstool that I saw the other day. Its rush seat was unraveling, but I could tell it had good bones and was a nice piece of primitive furniture. So, I decided to try my hand at restoring it.Read more ›

Windmill Decor using Ceiling Fan Blades

Windmill Decor using Ceiling Fan Blades

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 saved the ceiling fan blades for a project- of course! I had this idea for transforming them into windmill decor or a half windmill wall decor.Read more ›
