From Country Decor to French Farmhouse Style

From Country Decor to French Farmhouse Style

Country decor from the 1980s, the wooden pieces covered in ducks, geese, and hearts, are a pretty common sight in thrift stores. And while the motif is outdated, the pieces often have good bones and are made of heavy, solid wood. This magazine holder was no different and I decided that I could “re-trend” it from country decor to the French farmhouse style pretty easily.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 on a White Ceramic Canister

Getting the Look of Vintage Crocks on a White Ceramic Canister

This project, my friends, was a complete and utter experiment. And I decided that no matter the outcome, I would post the final results. That’s not an easy promise for me to make- the idea of posting a failure gives me great anxiety! And what, pray tell, was that crazy idea of mine? Getting the look of vintage crocks or a stoneware crock on a white ceramic canister from the thrift store!Read more ›

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 ›

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 The first order of business was replacing the outdated squeaky ceiling fan.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 ›

Recreating the Look of Grain Sack Fabric for Scented Sachets

Recreating the Look of Grain Sack Fabric for Scented Sachets

Grain sacks are a wonderful trend if you ask me. From their faded graphics to the texture of the fabric, I just can’t get enough of them. But cutting into grain sack fabric for upcycling crafts seems almost sacrilegious, doesn’t it? I wanted to create some scented sachets with feed sack fabric, but using a real grain sack was NOT an option. Read more ›
