Pumpkin Sign Fall Décor from a Repurposed Wooden Paper Plate Holder

Sometimes, I find a potential project piece while thrifting and I have NO IDEA what it even is. That was what happened recently, when I stumbled across this oddly shaped wooden rack. So, I posted it on my Facebook page and asked for help identifying it. Within moments, dozens of people happily informed me that it was a paper plate holder!Read more ›

Beer Coasters as Man Cave Gifts from Mini Tart Pans

Beer Coasters as Man Cave Gifts from Mini Tart Pans

Last Fall, the Mr. and I were perusing the shelves at a man cave store when I spotted a display of beer coasters that looked like bottle caps. I chuckled to myself because I thought it was a cute idea…and as I walked on by, I had a “Wait a second!” moment. Why? Because I knew I could make my own version…using mini tart pans!Read more ›

Barn Style Farm Sign (and Baby Goat Day!)

Barn Style Farm Sign (and Baby Goat Day!)

While on a recent Junkin’ Journey, I found a salvaged cabinet door that just screamed BARN! Even though I wasn’t sure what I’d ultimately do with it, it was just so unique and special that I nabbed it immediately. I was, however, sure of one thing- whatever I did with it, it would have *something* to do with a farm.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 ›

Well, here we are again with the same vintage quilt that I found at a thrift store…this time with Project #2! To refresh your memory, I found these country quilts at a Habitat ReStore in the North Georgia Mountains. I ended up just purchasing one of them…the pretty lady on the left!Read more ›

How to Upcycle a Vintage Teapot into a DIY pincushion and Sewing Caddy

How to Upcycle a Vintage Teapot into a DIY pincushion and Sewing Caddy

With my burgeoning love of sewing comes a need for storage for sewing supplies. And one of the things I wanted to have was a cute, functional pin cushion that had one additional feature- secrecy. That may sound crazy, but with a cat as curious as Cottonball, a secret pincushion is not all that far-fetched. So, I decided to make a DIY pincushion in a vintage teapot. Read more ›

Hanging Bird Bath from a Casserole Dish Lid

Hanging Bird Bath from a Casserole Dish Lid

Once upon a time, we had a hanging bird bath, the concept of which I really liked. BUT, it was plastic and impossible to clean and refill- needless to say, it didn’t come with us when we moved! Replacing it has been on my upcycling to-do list for quite some time, and I finally set my mind to it. Y’all know I love to create a good outdoor/yard project, too, so let’s get right to it.Read more ›

30+ Upcycling Ideas for Vintage Planters

As an upcycler, I absolutely LOVE incorporating vintage treasures- especially ones in disrepair- into my garden decor. And I am by no means alone- using antiques or secondhand items as garden planters or garden pots is so popular, that big box stores are stocking their shelves with “new made to look old” garden items! But save yourself a trip, head out to your garage or shed, and you may just have the perfect piece to use. Read more ›

Thriftique-Chic Vintage Fabric-Wrapped Bangles

Anyone who does any sort of crafting/upcycling or spends time on Pinterest is well aware of fabric-wrapped bangles. It’s not a new idea by any stretch! BUT…my dainty hands and wrists (quite literally the only dainty body parts I’ve got) put the “bane” in bangle, because I never find any that fit well.Read more ›

Avoid Plastic / Reduce Plastic with Reusable Produce Bags

Avoid Plastic / Reduce Plastic with Reusable Produce Bags

Like so many other eco/cost-conscious shoppers, I love to bring my own tote bag(s) to carry my groceries home. Any time I can avoid plastic or reduce plastic, I take it! So, I decided to make some reusable produce bags (i.e., veggie bags or fruit bags) by upcycling some kids t-shirts. They are plentiful at thrift stores and on a smaller scale that is perfect for produce!Read more ›
