Wire Storage Baskets and Industrial Farmhouse Decor from a Wire Kitchen Rack

Not too long ago, I had a REALLY fortuitous thrifting trip- as I drove home, I realized I had found materials for nine different projects. NINE! Maybe the thrifts were all freshly replenished, or maybe I was wearing a most impressive thinking cap, but either way, it was an adventure for the record books. One of my finds was a wire kitchen rack that I wanted to upcycle into wire storage baskets that had the look of industrial farmhouse decor.Read more ›

Hat Holder / Hat Storage from Upcycled Wooden Bowls and Wooden Candlesticks

I’ve confessed my love of accessories to you before- particularly with scarves and vintage costume jewelry. But I am ALSO a lover of hats…especially during the humid southern summers!

On a trip to Nashville, TN, I squeezed in a little time to check out the local thrift stores on my way into town. I happened upon a Goodwill in Lebanon, TN where I found a mismatched pair of pot lids.

Refashion a Straw Tote into a Spring Wreath

To me, Spring is all about flowers – the fresh start after winter, the gorgeous colors hanging from branches and sprouting from the ground, and the fragrance the perfumes the air.

Giving a Makeover to Second Hand Bags with Acrylic Leather Paint

Even though I don’t carry a clutch very often, I was drawn to this thrift store purse. The interior was clean, the magnetic clasp worked, and the price was definitely right. BUT – I wasn’t thrilled about the color (off white). That’s when I wondered if I could paint it. Was painting a purse even a thing? Could it be done?
