100 Repurposed Projects for Your Home and Garden

And just like that…2021 is coming to a close! It’s been a transformative year for me, personally- my first book was released (!!!) and we bought a house here in the Charlotte area. But it’s certainly been a challenging year once again.

Windmill Decor from Ceiling Fan Blades

Windmill Decor from 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 The first order of business was replacing the outdated squeaky ceiling fan.

I developed this project by accident. I was in my local Goodwill with a specific project idea in mind, and headed to the shelf in Housewares where I thought I could find what I needed. Well, wouldn’t you know it, but Goodwill had secretly moved things around and put their selection of baskets in that spot instead! And from that sea of beige, this little white basket all but jumped out at me! I couldn’t help but see it as a Halloween candy basket, so I snatched it up.
