#12MonthsofThrifting Kids Edition: Halloween Costume/Accessory

There’s a reason why people almost always correlate secondhand stores with DIY Halloween costumes. Goodwill is the perfect destination to piece together a DIY Halloween costume but it’s also an incredible resource for brand new or like-new costumes for the entire family. That’s why this month we’re thrifting a kid’s costume for the 12 Months of Thrifting Challenge. Here’s why …

DIY: Barn Door Hanging Light

For this month’s project I’m going to show you how to turn a cabinet door into a barn door hanging light with a shelf. I had purchased this door a while back because I liked the look of the back of it. It is actually a knotty pine cupboard door but I painted it to look weathered gray to resemble …

Old Tire into Storage Ottoman

Hi All! For this month’s project I’m going to show you how to turn a tire into a storage ottoman.

Antique Record Player Cabinet Upcycle

Hi All, While in search of pieces to use for the flea market flip event I participated in, I came across this old record cabinet.

DIY: Chair Makeover

DIY: Wall Decor

Happy New Year to all!! To start the year off I thought I would do a little revamping of my home decor items in the house. I started with the dining room.

DIY: Chalkboard

  I came across this cute little picture I had purchased at Goodwill at least a year ago. I remembered the main reasons I bought it were because the monkey looks so sad and the frame was adorable. It was an easy enough of a project that it wouldn’t take all day and still give me some time away from …
