I found a cabinet with great bones at a thrift shop and my mind went wild with different ideas of transformation. I bought it for $29.99, took it home and because I had so many different colors and finishes in mind I had to let it wait ( for two months ) until I filtered through my thoughts. Then I saw a cute small cabinet at a local furniture store and then I knew. Blue with country white doors and chicken wire. I wish I had a before picture of the holes where the knobs were missing but I was so excited I forgot to do it. Here’s a look at my inspiration and the final product.
Upcycling everyday items into unique pieces of furniture has been a practice used by the crafty and handy, as well as interior and furniture designers, for many years.
Well the tables have turned! I found some fabulous Upcycles where furniture has been transformed into something spectacular and functional.
With fall and cooler weather right around the corner I started to get excited about decorating for the holidays. Unfortunately Its a little too early to pull out the Christmas decor, (I had to talk myself out of it) so I decided to go to work on a fall wreath and found these great ideas on bhg.com.
Remember, upcycling is more exciting and budget friendly if you use what you have or use products of nature like pine cones, dried flowers, twigs or leaves. The best upcycle is original and it’s free!
