Dining room chair makeover



Give new life to an old, outdated dining room chair. These chairs, found at a thrift store, had great bones. They were extremely good quality, well constructed and had little damage.
The seats were removed and the frame was painted with a few cans of spray paint. Seats were reupholstered with a few snips of fabric and a staple gun. What a fresh new look!

Vanity stool t-shirt upcycle

I found this vanity stool at a thrift shop for only $10.00! It’s tarnished gold frame and it’s bland fabric seat was crying for help. I had a great vintage looking t-shirt that was given to me as a gift, and a can of black spray paint. I removed the seat, painted the base and stapled the shirt on the bottom of the seat. Attached top back to base and I had a “wow” moment. I love it and it will look great in my sons room as our small tribute to the Beatles.




Easy DIY craft desk


What an easy, inexpensive project. I found this on Pinterest a few months ago and wanted to share it again. Two simple shelves units are being used to support the top made out of painted plywood, cut to size, and added molding. It’s the perfect size for large and small projects and has storage to boot. Love this!

Fish platter turned into spoon holder

imageSpoon rest at its bestI hate those dinky spoon holders that are sold in department stores made to sit in the center of your stove. They rarely can hold one cooking utensil, much less, an oversized spatula. I found this magnificent Mexican fish platter at a thrift store and repurposed it as my spoon holder. It has become not only useful, but it has given my boring stove some pizazz!
