A couple weeks ago I brought home a couple planks of salvaged barnwood.  Literally, just two, because I was in my car and not the truck.  I had a vision of a planked wood top for a salvaged wire metal table base that had made it's way to us, but I didn't want to just...

A couple weeks ago I brought home a medicine cabinet that I scored from a local salvage warehouse.  Not needing a medicine cabinet, it was the mirrored cabinet door I fell in love with.  I'm sure I could have saved the cabinet and added legs and painted it with chalkbo...

I have wanted to try making my own stain for a very long time.  Unfortunately, it requires a bit of patience and planning ahead - two things I almost never demonstrate when working on one of my own creations.  The Butter Bean Bench was the perfect subject for my DIY st...

I feel like this is kind of a cheat post since I already showcased a Christmas frame this week.  But this frame is different in a number of ways, the foremost reason being that I built it.  I always plead with Terry to leave me the wood scraps from our custom-build pr...

Doesn't our bedroom look serene?  Calming and soft, soothing and quiet.  What you can't see is the Chihuahua rage taking place behind me because the boys weren't allowed in the bedroom while I took pictures.  This did not please them.  They're not used to not being all...

OK so technically this isn't a "What I Did With What I Thrifted" post, since I really didn't thrift these guys at all.  But "What I Did With Stuff I Have Laying Around My House" doesn't have quite the same ring to it.  These are just plain old, regular glass jars.  I h...

My soon-to-be husband walked past the computer while I was uploading these pictures and he stopped mid-sentence to ask "Wait.  Did you make that?" 


Insert dramatic sigh here.  Not only did I make it, but he saw it before I took it to a client.  I specifically sho...

Alright, here we go!  The second round of What I DId With What I Thrifted: A Week of Before & Afters.  This is the week where I showcase my method behind the madness of what I've thrifted.  And let's be honest, I haven't thrifted a whole heck of a lot this month.  Losi...

Today I have done seven loads of laundry, finished stripping two chairs, delivered the rustic floor mirror to it's forever home, and worked to put together our living room to accommodate our new media bench.  So happy to have an extra hour thanks to the time change! A...

Day six of a week of What I Did With What I Thrifted, and with barely an hour to spare!  The thrifted part of this project was really just the mirror.  I snagged it from a yard sale a while back; an old cheapy floor mirror that was falling out of it's frame.  The work...
