New Upcycle Ideas 677


Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

Greetings and a Happy Mother’s Day weekend to you! My son’s birthday happens to land on Mother’s Day this year so it will be interesting incorporating both our interests in one day!

On the homefront, I have been actively working on new stencils which are still not ready. Ah well. 

I’ve also got this fabulous dresser find waiting for a redo however I was waiting on paint to arrive… which it now has! So now I can work on it next week. It should be a fun one as it’s going in my son’s room.

And some cute outdoor chair pads to stripe… and more. Much more. So I hope you tune in next week when I hopefully have some fun news or at least stories to share of the progress!

We are currently enduring a bit of a heat wave which is our first of the year. The snow melt is in full action so fingers crossed we won’t have issues with potential flooding.

While on the blog front, I did update a couple of popular posts:

farmhouse window with moulding

How to make easy farmhouse window trim with stock lumber!

This is my total favorite DIY of all time because the outcome truly looks as beautiful as it shows in the picture.

Here’s how to build 34+ easy and inexpensive DIY shelves!

If you need a shelf or two, this round up showcases ALL my fav DIY shelves made for free from scrap wood along with a few other ideas to use as shelves. You WILL find one that works in this line up since they are all easy to modify to suit.

So until I have a little more to show you of my own, let’s enjoy these fabulous repurposed project features from last week’s party post….
