New Upcycle Ideas 681


Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

Greetings! We just climbed down from another heat wave, so the relief of clouds with rain is so welcome! Plus, what better time to tackle some indoor projects?

My list is long… but I seem to be locked into summertime mode. Have any tips on keeping on task? Because this girl is not shining in that way at the moment! Lazier summer days have officially set in.

I have been sharing a few project examples I’ve done with the newer stencils just released though. No blog posts yet to accompany them!

And after two long years, I finally figured out how to change the oil in my gas-run pressure washer. This was big. And I’ve been actively collecting reclaimed wood, and even landed a few wooden hanging baskets I’d like to do something creative with. If you want to keep up to speed, follow my Instagram stories.

How to professionally edge flowerbeds

In other news, How to edge flowerbeds like a pro is my current #1 post. Which is something I also need to redo by the way! Whadda way to get reminded, huh?

So until I figure out a good strong sharing plan for next week, let’s get inspired with these fabulous repurposed project features from last week’s party post…

Just when I was shopping for (rather expensive) patio lanterns, this fabulously easy and affordable DIY wooden patio lantern housing a battery operated candle pops up! What perfect timing since our string lights stopped working… Love this look which could be customized to suit!

  1. Thanks so much for featuring my patio lantern this week, Donna! I have to say that I was truly inspired to edge my lawn after reading your post and watching the video! Although my edging doesn’t look as pretty as yours! And thanks a lot for hosting this lovely upcycle party! It’s always a joy to join and read about all the awesome upcycles!

  2. Oh my goodness, that little gypsy fairy wagon is the cutest! And Donna, I so appreciated your easy tutorial for creating a pro edge on flower beds! Thank you for featuring my ruffled flour sack towels 😉
