A few weeks ago my daughter's friend gave me a gift. It was a bag full of plastic bottles that were for tea. She knows what a recycler and repurposer I am and she was sweet enough to collect a bunch of them and bring them over. A girl after my own repurposing heart!
I had them hidden away with a vague idea that I'd do some sort of spring project with them. Little did I know what a mess that would turn out to be.
Today I am advising you on how to not decoupage plastic bottles with napkins.
Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
A while back I had refreshed my older daughter's room. She is a lover of blue so we had painted the room a sweet shade of blue and made all sorts of small changes here and there. I had even done a tour of the room.
My daughter is a wonderful girl and but has very strong opinions about what she likes and what she doesn't. I had redone her chair in this post and dared to ask if I could redo the desk as well. Let's just say I didn't stand a chance.
My girl loves color in her room so I was really surprised that she was content with that boring desk. But she was adamant. No painting! So you can imagine my surprise when one day out of the blue she said "yes mom, it's time to paint it". And this is how the Fabulous Ikea desk makeover with chalky finish paint came about.

Last week I showed you how I upcycled my Christmas tree ornaments. Because you know I am frugal like that. Today I am going to show you how to repurpose your decor for a unique Christmas look, just like I have done with my living room.
The big elephant in my living room is the wall unit that takes up the whole wall in one end of the room. It is big and tall and has lots of room for decorating. And I always try to please it by filling it up! The smartest thing I ever did was to flip all of my books around and so now I have a neutral canvas to add all the decorations I want.
I'm Mary and I live in beautiful Greece where I like to repurpose and upcycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece.
