Sometimes you are so excited to get started on a project. In your mind you have it all planned out and you imagine these perfect results. But in reality it doesn't always work out the way you want it. Hence the title of this project. Because there is definitely a wrong way to upcycle vintage copper post, and I am going to show you!
This month I was challenged by my blogger friends to come up with a project using a thrift store find. The only problem is that there are no thrift stores in my town. Nada! Zero! Nothing! At least not any that I know of. And so I asked the ladies if I could find something from my basement which is really the best thrift store around! But you all know that!!
At the end of this project you'll be able to see what my friends did with their thrift store finds. So make sure you go all the way to the end and read my hard earned lessons too!
EDIT: The mystery of the lid was solved. You can read all about it at the end of the post.
What is this blog all about? Aside from photography of course. Yes it is all about repurposing and upcycling and today I have a doozy for you all. I am going to repurpose the coffee beans you see below.
Yes I will make a quick coffee with tealights craft.
Because who doesn't love the smell of coffee permeating the house?
And we have finally reached the day you have all been waiting for. Paranoid Man goes to the Halloween Party! Happy Halloween!
Yes, we had the party that I've been preparing for the last two weeks. This is something that I had totally not expected would happen at the start of October. But that is the way with blogging and with life. One thing leads to another.
Are you all sick of seeing Halloween decor from me by now? Well, just in case you aren't, I have another one for today, but the nice thing is that I am doing this with a group of friends and they are extremely talented. You won't see Paranoid Man lurking in their projects. Today I am going to show you how to make a fun tube Halloween wreath. And after we are done you can join us in the link party below and add your Halloween craft.
Well hello there. It is a bit early for our Int'l Bloggers Club Challenge but that's okay. Instead of waiting till the end of the month we have moved up our monthly challenge so that you can also benefit from out Halloween projects for the month of October.
I am teaming up with my International friends to bring you Halloween crafts this month. You can see everyone's crafts on the bottom of the post. In the past, we have done Fall Crafts and Back to School crafts.
But this month I'm throwing a Halloween party for the kids! Now tell me is that not the perfect excuse to go all out for Halloween crafts and Fun and Easy Halloween Vignettes?
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.
