I am getting ready for a yard sale, in fact I was supposed to have it last month but we had torrential rains and so I still have a house full of things I don't really need - read too many cups and saucers that don't match!
Another thing I have is this awful oval mirror with a plastic frame. Honestly, I wouldn't have given it a second glance except that the kids took all of the mirrors from my room and so I made myself a bet. I would give it one last shot and try to up-cycle this sad sack of a mirror and if I don't like it, then I can still sell it at the yard sale. Now let's see how I intend to save the plastic mirror from the clutches of the yard sale.
Spring is finally here and I have sprung into action trying to finish up the girl's bedroom. (You can see all of the bedroom makeovers at the end of this post.) My girls need as much storage as possible because the house doesn't have much in general. And more importantly they are girls, and girls need lots of storage!!
So when I spotted this lovely (shhh...my dad is a wealthy source of old neglected furniture) I instantly grabbed it and took it up to their room. You might even remember it when I shared the mirror makeover with you. Today I'm going to show you how I gave it a makeover just like Cinderella.
This month I have been feverishly working on the girl's bedroom. In fact, I've added all the projects from this room at the bottom, so you can see them all together. I'm trying to put the finishing touches and also refresh some of the furniture I bought up from - yes - the basement.
This tired looking night stand had once belonged to my dad but lately it had just been taking up space. I thought it would make a nice addition to the girl's room. After all we can always use extra storage space! But first it needed to be repaired and revived!
This certainly has turned into a busy month for me, between the furniture makeovers and finishing up the girls' bedroom.
And that is exactly what I am here to talk about today. The upcycling of the bed frames and their room progress!
This project has been in the works for months. I believe I started on it in October of last year. And what I thought would be an easy job quickly spiraled into a disaster. But we shall take it from the top. This is the story of a mid-century modern china cabinet that has been in my family since the 1960's. I know because I was there.
I had to give this china cabinet a makeover not because I wanted to but because I had to! Read on!
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle 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 and New York.
