Happy New Year everyone! I hope you have all had a wonderful time during the holidays. I really enjoyed myself and relaxed a bit. I'm now ready to share with you my most popular DIY posts for 2018. Let me know which were your favorites.
A lifetime ago I started working on the bedroom makeover. And I know it is taking forever and I know that I've been working on other rooms as well but it seems I am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
This shelf you see below is the last of the projects for the bedroom (all projects are listed on the bottom) before the small reveal... because it really is a small room - New York living folks! Today I'm sharing with you a simple makeover of a wall mounted shelf and a super easy way to add shimmer to that shelf.
I have kept old furniture from a lifetime ago, always trying to re-use it over the years. I had this particular piece for over 22 years. It was a storage unit for my kids' toys and such. But after so many years I had grown tired of the look.
Έχω φυλάξει παλιά έπιπλα, προσπαθώντας πάντα να τα επαναχρησιμοποιήσω όλα αυτά τα χρόνια. Είχα αυτό το συγκεκριμένο κομμάτι για πάνω από 22 χρόνια. Ήταν μια μονάδα αποθήκευσης για τα παιχνίδια των παιδιών μου. Αλλά μετά από τόσα χρόνια είχα βαρεθεί την εμφάνιση.
One day I was taking a walk at the farm and I spotted this rusty old table. Now I must have seen this old thing about a million times, but I had never really "seen" it. I had never seen its potential until now.
Μια μέρα έκανα μια βόλτα στη φάρμα και είδα αυτό το σκουριασμένο παλιό τραπέζι. Τώρα πρέπει να έχω δει αυτό το παλιό πράγμα περίπου ένα εκατομμύριο φορές, αλλά ποτέ δεν το είχα πραγματικά προσέξει. Δεν είχα δει ποτέ τις δυνατότητές του μέχρι τώρα.
This is a thing my son gave to me a few months ago. It had been sitting in the corner of one of the rooms - actually it was in the way and had to be moved from room to room - until this week.
This week I got so tired of moving it from one room to the next that I finally decided it was time to do something about it.
I also made sure to find out what it's called: A trough or as we know it a Vintage Book Rack. And this is how I up-cycled it and made it fun.
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.
