Stenciled Wooden Clothes Hanger Wall Decor


Do you pick up wooden hangers at garage sales?  I do.

 I purchased 3 hangers for 50 cents at a recent sale. I prefer hangers with hotels or dry cleaners advertising stamps on them.

A Primitive Country Garage Sale Table Makeover


This primitive country table was one of my June garage sale finds.

I paid $5 for the table.

A Shipping Crate Stenciled Throw Pillow

This shipping crate stamp stencil from *Old Sign Stencils is rapidly becoming one of my favorites!

I thought I would use it on a few plain crates, but instead I'm finding I love the stamps with some color.

Easy Stenciled Fall Decor With A Crate and Fence Board


 I found this little wooden crate at a recent garage sale for $5.

Crates are really popular here, even without advertising, so I didn't think $5 was a bad price.

It was fairly dirty.  I scrubbed it outdoors with a bucket of hot soapy Dawn dish soap water and a scrub brush.  I also used some Krud Kutter Kitchen Degreaser Spray on some oily spots.

I let the crate air dry outdoors.

A Damask Garage Sale End Table Upcycle

 This oak end table was one of my August garage sale finds.

It was in decent shape.  A rather boxy shape and squarish legs, with an inlaid pattern on the top.  

I paid $10 for it.  

I don't think it was an expensive piece of furniture.  Not solid oak for sure.  It seemed to have a pretty thin oak veneer.

Thrift Shop Single Egg Poacher Repurpose Project

I found this object at our local thrift shop recently, (we are down to one) for $2.  Do you know what it is?

I thought it probably had something to do with eggs, but I wasn't sure.  I looked it up on Ebay and Etsy.  

Sure enough, both sites had some listed.  Most sellers called them a vintage single egg poacher.

Upcycled Drawer Succulent Planter

 I found this little divided, wooden drawer with knob at a local antiques/consignment shop for $5.

After a scrubbing with hot soapy water, I gave the little drawer a makeover.

A Colonel Mustard Shipping Crate Table with Old Sign Stencils

 This bright blue crate was on of my June garage sale finds.

It was $2.

 The crate was bright orange, before it was bright blue.

Upcycled Vintage Folding Chair with Dixie Belle IN THE NAVY

I picked up this vintage wooden folding chair at a local antiques/consignment shop for $10.

I decided the chair should be navy blue!

Stenciling Fall Colored Dollar General Placemats with Plaid Shirt


I found fall colored round placemats at our local Dollar General for $2 each.  Round works best on smaller round tables.  Rectangular seem to overlap on the corners.

Besides orange, the placemats were available in brown too.
