19 Valentine's Day Decor & Project Ideas

January 26, 2023
  Boy, this old cream suitcase takes me back! Back to the beginnings of Organized Clutter, the blog. I painted an old suitcase inside and out with  Rustoleum Heirloom White Paint ,  Heirloom White used to be my "go to" paint in the beginning, and this suitcase was the first container vignette on my blog. The photo above is a Victorian Valentine's Day suitcase vignette with the famous Cupid Awake & Cupid Asleep Prints in oval frames, buttons, threads, pearls, gloves, a bust, and Valentine's Day pillow.

A Winter Farmhouse Kitchen Refresh On A Budget

January 22, 2023
My kitchen needed a fresh coat of paint so badly! The old paint color was a little too almond colored, the ceiling was green, and I had painted a section of chalkboard above a corner shelf. I hope you can read on and see my small, farmhouse kitchen get refreshed on a shoestring budget!

Decorating and Refreshing A Small Bathroom

January 17, 2023
One of the rooms that recently received a refresh is my 3/4 bathroom. The bathroom is really small, with barely enough space for a vanity, narrow toilet and a neo-angle shower.  Luckily my youngest daughter painted the room for me in Dover White. She was able to paint above the shower, behind the toilet, and on the ceiling, all difficult places for me!

My Experience With A Waxed No Fuss Amaryllis Bulb

January 15, 2023
On November 19th, I purchased my very first waxed Amaryllis bulb at a Littlefork Craft Fair for $25. The vendor had several waxed bulbs displayed in various vintage containers.  Mine was in a wooden salad bowl with Princess Pine tucked in around the edges.

Washboard Cabinet Makeover

January 11, 2023
During the Christmas holidays, I found a vintage washboard/shelf at Goodwill.  I think it was a very fun find for $14.99.  The washboard's graphics were really clear and bright, and was probably never used much.  The back shelf part was homemade and not exactly perfect.  The wood cuts were off but I don't mind. Scroll on down to see how I upcycled and decorated  my find below! AND it's the Thrift Store Decor Team's January Party with more thrifted projects including rose bowl vases, vintage jewelry, thrift store art, a magazine rack, rattan lamp, necklace holder, wooden decor sleigh, and a serving tray!

Best Thrifting & Upcycling Ideas of 2022

December 14, 2022
  This is a dead red calliope geranium from my deck plantings last summer.  It still has the dirt inside of it.  I find these old buckets at garage sales, consignment shops and occasionally even antique stores, (if the price is right). Today, I am sharing a Christmas project with this bucket, along with other awesome projects from 2022 from the Thrift Store Decor Team .

Thrifted Mini Sled Makeover Ideas

December 12, 2022
I found this wooden red sled recently for $4 at a local consignment shop. I think it was probably stenciled back in the 1980's or early 90's by the font used.

Goodwill Thrifted Wooden Canister Christmas Makeover

December 05, 2022
  I found this primitive country wooden canister set at Goodwill about a year ago. It is a nesting set, so the smaller ones can be stored inside the larger one.  The bottom has a tag that says "For decorative use only", so food can not be placed directly inside the boxes.

Goodwill Finds Combine In A Christmas Project

November 29, 2022
  Back in March, I created this Boho style stenciled planter box with Goodwill finds, chalk paint, and a mudcloth stencil  HERE. I actually liked the finished project but I was unable to sell it at our local consignment store so I decided to give it another makeover!

Easy DIY Holiday Hostess Gift Ideas

November 26, 2022
  I found this box of 12 ceramic Christmas Village miniature ornaments at our local thrift shop earlier this week.
