Upcycle & Repurpose Thrifted Items With Hobby Lobby Metal Containers


Upcycle & Repurpose Thrifted Items With Hobby Lobby Metal Containers
Since I live in a small town, I don't have a lot of shopping opportunities.  We are down to one thrift shop, one big box store (Menard's), and 3 dollar stores.  And our Kmart closed a year ago without a replacement.

While I still find items to upcycle and repurpose at the thrift shop and garage sales, I supplement my project pieces with metal containers from Hobby Lobby.  I must drive 100 miles to find the closest Hobby Lobby stores, so I do order online as well.  I always purchase my metal pieces at 40% - 50%.

The above pieces (and a few more) became part of my past projects.

One would think I get a commission on Hobby Lobby sales, but I don't.  Just giving you some inspiration for upcycling and repurposing in the coming year.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Thank you for the inspiration! I happen to really love what you did with the coffee grinder. Just too cute! I’m also loving the framed galvanized wall pocket. I know I have a couple of old frames about that size and think that would be so cute! Keep up the good work Carlene. I’ve always loved your work and following everything you do. Happy New Year!
