This month, our blogging group is participating in an Upcycle Challenge. I love giving thrift store items makeovers, so this challenge was a fun one. We could spend no more than $20 for the item and the materials needed for the makeover. If you've seen any of our thrift store makeovers, you . . .
Lately, I've found a new love of copper accessories for my kitchen. For a while, I had been admiring various pieces while out shopping, but I'd stop myself from buying anything because I just didn't think I could make it match my decor. I decided to buy some utensil holders and that's how my copper . . .
I've been sharing lots of decor items and furniture makeovers that have transformed a very nondescript guest room into an inviting, coastal room. When I decided to give this room its makeover, I was determined to do so on a very small budget. I wanted to keep the cost around $100. I'm happy to say . . .
Turning a thrift store find into coastal decor is one of my favorite ways to decorate. Here's another easy project for my guest room makeover. I set a budget for this makeover and transforming old items is the way to get the look I want inexpensively. I'm glad I bought this mirror a few months ago. . . .

Pumpkins and Sea shells? Yes! If you're going for coastal autumn decor, they can go well together! I decided that since I was going coastal with my fall decor, it needed to begin at my front door. This is an easy DIY wreath that can be made in under 30 minutes. . . .
From North of the Boulevard~ My latest thrift store find is a simple DIY makeover for an ugly tray. The pretty part of the tray? It was twenty-five cents! A little spray paint, chalk paint and a stencil and it went from old and ugly to fresh and coastal. Not only was this super cheap, it was also . . .
After trying DIY chalk paint for the first time and loving how easily it is to work with, I was ready to take on a project that was a little bit larger than the stenciled piece. But, I wasn't ready to use it on any furniture pieces I already own, so I made a trip to the local Goodwill Store. There . . .
