DIY Basket Wall Decor

Hey Friends! As promised, here is my DIY Basket Wall project. If you didn’t catch my last thrift store haul post, I found a set of woven trays for under $5.00 that I used for this.

I had been looking for light & travel friendly wall decor for our camper when I saw these woven trays at the thrift shop. I immediately thought about making a basket wall for the bathroom to go along with the tropical theme I have going on in there.

I marked a pattern with a sharpie as a guide to get an idea of how I wanted the pattern to look. This is where you can really get creative. Use the sharpie as a base and start painting. Let that dry for a day and then come back and add more if you like. I wanted these to be really colorful & tropical. I came back to these at least 3 or 4 times and really layered the paint.

Here is the final look done and hanging. They came out so good and I love how they bring so much color in here! I hung them on the wall using command hooks and they stay perfectly in place.

I hope this brings you some fun home decor wall inspo.! If you find a decor piece that you love but isn’t the right color or fit, give it a new paint job! You won’t be disappointed.

DIY Dollar Tree Apothecary Cabinet

Hey friends! I made this cute, inexpensive apothecary style cabinet and I wanted to share it with you. It was so easy to put together, you can make one too!

I started with 12 of the wooden square craft boxes I found at Dollar Tree. (You can add more to make your cabinet as tall or as wide as you like.)

I removed all of the inner drawer pieces and aligned the outer pieces the way i wanted. Keep in mind, the boxes will not all be exactly the same size. You will have to arrange them in a way that is aesthetically pleasing. As you can see in the photo, they are not exactly aligned horizontally or vertically.

After I got them arranged to my liking, I glued each piece together with E6000. I used mini clamps and clothespins to help keep the pieces together while the whole piece dried.

After the piece was completely dried, I inserted the drawer pieces and added two coats of my favorite stain color: Jacobean from Minwax. *Be sure to wear gloves & an old pieces of t-shirt or cloth will suffice for applying the stain.

I found my hardware on Amazon. I wanted the card catalog style pulls. I wasn’t able to find a 12 pack so I found the cheapest 5 & 10 pack of pulls and ordered them.

Here’s the final piece with hardware added!

I’m super happy with how this cabinet came out! It actually looks like an antique! It and adds the perfect farmhouse, vintage/antique vibe to my decor & it all came together for under $30! If you decide to make one, I’d love to see!

Thrift Store Haul

Hello friends, and welcome back!

I scored lots of goodies on my latest thrifting adventure, so I thought I’d share them here with you all!

I have a bunch of stickers for scrapbooking/card making and the black card catalog is perfect storage for them. I love decorating with pumpkins in the Fall and was happy to find this cute set to add to my collection. Can we talk about this brown suede fringed bag? So cute! It was in mint condition so I had to have it! I picked up a few old linens to use for table runners/covers. They are worn in and so soft. I have a thing for baskets/trays and wood pieces!! I can’t help it, they bring so much texture & warmth into your decor. It’s currently being used as a bed tray now. I loved the look & texture of the last piece, so I think I may hang it in my bedroom gallery wall or our travel trailer. I haven’t decided yet!

I found this awesome throw for our travel trailer for $3. I’m decorating in a Southwest/Boho theme and thought this was perfect!

I picked this up because it reminded me of those antique sugar molds. It was only .99 cents and I was able to keep the plant for something else!
I got it all cleaned up and washed! Now it’s ready to be styled!!

I hope you enjoyed this little haul. I love thrifting and finding things I can re-purpose or re-style! Don’t be afraid to get out and shop your thrift shops. You can find some really fun & unique pieces for next to nothing. Follow me on Instagram to get more home decor ideas or to see how I use my thrift store finds in my decor!

Thrifted Sewing Chair Make-Over

Hello & Welcome Back! Can we just talk about this chair make-over for a minute??? I mean…I just love the finished project!! I have my great, great grandmother’s Singer sewing machine that I made over a few years ago when I first received it. I didn’t have a chair to go with it and have been searching for the perfect piece…I finally found it!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know how much I love thrifting!! I cam across this chair at the Goodwill and although the seat was hideous, the bones were great! At only $9.99, I knew I had to have it.

I started by removing the legs & seat cover, then I gave the frame a good cleaning with soap & water. After it was completely dry, I added a coat of white chalk paint & a matte sealer to help keep scuffs & nicks away. I had this gorgeous 1 yard cut of material stashed away in my cabinet that I thought would be so perfect.

I cut away the dirty fabric & since my cushion was in good shape still, all I had to do was wrap my material around and staple it down. See the final piece below. Such a transformation!

I hope you love this piece as much as I do! Don’t be scared to shop the thrift stores, you just might find exactly what you’re looking for.

Metal Scrap Bucket DIY

Hi friends! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas & a Happy New Year! Over the holidays I worked on a few small projects which I’ll be sharing here. First thing i needed was a new scrap bucket for my craft room. Check out below for my supplies & pics! This is a super easy & quick project that anyone can do!

I was in Hobby Lobby shopping for Fall decor and came across some cute little galvanized buckets. I grabbed one then headed to the unfinished wood for some pieces that would work for legs. I’ve linked a few here that would work great with this project.

I spray painted my bucket with a can of white chalk paint and used yellow craft paint for the legs.

After it all dried, I attached the legs with E6000, & made a little mini bunting to hang across the front.

All done & super cute!

Thanks for stopping by to check out this super quick & easy project! Let me know what you think.

Whimsical Witch Themed Halloween Mantel

It’s just a bunch of Hocus Pocus!

Hey friends! Halloween is almost here and I can’t help but share my whimsical Witch themed mantel this year. I’ve added a couple of new decor pieces & I’m dying to walk you thru my spooky little set up!

I’ve been eyeing a similar mantel scarf for almost a year now from a retailer that was way too pricey for me. I was almost about to give in and make my own when I came across this one online. It’s way more affordable, but I was not a fan of the gold glitter. It is almost yellow! So I made a few changes to match the one I originally wanted.

First, I went over the gold glitter with some neon green puffy paint, then I added purple glitter glue dots all over the black pendants. After they were all set and dry, I sewed a few dollar store black glittered bells to each of the larger points on the pendants.

I am just loving the way this came out! It’s so fun and I’ll be able to style this for years to come.

Next, I arranged my decor pieces I already had.

I found this cute little resin spell book stack & witches hat at the At Home store. I painted the bottom book purple, added some yellow-green paint to the diamonds, & the word “Spells” to the top book.

And to complete the look, my spooky trail of bats making their way up the wall!

I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope it gives you some inspo for your next spooky mantel!

If you want to learn how I made my spooky potions, check out a really great simple tutorial by LunarFoxCrafting on You Tube. Here’s the link :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqwvAx9FzOY. I printed my own labels I found online and skipped the tea step. Other than that, I followed the video and they came out great. Using the soap works really well!

Dollar General Treat Bucket Hack

Hey Friends! Spooky Season is here!! Today I’m sharing this quick little DIY with a treat bucket I found at Dollar General. I always throw my candy in a random bowl to pass out on Halloween. I’ve been wanting something more decorative and when I saw this cute fabric bucket for $6.00 at Dollar General, I knew i had to have it! Check out down below to see how I made this quick & easy modification to the handle to create bucket handles.

Here’s the bucket & if you look at the top you can see a black strap. That is one long continuous strap from side to side.

I cut the strap in half down the middle and then flipped the edge over about half an inch twice. I pinned in place to hold it down while i figured out my placement.

Once I found the length I wanted, I just sewed that side down to create the handle. I repeated this on the other side as well.

Here it is all done & ready to be filled with candy!

I hope you enjoyed this quick little hack with this fabric bucket. Check out your local store and grab one. They are super cute & I love that i can just flatten the bucket down and store it for next year!

Happy Haunting,
