Repurpose Roundup – January 2015

By |February 13th, 2015|

I loved this small rolling metal cart but it was a little plain and slightly wonky.I added barnwood to the sides to make it sturdier and give it some character. Then casters to the bottom to improve the function of this handy little piece of furniture.I wanted to give a new life to this waterfall […]

Rustic Red Cabinets – January 2015

By |January 12th, 2015|

I managed to get this small pile of red boards from a neighbor who was taking down an old out building. I had just enough for a tall country cabinet. I kept the design simple and added some fence boards for the shelves. I made the door out of 1 x 2’s that I ripped […]

More projects 10/6/14

By |December 17th, 2014|

This big old beauty had a lot of character but the large drawers seemed out of place.

Antique Buffet – Before
I don’t think the drawers were original to the piece, so I replaced them with doors which seemed more appropriate for a buffet. After some repairs and reinforcement it was time to paint. I started with […]

Crate Board Light and More Crate Furniture 2/25/14

By |February 26th, 2014|

I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to […]

Repurposed Sewing Machine Cabinet 2/12/14

By |February 19th, 2014|

To repurpose this sewing cabinet to a hutch I used these wall hung shelves for the top of the cabinet.

Although the width was a great fit, the height did need to be cut down a bit. I added trim under the shelves and at the top then backed it with reclaimed tongue […]

Repurposed and Upcycled Dining Set and Light 12/11/2013

By |December 11th, 2013|

I started this project with two, too small tables, a rectangle and a round.

I used the base of the rectangle table and turned the top the opposite direction. After cutting the round table top in half, I added the halves to the ends of the rectangle. Now it’s an appropriate size […]

Colorful Country Bench

By |August 16th, 2012|

This is just a basic country bench made from reclaimed wood. I built the base from 1″ x 6″ barn boards and the top is left over drawer sides from a construction site. I started with the base by cutting down a 1 x 6 board to the 18″ height then cutting the […]
