$5 Summer Goodwill Challenge (Video)

This week I participated in a $5 Summer Goodwill Challenge hosted by, Hilary from My So Called Home on YouTube. She started this challenge a couple years ago and has been doing it seasonally ever since.

The goal of the challenge is to take $5 and spend it at any thrift, goodwill or resale shop and use it in your home. This challenge I found two items at our local Family Thrift (Salvation Army) and used them to add a Holiday touch to my coffee bar in my Craft/In-Home Salon Space. Check out the video below to see what I’ve done.

Pinterest Inspired Ladder Planter

I’m almost done with my Pinterest Inspired Garden Projects and it’s not even summer yet.  My latest is what I’m calling the Ladder Planter. When we moved here there was an old ladder not stable enough for use.  After seeing similar ideas on Pinterest I came up with my version.  Again the coco lined baskets came from Aldi.  The small basket on the side and the one I have a pair of Jala’s old rain boots in are from Dollar Tree.  The Gourd sign was a thrift store find from last year.

Repurposing old art work into new art work

image

I’m in the process of giving Jala’s room a makeover. What I try to do before I buy something new is try to repurpose what I have. That way I’m able to spend money on other items that are needed. Like bedding, paint, rugs etc. As well as, some of the items that need replacing may still be in great shape. With the help of some paint, scrapbooking paper and adhesive, something old can be made new again.

This is what I started with.

image

These four pictures were apart of Jala and James’ room when they were younger. I created a unisex theme for the both of them to share. Since my oldest is gone they both have their own rooms. These pics are still in excellent shape so I decided to paint the trim white and use scrapbooking paper to change the pictures. All of which I had on hand in my craft corner.

image

This is the scrapbooking pack I used and I selected four prints. Her room will be painted purple so I wanted prints that would be a bit darker to contrast the walls and the white frames would pop out as well.

Here are the four prints I selected from the pack.

image

Next, I cut the paper to fit inside the frames.

image

After I was sure of a good fit I removed the scrapbooking paper so that I could paint the frames.

Once they were all painted and dry I replaced the scrapbooking paper using a tape adhesive to adhere them to the old picture. As far as paint goes… I primed them with white Kilz paint I used for another project and painted them with some basic acrylic craft paint.

image

They turned out fabulous and will give us another 6 years of decor. Do you have an item in your house that can be repurposed into something new?
