oh my !  that's my dream porch.  I love that blue door. :)   That welcome sign is so pretty and apparently the easiest diy ever.  Shared on FB too.  Way to go Misty!

kid's art desk from a free (curbed) armoire.  This handy art center has a fold down table and lots of storage to hide everything away. It would be right at home in your living room, change out the knobs, and it would love to hang out in the playroom.

love this workshop organization +MyFixitUpLife 
 
Workshop organization: 1 Chaos: 0 Check out today's blog to see what Mark built to keep his workshop organized. http://ow.ly/Jh0c3
Is workshop organization kind of a part time job for you? Workshop organization: Max racks for all the stuff you use. And might use someday. Seems like it

hardwood floor photo prop I needed a nice flooring option to take pictures of my furniture pieces. I found the easiest way ever!  All you need is a piece of plywood, an oil sharpie, stain, and poly.

cabinet door coat rack shelf  I love repurposing cabinet doors, but I like to challenge myself to "change it up" a little.  I made this useful coat rack shelf from an orphan door and a scrap piece of wood.

Do you ever wonder why you took so long to do a project?   This little cabinet has been waiting almost 2 years for a makeover.  In the end, it wasn't easy, but it was pretty quick and I love how it turned out.  It's so versatile, with so many possible functions including #sidetable   #petbed   #blanketstorage  and many more!

It took years for this piece to speak to me. Well, maybe it was talking and I wasn't listening.  Finally, it has a new and useful purpose.

headboard bench with storage  This twin headboard bench with a drawer is a unique piece.  I married a twin headboard and foot board with a drawer unit I picked up for $5.

faux plank wall  portable wall for photo staging furniture pieces.
Since I can't bring my large pieces inside, I made a wall on wheels for photographing my large pieces outside.

It's a perfect compliment to my faux floor!

I love cutting up furniture, but sometimes less is more.  That is the case with this 90's pressed wood dresser. After removing the drawers, adding shelves, wheels and a new top, this old piece has a lot of purpose to offer.

Me too Gail ...I love cutting up Furniture. It's really a good feeling for somereason. Nice Job on the upcycled Dresser. A couple of baskets in the bottom shelve would work with this nice piece also. Love the look.

I love cutting up furniture, give me an old desk, and a saw, and I'm a happy camper. This desk and hutch were a curb find.  I decided to cut the desk down (in depth) to make it more manageable in a kitchen, office, craft room, etc.  A fresh coat of paint and some extra shelves, and voila!  I am so happy with how it all came together.
