Trash to Treasure Chair

Are you a dumpster diver or curbside furniture shopper? I want to be but there are two problems... 1) not a lot of people put old furniture out on the curb where I live... or if they do I don't know about it and 2) I am too embarrassed and scared to do it alone, I need a partner in crime!

BUT... one day on my way to work I saw a chair sitting next to some garbage cans. I go to work super early and it was still dark and not many other people are up and about so I turned around and quickly put the chair in the back of my truck. You would have thought I was robbing a bank the way I was acting 😁😁

Sadly, when it got light outside and I went out to my truck to inspect my new chair I realized it had a broken leg 😢

I decided to try to fix it.

Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

Ready for another installment of Treasure Trove Tuesday (TTT)?!

This is where I share all the treasures I found for the week at garage sales, estate sales, and thrift shops along with what I paid for each item and the value I estimate for each item (or what I think I can resell it for 😉 because after all, when you are in the business of buying and reselling it's only worth what someone will pay for it am I right?)

4 Book Recommendations For Your Bohemian Loving Soul

Ever since I shared my Boho Bedroom Reveal I am pretty much obsessed with getting that same feel in my living room! There are all kinds of things changing around here. I sold my Ikea sectional and bought a new, normal size couch, I found the comfiest side chair on Craigslist for $50, and plans are formulating in my head as we speak.

As I'm obsessing planning how to get that look and feel I've been pouring over some of my favorite books and I thought you might be interested in them as well! So, I've created a little book review telling you why I love these!

Antique Mall Booth Update - Artist's Supplies Addition

It's time, it's time! I finally opened the new artist's supplies section in my space at the antique mall! You remember... it's the thing I keep talking about for weeks now!

It sure was a lot of work to get it all packaged up and priced, that was the unpleasant part. The fun part was unpacking and arranging it all in my space!

My mom and I spent about four hours on Friday getting it all setup. It wouldn't have taken that long but in order to fit it all in we had to do a little rearranging in the booth which meant moving other furniture pieces around.

Pottery Barn Knockoff Book Page Wreath

This post contains affiliate links.

Years ago, and I mean yeeeaaarrrs... like 7 or 8 years by now, Pottery Barn had a wreath in one of their catalogs. It was made with book pages but it was different than most book page wreaths I'd seen and it wasn't for sale 😞 Not that I could afford anything from Pottery Barn anyway!

So, what's a girl to do when something catches your eye and you can't purchase it anywhere? DIY it of course! I did make that wreath way back when... I even did a tutorial here on the blog. But like a bunch of my posts awhile back, I lost it.

Fast forward to now, I still have that wreath I made. I decided it was time to recreate that tutorial so you can make one if you want to!

Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

Over the weekend I went on another little road trip to The Dalles, Oregon about 2 hours away and while I was there I could not pass up the opportunity to stop at a couple of their thrift shops 😊 and I wasn't disappointed!

DIY Garden Markers From Things You Have Lying Around

Do you like gardening? I had a vegetable garden at my last house. I really want one again but I don't think I'll get to it this year... maybe at least a tomato plant or two though!

When I plant a garden I like to decorate it just like I like to decorate inside the house... cute trellises, garden gnomes, birdhouses, etc. 😁

Today I'm sharing some cute DIY garden markers you can make from things you already have lying around the house.

Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

Yard sale season is official open where I live, yippee!!

My mom and I went to a really gross, but pretty awesome estate sale Saturday morning. By gross I mean this house had been unlived in since the 1990's yet everything was still inside... and covered by not one, not two, but many, many layers of filth... dust, dirt, grime... and it smelled awful! There was one room that literally had a pathway through all the STUFF... it was AWESOME!!! 😍

I learned a couple of things at this sale... 1) take a reusable grocery bag or two into estate sales. We did not do that our first trip through (yes we went through twice) and my arms were too full after awhile to look at anything else! 2) put a small flashlight in my purse. There were some closets and cupboards that were too deep to easily see into the dark, cavernous recesses and I am not brave enough to stick my head and/or hands into the unknown like that!

Here are some of the things I found. I got all of this for less than $3.00. Some of it has already made its way into my booth at the antique mall so isn't included here. Hence, I will only be listing what I believe the value is for these items... just know that I paid mere pennies for each item!

How to Transplant a Cactus

This post contains affiliate links.

Have you noticed how popular cactus plants are lately?

I have one I purchased at Fred Meyer as a teeny-tiny little baby a couple of years ago and it is really flourishing in the sunshine in my bathroom window 😊, In fact, it's doing so good that I thought I'd get another one!

I transplanted my new cactus today from the plastic pot it comes in, into a larger clay pot and while I was at it I thought I'd share how to transplant cacti, it's much easier than you would think!
