Naked Button Globe - A DIY Globe Upcycle

Guess what today is?!

It's Thrifty Chicks Wednesday! On the second Wednesday of each month, a group of blogger friends and I participate in a monthly challenge project and we share our projects. It's also a surprise to each of us, we don't tell each other what we are making so we have to wait until reveal day too!

This month's challenge is maps and/or globes. I'm sharing mine here. At the bottom of the post, there will be links to check out the other ladies' projects!

DIY Pottery Barn Look-Alike Footstool

I love me some Pottery Barn! I used to get their catalogs in the mail and I would look through them so many times that the pages would start to come out of the catalog!

But can I afford like... anything?! I may have purchased an ornament from the sale section once! 😏

But just because I can't afford anything from PB doesn't mean I can't get the look through a little ingenious DIY and I'm going to show you how too!

Let's create a look-alike footstool!

Organizing Under the Kitchen Sink

I'm still working away on my kitchen even though it's been slow going. Not because it's super hard work or anything... it's just that I haven't had all the time I need!

I have finished painting ALL.THE.CUPBOARDS... GAH! There's a lot of cupboards in this kitchen!

I also finished the tile backsplash behind the stove.

No pretty pictures just quite yet though! This weekend I worked on a more mundane, not so pretty, but necessary, (and satisfying!) project.

Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

I hit a couple of garage sales and thrift shops over the weekend and I have a few fun finds to share for this week's TTT!

If you are new here TTT (Treasure Trove Tuesday) is where I share my latest thrifting finds. Most make their way into my Etsy shop, Little Boho Cottage, but some I just can't part with!😊

What I found for my Etsy shop!

The Best DIY Boho Pumpkin Roundup!

I think fall and Halloween decor are a couple of the hardest to put a boho spin on, don't you? After all, I haven't seen much in the way of fall boho decorations for sale in stores!

Since pumpkins are easy to find (the grocery store has them, there are pumpkin patches, and you can often find stands on the side of the road selling them) I set on a mission to scour the internet and find the best boho pumpkin tutorials.

I bet you'll be as inspired as I am to get a big ol' pumpkin and get your DIY on!


5 Things To Make With ONE Flannel Shirt!

I can't believe it's been a month already since our last Thrifty Chicks project! If you remember, last month's project challenge was chalkboards and I shared how to make Chalkboards in Any Color!

I started working with my flannel shirt I picked up at Goodwill and then couldn't stop so I actually have FIVE projects to share... 5 Things to Make with ONE Flannel Shirt! 😀

You can make so many different things with ONE flannel shirt!

Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

DIY Boho Fall Wreath

If you're as addicted to Pinterest as I am then you've most likely seen all of the cute wreaths made with embroidery hoops!

I love the simplicity of using the embroidery hoop and then embellishing it just a little bit... and I'm all about repurposing!!

So, I decided to try making my own repurposed embroidery hoop wreath but with a boho spin!
