License Plate Yard Art

It's time  for what is quickly becoming my favorite post of the month!!

The second Wednesday of each month the Thrifty Chicks (a group of blogging buddies and I) join together and complete a challenge project and then share our results with you!

This month's challenge was license plates! If you missed last month's kitchen items challenge you can check it out here: What To Do With a Collection of Random Kitchen Do-Dads.

Kitchen Remodel Progress

I thought I would check in with you with the progress of my kitchen makeover. I have been working on painting the cabinets... a BIG job because my kitchen has a LOT of cabinets... but I've been doing just one section at a time in order to not overwhelm myself.

So far I have worked on this set of uppers and the base cabinets below them.

Scrap Fabric Projects - Or What To Do With a Scrap of Fabric!

This post contains affiliate links.

Do you ever see a little piece of fabric that you just love? Maybe you have one already?

Maybe it's vintage... maybe it's a remnant from the fabric store... maybe it's from a piece of clothing that no longer fits, but you love it.

It might be something you've hung onto FOR. LIKE. EVER... or maybe you found it recently, but you love it.

It's not big enough to do much with... but you love it!

Well, I have some fun projects to share, things you can make with that little piece of fabric to showcase it and get it out where you can love and enjoy it!

Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds - Part II

Yesterday I shared Part I of this week's thrifting finds, there were a bunch!!

Today I am sharing the rest of my loot!!

New thrifting finds, available soon!

Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds - Part I

My mom and I went to a great estate sale on Saturday. The person who owned the house had a secret room that even the family didn't know about and it was full of vintage and antiques... in fact, the whole house was full of vintage and antiques!

You pulled some book cases out of the wall and there was a whole other room that no one knew about!

So, that great estate sale combined with a couple of thrift shop visits means I have quite a bit to share for today's Treasure Trove Tuesday!

So much in fact, that I've decided to split it up into two posts so it's not so overwhelming... I was getting overwhelmed with all the picture editing for sure!

New thrifting finds, available in the Little Boho Cottage etsy shop soon!

Antique Mall Window Display

I shared with you about a week ago that I'm closing down my spaces at the antique mall. I still feel like this is the right decision but there are some things I will miss for sure... like creating new window displays at the mall... rearranging is one of my favorite things to do and getting to shop the entire mall for things to create a new display is so much fun!

I thought I would share my last window display I created. This was actually a joint effort with the girl I work with there on Saturdays. I started this display but ran out of time so she finished it up. I think it turned out so cute!

I am calling this "A picnic in the woods".

Now that my outdoor dining area is coming together I have another project to show you... I think you'll really like it 😉

Remember that old, rusty toy truck I showed at the end of my last post?

Well, it has been repurposed and has a whole new, useful life... as a condiment carrier for the table!!

DIY Outdoor Benches

Do you remember my Recycled Pallet Outdoor Dining Table I shared weekend before last? (Be sure to check it out if you missed it)! 

Well, I made the table but didn't have any chairs that would work with it because it turned out a little taller than I expected... a little mismeasurement faux-pau 😬 You know what I do when I mess up like that? I just go with it! So... benches were in order!!
