Broken Clock Gets New Home Decor Life | Country Home Decor
I found this cool clock at a yard sale. I loved the wood around the glass and was hoping I could scrap the paint off the glass to make it all clear. But, as it turns out, the clock was broken and needed work. So I took it apart, scrapped the glass, painted, and added some decoupage chicken paper. This was a definite makeover that helped.
Yard Sale Rooster to Cast Iron Home Decor
This rooster was so cute, but I wanted something more primitive to go with my decor. So painting it all black as a base color and adding the mushroom paint to the clear wax was just the thing to add color and make this look like an old cast iron piece.
Farmhouse Rolling Pin Makeover | Yard Sale Finds | Second Hand Finds
I recently found this nice, natural rolling pin at a yard sale. It needs a little paint on the handles to give it character and then food-grade oil on the middle to condition the wood. I am using Folk Art paint in the color Forest Moss. It is a good fall and holiday color.
Country Farmhouse Pitcher Makeover From Goodwill
I originally wanted to do a white pitcher with the lavender napkin decoupaged on the front. However, it didn't sell in my booth, so I changed it up and bought the IOD mold to make some farm animals for the front. I chose the cow and changed the color of the pitcher also. They are small changes, but I think they significantly impact the front of the pitcher.
Primitive Wall Scoop Candle Holder | Home Decor Makeover
I love how this wall scoop came out. The rub on letters are a game changer and I love doing the crackle paint effect.
Goodwill Stool Upcycle | Country Home Decor
Using decoupage paper on a project like this is so easy. I wanted to keep the color of the stool on the bottom, so I only painted the top of the seat to have a light, clean surface to add the paper. Before laying it on, I did a tamping technique to the top to give some texture to the background. I love how this came out, and I will use it again.
Repurposed Shutter | Primitive Crow Decor | Country Home Decor
I love finding new ideas for the shutters I rescue. This one is no exception. I start by using dark stain all over the piece to give a deep color. I added a pocket from material found at the flea market. Once it was glued, I put pip berries inside and added a wood crow with a rusty star to the top. I found some old springs on our property and used one to add a rusty touch to my project. Lastly, I added a cute crow tag to the front, and this is ready to display.
Super Easy & Quick Crock Makeover | Upcycled Home Decor | Repurposed Thrift Flip
This crock was such a quick and easy makeover. It was another piece of the ad paper I got from Zazzle. I took a simple container from Goodwill and just added that small piece of decoupage paper to make this something you want to keep in your home. The wood top was such a nice find, and it fits perfectly on the top. I love the dark stain against the white of the crock. It gives it such a rustic, farmhouse feel. Enjoy!
Rustic DIY Wooden Box Makeover | Upcycled Home Decor | Repurposed Box
I am giving this plain wooden box holder a rustic makeover. I used the stain I made with Waverly antique wax watered down and a little black paint to darken it. This stain works great for the rustic look I like. A bit of white paint on the front of the box and distressed will make the decoupage paper pop. The decoupage paper is from a website name Zazzle. They have some beautiful pieces to choose. The ribbon is from Dollar Tree, and the greenery is some small pots from Amazon. Enjoy!
DIY Primitive Cabinet | Upcycled Makeover | Repurposed Home Decor
One of my favorite things to do with furniture I find is put things or marry things together that don't usually go together. This medicine cabinet and this bookshelf are perfect examples. When painted and distressed the same, they can look like they belong together. I had the cabinet in my stash for years, waiting for the right bottom to put with it. I found the bookshelf recently at a flea market and repurposed it into the bottom part of this cabinet. I hope you like how they turned out.
Primitive Gather Tray | Upcycled Home Decor | Thrift Flip Makeover
Thrift flips like this tray are fun and easy. Whenever you find a large flat tray or sign, they makeover quickly. But, if you like, a little paint, a stencil, and some distressing will go a long way to update your home decor. I purchased the stencil pack from Essential Stencil. It comes with a welcome, gather, and farmhouse stencil together. They are still selling it, so if you are interested in getting it, check them out.
