By Lora at Lora Bloomquist Create and Ponder
I’m kicking off today’s projects with one of my family’s favorite upcycles. This simple repurpose got rave reviews when I first hung it, and then got even better when I added some junk-loving bling! I even made up a little story to go along with this estate-sale find.

Thrift Store Upcycles
By Niky at The House on Silverado
Niky, from The House on Silverado and I have been in quite a few blog hops together. I always love her farmhouse-fresh ideas for DIY and decorating.
A couple of thrift store signs that Niky found inspired her to give them a more customized makeover. If you’ve ever wanted to make your own custom signs, Niky has a few brilliant ideas that I never would have thought of.

Michelle and I are also blog hop pals. She loves vintage finds, and pairs them so well with newer items for a fresh look.
Michelle is a thrifter at heart; she loves to treasure hunt and transform her finds with simple DIY’s. She also cooks and bakes up some amazing-looking food;)
When a couple of large vases caught her eye at the thrift store, Michelle decided to give them a makeover so she could use them in her home decor.

Repurposed Furniture Projects
By Rachel at The Ponds Farmhouse
Rachel is a vintage junk lover like me, and she has the most amazing custom-built, industrial-style home. I love her creativity and her style.
Rachel and her hubs DIY together; they have unending energy, and are working on projects all the time!
In her backyard, they built an amazing greenhouse that Rachel fills with perfectly patinaed beauty. This amazing apothecary cabinet (card file chest) that I assumed was old, is actually an Ikea hack; a thrifted piece that was given an amazing makeover.

Michele is fairly new to me, but she and I have similar journeys. She was a vintage shop owner for 5 years like I was, and her love of vintage finds and decor runs deep. She is very experienced at bringing new life to old things.
Michelle’s amazing themed tablescapes have always caught my attention. Her talent for styling beautiful vignettes can be seen on her blog.
