Greetings! Ready for an inspiring weekend of upcycling? Me too because I didn’t manage to belt out anything cool this week!

I’m chalking it up to a writing week. Everytime I walked to the computer, I found things to fix, do, say, edit, you name it. It was a major rabbit hole festival of learning a few new things relating to SEO, so I just decided by the time this post was due to go up, I’d forgive myself and embrace it as such. LOL

I’ve also been learning to redate posts to bring them back into the land of 2023 rather than WAY back, so I got all fancy updating and sharing a couple of my very fav past posts…

DIY screen door


How to build a DIY screen door from scratch

I just ADORE my rustic screen door and so glad I pushed past the fact that I didn’t know how to use a jig at the time but I got everything anyway and learned as I went.

My dream screen door became a reality and my cats now have a way to watch us garden in the summer.

How to create flower bed edges like a pro

The other post is such a good one… How to create flower bed edges like a pro. I do this religiously to all my flower beds and boy do they look like a million bucks when I make the effort! And no, it’s not hard. YES you can do it too… with one simple garden tool!

So next up, let’s enjoy some fabulous features from last week’s party because they are so inspiring…

Woven upcycled bike wheel art


Woven upcycled bicycle wheel art by Lora B

It takes a whimsical genius to dream up weaving a bike wheel and turn it into a fabulous upcycled wall art piece! And such was the case with this repurposed tutorial. I love the fact that you can still see through it which makes it a wonderful piece to layer with others.

I’ll take the blue wooden skis too, please!

Tattered fabric heart wreath


Tattered fabric heart wreath by DIY Beautify

Have a few fabric scraps on hand? Why not cut up a few to create this gorgeous tattered fabric heart wreath that is neutral enough to leave out all year around?

This is a great piece that would instantly warm up any given space that was absent from fabric or curtains.

Modern farmhouse laundry room makeover for under $50


Modern farmhouse shelving for under $50 by DIY Beautify

A modern farmhouse laundry room makeover for under 50 bucks? Sign me UP! My laundry room is in a shambles state, storing a queen size bed and all my art supplies scattered all over. But this little slice of laundry room Heaven is giving me hope because my own space is small like this… and this is beautiful!

Come check out how to make rustic shelves and hang up all you need to with this affordable redo!

Faux driftwood heart keychain


Faux driftwood heart keychain by A Crafty Mix

Isn’t this driftwood key chain adorable? But what makes this tutorial so extra special is the fact that this use to be just a standard squarish chunk of scrap wood. Wanna learn how to make drift wood edges? Check out this amazing tutorial complete with a video to show you how!

Cork-wrapped and painted upcycled vases

    Thanks for sharing! (And thanks for sharing my button heart last week!)

  • It's great that you're getting computer work done & learning about SEO. I know nothing about that! I get lots of projects done, but then don't post them. I need to work on that!
