Dreamy Door

21. January 2015 Design 2
Admittedly, I have a hard time staying focused on a task at hand. I typically bounce between 3 different projects all at once. Today was no exception. I was working in the basement getting some wood painted for some signs I’m doing……Between coats of paint I started dreaming about these incredible doors that are original ...

BIG Kitchen Plans

20. January 2015 Design, DIY 4
I. Am. So. Excited. The other night my husband and I were standing in the kitchen and were discussing a few SIMPLE changes we’d like to make to the kitchen. We currently have a peninsula and we’ve been meaning to paint the exterior of it white to freshen it up a bit. Somehow a short ...

SIMPLE Bathroom Updates

19. January 2015 Design, DIY 1
We got a liiiiiiiiiiitle spray paint happy this weekend. Two years ago I bought this HORRIFIC light for my bathroom. Horrific. I have no idea what I was thinking or what I was smoking at the time, to think that it would actually look right in our bathroom……but it doesn’t. It looks awful. And for ...

Mantle Restyle

18. January 2015 Design 0
I can’t leave things alone for very long – my house is ever changing and constantly being rearranged. My mantle needed a fresh look so I did what I always do………. I went on a raid around my house stealing things from other rooms that would work on my mantle. My inspiration for my new ...

$10 Gallery Wall

15. January 2015 Design, DIY 1
I may or may not be taking these Dollar Store frames a little far. But. I. Can’t. Stop.  (I posted the Dollar Store Art I did last week, if you missed it go check it out!) This project seriously couldn’t be any simpler. All you need is: Some dollar store frames. Any size. Spray paint ...

Reclaimed Wood Bench

So, ya remember that really cool shutter bench that I my husband made? The one that I loved so much? Well. I sold it. In my last-minute desperate preparations for The Hob Nob Market back in November, I needed a bench to go with the farm table I was taking. Since I was in such a time crunch, we had absolutely ...

Quick & Simple Art Display for $3

07. January 2015 DIY 3
If your kids are like mine, they LOVE art. They color and create pictures for me every chance they get. I totally love it, but the piles of pictures and master pieces clutter my counters. I so want to be able to display them more. I had an empty wall in the toy room that would be room ...

Dollar Store Art!

07. January 2015 DIY 2
My favorite ideas always come to me in my sleep. For whatever weird unexplainable reason, I am most creative while I’m dead to the world in my deepest state of REM. I wonder what this says about me? It  probably means that I’m some sort of genius. Since I was already planning a trip to ...

Balance in 2015

I don’t usually blog about this kind of stuff – and it’s probably not what most people who visit Repurposed Vintage DESIGN’s website want to read. But. I’m a self-proclaimed strong (aggressive is more like it) type A personality and that means I have a lot to say – and this is a great platform ...
