Yay! It’s Field Trip Friday with Christy from Confessions of a Serial Do-It-Yourselfer! You will enjoy Christy’s style, taste and creativity. I am honored that Christy is willing to be a part of Field Trip Friday today.
Hi everyone, my name is Christy and today I am so excited to welcome you to my blog, Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer! As the title suggests, I move from one project to the next to the next. I love to drag home all kinds of treasures from who knows where and give them new life! I love to re-imagine and upcycle just about everything and anything. If I can’t find what I’m looking for, I have no problem building or creating what I need. I also love to share easy-to-follow sewing tutorials.
I started blogging, not only as a way to share my adventures, but also as a means to inspire others to tackle projects they otherwise thought they could never do. Maybe you’ll feel inspired too!
Come along, I’d love to share a few of my favorite projects with you today!
Let’s start with a fun furniture makeover. I found this dining set at a thrift store for $85. Can you see the potential?
Here’s the after…
Here’s a fun upcycle. I found this old headboard at a yard sale for $5 (the crazy thing is they had two and I only took one. So crazy.):
Here’s the after…perfect to hang just inside the door to hang your hat and whatnot!
Here’s another simple upcycle. I started with a thrift store frame and some old fencing I found on the side of the road:
…and created something fresh and new, a pretty white-washed tray!
How about a build? I redid my master closet to make it more functional, using every available square inch…without breaking the bank!
Finally, let’s go outside, I have to share one of my all time favorite projects!
See these ugly granite landscaping stones (actually in this photo, they might be about the best thing ha ha):
I used them to create a circular patio… believe it or not, this is the same spot on the side of my house as shown above!
I hope you enjoyed these projects, I’d love for you to drop by my place to see more anytime!
Thanks so much, Meegan for allowing me to spend some time with your lovely readers!
If you like what you see, there are several ways to follow along!
Okay! How amazingly talented is Christy?? I am always inspired by her talent and ability to take on huge jobs.
Thanks so much Christy for being here today.
