Countdown to Christmas Project - Trash to Treasure Project - Life on Kaydeross Creek- Budget Friendly Christmas Decor

DIY Countdown to Christmas Board

I don’t know about you, but in our house, the kids are so excited about Santa coming that it’s all about the countdown to Christmas now! I’m so glad you’re here today because I’m sharing my latest project to help the kids keep track of exactly how many  more sleeps they have until Santa makes his magical visit. It’s also one of my favorite kind of projects, the budget friendly, trash to treasure kind, and it’s also part of a Holiday version of a trash to treasure blog hop with some other lovely bloggers sharing their projects as well.

My project started when I picked up this little gem at a thrift store over the summer for the unbelievable price of only $1. Lucky for me, I think they were just inundated with stuff and were trying to get rid of it. It’s not something that I would use “as is” but I liked the chalkboard part and shape and thought I could use it in a some way so I tucked it away for a future project.

Fast forward to November and the perfect project came up – creating our Countdown to Christmas board. Here’s how I did it.

What you’ll need:

I started by giving it a really good sanding with the palm sander to remove the letters at the top and the shiny layer on the wood. Then I painted it with creamy white chalk paint made with plaster of Paris. I used almost a dry brush technique (not a lot of paint on the brush) because I wanted it to be a bit muted and rustic.

The chalkboard was in decent shape but the person who had it before used some kind of industrial strength chalk and I couldn’t get it off completely so I gave it another coat of chalkboard paint using a foam brush. The foam brush leaves a more smooth finish than a regular brush. Luckily, the back came off and it was SO much easier to do this than I thought.

When the chalkboard paint was dry it seemed like it was missing something so I decided to paint a stripe around the edge. I used painters tape to make lines around the sides to add some interest to the center and give it some color.

I also wanted to cover up the little “chef” on the end so I used a piece of scrapbook paper that would match the red of the lines and eventually the color I would use for the wording. I placed the paper on the board and gently bent it around the edges so I would know where to cut it. I cut out the shape and used spray adhesive to adhere it.

So far, so good.  Now on to the countdown part. I used a stencil to add the “Days til Christmas” on the top. To keep it straight I used a ruler to make a faint pencil line evenly across the bottom. I highly recommend this so you don’t get half way through and realize the entire thing is slanted. Not that it happened to me,  just sayin’. It’s a good thing the paint didn’t dry very fast. 🙂

So I stenciled the “Days til Christmas” on and forgot to take the picture as I was doing it, sorry.  Anyhoo,  it seemed too clean and new when I put it all back together. Since I really wanted to this piece to have an antique feel, I used the palm sander around the entire piece to let some of the raw wood show through and then applied Distress ink with a clean cotton rag over the entire thing to get a warn,  antique-y feel.

You need chalk if you are going to record the number of days so I tied a piece of chalk to the back with twine and for a bit more embellishment added the wooden stars to the end in front of the scrapbook paper.

Fall DIY Projects - Create unique and budget friendly fall decor projects with one plaid shirt. The banner is so cute!

Budget Friendly Fall DIY Projects

Today a few of my blogger friends and I are bringing you some trash to treasure Fall DIY projects.  I LOVE fall and I definitely love a good upcycle! Usually I like to rescue a thrift store piece of furniture but this time I went with a fabric project.  The fabric started out as a boys plaid shirt and I paid a whopping $1 to turn it into 3 budget friendly Fall DIY Projects. This post contains affiliate links, see my full disclosure here.

 

Trash to Treasure Fall Decor Blog Hop

 

So for these projects I picked up this plaid shirt for, no joke, $1 at my favorite go-to thrift store. I love the orange and blue in this plaid.  Once I washed it and laid it out, I broke down how I would use it to make the most of the fabric.

Fall DIY Project - Plaid Shirt becomes three budget friendly fall craft projects

I started with the pumpkin. What you’ll need:

I had a pumpkin that I had picked up at the Dollar Store last year and planned to wrap it in the fabric. I cut the arm off of the shirt and then down the seam to open it up.

I removed the plastic stem and placed the pumpkin on the fabric and cut the piece in a circle around the pumpkin so it just came up to the top. I cut out a triangle shape on one side so that when you wrap the pumpkin it doesn’t bunch up too much.

 

Fall DIY Project - How to turn and old shirt into three different projects. A great way to make one of a kind pieces for your fall decor.

 

I laid it out and sprayed the pumpkin with spray adhesive. I started by pulling the fabric up to the pumpkin with the shortest piece in the “V” first and then little by little folding a bit here and there.  I tried to get the fabric in the groves as much as possible.

The spray adhesive works great but where it didn’t stick at the top and in between the layers of fabric, I touched it up with the trusty glue gun. Then I took a large pair of scissors and opened up the whole where the plastic stem had been to make room for the twig.  I finished it off with some twine.

 

Fall DIY Project - Pumpkin made from a plaid shirt. A great way to use an old shirt and create cute fall decor on a budget.

 

The next project was the book cover. What you’ll need:

I started by cutting out the back of the shirt and leaving about an inch all the way around the book.  I placed the book on top of the fabric open so that the fabric covered all sides. I cut notches where the binding is but left about 1/4 of an inch to tuck into the cover. The I started by using the hot glue gun on the sides.  I trimmed up the sides where there was extra fabric so that it wouldn’t bunch.

 

Fall DIY Projects - Plaid covered Book. A great way to use an old, unworn shirt and create unique fall decor pieces. Budget friendly too!

 

It doesn’t really matter what the inside looks like because you’ll never see it. It is important, though, not to pull the fabric too tight or the pattern will be off on the edge of the book and the book will not sit flat.

 

Fall DIY Project - Covered Book

 

The third Fall DIY project, the FALL pennant, took a bit longer.  What you’ll need:

I started by using the card stock to cut a pattern for the pennant pieces. I used the marker to trace around the pattern on the fabric making sure to place it in a way to make the most use of the space.

 

Fall DIY Project - Pieces of an old plaid shirt are used to create a Fall pennant. What a great way to utilize and unworn shirt and create cute and unique fall decor. Budget friendly too!

 

I cut out the pieces and broke out the stencils. I used regular craft paint for the letters.

 

Fall DIY Projects - Stencils are used to spell out FALL on this cute pennant. What a great way to utilize this unworn shirt and create budget friendly, one of a kind fall decor.

 

Once the pieces were dry, I lined them up on a long piece of twine and attached them at the top using the glue gun.  I made sure to separate them evenly about an inch or so. I left enough twine at both ends to tie it in place.

So three projects made with one shirt that cost $1.

I have been thinking about updating my daughter’s room a bit and part of that is trying to do something fun with her desk to help organize her art supplies. It just so happens that I came across these 2 quirky desk organizers at separate garage sales recently for a grand total of just $3.  Right idea, wrong decor style. 

Desk Organizers Before - Life on Kaydeross Creek

So the trick was to make them into something my daughter would like and that looked cute in the space. First order of business was to give them a good coat of paint. I planned on distressing them so I used brown satin spray paint first so that when I distressed the top coat, the brown would show through.

First coat of paint

Next I gave them a coat of creamy white chalk paint made with plaster of Paris.

To get the farmhouse look I wanted I sanded down the edges and corners here there. I wanted to add a bit of her personality to each piece so I broke out a stencil I picked up at Michael’s. It has all of these cute little sayings on it which were perfect. You can also buy it here.

I used craft paint for the stencils and mixed up a pretty blue to match her room. I randomly spaced the words out over the piece alternating shapes and sizes. With the little one I simply added her first initial. I love the way it came out!

It’s amazing how a coat of paint can tie two pieces together and create a quick and inexpensive project that adds some personality to my daughters room. I still need to update the collage and the shelves a bit so stay tuned for a few more projects!

I love changing out the display on my kitchen table every once in awhile, especially for each season. For summer I chose to create something new using this box I picked up at a yard sale for $4.  It will become my new farmhouse centerpiece.

What you will need:

I’d seen this cute idea on Pinterest where someone had used a box that they had built. I’m already ahead of the game here with my sweet find. I decided to paint it white using chalk paint. I love the softness it gives to a piece. It took 2 coats but covered fairly well…

 

Thrift Store Upcycle Project - Farmhouse Centerpiece - Life on Kaydeross Creek

 

It was way too stark for me so I broke out the palm sander and gave it a good sanding around the edges and here and there but it still seemed to be missing something.  I added a little personality with  the number stencils and  bit more character with some distress ink.

I also added some handles to the ends to make it easy to move off of the table. I had picked up a bag of these gold handles at my favorite thrift store for $1.

I spray painted them black and here is how they look..

Rustic Wall Decor – Upcycle Challenge

This rustic wall decor project started with my trip to Brimfield last week. I picked up this cute little grater for the kitchen and ended up making something completely different with it.

So, I picked up this cute little grater at Brimfield for $8. I really love the rusty patina and the wooden handle. I noticed right away that it had these curly “feet’ at the bottom and thought that would make it really easy to attach to a board.

Grater - Life on Kaydeross Creek

But not just any board. I wanted it to be rustic and weathered and chunky. We have this pile of old wood out in the yard and I dug one out.

I picked out a board that had some gray and white tones in it but it wasn’t quite light enough. The grater kind of disappeared on it so I dry brushed it with some creamy white chalk paint.

I lined up the grater in the center of the board but left enough room at the top to display some flowers. I pre-drilled the holes for the screws. I used black drywall screws so they would blend in.

They were a perfect fit. Then I added some dried flowers to the top as a vase. I could actually use real flowers by adding a small glass bottle behind the grater. I really like the way this rustic wall decor turned out!!

I like the way it looks here but I think I’ll search for a few more graters and make a collage of these to fill the space in on the wall. I think it would make a huge impact.

Painted Furniture – Antique Hutch Makeover with Pure & Original Paint

I’m crazy excited to share this painted furniture project with you today as part of the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest™ sponsored by Pure & Original Paint.  The theme for April is Pure Colors – Original Elegance. This project was a labor of love because of the piece I chose but it was sooo worth it! It was also something I had wanted to do for some time and this was the perfect opportunity and the perfect sponsor. Turns out, I loved their paint in all it’s chalky goodness!

This post contains affiliate links. I received free paint from Pure & Original in exchange for writing a review on the blog.  Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are 100% my own. See my full disclosure here.

So we were challenged to make over any piece of furniture. I chose this bad boy which I picked up a the Salvation Army for, wait for it, $35. I know, right?! I had to have it but had no idea what I would do with it, until now…

Painted project before - Life on Kaydeross Creek - Upcycled furniture

 

It was really beat up but I loved the size and the style of it and you could not beat that price. It took a really good cleaning and some spackle to fill in some of the big holes to get it ready to paint.

 

Painted Furniture Project before - Upcycled furniture - DIY - Life on Kaydeross Creek

 

The one thing I didn’t do to get this piece ready to paint was sand it or prime it first. The paint went on and covered so well without it. My plan was to layer the colors and then antique the piece so that the lighter color would show through the darker just a bit along with bits of the original wood. I started out with a color called Silverplate as the first coat.  It was much lighter than it looks here and almost had a blue-ish tone.

 

Pure & Original Paint

 

The second color was the darker color, which was called Silver Like. It was very gray and really pretty!

I used about 1.75 quarts to cover this giant piece so the paint went pretty far. The results was a wonderful smooth chalky finish. If you were painting something that you wanted to look a bit more elegant this paint would work great too but for my purpose, aging the piece, it was perfect. After it had dried for a couple of days, I went around the edges with some 120 sandpaper. The lighter color came through here and there and with a little harder pressure on the sandpaper the wood finally came through. The result on this antique hutch makeover is a gorgeous, chippy, rustic goodness and I love it!

I love that there are so many different ways to style it. I love mixing quirky antique pieces like the old camera and binoculars with new pieces like the clock and my go to favorite, white pitchers. I can’t wait to decorate it for each season and Christmas!

Although I have had some of these things for some time, you can shop this look below with similar items I’ve found…

I would definitely use this paint again. It has a beautiful finish and the colors are really pretty. My husband likes the colors I used so much that we may end up painting the mudroom the darker color. In addition, the company was great to work with. They were so professional and organized from the ordering process to follow up and delivery.

It’s amazing the character painted furniture adds to a space. If you have a piece of furniture you are not sure what to do with, why not give it a makeover and do something outside your comfort zone.  If you’d like to check out the Pure and Original Paint website you can go to https://www.pureoriginalpaint.com/usa/?ref=123.  (affiliate link – for more information please see my disclosure policy)

How to create a beautiful new tray from a thrift store old frame - great upcycle project - Life on Kaydeross Creek

An Old Frame Becomes a New Tray

I’m so excited to share this upcycled old frame project with you today! It has been in the works for some time now. It all started awhile back when I stopped at my go-to thrift store in my little corner of the world. I try to stop there once a week, as a good thrifter should ’cause you never know what you’ll find, right? So this day I scored big on a few things including two of these frames which were $4 each. That’s a bit more than I usually pay for frames (really, Col?) but these are so pretty with so much detail and even though I don’t usually gravitate toward gold,  I kinda liked it.

 

Frame Before

 

The other nice thing about these frames is they’re 24 x 24 and really deep. So one of them I used as a ceiling medallion in  my daughter’s room. The other one I hung on to it for awhile tossing around some ideas.  Then I saw some other folks on Pinterest making trays from frames and I thought I have the perfect frame for that project! Here’s how we did it…

We used 1/4 sheet plywood to make the back and tacked it on with wood glue and finishing nails. Then I gave it a few coats of homemade chalk paint.

 

frame tray before

 

frame tray before painted

 

Not the best picture, I know, sorry.  I decided to stencil a leaf pattern on the front with brown paint and then went over it with a gold paint pen. I also used the paint pen on the edges of the plywood because it was really light, almost white, wood to start with. The gold paint blends right in with the frame.

After the stencil…

 

Frame Tray With Stencil

 

For the handles I lucked out!! I found a bag of these gold handles for $1.50 at the same thrift store I got the frames at. I have used them on a few projects (more posts to come). I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it PAYS to dig through the junk bins if you have time! The color is really too bright and very 80’s but spray paint does the trick. I had a much more dull gold that I sprayed them with and then rubbed on Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint with a cloth to tone it down and age it a bit.

So here’s the old frame as the new tray…
