A room off of my sister's master bath that basically became a catch all for random storage, was now going to have a washer and dryer...

Old Deck Wood Laundry Crate

Finally!  I am getting to this post!  Last week I shared the DIY Upholstered Bench, and here is my other repurposed project for my sister's closet/laundry room makeover,  An Old Deck Wood Laundry Crate.
Isn't it super cute, rustic, and just fun?!

I have always wanted one of these ever since I saw them on Ana White's site.  I modified my build from the Brook Laundry Basket Dresser.  Since I did not have plywood, I was planning on using free wood off of the free section of KSL classifieds.  This was another project that I wanted to make for my sister's room, but we didn't have money in the budget for it.  And when you don't have money you have to get creative!

Early in the week my brother-in-law showed me some deck wood that was for free on KSL.  I told him to grab it, it would be perfect.  It totally was...
Here it is getting taken apart by your's truly.  I actually used almost all the wood you see for this project, I am so glad I had enough.

DIY Upholstered Bench

Hey Guys!  I am so excited to share one of my projects from my sister's closet/laundry room makeover, a DIY Upholstered Bench.

If you are wondering what I am talking about...I mentioned helping my sister over spring break in my Repurposed curtain to bench top post last week.  I will give more details when I post the room... hopefully next week!

Since we were on a tight budget we made some magic with free things from the free section of the KSL classifieds (Utah doesn't use craig's list very much, but KSL is full of goodies, and yes, my sister lives in Utah, just in case you are confused).

Repurposed Curtain to Bench Top

Hi everyone!  I was on Spring Break last week.  My kids had lots of fun playing with cousins, while I was working hard, and having fun too!  I helped my sister with her closet/laundry room.  It. is. Amazing!!  I can't wait to share it with you!

For now,  I am excited to show you my Repurposed Curtain to Bench Top.  It was first shared at My Repurposed Life in February, did I mention I love Gail?  If you don't know her, you probably should, Cause she is awesome.  Ok, just making sure...
I have always wanted to try upholstery and this was my first attempt.  I have looked at upholstery fabric in the stores and I am always shocked at the price, so I decided that I could do it the thrifty way.

Beaded Spring Wreath

Happy Spring everyone!!  In honor of Spring stepping forward (hopefully!) I decided to make a fun Beaded Spring Wreath!
Of course I had to do some repurposing, and these beads were just begging to be used.  I'll bet you can't guess what they were originally used for!  I have a TON still, and have cool plans for them...

Today I am sharing my tutorial for this wreath over at Oh My! Creative today, I hope you pop on over to check it out!

We (my family and I) are heading out of town for spring break, this weekend, Yippee!  Have you had yours yet?

Hugs,
Mindi
