This was a productive week and a week of lots of planning. I started my content calendar for the next couple of months for IG and my blog. I've been planning and designing my first room makeover, which is not in my own home {I'm so excited about this} and planning for the ORC that starts next week. I'm scheduling my days and weeks with my Happy Planner. There's just something about writing things down with a pen and paper, while I rely on technology for most of my work planning and scheduling the pen to paper just helps me wrap my head around things.


I shared earlier this week the Spring Patio Refresh Challenge I took part in with a group of lovely ladies I'm connected with on Instagram. My goal was to keep it under $100, you can see how I accomplished that on my blog post, Set The Tone Before You Open The Door.



One of the components not mentioned, in that post, was the upcycled table I added. I really enjoy repurposing items that have good bones. Skott might not be as excited about this little obsession of mine because of the graveyard of items we have in the garage. But, I know he appreciates the $$$ saved!



Started with this broken end table that was in Kaitlyn's bedroom. For some reason, she thought it would be a good idea to use it as a step stool {insert sigh}. I chalk it up to teenager brain. Put on my safety glasses and gloves, grabbed a flat head screwdriver, and started prying the broken mirrored pieces off the top.




Chose my spray paint color of choice, Metallic Dark Copper by Krylon, and applied it directly over the existing gold paint.






I picked up a prefabricated, round pine table top from Lowe's and stained it with my favorite stain color from Minwax, Early American. I've used this stain on several projects around the house, including my blanket ladder and ledge shelves in my home office.








Added liquid nails around the perimeter of the tabletop and laid the stained tabletop. Clapped the tabletop to the bottom and let it sit overnight.



I'm actually digging the upcycled project more than the original table. What do you think? Leave your thoughts in the comments below 🔽 🔽 🔽




Sharing som inspo from the last Saturday Spark Party


 

Since we started with turning trash into treasure, this DIY from The House On Silverado is a perfect compliment. Niky shared a project turning what could be trash into a treasure too. Check out how she turned old rustic wood blocks into art on her blog post, DIY Rustic Wood Block Mini Signs!



I always have chicken in the house and I'm always looking for a new recipe for it. The kids are kinda bored with the norms. This Orange Chipotle Chicken looks amazing, with only 10 minutes of prep {that's my kind of recipe}!





Time to share again. Let's party, party people. What do you want to share with us home makin', DIY lovin' friends?
