DIY Upcycled Outdoor Beverage Station

Upcycled Outdoor Beverage Station Bar from Old Doors

Laura is going to show you how she took an old door and made her own version of a beverage bar station.  Laura can rock the doors.  If you missed last month’s post she made a kitchen herb garden out of an old door.  Check out today’s think outside the box door project.

I have teamed up with Online Fabric Store this week to bring you four sewing tutorials using the most beautiful fabric like Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry and Michael Miller. I thought we would start the week with a backpack we made for Kayla’s upcoming school year.  We?  Yes we!  My amazing cousin Lindsay is visiting from Chicago to help with these tutorials.

Piccadilly Earrings {Anthro-Knock-Off}

dangly drop earrings

I am a fan of jewelry.  Not dainty, fine, pretty jewelry.  But the big, gaudy, blingy kind.  When it comes to earrings, the longer the better.  And I adore dangly drop ones.  I fell in love with the $48 Piccadilly Chandelier Earrings from Anthropologie.  So when Michaels challenged me to ReCreate something I decided these pretty chandelier earrings would be just the right project.

Handmade Checkerboard

My kids love Melissa & Doug Wooden Toys.  They are such high quality toys and we always seem to ask for them for gifts.  Each of the sets come with a wood crate that stores the set.  While I love the crates they really could use a top on them in order to make it into our playroom (I am not a fan of pieces everywhere). So what has happened over the years of receiving Melissa & Doug toys is we have amassed a collection of these wood crates.
