This retro stool was refurbished with a new leather seat in a bright, popping red  color.  This stool is a perfect accent chair for a room and provides fun extra seating when someone needs to "pull up a seat".  This stool is AVAILABLE at


An upcycler's dream, this window pane coffee table with storage was constructed from reclaimed wood and a repurposed window.  This coffee table is sturdy enough to be the center piece of any room.  It has storage which provides functionality  and is stylish in design. What a creative way to salvage and repurpose  items destined to be discarded! 


​​This cedarwood planter box started out as an old tool box . The tool box was covered with cedarwood planks both inside and outside.  The cedarwood was then finished with a mixture of cherry and amber stain.  One of my favorite parts are the hooks and  sturdy rope detail for easy handling.  The planter box is portable and will make a great accent to any room.  This cedarwood planter box is available for purchase at my Etsy store at


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this coatrack.  A true repurposing adventure.  The coatrack is made of wood shelving slats that have been arranged in a staggered pattern.  The flea market washer knobs are the decorative feature for hanging items. 


These vintage brass candlestick holders were given an unexpected twist as book ends. They have been drilled and pressure fitted into landscaping ties that have been painted glossy black and given a protective finish.  The brass anchors were polished and buffed restoring their luster while retaining their vintage component. Perfect for somoneone who appreciates a nautical  decor accent. 


This distressed wall unit is one of my personal favorites.  So much time and attention went into getting this project "just right". The shelving unit was designed and constructed from reclaimed wood.  It was sanded, painted, then distressed by hand for the patina effect.  A light stain was added and finished with a clear coat sealer.  It has a center hook at the top for hanging decor.  Sawtooth hooks were added for easy mounting.  Great for displaying books, plants, vases, and nic-nacs. This item is available on my Etsy store @​​.
I have fallen in love with the texture of stone ground paint! This wooden boogie board was elevated to a new level using textured stone paint in charcoal (top) and black (bottom).  A racing stripe was added keeping in line with the "motion" theme.  The boogie board was mounted to the base of a repurposed desk chair.  The lever and hydraulics makes the coffee table height adjustable and the wheel base makes it ideal for mobility.  This table is great for a man cave, teen room, or any place that needs a touch of "cool".  


This country wood coffee table is an upcycling dream!!  The base started out as a 3-shelf wall unit with scalloped trimming (probably from the '70s).  With the scalloped trim removed the shelf unit was turned on its back and, voila, a coffee table  was born.  The cedar wood lift-top was upcycled from the door of a dresser and driftwood slats were affixed. Custom-made and new black hardware  give this coffee table a polished look.  I'm so proud of this piece and am excited to see it find a new home. 


This sleek, tiled bar cart has been upcycled from a bland, boring and outdated piece to a sleek, comtemporary, and modern home accent. It is functional and stylish.  The vinyl tiles make for easy clean up.  It can be used for plants or beverages.  This bar cart is perfect for the person who loves eco-friendly upcycling and wants to show off their unique style.


 This decorative plant stand has been upcycled from "drab to fab" featuring multicolored, glass tile.  Use it as a traditional plant stand or even as a bathroom caddy.  Create an elegant and classic look in your living space with this one-of-a-kind piece.
 This crate shelving unit was the first to be made in black with knotted pine table top and shelves. SOLD
This vintage-modern frame is such a gem.  A wooden frame with detailed lined grooves gives it such character.  I wanted to modernize the frame and make it functional as well.  To this end, I gave it a chalkboard/corkboard interior and updated the frame with a bright blue paint, tipped with white highlights, and finished with a shellac to give it a sheen, protective finish. Sawtooth hooks are on both ends so it can be hung vertically in either direction.  This item is available on my  Etsy store @
This is a cool, one-of-a-kind plant stand made of wood balusters and metal grates from a barbecue grill (cleaned of course!). The wood was given a gray stain coating and a clear coat finish.  This item has been SOLD.
This vintage washboard is from the National Washboard Company No. 28 circa early 1900s.  The original wood and designs on both sides have been preserved and coated with polyeurathane.  The trim has been given a black high gloss finish.  This piece is perfect for a kitchen, mud room, or laundry room.  Decorative magnets can be used to display pictures or notes.
