Our Favorite Upcycled Projects

I’ve paired up with 19 other talented ladies to bring you a monthly Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge. Each month we will create a new home decor piece from an item(s) we’ve found at a thrift store, yard sale, resale shop etc. There is no budget or specific theme so we are free to let our creativity run wild!

Dru About Dru

There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.

  1. That bike wheel light fixture is awesome! My husband would love it!

  2. I love all these projects, but think my favorite is the bicycle light! Great updates!

  3. I will repeat what the group says. That bicycle light is the best. I also like the love sign and the bench. Ok all of the projects are really good.

  4. So many great projects. I wish the recycle/repurpose bug bit me sooner in life because I love the unique look that comes from repurposed items.

  5. I love the little suitcase coffee table! So cute.

  6. You are so creative!! I love love love that wheel light, it is really cool!
