Don’t these sweet votive candle holders look like they washed up on a beach? Maryann shares a great technique to turn new glass into the beachy and frosted glass that is so pretty! Summer is coming and you will want to make these Frosted Glass Tealights for your coastal decor!

My Repurposed Life

Gail had such a great idea for this project! Aren’t we always changing out photos of our loved ones? This Photo Display Repurposed Frame will get the job done!

Petticoat Junktion

Do I see a candle stand with a pie pan?? Omgoodness, this is the sweetest repurposed thrift store Candle Holder, don’t you think? You won’t believe what she paid for the pieces to make it – just a few cents!! Yay for senior citizen discounts at the thrift store!! Way to go Kathy!

Our Southern Home

You know I am a furniture girl, right?? Then you can see why this sweet table caught my eye! Christy must love to give furniture pieces a makeover too – this sweet side table has had two makeovers!

You’ll never guess where Suzanne found the wood for the cutest Pumpkins she made! This girl doesn’t waste a thing! I think we could be thrifty besties!

Reinvented Delaware

How can I pick just one favorite from the year?? It’s kinda like they are all my little children – all being my faves!

But if I had to choose one, I think I will land on this Easy Cake Stand. The whole thing came together for under $5! Maybe that’s why I landed on this being my fave – I am the Queen of Cheap especially when a repurposed thrift store makeover turns out this nice!
