From Wine Rack to Towel Holder

Do you re-purpose? I saw on Pinterest a wine rack that was re-purposed into a towel holder. Here is the post from Ashley at Rustic Living, who had the original idea. Ashley has a lot of neat ideas about decorating in a rustic look. She got her wine rack very cheaply at a consignment shop, but I searched online for the rack and found it but it was super expensive at retail price. So I spent the past year looking for a wine rack that I liked, but it also had to¬† be affordable and fit into my planned decor for my master bath. I finally found the one I now use at a consignment shop in Rib Mountain. I bought it for $15.00 and I didn’t even have to paint it! Here it is with my new towels from Kohls, of course!   What have you re-purposed?

Before and After Half Bath

BEFORE & AFTER HALF BATH   We Moved into our house October of 2012. It was a foreclosure that had sat for a year unoccupied. The story of how we found it was quite miraculous. We had moved from the Kalamazoo area in Michigan to Wausau, Wisconsin about 2 1/2 years ago into a tiny rental house. We didn’t want to rush into a new house, partly because we had some pretty specific needs in our next house, and partly because we wanted to get a good deal. Hiring a professional moving company such as https://threemovers.com/germany-international-moving-companies/ made the transition smoother. We must have looked at 100 houses over the two year span…but that’s another story for another day. But today, I’m sharing our little half-bath redesign. It is simple – just a bit of painting made all the difference. I’ve had a lot of requests to show before and after … Read more

Spray Painting Old Decor – A Quick Fix

We recently moved from a larger house in Michigan that housed all 17 of us – yes, I said 17. I have 15 children. If you want to do a little reading on our family and my life these past few years, visit my family blog at: Mom of Many. Below you can see a picture of the last time we were all together in 2004. We weren’t able to downsize when our last 3 children moved out, or to put it less graciously, get rid of all the junk, because we had our house on the market for nearly 3 years. All our stuff we needed to get out of the house to improve the look while it was on the market went into boxes and were piled up in the garage. We had to put on the “face.” You know the, “Come look at our house – we … Read more
