IKEA Rast Dresser Hack

I love a challenge.

I love to create.

So a creative challenge is right up my alley.

And a creative challenge where everything is supplied compliments of sponsors, with the chance to win something, well heck yeah - I'm in!

I 'm anxious to show you all the details of this hack-redo-conversion, and what basically amounted to a total transformation, so all of the build details are included.

But first you.must.see.the.finished.hack.

Feast your eyeballs on this beauty........

IKEA Rast Dresser Hack,

Now pop those same eyeballs back into year head so you can see the before.

Online Auction Wins

I'm fortunate enough to live within a reasonable drive of a few large auction houses.

These days with the internet they don't always host live auctions where a person has to stand in the hot sun or a cold shed for half a day waiting for that one item on the wish list.

With online auctions if you lived in Abu Dhabi you could bid and have your hearts desire shipped to you.  I just hop in the car and go fetch my auction wins.

Building Progress Two Months In

Anyone who has ever built a new home can close their eyes and still smell the fresh scent of the pine wall studs.  

I know I can, and walking into #1 sons house as it was being framed took me back to the time I first encountered that smell.  I loved that smell then and I love it now.

Blooming Hydrangea

This is a first for me.  I think.

I've been waiting so long I can't remember if it happened before.

I anticipated it every year for the last four or five years, and for whatever reason, it just.didn't.happen.

Man Overboard - Dumpster Finds

I recently mentioned that furniture finds have been making their way to me.

My kids, friends, and even strangers have started to look at discarded items as a potential project for me. 

They probably think there is no way that a certain piece of junk can be turned into something anyone would want, so they drop it off at my doorstep to try to prove their point. 

Or maybe it's out of curiosity to see if I can in fact transform the item.

My philosophy has become bring me your junk, if it's THAT bad that I can't turn it into a treasure, I know how to light a match, and we always need kindling in the winter.

Wood Clock Redo/Thrift Store Decor

I've got something new on the Bliss Ranch blog, or rather I've got something old.

The something old is a new to me thrifted item that once a month I'll spruce up.  You know I like challenges whether it's furniture or some other cast off I can update.

Thrift Store Decor Bliss
The new is that I'm joining eight other bloggers for this last Wednesday of the  month series called Thrift Store Decor, and I'm pretty darn excited to be part it!
