When we moved into our home, we found this old fashioned, somewhat rickety wooden ladder in our basement.

So, what can we do with an old wooden ladder?

At first, Jason used the ladder as a makeshift storage area to hang his Army uniforms in the basement. Once we made a designated closet for his uniforms and gear, it was time to upcycle it into something new!

My favorite idea for decorating with a wooden ladder is also a practical one: make shelves!

How to Paint Metal Furniture, A Table Upcycle for the Basement https://joyfullytreasured.com/how-to-paint-metal-furniture https://joyfullytreasured.com/how-to-paint-metal-furniture#respond Tue, 28 Jul 2020 19:54:28 +0000 https://joyfullytreasured.com/?p=2812 How to Paint Metal Furniture, A Table Upcycle for the Basement

Upcycling furniture (or random objects!) is one of my recipes for a fun afternoon!

Painting metal furniture is especially rewarding. The quick and easy transformation you can create on some slightly rusty junk feels borderline magical!

This week, I finished painting some metal furniture for our basement. We have been sprucing up the semi-finished basement, and it was in need of more furniture. Luckily, inspiration struck on a family visit to Grandma’s house!

Hanging Solar Mason Jar Lights: Dollar Tree DIY Craft Idea https://joyfullytreasured.com/hanging-solar-mason-jar-lights-dollar-tree https://joyfullytreasured.com/hanging-solar-mason-jar-lights-dollar-tree#comments Fri, 10 Jul 2020 15:14:00 +0000 http://joyfullytreasured.com/?p=299 Hanging Solar Mason Jar Lights: Dollar Tree DIY Craft Idea

Hello there! I recently made another batch of these hanging solar mason jar lights, so I updated this post to share them with you!

I’m excited to share how to make these solar mason jar lanterns with Dollar Tree supplies. I really wanted solar lights in our backyard, but they can be so expensive for attractive ones when you have a lot of ground to cover!

Dollar tree solar lights are tiny and flimsy by themselves, so I didn’t think they were a good solution.

It is so rewarding to find a gorgeous piece of furniture with “good bones” that has seen better days, and give it a beautiful transformation. I stumbled upon such a perfect coffee table on Facebook Marketplace. I am excited to share this makeover!

It often happens this way…I’m not exactly looking for furniture, but it calls to me from the thrift store or the side of the road. Don’t you just love those moments?

Simple Ideas for Small Hallway Decor https://joyfullytreasured.com/simple-ideas-for-small-hallway-decor https://joyfullytreasured.com/simple-ideas-for-small-hallway-decor#respond Thu, 18 Jun 2020 02:48:40 +0000 https://joyfullytreasured.com/?p=2679 Simple Ideas for Small Hallway Decor

I pass through our little hallway about 100 times a day, and I never give it a second thought. It is as plain as plain can be, and it could use some love!

So, I started working lately on this small, narrow hallway full of doors. We removed the 1960’s wallpaper and painted the walls and trim. Now, it is definitely looking better, just… boring.

A hallway is an area that is easy to overlook.

Oh, how I dreaded going into our basement.

It felt dark and dirty…it had a musty smell that wafted up the stairs. I thought it would take tens of thousands of dollars to make our unfinished basement look nice.

Over time, we gave it an affordable makeover. I’m relieved to tell you that we love our basement now!

While it is still considered mostly unfinished, it is now bright and pleasant, and we enjoy spending time in it.

DIY Kid’s Art Display Wall for the Playroom https://joyfullytreasured.com/diy-kids-art-display-wall https://joyfullytreasured.com/diy-kids-art-display-wall#comments Tue, 19 May 2020 17:39:57 +0000 https://joyfullytreasured.com/?p=2301 DIY Kid’s Art Display Wall for the Playroom

With the best intentions, I hang the kid’s beautiful pictures on the fridge…only to have them fall off every time I open the door, or be pulled off and ripped up by the kids. Is anyone else with me in this?

I have been meaning to find a special (and tidier) way to showcase the kids art, and this kids art display wall in the playroom is a good start!

With just a few simple materials, this kids art wall display, and this DIY playroom chalkboard are both great playroom ideas on a budget.

So many of us have large, plain, builder grade mirrors in our bathroom. We created a DIY wood frame mirror as part of our $100 powder room makeover, and it was such an easy way to update a boring mirror on a budget.

I love the brackets that give it a farmhouse industrial style. Plus, making it was really simple since there was no miter saw necessary!

We removed the mirror shortly after moving in, then hid it behind our dresser for years.

Today, I’m excited to share how we installed the new farmhouse shelves above the toilet. In September, we finished a $100 makeover on our downstairs bathroom for the $100 Room Challenge. Friends, it seriously made SUCH a difference! Check out the before photos here.

All my favorite inspiration bathrooms seem to have beautiful rustic open shelving. It was one of the must haves for our budget bathroom makeover.

Honestly, this was the easiest project we did in the bathroom.

Horray, it’s reveal day! (Or in my case, reveal night after the kids go to bed!) The challenge is to take just three weeks and $100 to completely transform a room. The room I selected is our dated 1960’s powder room.

This was such a rewarding challenge. The budget was not quite as big as my imagination, but I’m so happy with how much we tackled!

Here is a look again at where we started three weeks ago…my yellow and green 1960’s time capsule.
