Ever go to a thrift store, find something cool (or not so cool), and think what the heck would someone do with this? That’s the challenge. 33 bloggers went on the hunt for some thrift store treasures, mailed them to their partner, and now we’re revealing our makeovers.

I was excited and admittedly a little nervous opening up the package I received from Meagan at The Charming Farmer. I’m not the most creative person, so I was a little terrified to open up the box and be completely stumped.

Anyone else participating in White House Black Shutters 40 Bags in 40 Days Decrapifying challenge?

I never imagined ever needing to participate in something like this.

Then I had children.

And every square inch of my house is filled with lone shoes, random crappy plastic toys, random sticks and rocks (aka gem stones), mountains of school paper work and art kids work.  It’s everywhere.40BAGS14 3 700x700 40 Bags in 40 DaysWe’ve been snowed in the past two days. Umm I mean we got 1/4″ of snow and North Carolina completely shut down.

So I started by decrapifying my craft room. I stuffed three garbage bags full of craft junk.

rusted roots Rusted Roots January ShowI have been dying to get some small home makeovers done around here. I’m dreaming of refinishing our stairs and adding a plank wall in our rather boring living room. But instead of been making lots and lots of signs. You can find all of my signs at The Salvage Sign.

This past weekend I participated in Rusted Roots first ever monthly show. And boy was it a great one. People came from all over the south east. I met so many lovely rust loving friends.

Rusted Roots next show is February 20-22 so grab a couple of girlfriends and come get your junk!

And then I look forward to the end of the year when I can tear out all of the artwork and hang it around my house.katie daisy art Calendar Art
