Articles

 The new magazine-style format of the blog will include posts that have three elements: 1) a fun repurposed or before-and-after idea, 2) a practical real-life article to inspire you to repurpose your own struggles or challenges into growth opportunities, and 3) a reading recommendation for you to consider. Michelle loves books, all things trash-to-treasure, and helping women discover hope - something she hopes you enjoy in every issue!

Cedar Chest: Before and After Transformation

For today’s Thrifty Thursday project, I want to show you a cedar chest that I was able to transform for a very small cost. The chest had a very worn surface, and was missing some veneer on the lower leg part. I liked the texture of the trim and the detail work. But I knew […]

Memo Board from a Broken Computer Monitor

When you don’t want to put a broken monitor in a landfill, this is one way to repurpose it! I could have repurposed it just as it was, but I decided I didn’t like the silver frame around the screen, so I chalk painted the frame. I neglected to take a before picture of the monitor! […]

From Biker Gang to Beloved

Love. We all crave it. More importantly we all need it. Without it, we end up in life-or-death situations or in a string of horrible relationships.

I went to church last night, and so today instead of being at church I’m out on the deck reading. No makeup. No shower. I’ve scrolled through my IG feeds and there are a billion perfect photos of bloggers, writers and influencers all professionally staged, touched up, filtered. I want to stay real #nomask #nofilter . No fake perfection. But it’s tough. Those photos are lovely! The perfect and polished is such a magnet. I could create my business and public persona that way, but I’m fighting the illusion and wanting to rebel against the norm. To be a #nonconformist in the online realm of writers and bloggers. Can I get an amen from the other rebels out there? This isn’t about how I see beauty but in how I see reality.
