Saw it. Wanted it. Made it.
Hello friends! Welcome to another week of Must Have Craft Tips! Kara from Mine for the Making here this week to share Creative Upcycled Craft Room Ideas with you. I love a good upcycle or repurposed project and I love a pretty, organized craft room. Let’s check out these unique solutions.
I love taking something ‘old’ and making it new and fresh again. Especially furniture! Just add some elbow grease and lots of love, and you can turn any dingy piece of furniture into a focal point of your room. Here are a few of my favorite furniture transformations that are perfect for the craft room. Some are used for storage and others are used for work spaces.

Upcycled Projects for Organization and Decoration
You would be surprised what you can use for organization and decoration. An old baby crib, a vintage crate, tin cans… So many options if you open your creative mind on alternative ways to use ordinary things. Let’s check out some of my favorite up cycled projects for organizing and decorating your craft room.
Upcycled baby crib to craft storage
Repurposed frame to chic pincushion
Upcycled Crates to craft shelves
Upcycled tray to magnetic board
Upcycled bed spring to craft storage
Repurposed tins to pencil holder

Such great ideas! Most times that I upcycle or repurpose something, I save money doing so and I love it so much more because of the effort put into it. Do you have any upcycled projects or pieces in your craft room?
Join us next week for more tips on using upcycled ideas in your homes!

It’s been quite a few days since I’ve posted on the blog! I have missed it so. We had such a busy week last week with soccer starting, homeschool activities, sign orders, and preparing for MFTM Craft Class I just really had NO time left. But I’m back and ready to share so many cute Halloween projects with you! My *first* Halloween project this year is Reclaimed Wood Candy Corn!
Um…HELLO little cuties! Come sit on my entry table please! We made this in MFTM Craft Class and the girls all loved them too. My 5 year old wants to make one, so I see many more in our future. Want to make some for yourself?
You will need:
2×6 piece of reclaimed wood
table or circular saw
protective eye wear
paint (white, orange, yellow)
First you want to use your pencil and ruler to draw triangles on your 2×6. You want a 4 inch tall triangle, 5 inch tall triangle, and a 6 inch tall triangle.
Use your saw to cut out the triangles.
Sand the triangles with your sander.
Use your pencil to draw lines around the triangles to separate the 3 colors.
Using your sponge brush, paint your triangles, starting with white at the top, orange in the middle section, and yellow at the base of the triangles.
Allow time to dry.
*Optional: distress with a sanding block and distressing ink
I just LOVE them these reclaimed wood candy corn. Have you worked with reclaimed wood? I love it because it’s reusing something rather than letting it go to waste and I also LOVE the look of reclaimed wood. My husband does lots of home renovations/business renovations and whenever there is wood being tossed, he knows to bring it on home. Between the two of us, it will get used. I have also been know to pull over and throw wood it my trunk from off the side of the road (furniture too). One man’s trash is this girl’s treasure.
Here’s a look at my Halloween entry way…
Almost everything was made by me or was purchased at Dollar Tree, Target’s dollar spot, or at a craft store on clearance after the holidays. The themes for my entry way is a witch’s lair. Check out some of these Halloween projects below…
Thanks so much for being patient with my absence for the last several days. I promise not to make it a habit! I hope you loved the Reclaimed Wood Candy Corn! I’m excited to share my other Halloween projects with you this week, so stick around!
If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen a few sneak peeks of my most recent refashion. I wore this dress once (for the 4th of July about 5 years ago) and it’s hung in my closet ever since. I wanted to make the dress into something I’d feel more comfortable wearing on a more regular basis…rather than every 5 or so years *winks*
(pardon the horrible lighting)
Let’s check out the before and after one more time…
