Upcycled Nautical Sign

I shared in my 15 Upcycled Projects post that I would be doing an upcycled project for Earth day.  So I'm happy to say I accomplished that goal!  I created a nautical sign from a drawer front.

 My daughter was up last week for Drew's jaw surgery  and we did a little resale shopping and I found this drawer front at Restore for .99.  It was perfect for what I had in mind and bonus, I didn't even have to paint it.


I am redoing my boys bathroom upstairs and we are going with an industrial nautical theme.  I ran across this saying on Pinterest and loved it so I got my Silhouette machine out and cut the saying from vinyl. I then cut a sailboat out.


I love it! I love the positive message and I love the simplicity.


I also created these printables for the bathroom.


You can download these 8 x 10 prints here.

I found some burlap canvases at Michael's on sale and used them to put the picture on and then framed them.  Not sure I'm in love with black frames so they might get a coat of paint.  That's the beauty of DIY!!

I can't wait to show you the industrial part of the bathroom, hopefully next week.

15 Eclectic Herb Gardens

I am so ready for planting my gardens but the piles of snow have to melt first!  For the most part all the snow is gone except for the plow piles. So I will continue to dream and plan what I want to do the minute I can get my fingers in the dirt.  I have gathered 15 Eclectic Herb Garden ideas to help me plan.

Here is the herb garden my hubby and I made from palettes.  I LOVE the color they add to my boring garage wall but I think I might plant flowers in there this year and put my herbs in a different spot.


Hmmm....I  LOVE this Kitchen Herb Garden!

Here is an herb garden you can build for a minimal cost.

Short on space? Go vertical.  This would be nice and close to the house so it would be easy to grab while cooking.

I really like this look! Of course I'd need to paint the palette.  You could move it which is also a plus.

This was done inside but you could also do this garden outside.

Here is another vertical garden idea with individual pots.



Got a washtub laying around?  It would make the perfect herb garden!!!

Or an old pop crate.  Super cute!



Take tins and make a hanging herb garden.



This hanging shoe bag is definitely an eclectic creative idea.



And yet another vertical planter.

How unique is this gutter garden?



Or this luscious wheelbarrow garden? 



I like this idea but I'd have a hard time talking my husband into it.  :)



I have lots of ideas to choose from! I hope you found something that spurred your creativity.

{15 Upcycled Projects Just in Time for Earth Day}

Earth Day is next Tues. April 22.  I :LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to upcyle projects and I'm sharing 15 Upcycled projects I've done here on Second Chance to Dream.


Second Chance to Dream: 15 Upcycled Projects  #earthday  #upcycled

What is the definition of upcycle?  

up·cy·cle
ˈəpˌsīkəl/
verb
  1. 1.
    reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original.
    "the opportunity to upcycle trash, or turn it into new products, was vast"


This project was created from an old window I bought at a garage sale for $5.00.  I love looking at it in my garden.





I grabbed a free palette I found laying along side the road and made this herb garden.



This is another window project from a garage sale.


  Here is another view of this Flag.

I picked up this tin at Goodwill for $1.00.




These flowers were made from glass dishes found at Goodwill.



This old door has been in my home for 11 years. It is used every single day. I found a door at a garage sale for $1.00.  



This was made from a candy dish found at Goodwill.




And this one was made from an old book.




Find some pop cans and create some garden art.




A china tea cup + a succulent make a great gift.




This project uses a gawdy old lamp and a veggie tray and you get a bird bath/feeder.



We used old fence posts to create this trellis.



I snagged a headboard at Salvation Army for half price and created this bench.




Can't find a big door? Grab a cupboard door and create some organization.


With wood shims you can create these colorful plant markers.




I've given you lots of ideas.  I'd like to challenge you to upcycle a project before April 22..  That's my goal!  I can't wait to show you.  Oh and if you do create something email me {bjac68@gmail.com) and show me.  I'd LOVE to see your creations.
