Adventures with junk & power tools

Yay for power tools! Yesterday with it being so dreary and miserable out I stayed inside drilling 'things'. Was super fun! Friday afternoon I gathered supplies... A friend cut up a wood pallet for me. Here's my stash of wood.



I then picked up this plethora of drawer pulls for $6. Total score!



Here's my indoor set up. I'm ready to kick some upcycling butt!



I measured where to add holes, did some drilling then added the drawer pulls.



I had a mini accident - I broke one of the drill bits. Oops! I guess I don't know my own strength. Or something!



Last night I found MORE drawer pulls. I keep finding stashes here, there and everywhere.



These ones seemed so dated. I decided to give them a pseudo shabby chic finish. I added white craft paint, let it dry a bit then rubbed it off to enhance the floral design. I love how they look now! They totally suit the look of the upcycled wood organizer. Yay!



And here you go! I now have five complete organizers. I added hangers yesterday then sanded the wood a bit. They are all good to go!



I love the roughness of the wood with all it's imperfections. Fun and super pretty!



And here's my how to thanks to A Beautiful Mess.



I took more photos to show the complete organizers. Here's organizer #1...



This is the metal 'thing' I bought during my thrift store adventure on the Sunshine Coast. It certainly came in handy!



Organizer #2...



Organizer #3...



Organizer #4...



Organizer #5 - I made this last weekend...



I'm off to get crafty... Not sure what I'm going to make. I'm taking a break from organizers until next week. I might paint things this aft. Why not!
