Trash to Treasure Tuesday–Reinvented on the Road!

Treasures, treasures, EVERYWHERE!

I have been on a mad “reinvention” spree. Nothing in my path is safe. I have raided and pillaged every thrift store in town.

Why, you ask? Can’t you people just trust me and GO WITH IT? Why are you always asking me to explain myself?

Oh, yeah, I started this blog, didn’t I?

The reason for my madness?? I’m taking REINVENTED on the ROAD!

Well, just about 10 minutes up the road, actually. I will be at the WOMEN HELPING WOMEN BUSINESS EXPO at Church of the Resurrection in New Albany, Ohio on Saturday from 9-2pm.


I’m taking this opportunity to introduce our little REINVENTED community to my “in real life” community. And I plan to have LOTS of “reinvented” treasures to share. Why does this make me so nervous?

I even have BUSINESS CARDS! Oh. my. gosh.

Let’s change the subject, my anxiety level is getting a little out of hand.

So…Spring is not only the best time for garage sales, it’s also the BEST time to shop the thrift stores.

I love it when OTHER PEOPLE SPRING CLEAN! They get rid of stuff that I want. There’s one complication to this scenario. Their houses get cleaner, and mine gets more cluttered.

I even found items last week that didn’t need reinvented.

Isn’t that silver bowl adorable? And the aqua bottle? Perfect for my spring color scheme that I’m liking so much it may be my ALL YEAR ROUND color scheme. I’m not sure what that metal “cage” is, but it reminds me of a beehive.

That glass dome is part of a cheese server. I painted the base and added a crystal bowl with some phlox. Like a mini terrarium.

I have food storage jars with chalkboard labels, and LOTS OF POTS. This one would be perfect for my herb garden. I need a little help sometimes remembering what I planted!

Some stuff REALLY NEEDED HELP. But you’ll have to trust me on that, ‘cuz I forgot the before picture of this next project.

This chalkboard used to be a 70’s wooden plaque with a decoupaged still-life on it that PROBABLY was quite “in” in the 70’s. Can you picture it? Good. With a purple “frame” it’s perfect for a little girl’s room.
Okay, now it’s YOUR TURN to do the talking! Link up your projects ladies! Please be sure to link back to REINVENTED, so that your readers can enjoy the projects too!

  1. Great finds! Love the idea of chalkboard paint on herb pots and those nasty plaques…(there are always an abundance of those at the thrift store!) How exciting you get to share the wealth with your local community! They’re going to love it every bit as much as we do! = )

  2. I love your treasures! I’m hoping to have mine finished to link up in a little while!

    In the meantime, I have tagged you at my blog. It may not fit in with the “theme” of your blog, but I just couldn’t resist!

  3. Hey Kimm,

    FWIW, I get like that at times too. I must find find find buy buy buy create create create. I have BANNED myself from thrift stores to catch my breath and deal with what’s junked up in my poor garage! LOL

    I think alot of what we do is the intrique of the perfect find. Hey, at least we aren’t paying top dollar retail, right? :D

    Love your finds btw. Your taking things on the road intriques me! I’ll be watching and learning. :)

  4. I’m noticing how my projects are always made from literal trash. Is my poor showing? LOL

    Love your little terrarium!
    And the bottle! One of my fave colors.

  5. Kimm~great finds!! I’m linking up a project~ I came to do it this morning and was worried it wasn’t happening, so I’m glad to see it here~yea! Good luck on Saturday!! You go, girl!

  6. I saw a sign for this “expo” last week – sounds interesting. Might have to check it out! You must shop at the BEST GW in town – I never find good stuff like that!! :)

  7. I heard you were doing the Expo, I should be out of my cast by then, so hope to come. Good luck! With the boys not seeing each other last weekend, I’m sure we’ll be seeing each other this weekend!

  8. I am wondering if I have to do a really recent post with my trash to treasure or if I can link to an older post? I have TONS of things I did previous to knowing you existed??

    PLUS, I love all your stuff this week. Chalkboard paint ROCKS! :) You did wonders with it@

  9. OK, so if we lived in the same town I would either be so happy to go thrift store shopping with you, or else bummed because you snapped up all the good bargains! You found some seriously great things! Totally putting me in the mood to go shopping…hmm…maybe this weekend! Thanks for the inspiration girlie! :)

  10. Kimm, thank you for this challenge. It really pushed me to finish my project by my Tuesday deadline! Tee hee. I love all your finds. Thank you!


  11. Hello Kimm,
    Congratulations on taking reinvented on the road! Good luck to you! I can’t wait to see the things to come! I love this Trash 2 Treasure Tuesdays. Kicks my butt in gear to finish projects… now I see how many you have and it makes me want to do more!

  12. What wonderful ideas you have! I will definitely need to be stopping by more often!

    Also- thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a comment- always appreciated!

  13. Have fun at the Expo! What a dream job!

    You are so inspiring, I think I’ll live vicariously through your craftyness while me and my morning sickness avoid the thrift stores and spray paint…the smells!

    PS I love the old style wood “crap” turned into cool junk.

  14. I went through a season of the same disease. I have learned to control it now but have also kicked myself a few times over for passing up things that I wish I would have gotten. Good luck!
