Upcycled Linky Party {3}

And the projects just keep coming!  Last week's linky party (our second) certainly didn't disappoint.  If you didn't have a chance to swing by, be sure to get caught up on all the upcycled goodness here.   Here are few highlights from last week's party.

This one made me cringe and smile all at the same time!  You see, I've been scouring local thrift stores for this very dressing table for nearly a year.  I have big dreams to restore it to its original beauty.  So I cringed when I saw the very vanity I wanted all for myself turned into a child's art center.  But then I smiled because it was such a clever use of a roadside find and so beautifully done.  What do you think of the makeover that Jessica over at Mom 4 Real gave it:

I absolutely love shutters and Denise from Denise...On A Whim shows us one shutter two ways.  Boy they're cute, aren't they?

And finally our shop highlight this week comes from Joyce at Carolina Purses.  Let me be straight with you, I think this handbag is beautiful and well made.  In fact, I'm sure you wouldn't think it made from an old leather jacket unless someone told you so.  But, I will also admit that I may be a bit biased.  You see Joyce lives less than hour from me and I do a bit of business in her hometown of Anderson, SC.  So maybe we've even met??  Joyce, come see me at the Anderson Spring Craft Market (at the Farmers Market) on Saturdays in May.  Love to meet you.  Where was I? Oh yeah, her gorgeous purse made from a leather jacket:

Who's ready for Linky Party #3?  Here's the run down on the rules:

1.  Feel free to link up no more than one upcycled tutorial that you created and one upcycled item from your shop each week.
2.  Please don't link up the same items or blog posts as in previous weeks, let's keep it fresh.
3.  Follow Love 2 Upcycle by email or Google connect.
4.  This is a party so socialize!  Visit at least one shared link and leave a meaningful comment or "favorite" it if it is an Etsy shop item.  It would be nice if you followed them as well, but it is not required.
5.  Please keep it family friendly and upcycled!  We reserve the right to remove any links that aren't appropriate.

Now, show us what ya got:


  1. These posts always have the coolest items in them! I love all the upcycled, recycled and repurposed ideas!!

  2. That vanity is such a cute idea and I LOVE that handbag.

  3. Love the different ways to use the shutters. Very cool. Looking forward to this every week now. Thanks!

  4. Creative idea dear. But I didn’t like color scheme. It is not according to kids. It could be lovelier if it will be in blue-white, purple-pink etc…. Think about it. Patio Furniture Dallas
