Repurpose before you Recycle ... Create something ordinary into extraordinary


 Repurpose before you Recycle ... Create something ordinary into extraordinary#PalmoliveWM,  #ad 
“This is a sponsored giveaway with Mums the Word Network and Palmolive.


As most of you know one of my favorite things to do is recycling the ordinary into extraordinary!  This post is none the different than some of my other projects I have done on "recycling what you have."

Before I throw anything in the recycle bin, if I like the shape of it or I think I can do something creative with it, I repurpose it, before I recycle it.

Like this Palmolive dish soap bottle that I have turned into a decorative bud vase.  I loved the embossed curves on it and thought it would make a nice decorative bud vase to set along side my sponges and dishwashing brush on my refinished white tray.  I don't know about you, but I have always found it a challenge as to where to house these items.  Where do you put your sponges and dish brushes?  Under the sink?  On top of the sink?  On the counter?  I think I have finally met my challenge by creating a decorative space to house these items with what I would have recycled.

Here is how it was made

when the bottle was all assembled, I added a couple of metal embellishments with hot glue and spray painted the entire bottle

when the bottle was completely dried,  I went along the sides and back coming up around the bottle following the embossed  lines with green paint

dry brushed it with some white

 I cut a couple of pieces of the metal ribbon and spray painted it white, once the pieces were dry I formed it and wrapped it around the neck of the bottle and hot glued it in place.  This was done to hide the neck of the bottle and coordinate with the metal embellishments on the bottle

Tip:
Placing some beans or rice in the bottle will help weigh it down.  After filling it add a cork to keep the beans from falling out

Now for the fun part, decorating your bottle and filling your bud vase.

Share it One More Time #3

Hi Everyone,  It was another great party here last week at Share it One More Time.   We would like thank all of you that took the time to come out to share all your great ideas and yummy recipes with us.  If you didn't get a chance to visit some of the others be sure to check out last weeks party.






Here is what I have been up to here at One More Time Events... although, it isn't quite officially Fall,  I did share one of my Fall projects that was kind of forced upon me when I refinished my buffet. Rather than redecorating it with the same decorations and because it was close enough to Fall, I went ahead and put some of my Fall decorations out.



and whipped up another Ice Coffee for you at "Thirsty Thursday"




Here is what Cathy's been up to at Vintage Paint and More...  Even though Cathy has been holding off doing any Fall projects, she did share a great Fall Wreath tutorial  Burlap Wreath Tutorial  and is promising to bring you more great Fall ideas soon!

Fall Preview with Buffet Makeover


Fall Preview with Buffet Makeover

After refinishing the buffet this gave me a clean slate so to speak... rather than redecorating the buffet back the way it was before,  I decided to go ahead and decorate it with some Fall pieces I recently  picked up... I tried to wait for Fall to  get a little closer, but I thought... oh heck why not...close enough... just do it!!  

Although most people, myself included stay within the traditional colors of fall, this year   I decided to go for softer tones of butternut, soft yellows, tans, green and adding pops of purple. 


Fall colors butternut, yellows, greens, Tans with a Pop of purple at One More Time Events.com
I just love these colors together!

Fall Preview with softer colors at One More Time Events.com


Recently,  I fell in love with this new stain called Driftwood made by Rust-olium.  When I discovered it I had no idea what I was going to use it on, but had to have it.  Have you ever  seen a stain or paint color and just had to have it? 

  I couldn't wait to use it!!! I actually used it on another piece (which I will share later).   After I saw what it looked like on the other piece, I couldn't wait to get busy and refinish the buffet.  

Rustic look on Buffet at One More Time Events.com

Here is what it looked like before stain was applied.

I have been wanting to lighten up the buffet for a long time now and redo the dark top along with  blending out  the chunky highlights 


Refinished Buffet at One More Time Events.com

To refinish the buffet, I used a technique called pickling.   Pickling  is very similar to white washing,  the only difference is instead of using paint, I used a light colored stain.  

Since  I had no plans of sanding or painting the top of the buffet and wanting some of the darker color to come through,  I simply just applied the stain with a sponge brush.  I didn't use a regular brush which you could do, but I didn't want the brush lines,  so by using the sponge brush it allowed me to blend,  smooth and work it down into the pores of the wood.  Normally I would use a clean rag to wipe away the excess, but by using the sponge brush there was  no need to wipe it at all.

Fall Centerpiece at One More Time Events.com

The buffet was chalk painted a while back,  but like I mentioned I really didn't care for the chunky highlights, to me it gave more of a rustic look which I like, but on the right pieces. I did the same technique on the buffet itself as I did on the top.

Pickling with stain at One More Time Events.com

I love the new look of the buffet and how it gives  off a brighter, softer look with a touch of elegance to go along with the mirror above it 


Decorating Fall on Buffet at One More Time Events.com

I love the new look of the the buffet.  I don't know why I didn't do it sooner.    What I really love most  is how these softer colors of Fall look on it.    

What colors do you use when decorating for Fall?   Do you stay with the traditional colors?  Or do you go with the natural colors of Fall?

Centerpiece using Natural Elements


Centerpiece using Natural Elements 


Hi Everyone, I'm  back to share another centerpieces using recycled glass 

Using natural elements and glass vases to create a centerpiece is one of my favorite things to do.  It's free,  its fast and it's  easy.  In my opinion there is nothing like a beautiful green bouquet of naturals arranged in clear glass vases.  Something about it just gives off a crisp, clean, and adds natural beauty to any space.










To see how easy this is  done pop over to Fine Craft Guild for a full tutorial on how you can bring the outside in.

Sometimes just a few pieces from the yard can lend you more than you think.  You love them in your yard, why not enjoy some of it  inside!

If you enjoyed this post and would like to see more like it… I would love it if you followed along!

Share it One More Time #2




Hi Everyone,  Hope you all have had a great week and your weekend is going to be even better!   It's been a pretty busy week here at One More Time Events, but I did manage to get a few things done that I have been putting off, like decorating and organizing the master bathroom    With the heat we've been having most of my projects have been inside, but to cool things down a bit, I have been whipping up some of my favorite refreshing drinks I shared the recipes here.
