A look at the best repurpose projects of 2022 from the Thrift Store Decor Team will have you looking for something to upcycle.
The Best Repurpose Projects of 2022
Each team member has selected their favorite projects of the year from the other members and we also have photo links to 100 of our thrift store makeovers of 2022.
Recycled Floral Centerpiece
I'm starting with a piece I upcycled in January of 2022 because it fits the season. I recycled a fresh floral centerpiece gifted to us by our sweet neighbor. After the fresh flowers died I re-used the wood box and florist foam and added fresh greenery and a single large candle, finishing it off with a bow for a totally new look. You can find the complete tutorial here...How To Upcycle A Floral Centerpiece After The Flowers Die
Vintage Wooden Clothes Hanger Upcycle
I love the extra touches Carlene of Organized Clutter added to this project like the metal date holder and the old photo. Simple things like that really make a project work! See the vintage hanger frame here.
Recycled Picture Frame
This beautiful DIY pressed flower art using a picture frame, hot glue, and dried flowers was created by my friend Kristin at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia and you can see the tutorial here.
Miniature Ornament Hanger DIY
I've ran into this problem before.....ornament hangers that are bigger than the ornaments. Sarah, Sadie Seasongoods, took large ornament hooks and shaped them into cute little hangers for mini ornaments. See how she made them here.
Thrifty Wire Basket Makeover
Spray paint can work wonders on anything. Maryann, Domestically Speaking, turned a tacky wire basket into a designer piece with spray paint and a block of wood. Her tutorial is here.
Upcycled Decorative Wicker Trunk
I bet you remember these old wicker trunks from a well known Home Decor Store. They came in all different sizes and styles but are sooooo outdated now. Christy, Our Southern Home, found a way to make her Goodwill find fresh and modern. See here tutorial here for the details.
Repurposed Melamine Trays
You guys know this project is right up my alley. I love the bold colors of the melamine plates and who doesn't need a tiered stand! Pam, House of Hawthornes, put the tray together and you can find the details here.
Galvanized Tub Garden Organizer
This garden tool/supplies organizer is cute....and functional. I have a thing for galvanized tubs and usually have a couple around with plants in them. I may need to copy this project by Suzanne, My Shop at Blu. See how she put it all together here.
Outdated Chandelier Planter DIY
Looking at Gail's project has me longing for Spring and Winter isn't even here yet. I've upcycled several old chandelier's because there are so many things you can do with them. I really like this planter and you can find the how-to at My Repurposed Life here.
Wood Cake Stand Project
Cindy, Reinvented Delaware, started with a simple wood plate and made a pretty cake stand. The stenciled design is perfect and I'm a sucker for stained wood and white paint all in one place. Find the details of the cake stand here.
