Up-Cycled Bicycle Planter Box

Up-Cycled Bicycle Planter Box

Hi Friends! For anyone who has ever wondered where we get our LOVE of up-cycling from… well, look NO FURTHER! My grandparents taught us everything we know. They are old-school up-cyclers…. They were up-cycling when up-cycling wasn’t even COOL! Like, it wasn’t even a thing back then. But they did it and did it well, and are still doing it to this day!

I don’t always post their projects, but this one was so cute, I couldn’t help myself. They have been hard at work making this fun little planter box to put their “Watch For Children” sign in at the front of our driveway. (They are always making sure their grandbabies stay safe)

This little bike originally belonged to our oldest son, and it made its way through 2 more of our kiddos before it finally BIT THE DUST. It actually had a little help from daddy’s truck, but oh well… they had to learn the hard way not to leave their bikes in the driveway. (It was the first, and will hopefully be the last time they will make that mistake)Continue reading

This season has been the BUSIEST season that we have EVER had here at Chelette’s Decor & More! We have been working 7 DAYS A WEEK in order to try to make our way through our orders so we can have them completed, and to their new homes BEFORE Christmas. Continue reading

We Are Up-Cycling This Old Door Into A Coffee Table

We Are Up-Cycling This Old Door Into A Coffee Table

Hi Friends! This is our NEWEST Up-Cycling project! This old door was dropped off to us yesterday by a client. It came from a her husband’s home that he grew up in as a child. So, it is a SENTIMENTAL piece for their family. Since they no longer needed it to be used as a door, they asked if we could use it to make a COFFEE TABLE. That way, he would still have a piece of his OLD home, in his NEW home. 

Well, we jumped all over this OPPORTUNITY! Y’all know how much we LOVE to take old pieces, and turn them into something NEW! It is such a PASSION of ours to have the opportunity to breathe NEW LIFE INTO OLD PIECES. Especially, when they are sentimental and have a heartfelt meaning behind them! 

So, KEEP AN EYE OUT for pictures of our finished product. We PROMISE…it will be UNRECOGNIZABLE!
