Upcycled Retro YELLOW CONVEX Eagle MIRROR | Etsy

FACT AND FICTION: FACT: I love these convex mirrors as whimsical accent wall pieces. Also I enjoy taking a traditional themed object like this and painting it an unexpected color. This cheerful little piece of whimsy will add a smile to your face every time you look at your distorted face in its mirror. It would make a great dorm gift. This is a one of those plastic molded pieces from the 60's. Ready to hang. 13"T x 8"W FICTION: Shelby grew up with the Eagle mirror, so she was shocked when…

Upcycled ASIAN DOLL BOOKENDS

FACT AND FICTION: FACT: I have a special love of odd little upcycled bookends. Whenever I see an abandoned pair of bookends or pairs of kitsch dolls or figures I snatch them up, bring them to the studio and add them to my trove until just the right pieces come together. These dolls were so adorable. I sprayed some vintage wood bookends a hot aqua color and here they are. 8"H x 4"D FICTION: Lulu only shut her eyes to go to sleep after gazing for a moment at the little dolls on her bookshelf…

Upcycled Black GIANT TIKI Eating UTENSILS | Etsy

FACT AND FICTION: FACT: Gotta smile when I see these huge Tiki spoons and forks. They're so kitschy and so mid century. I painted them black to make them a bit more mod and to make them P O P on the wall. Ready to hang. 22"H x 4"W FICTION: Truth be told, Julie hated all things Tiki, but when she saw George's little flat, all tricked out with Tiki kitsch, and when George served her a mai tai wearing his little sarong, well......needless to say, she began warming up to the theme.

Upcycled AQUA INDUSTRIAL BOOKENDS | Etsy

FACT and FICTION: FACT: A pair of recycled, repurposed, vintage bookends. I sprayed them with automobile primer, then a coat of bright aqua paint, stenciled some white industrial numbers on them, and then distressed them a bit. Because these are vintage, and I collect them, piece by piece, the bottoms may be mismatched, and the shape may alter ever so slightly, but the size and overall style will be consistent. 9"H x 6"W FICTION: One day Marnie would leave this crazy town and head up the…

UPCYCLED Small ORANGE Clothes HAMPER | Etsy

FACT AND FICTION: FACT: When in doubt, paint it orange. That's one of my mottos. I loved the tiny footprint size of this vintage clothes hamper and think it would be a great piece for a tiny home or a studio apartment. In good used vintage condition. 27"x11"x11" FICTION: George wondered why Rebecca was so adamant that he put his used towels in the orange hamper. What about the green or the yellow or the red or the blue? Who or what were those hampers for?

UPCYCLED Crazy BOWLER TROPHY Wood Bowl by orangedoorcottage on Etsy

UPCYCLED Crazy BOWLER TROPHY Wood Bowl

FACT AND FICTION: FACT: My followers know that I love playing with old trophies. This crazy bowling trophy must have been for the most gutter balls. I disassembled it and reassembled it on a nice little vintage Walnut Bowl, hand turned by Solid Missouri Walnut in Lebanon, MO., probably in the 60's. The bowl is 7"W x 2"T, perfect size for peanuts or party snacks. This would be a great trophy or gift for an avid beginning bowler. FICTION: Peggy wasn't the most graceful bowler on the league…

UPCYCLED Neon HORSE TROPHY

FACT AND FICTION: FACT: I've gone a little wild in upcycling this vintage horse trophy. Painted it a bright neon Day-Glo, color added a little sassy posing vintage teenage girl (she's detachable), and where the recipient's name was I applied a few scrabble letters to spell FAN. You can replace them easily with someone's name, or a word of your choice (I won't customize it....it comes as shown) The F A N letters are held in place with museum putty so easy to remove, if needed. I see this as a…

Upcycycled vintage RACING STRIPE BOOKENDS by orangedoorcottage on Etsy

Upcycycled vintage RACING STRIPE BOOKENDS

FACT AND FICTION FACT: They've been around forever, but never like this. I rescue these metal bookends and give them a coat of automobile primer, some beachy blue paint and some neon green racing stripes. The racing stripes are vinyl and can be easily removed if you want to change them out, later. Give your library a little neon industrial chic uplift. Because I collect these, as I find them, there may be a very slight variation in shape, but the basic style will be consistent. They will…

Upcycled RACING STRIPE ORGANIZER

FACT: You've seen them around...these industrial metal organizers that most schools and libraries still have. I collect them and upcycle them in different ways and colors. This one I sprayed with a beachy blue and then added neon vinyl green racing stripes. If you tire of the stripes, you can just peel them off. I finished it by padding the base with orange felt. 7"H x 5"W x 6 1/2"D FICTION: Chuck took Emily away for a romantic weekend, or so he thought. When he checked into the hotel…

Up Cycled Cheeky Chic PINK METAL BOOKENDS | Etsy

FACT AND FICTION: FACT: You've seen them around...these industrial metal bookends. They held books in schools and libraries since way back when. I enjoy rescuing then, painting them and giving them new life. The contrast of baby pink and little mod flowers with the industrial shape makes for some pretty cheeky chic decor. These are previously used so they may show signs, here and there, of their previous life. They will all have padded bases, even if I have to hand-cut felt and glue it on…

Up Cycled KITSCH FOOZBALL Player BOX

FACT AND FICTION: FACT: It's true that sometimes things hang around my studio for a year or maybe three, just waiting for the right thing to do with it. This great little wall box, made by some guy back in the 50's to hold ? , I don't know, maybe matches. Then this Fooz Ball Man.....which I totally love, don't ask me why. I added some girl doll arms, turned at an awkward angle and attached the man to the box to make a sort of shrine to Foozball. The lid to the box only partially opens (see…

LARGE Up Cycled Vintage TAPE DISPENSER/ orange w/ green racing stripe by orangedoorcottage on Etsy

LARGE Up Cycled Vintage TAPE DISPENSER/ orange w/ green racing stripe

FACT AND FICTION: FACT: I love finding these old heavy industrial tape dispensers: I always have a fight with myself over what color t paint the. Orange won the color prize for this one, then the green racing stripe. The racing stripe is vinyl, so if you feel like getting rid of it later you can just peel it off. This is a nice heavy dispenser, meant for holding large spools like masking tape or blue tape. 5 1/2"H x 3 1/2"D x 9 1/4"W FICTION: Racing stripes were a personal obsession of Hank…
