Hiya!!! I'm Sue Purdy; wife, mom of 3, incurable DIYer, thrift store treasure hunter, and lover of all things that make a home beautiful and functional. I love to transform a space using as little money as possible, from full remodels to fun and unique tablescapes. I live in Ontario, Canada with my wonderful husband, and 3 amazing daughters.
It’s a new year and we’re back for another month of the Thrift Store Challenge. I’m so happy to be back! I’ve been out of the blogging game for a bit and taken some time to spend with loved ones and doing some serious planning for future projects. However, in the meantime, I’m so glad to be participating in this fun monthly challenge with some blogging friends, and I’ll show you how I repurposed this old broken sled into fun winter decor. Huge SHOUT OUT to Amanda from Domestically Creative for hosting this amazing monthly challenge.

It’s no secret that I HATE winter…like a lot. I honestly don’t know why I live in Canada with it’s freezing temperatures and dead car batteries. But even the cold doesn’t stop me from putting together something cute for my living room.
This cute little sled started off as a typical baby sled from a thrift store that also happened to be broken. Come to think of it, that’s likely the reason why it was only $3.99!!!
The top piece was broken off and could easily be repaired with a bit of wood glue and some time. But, I thought the whole thing could look a little more like a vintage sled if I just took the top part off altogether.
Voila! Project completed. #easiestprojectever
One of my projects I’ve planned for 2018 is to add custom shelving over my sideboards that surround the living room fireplace. But, until then, I’m going to keep decorating for the seasons to my little heart’s content.
I simply added some fun shutters on both sides of the sled (which were also a thrift store find incidentally) and a cute little DIY wreath I made last Christmas, and it’s all ready to go.
Plus, I also got to use my fun little letterboard which was a Christmas gift last month, where I could add my real feelings about winter. So fun, right?
Thank you so much for following along and I’ll catch you later friends,
