A Sign of Christ’s Love For Us

Christ’s Love for us

When we talk about the subject of Love, I am drawn to one topic, Christ’s love for us. The love God has shown us by sending His son, Jesus.  It may seem strange to you that I associate that with DIY, so let me try and explain.

We are excited to showcase our latest lamp makeover and New Year's project! There is always another way to benefit from shining new light on an old lamp.

A Lamp Makeover: Shining New Light on an Old Lamp

What better way to celebrate a new year than to give a lamp makeover? At Curbside Overhaul, we see repurposing as a metaphor for the hope in life. See, a lamp makeover doesn’t have to be just about the lamp, it’s about taking charge of your life and changing what doesn’t suit you. It’s all about new beginnings. Endings can be dark and sad, but they don’t have to be. New beginnings come in all shapes, but taking charge of those beginnings can really brighten up your life. We might not always be happy with ourselves, but we have the power, creativity, ability to change our circumstances. We can also do this with any piece of furniture or home decor that doesn’t quite fit.

We are excited to showcase our latest lamp makeover and New Year's project! There is always another way to benefit from shining new light on an old lamp.

Repurposing is a sure way to brighten up any future. In the case of this lamp makeover, you are saving these parts from the landfill. You also saving yourself money that you can invest other ways. Maybe the most important thing in our minds is that it also gives you an creative outlet. A lot of people tell us they’re not creative, but what is there to be worried about with an old piece you were going to throw out anyway.

Christmas time can be expensive but with these homemade Christmas decorations made with materials around the house, you can be festive even on a budget.

Homemade Christmas: DIY Decorations from Around the House

Our Homemade Christmas

I’m super excited because we have not one, not two, not even three, but four homemade Christmas decoration ideas to share with you today. Many of these homemade Christmas decorations can be made with the future in mind, so you can use them all year long. Another great thing about these projects is we tried to use things most people might have leftover from a different project or lying around their house. Most of these projects don’t require too much paint either, so if you have a little left in a jar or can, these are perfect to help you finish it off.

So let’s get started!

September’s Featured Restoring Organization- Corban’s Toy Drive

Corban’s Toy Drive

We’ve selected Corban’s Toy Drive to receive our proceeds as September’s Featured Restoring Organization. Curbside Overhaul’s mission is to restore purpose with paint and brush. Sometimes this paint and brush is literally in our hands, but we also want to help support other organizations restoring purpose in our state.

We've selected Corban's Toy Drive to receive our proceeds as September's Featured Restoring Organization. Donations are being collected until December 9th!

To do this, we decided each month we would donate 5 percent of our proceeds to a non-profit or organization working to restore their community.
