Clash of the DIY-tans: Riverton DI Grand Opening

Before and After, DIY & Crafts

For my latest furniture project, I have the wonderful opportunity to team up with these lovely ladies, Jami from Jami Ray Vintage and Sausha from Sweet Pickins to promote the grand opening of the Riverton Utah Deseret Industries AKA DI Thrift store. This DI grand opening is going to be a big event with some friendly competition and DIY projects.

DI Grand Opening

To spice things up a bit we are competing with each other in the Clash of the DIY-tans. Let the battle begin!

DIY competition for DI Grand Opening

Each of us have bought a piece from DI and we are refinishing it for the DI grand opening.  At the grand opening on October 26th – 28th you will be able to vote for your favorite piece and the winner will receive $1000 to a charity of their choice.  I have chosen Operation Underground Railroad.  These men and women risk their lives every day to save children from sex trafficking. They are an AMAZING charity!!!!!!

What does O.U.R. do exactly? Check out our newest video on how we are fighting sex trafficking by rescuing and rehabilitating children around the world. Spread the word- share this video to help us #EndHumanTrafficking

DIY Piece

Here is the piece I chose… a real looker right?  This piece was only $35 and has great potential so I decided to take it home with me. One thing that is really nice about the DI is that you can find some amazing furniture to refinish that is great quality. If you are looking for a project piece, this a fantastic place to pick something up. If you need help picking out and refinishing a piece, you can sign up for my FREE furniture e-course here. It’ll be sent right to you!

DIY Curio Refinish

First, I took everything apart and got rid of the glass… cause let’s be honest for a minute… curios are a bit out of style! Making this furniture more usable and appealing is a definite priority!

DIY Curio Refinish

I replaced all of the glass with beadboard.
