In this video, Deidre, the host of ‘Our Upcycled Life,’ shares a variety of content related to thrifting, upcycling, repurposing, and DIY projects.

She presents an exciting showcase of various items she found in a dump and transformed into beautiful outdoor decor. The video is packed with inspiration and techniques that she’ll share with you. So let’s dive in!

Deidre discovered some fabulous candle lanterns at the dump. Despite being dirty and sun-bleached, they were still in good shape.

With a simple process, she cleaned them up and gave them a fresh look. Deidre removed the handle from one lantern and used masking tape to protect the metal piece from spray paint.

After applying a light coat of white spray paint, she achieved a sun-bleached appearance, restoring the lanterns to their former beauty. With a glass votive holder and a homemade candle made from a tuna tin, she completed the lanterns, which are now ready to be placed on her patio.

Next, Deidre found an old lantern in the scrap metal bin. Although it was rusty, she admired its character and decided to preserve the rust rather than painting it.

She used engine enamel to seal and protect the rust, giving the lantern a glossy finish that made the rust color stand out. For another project, she repurposed a tin can she had made in a previous video by decoupaging a homemade napkin on top of it.

This transformed the can into a decorative piece that perfectly fit inside the lantern. With an ivy plant added, the completed lantern became a beautiful addition to her front porch.

Deidre came across an old birdhouse in need of some care. She noticed that the paint was worn off, and some nails had come loose.

To restore it, she hammered in the loose nails and sanded the surface with 80 grit sandpaper. Then, she painted it with yellow paint, giving the birdhouse a fresh look. To add a rustic touch, she used a salt painting technique on the roof, creating a chippy appearance. The birdhouse was sanded again once everything had dried.

Deidre embellished it by attaching an old door pull and a dresser drawer pull, which served as focal points. The finished product looked far better than its original state and was ready to welcome some birds.

Deidre combined several items she had found to create a unique planter. She had a wire basket, a wooden trivet, and an old spindle from a table.

After giving the wire basket and trivet a coat of black spray paint, she drilled a hole in the trivet and screwed it onto the spindle. Using staple nails, she attached the basket to the top of the spindle, creating a sturdy planter.

This project was a great example of how Deidre’s habit of holding onto items paid off, as she could repurpose them later on.

In the final project, Deidre upcycled a glass coffee jar and a solar light from the dollar store. She started by priming the glass jar and then applied accent stone spray paint to add texture.

Removing the stake from the solar light, she filled the jar with gravel and secured the light in place using E6000 adhesive.

To enhance its appearance, she added twine around the jar’s neck. The solar light would illuminate the jar beautifully once the sun went down.
