MHCT&M: Creative Upcycled Craft Room Ideas

Hello friends! Welcome to another week of Must Have Craft Tips! 
 
Kara from Mine for the Making here this week to share Creative Upcycled Craft Room Ideas with you. I love a good upcycle or repurposed project and I love a pretty, organized craft room. 
Let's check out these unique solutions.

   

Upcycled Furniture 

I love taking something 'old' and making it new and fresh again. Especially furniture! Just add some elbow grease and lots of love, and you can turn any dingy piece of furniture into a focal point of your room. Here are a few of my favorite furniture transformations that are perfect for the craft room. Some are used for storage and others are used for work spaces.

Upcycled Projects for Organization and Decoration 

You would be surprised what you can use for organization and decoration. An old baby crib, a vintage crate, tin cans... So many options if you open your creative mind on alternative ways to use ordinary things. Let's check out some of my favorite up cycled projects for organizing and decorating your craft room.

  Repurposed frame to chic pincushion 

  
  Upcycled Crates to craft shelves

   
  Upcycled tray to magnetic board

  
  Upcycled bed spring to craft storage

  
  Repurposed tins to pencil holder

 
 Repurposed frame to thread holder   Such great ideas! Most times that I upcycle or repurpose something, I save money doing so and I love it so much more because of the effort put into it. Do you have any upcycled projects or pieces in your craft room? 



Join us next week for more tips on using upcycled ideas in your homes!

Million Dollar Brownies

Hi friends! It's Rachel from Adventures of a DIY Mom.  

Today I'm sharing one of my all-time favorite desserts: Million Dollar Brownies! What exactly are million dollar brownies? They are decadent fudgy brownies filled with chocolate, crunchy nuts, and a creamy caramel filling.  YUM!

Million Dollar Brownies

Million Dollar Brownies are a recipe that I remember my aunt making as a kid. We got the recipe from her and made them occasionally. It was always a special treat, since we didn't get them very often.

Million Dollar Brownies Recipe

With most desserts, I love to eat them warm. However, these are definitely better when left to cool completely before eating. It's so hard to wait...

This recipe is really easy! The hardest part: unwrapping the caramels. But that's what kids are for - they love to help.

Million Dollar Brownies Recipe:


Caramel Filling
1 {14oz} package of caramels - or about 50
1/3  c. evaporated milk
Unwrap all the caramels. Place in a microwave safe bowl and pour evaporated milk on top. Microwave until melted, stirring after each minute. Depending on your microwave this could take 3-5 minutes.

Brownie
1 German Chocolate cake mix
1/2 c. butter
1/3 c. evaporated milk
1 c. chopped walnuts
1 c. chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients except for chocolate chips together. Batter will be quite thick. Press 1/2 of the mixture into a 81/2 X 11 pan. Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Sprinkle on chocolate chips and pour on the caramel. Then place the rest of your brownie mixture on top. I find that the easiest way to do this is to take pieces of the batter, press it flat with my fingers and set it on top. It's ok if you have places where the caramel doesn't get completely covered. Bake an additional 15 minutes at 350. Let cool completely before eating.
