Simple Sofa Slipcover

Hey there awesome Friends!! Today is a fun day because on the fourth Thursday of each month, not only do I share a furniture makeover, so do my Furniture Fixer Upper Friends! Be sure to look for the links to their makeovers at the bottom. My project for today is this yellow sofa my Mother-in-law passed on to my husband before we were married: It is not really my style, but my MIL does not buy cheap furniture and let me tell you, this sofa is the most comfortable spot to sit in our in … [Read more...]

XL Flatware Box Makeover

Hello amazing friends!! If ya'll have followed me for any length of time at all, you know I have a hard time passing up a few things. One of them is old flatware boxes. Imagine my delight when I happened upon the mother of all flatware boxes at the thrift store by my Mom's house a few months ago! I should have put a soda can in the picture so you could appreciate how huge this thing is! It is over two feet wide. It was $9.98 and immediately went into my cart. I've included a few … [Read more...]

Painted Kitchen Cabinets: Three Years Later

Hey Friends! One of my most popular posts is my kitchen cabinet painting tutorial where I shared step-by-step how I painted our kitchen cabinets three years ago. (Find it HERE.) I didn't show any short-cut, super easy method to brightening up a dark and dated kitchen, but what I did share is how I painted my cabinets the RIGHT way. Since then I've had several questions about how my kitchen cabinets are holding up. I've been wanting to share an update and I finally had the chance! Today I … [Read more...]

Roadside Footboard Repurposed

Welcome to my favorite day of the month, amazing friends! It's Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday and my friends and I are all sharing trashy makeovers! I love it when I actually have trash to share. I picked this footboard up off the curb on the way to my Mom's house in 2014: The only reason I know when it was is because I shared this picture on Instagram: That poor baby. He's like...no big deal, just a giant bed hanging over my head. There actually was a headboard and … [Read more...]

How to Update Outdoor Light Fixtures the EASY Way!

Hello sweet friends! Sometimes you have to put away the fun projects and tackle the necessary, less fun ones, right? I have been busy working on refreshing a few things around our house that have been neglected. On the list were these outdoor light fixtures we have hanging on either side of our garage and French doors in our bedroom: They get direct sun most of the day and the finish has become so faded. I've been telling my Hubby that I need him to take them down for me so I can spray … [Read more...]

Vintage Travel Case Update

Hello amazing friends! Today I'm sharing a fun find I scored at the thrift store by my Mom's house a couple of weeks ago. This cool vintage travel case was only $5: I was immediately drawn to its charm the minute I spied it, and it was in excellent condition. I decided to have some fun with pattern for this one... My dresser I shared on Thursday was the perfect prop. :) I created the harlequin pattern using a little trick folding paper...   Here are … [Read more...]

Serpentine Dresser Makeover

Hello lovely Friends, and welcome to the first day of June! I'm ready to get this Summer started, how about you? Today I'm sharing my first yard sale find of the season and what I did with it! If you've followed me for long, you know that I have been on a serious yard sale diet for the last two Summers. I had hoarded project pieces like crazy and needed to get rid of what I had. I have worked really hard to whittle that to-do pile down, so I earned a day of yard saling! I set out first … [Read more...]

Side Table Update

Happy Tuesday, Friends! I've got a pretty little makeover to welcome you back after the long weekend. I spied this petite side table at the thrift store when I was on my way out the door last week: It was marked $34.95, but all furniture was 20% off and I had a $5 off coupon, so not too bad for $23. If you saw my armoire makeover on Thursday, you might remember the drawers on the inside got the striped treatment, and I decided to go with the same look for this little table as … [Read more...]

Armoire Makeover

Hey there sweet Friends! I am back today with my Furniture Fixer Upper girls, and we are all sharing furniture flips! I am excited to see what my friends have transformed. Look for their projects at the bottom. :) I'm sharing an armoire I picked up at the thrift store for $75 a couple of months ago. You may remember this photo I shared on my Facebook page when I found it: It was showing some age for sure, but a steal at $75! I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the … [Read more...]
