Rosette-Framed Mirror

Rosettes made from drop cloth

Hi friends! Today I have a sweet makeover for you! Last weekend I found this mirror at a thrift store: Nothing fancy, but it was in good shape and for $15 I figured at the very least I could paint it. But then just as I was dozing off I had an idea! I really need to put a post it pad under my pillow because that always happens. Yesterday I gave a little hint... I did paint it, but I also added drop cloth rosettes to it! How cute is that? I made the same … [Read more...]

How to Shop Your Home {A Three Month Decorating Challenge}

Three Month Decorating Challenge: Shopping Your Home

Welcome to the three-month decorating challenge where I and a few favorite blogging friends are going to share ideas on how to decorate using what you already have! This will be a challenge for me because I like to decorate a space, a surface, whatever it may be and that's how it stays. I do that mostly because it costs money to keep changing things up, but how nice would it be to be able to change things up without spending a dime, by shopping the house? That's exactly what my friend … [Read more...]

The Perfect Solution to Organizing Toys

The Best Way to Organize Toys (at least a really awesome way)

Little did I know that the perfect solution to organizing my son's toys had been in my garage for eight months. Last spring, I stopped at a yard sale on my way to wherever I was supposed to be going and found these: Actually there were three of them leaning up against a fence, and when the guy said $5 for all three, I snapped them up. I figured I could take them apart and make something else with them eventually. But there they sat taking up valuable real estate in the  garage. I … [Read more...]

French Secretary Desk

French Secretary Desk

Welcome to Themed Furniture Thursday, where I and several other furniture redoers make over a piece of furniture to fit a different theme each month! This month's theme is "Inspired By". I'll share how I was inspired a little further down. First, check out this piece I found at my local Goodwill last spring: Pretty, right? I originally walked out of the store without it and headed to another thrift store down the road a bit. When I got there, I saw the saddest secretary desk, very … [Read more...]

Upholstering a French Provincial Chair

How to Upholster a French Provincial Chair

Who out there has a chair in need of a serious wardrobe change? I do I do! Or at least I did. My Mom passed on a set of French Provincial chairs to me that she picked up at an estate sale. They were so bad, ya'll. Many of you know exactly what chairs I'm referring to. These lovelies: Only they weren't always so lovely... Were they? If you can't tell, the fabric has a terrible paint job. I posted this makeover back in the fall and I had many requests to see the how-to on the … [Read more...]

Grain Sack Bench

Grain Sack Bench

I'm sharing another well-deserved makeover today! It was part of this haul: That day included an estate sale, a few yard sales and one thrift store stop! The large picture on the left was a $5 yard sale find and became a huge chalkboard. The claw-foot console table (see the after here) was a $10 yard sale find and received a frenchy makeover. Both pieces sold in my booth  a while back. This is the 80's country charmer that's getting a makeover today: Ah...80's décor. We'll … [Read more...]

Dressing Table Bench Makeover

Dressing Table Bench

Hello friends! Have you ever peeled off wallpaper to reveal another layer underneath? And then another layer underneath? And so on? That was what happened to me only with a dressing table bench! My Mom picked this up at the same estate sale where she scored these amazing French provincial chairs. (Trust me, they did NOT start out amazing.) We had been together the day before and she went back for the chairs, so I sent her in after the bench as well since it was the last day and everything was … [Read more...]

Farmhouse Hutch Makeover

Farmhouse Hutch Makeover

I've got a pretty makeover to share with you today! You might remember me posting about a desk with French graphics that I redid this Fall. I purchased it at an estate sale at this lovely little beach cottage (if you're visiting from a mobile device, this picture is sideways and I don't know why sorry!): About six houses from the ocean...yes please! I bought several pieces from that sale including this pretty beat-up hutch. I found it in the shed being used for tools! What a crime … [Read more...]
