Coastal Cottage End Table Makeover

Hi Friends! I'm so glad you stopped in for a visit today. Luckily I haven't melted away in this heat...our thermometer reached 102 yesterday! That is really hot around my neck of the woods. I have mentioned a lot lately that I am working really hard to work through the pieces in my to-do pyramid in the garage (aka I'm on a thrift store/yard sale diet), and you'll see why soon. This end table had been buried in there for quite some time: I had just snapped this quick photo and then … [Read more...]

Turn $5 in Thrift Store Parts into Functional Décor!

Hi there, awesome Friends! Jack sends a huge thank you for all the super sweet comments on his plant stand makeover I shared on Tuesday! He was grinning form ear to ear. Are ya'll up for another thrifty makeover today? I thought you might be. They're my favorite too! This one was actually a collaboration between me and Jack. He dug through my to-do pyramid and pulled out a little shelf I found at the thrift store for two dollars a while back and started going to town painting it. Then I … [Read more...]

Jack’s Plant Stand Update

Hey there sweet Friends! Today I'm sharing another one of Jack's makeovers. I picked this oak plant stand up for him at the thrift store for $10 a few weeks ago: I figured he could paint this up pretty quick and simple and make some easy money on it, but he wanted to do a two toned look and add a stencil. He chose the colors and the stencil. (You know, Mom, that symbol you use with the three things on it.) Here it is: I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the … [Read more...]

Decorating with Thrifty Finds {a Décor Challenge}

It's no secret that I love scouring thrift stores, yard sales and estate sales (oh and don't forget the side of the road!) for amazing finds, but I usually bring them home, transform them and send them on their way.

Let's start with the entry, shall we? When you … [Read more...]

$5 Yard Sale Buffet Makeover

Hi Friends, and welcome to Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday!! Sharing a good trash-to-treasure project is my favorite, and today's project was pretty trashy: The top was a hot mess: On my ONE AND ONLY day yard saling this season so far (Can you believe that?? Desperately trying to be good and clear out my garage!), I was having very little luck...until I happened upon this one sale that had this buffet. I'm calling it a buffet, but it is likely the bottom portion to a china cabinet. I … [Read more...]

Mmmmm...French Provincial. I just love the lines of these pretty pieces. Hey there, Friends. I have a simple makeover for ya'll today. I picked up this pretty end table for $20 about six months ago and have been waiting for inspiration to strike. I finally decided I just needed to get it out of the garage.
