Vintage Cane Club Chair Makeover


Hi Friends! Up for a little furniture redo today?  How about this pretty little cane club chair I picked up recently at the thrift store? I spied it at the Salvation Army on a Thursday for $44, and I really liked it so I asked the gal if they were having any sales any time soon.  She told me that all furniture would be 50% off on Saturday. Luckily it was still there! It ended up being only $22! Woo hoo. Now you might think you already know what fabric I used, right? Not this time. … [Read more...]

Yes I did just share a picture of my unmade bed with the world. :) I really didn't mind what I had up there. I was actually SO proud of it … [Read more...]

A New Sign from a Curbside Find


Hi lovely Friends! I was yard saling this Spring and from a mile away as I was nearing one particular yard sale, I spotted a trash pile on the curb. It was mostly old yard decor, but I also spied a few decent pieces of wood. Now how sad is it that I would be more interested in what these nice people were throwing away than what they were selling? I asked if it would be okay if I took the wood, and of course they were so nice about it, but it's much easier to take someone's trash when they're … [Read more...]

Fabric Inlaid Night Table


Hi Friends! On Tuesday I shared the makeover of one VERY brown dresser. As I was just about finished painting it, I realized I had a night table that had very similar lines. So I decided to make it a set. Here is the before: I picked this up for $12 at the thrift store a month or so ago. I loved the hardware and thought the detail on the top drawer would really stand out after a little paint. And I think it does...   The hardware was updated with Rustoleum spray … [Read more...]

Fabric Inlaid Dresser

This thrifty dresser got a whole new look with some paint and fabric!

Hi Friends!! Up for  a thrifty makeover today? Last weekend we decided to take our boys and my nephew to Ocean City, MD for the Holiday weekend. It was such a blast...we were total tourists ya'll and it was so fun! But when I got back and checked on my booth, it was very sad. I mean that in a good way...I had sold several furniture pieces including a huge hutch that left a big empty space. I needed to find a couple of big pieces to fill it back up, so I stopped by one of my favorite … [Read more...]
