Decoupaged Paper Mosaic Rolling Cart

Decoupaged Paper Mosaic Table Top

Welcome to Furniture Themed Thursday, where a bunch of my DIY loving friends and I share a themed furniture makeover. This month's theme is decoupage! My favorite decoupage redo is this dresser I found at a yard sale for $20.  This time I thought I would try paper instead of fabric. This is what I had to work with: Lovely, right?  He he...the little table was one of my Lucketts trip finds last year, a $2 Yard sale table I found at a yard sale on our way there.  The frame is from a … [Read more...]

Hand-Made Baby Shower Gifts

Baby-Shower-13

I am really close to my younger brother, largely due to the fact that I was responsible for looking after him a lot when we were kids. Honestly though, I loved to play with him whether I had to or not. He was such a sweet little boy. He's six years younger, but the age gap makes no difference these days. He can always bring a smile to my face. This past weekend I took a little road trip with my parents and my 11-year-old, to SC for he and his wife's baby shower. Today I'm going to share … [Read more...]

French Graphics Revive a $5 Yard Sale Find

Picture Updated with French Graphics

Hey everyone! If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen the goodies I found on my first official yard saling day this season. Can you believe I have been able to hold myself back this long?? My garage and I aren't exactly on speaking terms right now, so I've had to cut back. I have stopped by a couple of yard sales here and there on the way to where I was supposed to be going, but this was my first day of saying, "To heck with it!" and setting out to shop for bargains! I found two dated … [Read more...]

George’s Bench gets a Makeover

Harlequin Bench {Including howto create the perfect harlequin pattern}

Hi friends! I'm so glad you stopped by today. I'm sharing how I freshened up George's bench.  George was the previous owner of this sad, but super functional bench: I found it at his estate sale in the corner of the garage covered in cobwebs.  I know his name because he put it on the bottom: I love that.  I was drawn to this little bench because clearly it was hand-built and I loved all the imperfections. I decided to paint it with a fun harlequin pattern... I used … [Read more...]

Beachy Bathroom Makeover

Beach Inspired Bathroom Makeover

  I've got a room makeover to share today! My boys' bathroom was renovated and then decorated in a mad rush before my sister and her family came to visit a few years ago. I've never been happy with it, so I decided to work on it. When I moved in, I painted the walls with an oops paint I used in my last house, hung a new curtain and threw some pictures up on the walls. Here's what it looked like: Pretty fabulous huh? We even had fancy clear plastic towel bars and a matching toilet … [Read more...]

Old Thrift Store Frames Become New Treasures

Old Thrift Store Frames become New Treasures!

One of my favorite spaces to decorate is a bathroom.  It's a small space so even on a tight budget, you can make it great.  You can have fun with it too, and it doesn't even have to match the rest of the house, especially in a kid's bathroom! Our Get Your DIY On party is coming up this Sunday and this month's theme is Room Revamps. We redid our boys' bathroom before I started blogging, and because my sister and her family were coming in town, I quickly threw stuff up on the walls.  I've made … [Read more...]

Coastal-Inspired Kid’s Table

Coastal Inspired Kid's Table

Well hello! Do you follow me on Facebook? {You really should.} I share all kinds of little fun things on there that don't make it here, like this little kid's table I found at a local online yard sale FB page a little while back. I had been searching and searching for something sturdy to replace a cheaply made table I had purchased for my son a couple of years ago, and this looked perfect! It was $50, which is more than I wanted to spend but it was solid. It had also lasted through the … [Read more...]

Sewing Chair with a {top secret} Drawer

Sewing Chair with a Secret Compartment

Hi friends! How about a fun makeover today? Every month a few blog friends get together to share fun furniture makeovers.  The catch is, there is a theme! Some of our previous themes have been: Metallic, Bold, Flowers, and Travel.  This month's theme is NUMBERS! There are a lot of ways to incorporate numbers into a piece of furniture, and this chair was the perfect candidate for this challenge: I found it this sad little chair at a yard sale for $5. There wasn't anything exciting … [Read more...]

15 Ordinary Items Repurposed

15 Ordinary Items Repurposed 1

Today I'm digging through my archives to bring you 15 ordinary items that I gave an entirely new life to.  You might never look at these ordinary items the same way again! 1. This was the drawer to the awkward "hump" in our babies' changing table. When we cut the hump off, this was left: I turned it into a mini bookcase to hold my son's books: Fun Drawer Upcycle 2. I found this painting at a yard sale for $2: I replaced the painting with chicken wire and added fresh paint to … [Read more...]
