Numbered Tray

Hi sweet Friends! I'm back today as promised sharing what I did with this tray I found for $5 at the thrift store: I can't even tell you how long this has been hanging around my garage! When I did my super cleaning a few weeks ago, I found it again. Our Get Your DIY On theme this month is Numbered and Lettered projects so I knew this would be a great candidate for this challenge: I decide to fill the bottom with random numbers! I love how it turned out! I created … [Read more...]

French Linen Chair

Hello sweet Friends! I have a quickie makeover for ya'll today! I mentioned the other day when I shared my antique dressing table that I was working on a chair for it. This is that chair, only it's a bit higher than a chair so I'm calling it a stool...maybe I should just call it a chool ha ha. Here it is before. Meet the chool: It was a sad chool, but for $7.50 at the thrift store,  I dragged its sad little self home. I was going to paint it white to match the dressing table, but … [Read more...]

My Closet Makeover

Hey Friends! I've got a fun post to share with you today! Do you know what is hot hot hot on my blog right now, thanks to Pinterest? (Follow me here :) ) My Master Closet! Maybe it's all those freezing cold temps keeping us indoors (or 10ft snow drifts for some!) that get us thinking about what projects we want to tackle inside. Evidently, tackling the master closet is on a lot of people's minds lately. I redid my closet before I started blogging, and I first posted the makeover in early … [Read more...]

DIY Mini Storage Cabinet with Reclaimed Wood

Hello, awesome Friends! I'm back today with a fun little project for ya. A while back, my talented friend Wendi of H2O Bungalow pulled a group of us gals together who have little fear when it comes to power tools, in hopes of inspiring our readers who might want to give a few tools a try to go for it. Each month we share simple DIY projects that involve power tools, but that anyone can tackle! I look back at some of my earlier projects where I show my hubs cutting things for me and chuckle. I … [Read more...]

Shutter Shelf

Hello lovelies! I have a thrifty little redo for ya'll today! When I find something at a thrift store, I can almost always imagine the end product right then and there. But then there are times when I find something having no earthly idea what I'll do with it, but I throw it in my cart anyway. Those are the things that sit there in my to-do pyramid for months mocking me. I bought this shutter over TWO YEARS ago: People!! That's more than 24 months I had to dream up an idea for this … [Read more...]

Simple Sewing Table Makeover

Hello hello, lovely friends! Hope your year is off to a great start so far! Up for a little furniture redo today? I spied this sewing table at one of my favorite thrift stores before the Holidays (when I was supposed to be grocery shopping): I love these as side tables because they are the perfect height. This one was marked around $36. I passed on it one, because I was absolutely out of room in my garage and two, because it just wasn't cheap enough to justify trying to make space for … [Read more...]

The Evolution of My Thrifty Dining Room

Hello again awesome Friends!! How are you feeling this fine January morning? My Hubby can't make it till midnight, so I partied with my 13 year old and a bottle of sparkling cider ha ha. I'm kicking off the new year with the evolution of my dining room! Although this space is far from where it originally started, I've never shared any kind of before and after. That's probably because it evolved over time. Let's go way back to the beginning. When my Hubby and I met, we both owned our own … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Lamp Makeover

Are ya'll up for a quick makeover today? I'm sharing a thrift store lamp that I found several months ago. The lighting in my booth is very harsh, so I thought I would find a lamp or two to add a little softer lighting to my space. Here is the lamp I found for a few dollars: It had pretty lines, but came without a shade. I didn't realize how hard shades would be to come by, and I did not want to break down and buy new. Luckily I didn't have to.  I found this one for $3 a couple of … [Read more...]

All this week, my friends have been sharing Christmas ideas to get you pumped for the Holidays. I'll be sure to post the links to each festive idea at the bottom!
