Outdoor Glider Bench Makeover

Hi lovely friends! I told you the other day that I've been spending several days working outdoors and today I'm sharing a project that was very much overdue. I purchased this outdoor glider bench about six or seven years ago: Isn't it just pitiful? I covered the cushions once before about three years ago, and it was time to do it again! I've included affiliate links so you can find the products I used. Here's my new and improved outdoor glider bench now: Doesn't it look brand … [Read more...]

80’s Clock Cabinet Reimagined

Is it really day #13?? How did we get here so fast? March is flying by! Not to worry though , I still have 18 more fantastic thrifty makeovers on their way! :) Let's get to today's makeover...this clock from the heart of the 80's.

I told you the other day I rarely pass up little cabinets since they are … [Read more...]

DIY Jewelry Storage

Hello Lovelies and welcome back to this fun makeover series! We made it a whole week woohoo! Today is number seven and I'm sharing what I did with these pretty aqua dishes I just could not leave behind at the thrift store: I was so smitten with them, and for 75¢ a piece I scooped them right up, having no clue what I was going to do with them. I decided on a plan for three of these pieces, along with a set of candlesticks (only one pictured) that I picked up marked down to 48¢ each on … [Read more...]

Patterned Sofa Table

We made it to day #3 yippee! Ha ha...I'm sharing a sofa table I found at a yard sale in my own neighborhood last Spring for $10.  I bought it from the same lady I bought this $60 hutch from. It was solid and I knew I could do something with it eventually. Well eventually is here and I finally got around to doing something with it! Here it is as you may have seen in the sneak peek I gave you yesterday: I started by sanding the top with the intention of staining it and painting the legs. … [Read more...]

Mini Shelf Makeover

Hi friends! Welcome back to day #2 of my March Madness Series! I've got a sweet little mini shelf makeover that I'm sharing today. I found this last Summer at the thrift store for $3 whole dollars and it has long sold in my booth, but I never got a chance to share it. Here it is as I found it: A little homely, but I thought it could be sweet painted. It got a new beadboard backing and a fresh new paint job that gave it an entirely new feel. This frumpy dated little mini shelf is … [Read more...]
