15+ Ordinary Items Repurposed

Do you love a good repurpose like I do? I seriously love to see things brought back to life in new ways. Hey there, amazing Friends! Today I am rounding up 15+ ordinary items that I have repurposed in a new way.

French-Inspired Girl’s Table and Chair Set

Hello sweet Friends! I have the cutest little table and chair set to share with ya'll today! But first do you mind if I share my heart a bit?  We had to say goodbye to our sweet kitty, Holly on Friday. You may have seen her in photos from time to time. Most recently I was photographing this table I shared last Thursday: I didn't include this photo in that post, but took a few pics of her after she made herself comfy in the shot. I'm so glad now that I did. I shot this a couple of weeks … [Read more...]

Unfinished Wood Console Table Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! I'm so glad you stopped by today! Actually I'm so glad you stop by every day. :) Remember a week or so ago when I shared this little unfinished table that I painted, one my Dad had made several years ago? See that post HERE if you missed it. Well when I brought this home from my parent's attic, I also picked up its big sister: My parents and I did craft markets for about 15 or so years and these are tables my Dad built. My Mom would paint scenes on top of … [Read more...]

Painting Unfinished Wood Furniture

In a perfect world, every furniture piece I paint would have a dark brown stain to start since it is the perfect first layer for distressing. I really try to avoid already painted pieces mostly for that reason, but how about unfinished pieces? Yeah...don't usually care for those either. I mean if I can save myself some work, right? Hello sweet friends! Today I am sharing how I tackled one such unfinished piece. My parents and I used to do craft markets for about 15 years or so, and my Dad … [Read more...]

Antique Fixer Upper Table

Hello amazing friends! Today I am sharing a project that is long overdue. For my last craft market way back in 2013 (it was a sea of cottage white but you can see it HERE), my Mom decided to paint several pieces to sell too. She sold most of what she painted except for a few tables. One of the pieces was a quirky antique table. After it didn't sell at the market, she put it up in her attic. About a year later, she was cleaning up there and asked if I wanted to take the table and do something … [Read more...]

Hello awesome Friends! It's Thursday and if you saw my super sweet makeover on Tuesday, you know I'm back today sharing what I did with this pretty hutch: You may have seen this on my Facebook page last week along with some other fun finds I scored. I sold almost all the furniture I had left in my booth in January, so I needed furniture to flip, and fast! I decided to head out for a day of thrifting last Thursday. I stopped at seven stores and found a few treasures to help get me … [Read more...]

Girl’s Vanity set from an Antique Side Table

Hello amazing Friends! I have a fun little makeover for ya'll today! Are you up for something fun?? I spied this little antique side table at the thrift store a couple of months ago for $15: I should have taken a picture of a soda can next to it so you can see how petite it is. It really can't function well as a side table because it is just too small but I did like the shape of it. However, I decided to pass on it. A month later, I stopped in the same thrift store and it was still … [Read more...]
