Revisiting a Dated Dresser Makeover

Hello sweet Friends! Summer is well under way here and I hope you are taking time to enjoy some sunshine where you are. My oldest will be turning 15 in September and I am coming to the realization that sadly, this may be our last Summer with him actually wanting to hang out here with me and my youngest son. Too soon he will be off doing his own thing with his friends...boohoo! SO I really want to make the moments count this Summer, and with that I hope you don't mind if I sprinkle in a … [Read more...]

Serpentine Dresser Makeover

Hello lovely Friends, and welcome to the first day of June! I'm ready to get this Summer started, how about you? Today I'm sharing my first yard sale find of the season and what I did with it! If you've followed me for long, you know that I have been on a serious yard sale diet for the last two Summers. I had hoarded project pieces like crazy and needed to get rid of what I had. I have worked really hard to whittle that to-do pile down, so I earned a day of yard saling! I set out first … [Read more...]

Side Table Update

Happy Tuesday, Friends! I've got a pretty little makeover to welcome you back after the long weekend. I spied this petite side table at the thrift store when I was on my way out the door last week: It was marked $34.95, but all furniture was 20% off and I had a $5 off coupon, so not too bad for $23. If you saw my armoire makeover on Thursday, you might remember the drawers on the inside got the striped treatment, and I decided to go with the same look for this little table as … [Read more...]

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.

Hello sweet Friends! I have the cutest little table and chair set to share with ya'll today!

Unfinished Wood Console Table Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! I'm so glad you stopped by today!

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...]
