Fleur de Lis Dresser

Hey sweet Friends! And I'm back...again!  Today's makeover is #29 on our list and it's a good one, ya'll! I found this one at an estate sale at this quaint little cottage about six houses from the ocean: I bought a few pieces at that sale, including this farmhouse hutch and this desk, all of which I've redone and sold long ago...all except one. I went back on Sunday when everything was marked down and picked up this yellow dresser for $25: The price was right and it was in … [Read more...]

Reclaimed Wood Side Table

Welcome to day #28 in this thrifty makeover series! Can you believe it's day #28?? Where did March go? Today I'm proud to say that I eliminated yet one more thing that has been mocking me from my to-do pyramid. It started with these old decking boards I found in the woods near my house: I used some of them for the seat on this Headboard Bench I shared the other day: Farmhouse Headboard Bench And while they were fresh in my mind (and out from under a pile of junk that was on them … [Read more...]

DIY Bead Board Tray

Happy Easter, Friends! Last week when I shared my Romantic Flatware Box Makeover, I mentioned that one thing besides flatware boxes that I can't pass up is a good frame. I have a huge stack of them. Today is March Madness Thrifty Makeover #27 and up for a makeover today is, you guessed it, a frame! I spotted this pair of frames and knew immediately that they would make perfect trays, and trays always sell quickly in my booth. What was even better is that they were only $1.25 each!

Numbered Farmhouse Stool

I found a new thrift store about 20 minutes from my house last week and it was like Christmas morning! It benefits Disabled American Vets like one of my favorite thrift stores, and it was amazing!

I decided to stick with gray and white like my Farmhouse Headboard Bench I shared … [Read more...]

How to Cover a Lampshade

Time for thrifty Makeover #23, ya'll! What?? Only eight more left in this thrifty makeover series, but I've got some good ones still to come! Today's makeover is this rooster lamp that my Mom had brought over to sell at my neighborhood's annual yard sale last Spring: She was over the rooster thing and it no longer matched her kitchen, but she was undecided at the last minute whether she really wanted to sell it. She ended up leaving it at my house, and I decided to give it a … [Read more...]
