Sewing Cabinet Side Table

Sewing-Cabinet-turned-Side-Table

Woohoo day #5! Are you enjoying March Madness so far? I hope so because I sure am! Today's thrift store deal was this sewing cabinet that I picked up for $9.95. It has definitely seen better days: The top folds out to the side to reveal a work table and a space for a sewing machine. I love sewing tables as side tables because they are a great height. Here is her makeover: Paint is like magic in a can! I sanded this a bit more than I usually do, but I thinks it's … [Read more...]

If you've been following March Madness, welcome back! It's day #4 of my 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 Days! Today I'm sharing what I did with the goldalicious pineapple lamp I received in my Swap it Like it's Hot package.

I told you yesterday that it was no longer gold and it was no longer a lamp. Both are … [Read more...]

Spring Tulip Basket

Since my 31 days of thrifty madness is starting this Sunday, I have thrifty on the brain, so I incorporated a little thriftiness into this project. You can easily guess which part was thrifted, right? You probably said the basket and you would be … [Read more...]

Give a hutch a whole new look for less than $5 with scrapbook paper!

Hi friends and welcome back to the three-month decorating challenge, where I and five of my favorite blogger friends were challenged to decorate a space three different ways for three months! The catch is that we can only use what we already have. (I cheated...a teeny tiny bit.) I chose my hutch circa 1999: Which I painted a couple of years ago...as a reminder, here it was at Christmas: And you may remember I decided to keep the ironstone and keep it clean and fresh with a … [Read more...]

Updated Side Table with Fabric Drawer

Update a side table by adding fabric to the drawer/s

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing a great way to give furniture a new look. I found this ho-hum side table at the Salvation Army for $15: What I liked about this table besides the price, were the details in the corners below the drawer. Pieces like this are fantastic because they are like a blank canvas. There are just so many ways you could update this simple table. I chose to paint it (surprise!) and add fabric to the drawer: You know I should own stock in this fabric.  It … [Read more...]
