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...]

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...]

Armoire Makeover

Hey there sweet Friends! I am back today with my Furniture Fixer Upper girls, and we are all sharing furniture flips! I am excited to see what my friends have transformed. Look for their projects at the bottom. :) I'm sharing an armoire I picked up at the thrift store for $75 a couple of months ago. You may remember this photo I shared on my Facebook page when I found it: It was showing some age for sure, but a steal at $75! I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the … [Read more...]

Coastal Tray Makeover

Hi Friends! Are you up for a thrifty makeover today? I found this super large oval tray at the thrift store  a few weeks back. This thing is really big! It was $12, but I just had to bring it home: This was gorgeous at one time, but had really started to show its age, so I decided to give it a completely new look: Doesn't even look like the same tray, right? I painted the tray in a mix of Annie Sloan's French Linen and Pure White. Then I created this graphic in Photoshop … [Read more...]

Estate Sale Dressing Table Makeover

I left the babes and hubby at home for  few hours last weekend to go thrifting since I am really in need of pieces for my booth. It was such a disappointing day, only finding this mirror, which actually ended turning out really cute. At the time though it was my only find after several stops until I came across an estate sale sign. I love estate sales! What's even better is when I walked in the front door, the lady who greeted me announced that everything was now 75%off! What's even better than … [Read more...]

Lacy-Drawer Side Table

Hello lovely friends, I've got another sweet makeover to share today! Take a look at this little fixer upper I found at the thrift store for $7: It's hard to tell by this photo, but it has a horrendous paint job and the black you see around the flower detail? It's ink pen.  The paint was put on so thick in areas that I knew I would have to either strip it or sand it. I chose the latter and gave it a good sanding with my orbital sander before repainting. Here is its sweet … [Read more...]

Duck Egg Blue and White China Cabinet

Guess what time it is? Time for Themed Furniture Thursday!!  Are you excited? Because I am excited to share my makeover with you! This month's theme was "two-toned". My harlequin bench that I just shared last week would have been a perfect project for this theme with its yummy Paris Grey against bright white. However I have another piece to share today... A china cabinet! I found this beauty just as it was being rolled out onto the floor of a local thrift store. I waited … [Read more...]

Harlequin Bench with Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan

Can I tell you how excited I was to receive these in the mail? I was provided these products, but all of the opinions are my own.  I am required to tell you that, but of course it's not hard to rave about Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan.  I haven't met a color in her collection that I haven't liked yet. This is the little guy getting the big makeover today. I found him at a church flea market for $15. I love those! And here is his beauty shot: I chose the … [Read more...]

Coastal-Inspired Kid’s Table

Well hello! Do you follow me on Facebook? {You really should.} I share all kinds of little fun things on there that don't make it here, like this little kid's table I found at a local online yard sale FB page a little while back. I had been searching and searching for something sturdy to replace a cheaply made table I had purchased for my son a couple of years ago, and this looked perfect! It was $50, which is more than I wanted to spend but it was solid. It had also lasted through the … [Read more...]

Sewing Chair with a {top secret} Drawer

  Hi friends! How about a fun makeover today? Every month a few blog friends get together to share fun furniture makeovers.  The catch is, there is a theme! Some of our previous themes have been: Metallic, Bold, Flowers, and Travel.  This month's theme is NUMBERS! There are a lot of ways to incorporate numbers into a piece of furniture, and this chair was the perfect candidate for this challenge: I found this sad little chair at a yard sale for $5. There wasn't anything … [Read more...]
