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...]

Yard Sale Drop Leaf Table

It's no secret that I love a good yard sale!  My hubby loves them too.  You heard that right, aren't I lucky?  No, he loves them because on Saturday mornings, I get up early and take the kids with me and he gets to sleep in...in a totally quiet house! (Then he can't complain when I come home with all my junk treasures!) A couple of weeks ago I had a stellar yard sale day. This is the cell photo I shared on Facebook: I added the prices to show how I got all these goodies for $28! Not … [Read more...]
