10 Upcycled Headboards

Hi there, sweet Friends!! One of the things I always look for at thrift stores is headboards. They can be repurposed and Upcycled in so many fun ways! They are almost like a blank canvas.

Click on each "After" photo or the link below it to take you to that post. Let's start with my first headboard project ever, this $5 yard sale find: I found this for $5 … [Read more...]

Outdoor Glider Bench Makeover

Hi lovely friends! I told you the other day that I've been spending several days working outdoors and today I'm sharing a project that was very much overdue.

I've included affiliate links so you can find the products I used. Here's my new and improved outdoor glider bench now: Doesn't it look brand … [Read more...]

Stool Revived

Hey there, awesome friends! Welcome to day#6 of March Madness! Today I'm sharing a simple stool makeover.  Please tell me I'm not the only one who chuckles at the word, "stool"? "Stool Makeover" is even funnier to me. Any who...I found this crusty and dusty stool (ha ha) in the same shed I dug my Farmhouse Hutch out of at an estate sale. Here is the before, crust and all: Only $2 and free crust? Yes I'll take it! After a little de-crusting and a some sanding and some painting and … [Read more...]

Grain Sack Bench

I'm sharing another well-deserved makeover today! It was part of this haul: That day included an estate sale, a few yard sales and one thrift store stop! The large picture on the left was a $5 yard sale find and became a huge chalkboard. The claw-foot console table (see the after here) was a $10 yard sale find and received a frenchy makeover. Both pieces sold in my booth  a while back. This is the 80's country charmer that's getting a makeover today: Ah...80's décor. We'll … [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...]

Antique Mini-Bench Makeover

Hi friends! I've got a quick makeover to share with you today.  I found this little antique bench at a yard sale for $5: Actually it was the same yard sale where I found my sewing  chair.  The owner had attempted to make it over using this burlap sack, which could have turned out okay if she had finished it right. I decided to go another direction with it though...   I had this small scrap of fabric left over from my fabric inlay dresser and it was just enough to … [Read more...]

George’s Bench gets a Makeover

Hi friends! I'm so glad you stopped by today. I'm sharing how I freshened up George's bench.  George was the previous owner of this sad, but super functional bench: I found it at his estate sale in the corner of the garage covered in cobwebs.  I know his name because he put it on the bottom: I love that.  I was drawn to this little bench because clearly it was hand-built and I loved all the imperfections. I decided to paint it with a fun harlequin pattern... I used … [Read more...]
