$5 Yard Sale Buffet Makeover

Hi Friends, and welcome to Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday!! Sharing a good trash-to-treasure project is my favorite, and today's project was pretty trashy: The top was a hot mess: On my ONE AND ONLY day yard saling this season so far (Can you believe that?? Desperately trying to be good and clear out my garage!), I was having very little luck...until I happened upon this one sale that had this buffet. I'm calling it a buffet, but it is likely the bottom portion to a china cabinet. I … [Read more...]

Shutter Cabinet Makeover

Are ya'll ready for a thrifty makeover today? I hope so! It's day #11 in this fun thrifty series, and I hope you are enjoying it so far! :) Today I'm sharing the makeover of an awesome shutter cabinet I grabbed just as it was being put out at one of the thrift stores near my Sister's house. ( There may or may not have been some stalking involved.) I knew paint would easily revive this dated looking thing... ...into one heck of a cottage charmer: Pure white DIY chalk paint and … [Read more...]

Antique Cabinet Makeover {& an Alternative to Replacing the Glass Door Panel}

Do ya'll love chocolate as much as I do? There are few things I love more, but how about as a theme for a furniture makeover? Today my furniture flippin friends and I are all sharing furniture makeovers inspired by chocolate. Say what? A few weeks ago I spied an antique cabinet at the DAV thrift store near my house. It was $79 and probably totally worth that, but the door was missing the glass and didn't close real smoothly so I passed. I went back a week later and it was marked to $49! I … [Read more...]

DIY Mini Storage Cabinet with Reclaimed Wood

Hello, awesome Friends! I'm back today with a fun little project for ya. A while back, my talented friend Wendi of H2O Bungalow pulled a group of us gals together who have little fear when it comes to power tools, in hopes of inspiring our readers who might want to give a few tools a try to go for it. Each month we share simple DIY projects that involve power tools, but that anyone can tackle! I look back at some of my earlier projects where I show my hubs cutting things for me and chuckle. I … [Read more...]

Beach-Inspired Bathroom Cabinet

Don't you love a good before and after?? I know I do! Today I'm sharing this little cabinet that I recently found at the thrift store for $8: The painting on this was beautifully done, but definitely in need of an update. One of the doors was warped also, but I knew exactly how to remedy that! I love when things work out! I didn't really do much except paint, add a graphic, and swap out the doors, but the change is pretty cool, don't you think? A big shout out to my fence picket … [Read more...]

Farmhouse Hutch Makeover

I've got a pretty makeover to share with you today! You might remember me posting about a desk with French graphics that I redid this Fall. I purchased it at an estate sale at this lovely little beach cottage (if you're visiting from a mobile device, this picture is sideways and I don't know why sorry!): About six houses from the ocean...yes please! I bought several pieces from that sale including this pretty beat-up hutch. I found it in the shed being used for tools! What a crime … [Read more...]

How to Add Glass to Cabinet Doors

Hi friends! I recently shared my kitchen makeover, and I had several requests to share how I replaced the raised panels on my kitchen cabinets with glass. This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience. Click here to read my full disclosure policy. Adding glass to just one set of cabinets had the biggest impact in my kitchen. This project was a lot easier than I expected, but I have to admit that cutting out those panels requires a little bit of guts.  Although I did mine a … [Read more...]

Chicken Wire Isn’t Just for Chickens

Chicken wire isn't just for chickens, but of course you are so smart...you already knew that!  Today I'm sharing a quick little redo on a cabinet I found at the thrift store for five dollars. I started with this $5 thrift store beauty: And here is her beauty shot: I snatched this right up and was so excited to show my mom (who was with me at the time), but she raised her nostril so high (not a good sign, I can assure you), that I almost put it back. Almost. But I had faith. (By … [Read more...]

Finally, a Solution to My Messy Spice Cabinet!

What started out as a plan to get my spices in order steamrolled into an entire day of kitchen organization. You see, my husband and I have our own spice cabinets. Sound crazy? Well, yes it is.  When we combined households we just kept them separate for some unknown reason. Something needed to seriously change! I couldn't take digging through these cabinets any longer: Hers:  His: Trying to find what I needed between these two messy cupboards was so frustrating.  The closest I … [Read more...]
