Hey there, amazing Friends! I have some super exciting news to share with ya'll today!!! But first, as promised on Thursday, I'm sharing the makeover of this mirror I picked up for a mere $6 at the thrift store: Regretfully, there were two and I only picked up one of them.

The … [Read more...]

French Provincial Desk Makeover

Well hello there, Friends! Back again so soon? I'm so glad you are!  I have a furniture makeover to share with you today. Are you up for that? Today I'm sharing a desk that my neighbor asked if I could paint for her last Summer. To be honest, I really prefer not to paint furniture for other people. I just don't like the pressure that comes with it. What if I ruin it? Yikes! Plus I don't have the space nor the time to take on more than I already have. I did agree to paint this desk for my … [Read more...]

Mail & Key Holder Update

Hello lovely Friends! We are a bit drenched in our area this weekend...perfect weather for working indoors on a few small thrifty makeovers, wouldn't you agree? Today I'm sharing one I found a  couple of weeks ago. I knew it was still perfectly functional, just a little outdated: A quick paint job (DIY chalk paint), and it's fresh and new again! I love you, paint. So much better...unless of course you are a huge mallard fan, then I'm truly sorry I ruined this. I was … [Read more...]

$5 Mini-Chest with Mirror Makeover

Hey friends! Today I have a quick before and after for you and then you can go about your day as planned! I needed a simple project after reupholstering two French Provincial Chairs nearly did me in! I found this little antique chest for $5 at a yard sale right in my own neighborhood this Summer: Those mirror supports are barely sitting in there. It just about fell apart when I picked it up, but a little wood glue and we're good to go. Here is the after: I picked up this … [Read more...]

Desk with French Graphics

Yay! It's Themed Furniture Thursday!  A bunch of us crazy DIY girls get together once a month to share a furniture makeover. The catch is that everyone's makeovers have to follow a theme! This month's theme is "Words/Letters".  I immediately went to my go-to for graphics...the Graphics Fairy, and this is what I came up with: Can you see the graphics? They're on top! I found this desk at an estate sale a few weeks ago at this cute little cottage that was about 6 houses from the … [Read more...]

Frenchy Scalloped Table Makeover

Hi everyone! A couple of months ago I shared this little table in a guest post.  In case you didn't get at chance to check it out then, I thought I'd share it here today! This is a sweet table I redid for my last show.  I found it at an estate sale last summer. The house I found it at looked like time had stood still and nothing had been touched in several decades. You seriously could have put up velvet ropes at each door way and called it a museum! (I'm so serious.) It creeped my mom out, … [Read more...]

Desk Makeover

When my hubby and I got married, we gave away his beloved black faux leather bachelor sofas and sold my blue and white girly-patterned sofa. Then we purchased a new gender-neutral sectional, black T'V stand, and eventually, the matching desk.  Fast forward several years and he now gladly let's me make all décor-related decisions. (I mean he did let me chop up our sectional...really you should take a look at that if you haven't already.) I think he just wants me to be happy, so he doesn't have to … [Read more...]

Sweet Little Table Redo

This really is a sweet little table that I'm sharing today. It's also another piece I acquired from Omi. You can read more about her and her pretty sewing box makeover here. It was built by someone in her family many years ago. Here is the before: A diamond in the rough! I thought it would be the perfect little table for my downstairs bathroom. This is the bathroom our visitors use. My husband retiled it from floor to ceiling before I came along.  Although it's beautiful, it … [Read more...]
