Oval Rosette Mirror

Hello sweet Friends and welcome to day #5 of this fun thrifty series!  Isn't it fun to see what becomes of these thrift store and yard sale finds? Today I'm sharing how I turned this plain thrift store mirror into a one-of-a-kind piece. Here is what I started with: It was marked $8.25 but it was half off. Yesterday I asked if you thought I kept it as a mirror. Let's see if you guessed right....I did! There wasn't really anything special about this mirror as it was, but giving it … [Read more...]

Drop Cloth Rosette Stool {Best of the Archives}

My Trash to Treasure Tuesday pals and I are at it again! In case you're just joining us, we thought instead of bringing you only ONE new makeover this month as part of that series, why not dig through our archives, find our favorites, and share one EVERY Tuesday this month? So this is week #3. If you missed my first two favorites I shared so far, they were my Farmhouse Hutch and a beautiful set of French Provincial chairs that I made over. Today's reshare was created as part of a … [Read more...]

Rosette Picture Frame

Hi friends! It's day 13 here in my March Madness series and today I'm sharing a super sweet way to update a plain picture frame. Frames are one thing I look out for when I'm thrifting because they can be transformed so many different ways. It's funny that I rarely use them as actual picture frames though. This time is different. I found this swanky (eh not so much) oak picture frame at a yard sale: It was in a box of frames very similar but in varying sizes. The whole box was $2! That … [Read more...]

Rosette-Framed Mirror

Hi friends! Today I have a sweet makeover for you! Last weekend I found this mirror at a thrift store: Nothing fancy, but it was in good shape and for $15 I figured at the very least I could paint it. But then just as I was dozing off I had an idea! I really need to put a post it pad under my pillow because that always happens. Yesterday I gave a little hint... I did paint it, but I also added drop cloth rosettes to it! How cute is that? I made the same … [Read more...]

Mini Drop Cloth Rosette Stool Makeover {a $5 Yard Sale Find}

I have a fun makeover for you today! Seems like it's been a while since I shared a makeover, probably because I've been knee-deep in my kitchen redo for what seems like forever! I found this little stool at a yard sale for $5 a couple of weeks ago: I liked the chair height of it and of course, the price tag.  It was a bit beat up though, and not in a "Its got tons of character" sort of way... So I immediately came up with the perfect plan in my mind... You know how sometimes … [Read more...]

Patriotic Drop Cloth Pillow

A few of my blog friends decided to get together to share something patriotic in honor of 4th of July just around the corner.  I was excited to join in the fun, but didn't want to spend very much. I immediately thought of my crazy stash of drop cloth.  My out-of-pocket for this project was $1.99 for one American flag. Those are my kind of projects! Here's my contribution to this tour:   Here's what I used to get started: This drop cloth was left over from my armless … [Read more...]
