How to Cover a Lampshade

Time for thrifty Makeover #23, ya'll! What?? Only eight more left in this thrifty makeover series, but I've got some good ones still to come! Today's makeover is this rooster lamp that my Mom had brought over to sell at my neighborhood's annual yard sale last Spring: She was over the rooster thing and it no longer matched her kitchen, but she was undecided at the last minute whether she really wanted to sell it. She ended up leaving it at my house, and I decided to give it a … [Read more...]

Fabric Inlaid Night Table

Hi Friends! On Tuesday I shared the makeover of one VERY brown dresser. As I was just about finished painting it, I realized I had a night table that had very similar lines.

Dressing Table Bench Makeover

My Mom picked this up at the same estate sale where she scored these amazing French provincial chairs. (Trust me, they did NOT start out amazing.) We had been together the day before and she went back for the chairs, so I sent her in after the bench as well since it was the last day and everything was … [Read more...]

Dresser with Fabric Inlay

Hello beautiful people! I'm so happy you stopped by because I have a pretty project to share with you.  Today I am sharing a yard sale dresser I made over with a fabric inlay treatment. You are not going to believe what I paid for this.  Last month I was just about to call it a day after hitting up several yard sales when I happened  upon this particular sale. I spied this dresser from a mile away, but of course I thought for sure it was either sold or ridiculously priced since it was still … [Read more...]
