Revisiting a Dated Dresser Makeover

Hello sweet Friends! Summer is well under way here and I hope you are taking time to enjoy some sunshine where you are. My oldest will be turning 15 in September and I am coming to the realization that sadly, this may be our last Summer with him actually wanting to hang out here with me and my youngest son. Too soon he will be off doing his own thing with his friends...boohoo! SO I really want to make the moments count this Summer, and with that I hope you don't mind if I sprinkle in a … [Read more...]

Unfinished Wood Console Table Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! I'm so glad you stopped by today! Actually I'm so glad you stop by every day. :) Remember a week or so ago when I shared this little unfinished table that I painted, one my Dad had made several years ago? See that post HERE if you missed it. Well when I brought this home from my parent's attic, I also picked up its big sister: My parents and I did craft markets for about 15 or so years and these are tables my Dad built. My Mom would paint scenes on top of … [Read more...]

Estate Sale Bookcase Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! Did you miss not having a fresh new makeover from me on Tuesday? I've spoiled you, haven't I? Well hopefully I'll make it up to you today!

Patterned Sofa Table

We made it to day #3 yippee! Ha ha...I'm sharing a sofa table I found at a yard sale in my own neighborhood last Spring for $10.  I bought it from the same lady I bought this $60 hutch from. It was solid and I knew I could do something with it eventually. Well eventually is here and I finally got around to doing something with it! Here it is as you may have seen in the sneak peek I gave you yesterday: I started by sanding the top with the intention of staining it and painting the legs. … [Read more...]

Beachy Basket Makeover

Hi there! Remember when I shared my hutch decorated three ways as part of a decorating challenge with some of my favorite blogging friends? Well today we're back and this month's decorating challenge is baskets! I see baskets used  mostly for storage of course, but there's no reason they can't be functional and decorative right? The basket I'm sharing today was a $2 thrift store find that I of course I had to make over, because making over stuff is what I do, ya'll. :) It started out like … [Read more...]

Updating a Wall with FrogTape & a Contest!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Have any of ya'll ever used FrogTape®? It's no secret that it's my go-to tape for painting projects. I mention it all the time. I usually use it on furniture projects but was recently challenged by FrogTape® to update a wall with it. My Mom volunteered her walls for me to play with. Wasn't that so kind of her? ;) FrogTape® provided the tape, my Mom provided the paint, and I provided the grunt … [Read more...]

Well hello there!  I'm so glad you dropped by... because I love when you visit!  Come on in, I have a great chair makeover to share with you today. Do you remember these fabulous finds I dragged home from Lucketts?

Isn't that bed in the back gorgeous?! I know it's a … [Read more...]
