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...]

Thrift Store Lamp Makeover

Are ya'll up for a quick makeover today? I'm sharing a thrift store lamp that I found several months ago. The lighting in my booth is very harsh, so I thought I would find a lamp or two to add a little softer lighting to my space. Here is the lamp I found for a few dollars: It had pretty lines, but came without a shade. I didn't realize how hard shades would be to come by, and I did not want to break down and buy new. Luckily I didn't have to.  I found this one for $3 a couple of … [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...]

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...]

A Men’s Valet Stand Becomes a Pretty Stool for Her

Last Summer I found this rather worn men's valet stand at an estate sale. I shoved it in my garage and it's been buried there ever since. I'm not sure what I saw in it to begin with, here is the before: What I think I liked is that the lid to the bench opens up and it was filled to the brim with all sorts of items. I found a pocket watch, an old shaving blade, a pocket knife, and many other personal items. I was fascinated. And it was only $8. I decided to remove the … [Read more...]
