Antique Fixer Upper Table

Hello amazing friends! Today I am sharing a project that is long overdue. For my last craft market way back in 2013 (it was a sea of cottage white but you can see it HERE), my Mom decided to paint several pieces to sell too. She sold most of what she painted except for a few tables. One of the pieces was a quirky antique table. After it didn't sell at the market, she put it up in her attic. About a year later, she was cleaning up there and asked if I wanted to take the table and do something … [Read more...]

Drum Table Makeover

Hello lovely Friends! It's a fresh new year and I am excited to kick it off with one of my favorite things in the whole world...a thrifty makeover! This one is a real trash-to-treasure project. I really worked hard last year to whittle down my to-do project pyramid that has consumed my garage, so I have enjoyed thrifting again guilt-free lately. (I may or may not be meeting my maximum capacity in the garage again. #oopsie) A couple of weeks before Christmas I picked up this drum table for … [Read more...]

Coastal Cottage End Table Makeover

Hi Friends! I'm so glad you stopped in for a visit today. Luckily I haven't melted away in this heat...our thermometer reached 102 yesterday! That is really hot around my neck of the woods. I have mentioned a lot lately that I am working really hard to work through the pieces in my to-do pyramid in the garage (aka I'm on a thrift store/yard sale diet), and you'll see why soon. This end table had been buried in there for quite some time: I had just snapped this quick photo and then … [Read more...]

$5 Yard Sale Buffet Makeover

Hi Friends, and welcome to Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday!! Sharing a good trash-to-treasure project is my favorite, and today's project was pretty trashy: The top was a hot mess: On my ONE AND ONLY day yard saling this season so far (Can you believe that?? Desperately trying to be good and clear out my garage!), I was having very little luck...until I happened upon this one sale that had this buffet. I'm calling it a buffet, but it is likely the bottom portion to a china cabinet. I … [Read more...]

Simple Side Table Makeover

Welcome, amazing Friends! Can you believe it's the last day of May already?? Where did the month go? Today I'm sharing a petite side table I found at an estate sale TWO YEARS ago. I have no idea why I have resisted this makeover for so long, but it probably had a lot to do with the two words excellent and condition. It's so much harder to find motivation for a piece that really doesn't need "fixing": Am I right? I finally decided that I just needed to get it out of the garage, and … [Read more...]

Cottage-Inspired Sewing Machine Table Makeover

Hello lovely Friends! It's my favorite day of the month...Trash to Treasure Tuesday!! The second Tuesday of every month, four of my favorite trash to treasure makers and I get together to bring you a fabulous makeover on the cheap, and you know that's my absolute favorite! Today I'm sharing how I gave this little $20 thrift store sewing machine table a cottage-inspired makeover: I love the height of these tables to use as regular side tables. I was wandering through Michaels one day … [Read more...]

30+ Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer Furniture Makeovers

Hello lovely Friends! I'm always so happy when you stop by. If you are new around here, welcome! I'm so excited that you have decided to follow along with me! It's been about a year since I rounded up a few (or 30) of my own furniture makeovers, so I thought it was time to put together another. Most of these pieces were absolutely nothing fancy to begin with, but a little TLC went a long way. Let's start with this little shabby sewing machine table. It was really quite beat up when I found … [Read more...]

Harlequin Painted Side Table

Hi my sweet friends! I have been knee-deep in floor demolition at my house this weekend, but I am thrilled to say that I actually started laying my hardwood floors today...can I get a WOO HOO?! I've been sharing some of my progress on Instagram, so you can hop on over and see what I'm talking about if you like! I painted a couple of pieces for my booth last week before demo began so today I'm sharing one of them with you. This is one of three tables I picked up at the Salvation Army at the … [Read more...]

Grey & White Painted Side Table

Who's in the market for a little thrifty makeover today? You're in luck! It's day #29 in this fun March Madness Makeover Series, and I have another one for you! Today I'm sharing the transformation of this little side table: I found this at a thrift store for $49.99 a month ago, and I remember thinking the details on this piece would paint up beautifully. The price was too much though, especially for this cookie cutter furniture store table. The legs screw right off, no dovetails etc. … [Read more...]

Sewing Cabinet Side Table

Woohoo day #5! Are you enjoying March Madness so far? I hope so because I sure am! Today's thrift store deal was this sewing cabinet that I picked up for $9.95. It has definitely seen better days: The top folds out to the side to reveal a work table and a space for a sewing machine. I love sewing tables as side tables because they are a great height. Here is her makeover: Paint is like magic in a can! I sanded this a bit more than I usually do because this was a … [Read more...]
