Wooden Box Update

Hello lovely Friends! I'm back today with a quick little makeover for ya'll.  There's a thrift store by my Mom's house that I always stop in whenever I'm out that way. That's the same store where I found my 99¢ table. When I stopped in there last week, I found a few small things: The little pitcher was my favorite find. I can always use a pretty white pitcher. All of these were on the clearance...does it get any better than clearance at the thrift store?? (No. The answer is no.) Today … [Read more...]

Vintage Coffee Table Makeover

Hello Awesome Friends! Are ya'll up for a makeover today? I'm actually sharing a makeover of a makeover ha ha! This is the second makeover for this rather dated coffee table: I originally found this at a yard sale for $15.

Hi Friends! Are you up for a thrifty makeover today? I found this super large oval tray at the thrift store  a few weeks back. This thing is really big!

Numbered Tray

Hi sweet Friends! I'm back today as promised sharing what I did with this tray I found for $5 at the thrift store: I can't even tell you how long this has been hanging around my garage!
