Lamp Makeover {& the Big Purge of 2017!}

Hello amazing Friends!! I'm back today sharing a couple of small makeovers, and one BIG purge! Can I tell you that I am just now realizing that it is actually FRIDAY? It wasn't until one of my sweet readers mentioned that she wondered what happened to me yesterday that I realized it ha ha. Oh well, a day late, but still here. :) Anyway, I spent a couple of days last month cleaning out my garage (again). I decided this time that there were some things that just had to go. We're friends, … [Read more...]

Magazine Rack Makeover

Hello, lovely Friends! I bet you didn't think you would hear from me today since I stopped in yesterday to share my Halloween décor.

I found this magazine rack at one of my favorite thrift stores for a whole $3: I swear there must have been a magazine rack collector that just gave up their … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Basket Update

Hello to the sweetest readers ever! Thanks so much for all the wonderful feedback on the doll clothes I made for my niece that I shared on Tuesday! I had THE best time making them. Today I'm sharing a quick update of this giant thrift store basket I scored recently: It's hard to see how large it is in that photo, but this thing is a good size and a bargain at $10. I knew it could be perfect for so many uses, but was a bit plain in its current state. A little spray paint to the … [Read more...]

Patio Set Makeover {Outdoor Décor Design Challenge}

Hi Friends! The rain has finally given us a break around here, thank goodness, and my back patio furniture has been desperately crying out for a redo...just in time for this month's Design Challenge: Outdoor Décor! Seriously, I think I hear it sobbing in the middle of the night, ya'll. Take a look at what it was looking like after the neglect of Winter: See what I'm talking about. Ew. The cushions covers are about two years past due. That rug is just pitiful, and the umbrella was a … [Read more...]

Cheap Planter Update and My Favorite Filler!

Hello lovely Friends! Have you had a chance to start working outside yet? Maybe where you live, you're just starting with the cooler season?

Plate Rack Update

Hey Sweet Friends! I have been busy working in my yard the last week or so and I have really been enjoying being outside.

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...]

Charlotte’s Night Table

Hi Friends and welcome to day#22 of my March Madness, 31 Makeovers in 31 Days Series!! Today's makeover is a sweet one and one that was fun to do since it was for someone special. One of my best friends in the whole world was on the lookout for a night table for her sweet daughter, Charlotte's room. Well actually she asked me to be on the look out and so I have been. Who would have thought it would be so hard to find a simple night table fit for a pretty girl's room? I finally spied this … [Read more...]

Patriotic Birdhouse

    With the Fourth of July just around the corner for us here in the U.S., some of my favorite blogger friends and I are sharing fun DIY projects to show off our patriotic pride!

Here it is before: It's kind of pretty, but it has just been sitting in a bin in my … [Read more...]
