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. One of our themes for Themed Furniture Thursday at that time was "Pottery Barn Knock-offs", and this was a bit similar to the Tivoli coffee table by PB, so it got  a sleek black makeover: I had decided that I would share this for TFT then paint it white and … [Read more...]

Painted Bar Stools

Hey there, awesome Friends! I have a sweet makeover for ya'll today! I'm sharing how I updated these inexpensive bar stools I found for $5 each at two different yard sales: Can I tell you how thrilled I am that I finally did something with these things? They've been taking up valuable real estate in my garage for at least two years. Now they are updated and fresh with their beautiful new paint job: I mean who knew those ho-hum builder grade bar stools could be so … [Read more...]

Jack’s Plant Stand Update

Hey there sweet Friends! Today I'm sharing another one of Jack's makeovers. I picked this oak plant stand up for him at the thrift store for $10 a few weeks ago: I figured he could paint this up pretty quick and simple and make some easy money on it, but he wanted to do a two toned look and add a stencil. He chose the colors and the stencil. (You know, Mom, that symbol you use with the three things on it.) Here it is: I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the … [Read more...]

Fleur de Lis Dresser

Hey sweet Friends! And I'm back...again!  Today's makeover is #29 on our list and it's a good one, ya'll! I found this one at an estate sale at this quaint little cottage about six houses from the ocean: I bought a few pieces at that sale, including this farmhouse hutch and this desk, all of which I've redone and sold long ago...all except one. I went back on Sunday when everything was marked down and picked up this yellow dresser for $25: The price was right and it was in … [Read more...]

Romantic Flatware Box Makeover

It seems like there are a couple of items that I just can't seem to pass up when I go thrifting. One of them is frames, and the other is flatware boxes. It wouldn't be March Madness if I didn't share a bit of both. Today's makeover my sweet Friends, #21...can you believe it??, is this flatware box I picked up for $5: I loved the curvy lines. How could I not shove this in my cart immediately for only $5? I decided to give this one a bit of a romantic feel: And for the romance … [Read more...]

Antique Cabinet Makeover {& an Alternative to Replacing the Glass Door Panel}

Do ya'll love chocolate as much as I do? There are few things I love more, but how about as a theme for a furniture makeover? Today my furniture flippin friends and I are all sharing furniture makeovers inspired by chocolate. Say what? A few weeks ago I spied an antique cabinet at the DAV thrift store near my house. It was $79 and probably totally worth that, but the door was missing the glass and didn't close real smoothly so I passed. I went back a week later and it was marked to $49! I … [Read more...]

Curbside Suitcase Makeover

That's right, no shame here. I sure DID pick up a suitcase off of someone's curb. In fact, I picked up two! I was taking my Mom home the other day and happened through the neighborhood I grew up in when I spied these two lovelies sitting out for the trash: I'm sure these were all the rage back in the day. I quickly threw them in my car and was on my way. Today is Trash to Treasure Tuesday and I had another project in mind, but I really wanted to play around with my new luggage. (Plus … [Read more...]
