Antique Folding Sewing Table

Antique folding sewing table.

A few weekends ago, I had a fantastic yard sale day that looked a little something like this: One of the yard sales I almost didn't stop at was one held by a paint supply distributor! What are the chances?? There really wasn't much to see from the street, but I saw stacks of blue tape and that's what made me get out to look. Look at the goodies I scored! The tape was a painter's tape that I hadn't heard of before, but he was selling it for $1 a roll, so I didn't have much to lose. … [Read more...]

Update a side table by adding fabric to the drawer/s

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing a great way to give furniture a new look. I found this ho-hum side table at the Salvation Army for $15: What I liked about this table besides the price, were the details in the corners below the drawer. Pieces like this are fantastic because they are like a blank canvas. There are just so many ways you could update this simple table.

Petite Paris Side Tables

Petite Paris Tables

Welcome...I have a cute makeover for you today! My Mom had these two petite side tables in her attic that she had painted and stenciled a while ago. She never was happy with the results and offered them to me to redo for my booth. Of course I'll take them! Here they are with their stencil: Not terrible, but for this to work the stencil needed to be oval. And not brown. After I sanded the stencil away and repainted the top, I decided to give these sweet antique tables a French … [Read more...]

Frenchy Scalloped Table Makeover

Antique scalloped table with french graphics

Hi everyone! A couple of months ago I shared this little table in a guest post.  In case you didn't get at chance to check it out then, I thought I'd share it here today! This is a sweet table I redid for my last show.  I found it at an estate sale last summer. The house I found it at looked like time had stood still and nothing had been touched in several decades. You seriously could have put up velvet ropes at each door way and called it a museum! (I'm so serious.) It creeped my mom out, … [Read more...]
