Reclaimed Wood Side Table

Welcome to day #28 in this thrifty makeover series! Can you believe it's day #28?? Where did March go? Today I'm proud to say that I eliminated yet one more thing that has been mocking me from my to-do pyramid. It started with these old decking boards I found in the woods near my house: I used some of them for the seat on this Headboard Bench I shared the other day: Farmhouse Headboard Bench And while they were fresh in my mind (and out from under a pile of junk that was on them … [Read more...]

French Provincial Desk Makeover

Well hello there, Friends! Back again so soon? I'm so glad you are!  I have a furniture makeover to share with you today. Are you up for that? Today I'm sharing a desk that my neighbor asked if I could paint for her last Summer. To be honest, I really prefer not to paint furniture for other people. I just don't like the pressure that comes with it. What if I ruin it? Yikes! Plus I don't have the space nor the time to take on more than I already have. I did agree to paint this desk for my … [Read more...]

15 Minute Table Makeover

I have a booth in an antique mall where I sell my upcycled treasures. Some things sell like hotcakes, and some things sell like three day-old stale bread. Today's thrifty makeover is one of those pieces of stale bread. Welcome, Friends, to March Madness Thrifty Makeover #18! It's a piece my Mom painted a few years ago for a craft market, but didn't sell. I stuck it in my booth along with a few other pieces she had left to help clear out her attic. Everything sold quickly except for this … [Read more...]

Patterned Sofa Table

We made it to day #3 yippee! Ha ha...I'm sharing a sofa table I found at a yard sale in my own neighborhood last Spring for $10.  I bought it from the same lady I bought this $60 hutch from. It was solid and I knew I could do something with it eventually. Well eventually is here and I finally got around to doing something with it! Here it is as you may have seen in the sneak peek I gave you yesterday: I started by sanding the top with the intention of staining it and painting the legs. … [Read more...]

Simple Sewing Table Makeover

Hello hello, lovely friends! Hope your year is off to a great start so far! Up for a little furniture redo today? I spied this sewing table at one of my favorite thrift stores before the Holidays (when I was supposed to be grocery shopping): I love these as side tables because they are the perfect height. This one was marked around $36. I passed on it one, because I was absolutely out of room in my garage and two, because it just wasn't cheap enough to justify trying to make space for … [Read more...]

Oval Library Table Makeover

And I'm back my lovely Friends, with my Tuesday Trash to Treasure Transformation! I almost didn't see this library table at yard sale because it had a ton of clothes piled on top of it: It almost looks like one of my after shots with it being painted already right? That's what I do...I slap paint on stuff. But if you look closer, you can see this is in really sad shape: For $20 it was a steal though, so I dragged it home. This time instead of slapping paint on it, I decided … [Read more...]

Antique Folding Sewing Table

Hi Friends! 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 … [Read more...]

Coastal Pedestal Table

Hi Friends! I can't believe a whole month has passed since our last Themed Furniture Thursday! May is flying by at record speed. I was just getting ready to start my floor demolition for my new hardwood floors when I shared this Pottery Barn Inspired Coffee Table for last month's theme: Pottery Barn Inspired Coffee Table This month's theme was much easier (or so I thought)...small tables. For this project I found the perfect table at my neighborhood yard sale: This beauty was only … [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...]

French-Inspired Coffee Table Makeover

Hi friends and welcome to Project #20 of my March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 days series!  Today is a fun one because I am not only sharing a thrifty makeover of my own as part of March Madness, but at the bottom, there are 24 VERY TALENTED gals sharing these fun projects too: But first things first...yesterday I shared my Mason Jar Blue Headboard Bench and promised something pretty to go with it. This is a table that my Mom painted a while ago and had stored in her … [Read more...]
