$5 Yard Sale Dresser Redo

Hi Friends! Welcome to day #8 of my 31 Days of Thrifty Makeovers Series!

Drop Cloth Rosette Stool {Best of the Archives}

My Trash to Treasure Tuesday pals and I are at it again! In case you're just joining us, we thought instead of bringing you only ONE new makeover this month as part of that series, why not dig through our archives, find our favorites, and share one EVERY Tuesday this month? So this is week #3. If you missed my first two favorites I shared so far, they were my Farmhouse Hutch and a beautiful set of French Provincial chairs that I made over. Today's reshare was created as part of a … [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...]

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...]

How to Paint a Laminate Kitchen Table

Hi there, awesome Friends! I am so excited about today's post! If you follow along with me on Facebook, you might remember this little kitchen set I spied at the thrift store over the Summer: Gorgeous? No it certainly is not, but together we decided I should get it anyway. Although the top is laminate, the chairs are solid and the whole set was only a mere $45! It was originally $89, but all furniture was half off that day so I just had to bring it home. I love anything … [Read more...]
