Vintage Suitcase Makeover

Hello sweet Friends!! Today I am finally sharing the second suitcase of this set I picked up curbside a year or so ago. I gave my garage a serious cleaning and uncovered it from one of the corners. I'll be back on Thursday with a glimpse of all the stuff I decided to purge. (It was A LOT!) I shared what I did with the first suitcase HERE, and today I'm sharing how I transformed the larger of the two: That one wasn't in as pristine condition as the smaller one was, and I had a hard time … [Read more...]

Coastal Tray Makeover

Hi Friends! Are you up for a thrifty makeover today? I found this super large oval tray at the thrift store  a few weeks back. This thing is really big! It was $12, but I just had to bring it home: This was gorgeous at one time, but had really started to show its age, so I decided to give it a completely new look: Doesn't even look like the same tray, right? I painted the tray in a mix of Annie Sloan's French Linen and Pure White. Then I created this graphic in Photoshop … [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...]

Drop Leaf Table Makeover

How would you guys like to see a furniture makeover today? It's been a while hasn't it? One of my sweet readers was curious about this table when she saw it in one of the pictures of my Christmas Market booth. I have a few pieces that I did for that show that I haven't shared yet, so I promised her I would start with this one. :) I found this drop leaf table at a yard sale last summer for $35.  Kinda plain, no bells or whistles. (Wouldn't it be funny if it actually had bells and whistles he … [Read more...]
