Dated House Lamp Update

Hey there Sweet Friends! I'm glad I could make some of ya'll feel better about your own hoarding tendencies on Thursday ha ha.

I have been working on that set of chairs I uncovered during the big purge, and I will be sharing them on Thursday, so today I'm sharing a quick but cute little makeover! I spied this lamp at the thrift store a couple of months ago: Yep it's a lamp! Cute, huh? It … [Read more...]

Wooden Thrift Store Box Update

Happy Tuesday, amazing friends! Today's makeover is a small one. A little wood box has so many potential uses, so pretty much any time I see one, I buy it. This one was probably the saddest one I've come across: I'm not sure what purpose this served, but what was up with that faux wood contact paper? Or maybe we should be asking why this faux wood contact paper was ever even a thing? Actually I think I remember this look being in our kitchen growing up...I think we had counters that … [Read more...]

10 Thrifty Reclaimed Wood Projects

Hello, amazing Friends! Today I am sharing some of my favorite thrifty makeovers! The theme for this month's Get Your DIY On challenge is "Wood", and when I think of wood, I automatically think of the stash of old fence pickets I have in my garage.  Nothing makes my heart go pitter patter like seeing a big ole pile of discarded fencing on the curb! That's free money right there! And technically I can call it "reclaimed", right? I shared this scene on my Facebook Page a couple of months … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Basket Update

Hello to the sweetest readers ever! Thanks so much for all the wonderful feedback on the doll clothes I made for my niece that I shared on Tuesday! I had THE best time making them. Today I'm sharing a quick update of this giant thrift store basket I scored recently: It's hard to see how large it is in that photo, but this thing is a good size and a bargain at $10. I knew it could be perfect for so many uses, but was a bit plain in its current state. A little spray paint to the … [Read more...]

Thrifty Wooden Pedestal Bowls

I have been making real progress in clearing out the garage in the furniture department, but what I also have seemed to amass are about six large Rubbermaid containers of bric-a-brac as well. Most of it is comprised of wood pieces since I am always immediately drawn to them. There are a ton of wooden candlesticks in there, apparently I just cannot say no to them. I used up some of them when I made these coastal-inspired candlesticks, and today, my friends, I am sharing how I used two more of … [Read more...]
