White Washed Sofa Table

Hello amazing friends! I have a brand new makeover to share today! :D Jack had decided that he wanted to pick out a piece of furniture to work on to make a little money, so we stopped by the thrift store closest to my house a few days ago and all furniture was 50% off. That never happens, but they were overstocked so it was our lucky day. The first piece with potential I spied was this sofa table: Jack wasn't interested in it, so I nabbed it for myself. It was marked $34, so we got … [Read more...]

$5 Thrift Store Tray Makeover

Hello lovely Friends! I've got a cool little makeover to share with ya'll today! On the same trip where I found the large basket I shared a couple of weeks ago, I also picked up this tray: I rarely pass up a good tray and for $5, all this tray needed was a little TLC, so in the cart it went. The bottom looks like a cool metal, but it's actually just paper. I decided instead of trying to remove the paper to get a decent  painting surface, I would just cover it up. Enter these two … [Read more...]

Child’s Antique Desk Makeover

Hey there, awesome Friends, and welcome to my favorite day of the month: Trash to Treasure Tuesday!! I know I share trash-to-treasures all the time, but on this day I get to bring you four more from my treasure maker friends as well! I am always excited to see what they've done. Look for the links to their makeovers at the bottom! I'm sharing this child's desk that I scored for $5 on the only yard sale shopping day I had this Summer. (I still cannot believe that myself!) It is very … [Read more...]

Bookcase Makeover

Hey ya'll!  If you missed my big announcement on Tuesday, you can read more about it HERE. In a nutshell, I'm out shopping the World's Longest Yard Sale right now in search of great finds to help furnish a Habitat for Humanity home to surprise the new homeowners! I'm probably somewhere in Ohio right now. :) Thanks to GMC for the invite to participate in this amazing adventure!! The show must go on around here though and I've got a pretty cool update to show you today. This month's Get Your DIY … [Read more...]

Take a Number {Fence Scrap Wall Décor}

Hello lovely Friends! On Thursday I shared this sweet little bookcase that got a whole lot more character with some paint and the addition of these old fence pickets I white-washed: Reclaimed Wood Bookcase I had to take apart the fence section I had in order to do it and was left with three of these pieces: Of course you know I can't throw anything away, so I decided to white-wash one of them along with the pickets for the back of the shelf. Then as I was digging around my garage, … [Read more...]

Reclaimed Wood Bookcase

Hi Friends! Today I'm joining my Power Tool Girl Crew to bring you a simple project I did using power tools! I love these group challenges because they motivate me to get stuff done! This month's theme is "Summer". I wanted to do something with this little bookcase I picked up at the thrift store for $12 a couple of weeks ago: It looked like someone had some sort of electronics on the bottom shelf that needed to be vented, so two big holes had been cut out on the back. When I bought … [Read more...]

Window Shelf

Hi Sweet Friends! Ready for a trash to treasure transformation?  Good! Because it's Trash to Treasure Tuesday! Today I'm sharing what I did with this $5 yard sale window: I picked up several windows this Summer and had yet to do anything with them. For today's transformation, I decided to create something simple with one of them. I sifted through my curbside-found wood stash and found the perfect pairing for one of the windows to create this: This window was not painted, so … [Read more...]

Beach-Inspired Bathroom Cabinet

Don't you love a good before and after?? I know I do! Today I'm sharing this little cabinet that I recently found at the thrift store for $8: The painting on this was beautifully done, but definitely in need of an update. One of the doors was warped also, but I knew exactly how to remedy that! I love when things work out! I didn't really do much except paint, add a graphic, and swap out the doors, but the change is pretty cool, don't you think? A big shout out to my fence picket … [Read more...]

Reclaimed Wood Organizer

By now you know when I say "reclaimed wood" I'm not talking about century old barn wood right? It's just a fancy name for old fence pickets I found on the side of the road lol.  As in this pile of pickets I found on the side of the road: Okay technically it was in a cul-de-sac in a neighborhood I was yard sale hopping in. See said yard sale in the back ground? "No thanks, I don't want to buy anything you are selling, but can I have this pile of trash?" Ha ha. This sounds a lot like the … [Read more...]

White-Washed Reclaimed Wood Tray

Hi there lovely friends! I am still catching up from this past weekend in Atlanta at the Haven Blogging conference.  It was a total blast seeing all my favorite blogging buddies again. I'll be back soon to share some fun pics! Today I am sharing what I did with this yard sale frame, and these old fence pickets I scored from a house that was being renovated: Can you see the price tag on the frame? That's one whole dollar. Score! I saw this frame as a tray right away. I started by … [Read more...]
