Hello amazing friends and welcome back!! I’m so glad you’re here! On Thursday, I shared the 38th and final makeover from my biggest thrifty haul EVER! I was able to get so many things out of my storage room and redone! That’s now my Dixie Belle stock room woot woot!
Because this huge haul took nearly six months to complete, I feel like it deserves a look back to see all that was accomplished here!
I’m going to start with the most recent makeover and count down to the first project I completed!
Enjoy this walk down memory lane! I’ve included the link to each piece at the bottom of the after photo if you want to see more!
At number 38 is my most recently finished piece, this arched metal wall decor:
This piece already had a lot of detail to it, so all it needed was a simple paint job!
Coming in at number 37 is this ho-hum dime-a-dozen mirror I picked up for $4 at the thrift store:
In the number 36 spot is this gold plastic mirror I picked up for :
White paint worked magic on the frame of this mirror to give it a lovely shabby chic look:
The next makeover on our countdown is this simple tray I picked up for $3.25 at the thrift store:
Decoupage paper sure worked its magic on this one:
Up next is very petite coffee table I picked up many years ago from FB marketplace for $15:
I added a transfer to the top and gave it a similar glazed look that the original had using gray wax:
This next makeover is one of my absolute favorite makeovers of the bunch, this mirror I picked up for $6 at the thrift store:
It got a sophisticated new look using the Blue Sketched Flowers decoupage paper:
In the number 32 spot is this sweet chair I found for only $5 at the thrift store:
A fun new beachy color mix really brought this one to life!
The next makeover in this thrifty countdown is this cane chair I found, also for $5:
White paint and a couple of mini transfers did wonders for this pretty chair:
Thrifty Makeover number 30 started as this simple magazine rack:
It doesn’t have to hold magazines though! My favorite stripes and a DIY applique brought new life to this old charmer:
At number 29 is this silver tray I picked up ages ago for $10:
Number 28 on the list was this sad child’s chair that I’d been hanging onto for forever:
This one got a fun coastal-inspired redo in Dusty Blue with starfish on the seat!
27, 26, 25, 24, & 23
This set of mini makeovers came together as a Painting the Smalls post!
I love the smalls!
This next makeover was a mass-produced Hobby Lobby piece:
It now has a look all its own!
At number 21 is another favorite! This mirror was left over from a dresser Jack and I made over several years ago, and I actually almost donated it back to the thrift store a couple of times!
Silk in Oyster and a gorgeous Blossom Flight transfer really transformed this one:
At number 20 is this odd pair of thrift store lamps that I shared both makeovers for in one post:
It turns out that I had a match for the smaller of the two in my lamp stash, and I also had a set of matching shades that were the perfect size! The lamps were transformed with paint, and I just added a little trim detail to the shades…
The other lamp got some paint and a shade that I covered in fabric:
Next up are these doors that my dad had left from his cabinet building days:
I was happy to take them off his hands!
They each got their own makeovers!
Number 18 in our countdown is this $3 thrift store find that many of ya’ll were smitten with:
This cutie got a fresh new start with Silk Saltwater and the help of this pretty transfer:
The fun pop of yellow inside is the fun part!
I hope ya’ll are enjoying this look back so far! At number 17 is this piano bench I picked up for around $9:
Silver Bullet metallic paint gave it a bit of sophistication!
This desk was a great deal at only $20:
However, it did lack character.
I brought it to life with a white washed finish on the tops and fun stripes on the drawer!
The drawer got a fun pop of blue!
At number 15 is this fun chair I picked up for $5:
This was the first project I shared using the new Silk Paint (Baja Gray) and it turned out so cute!
I also shared the differences between the Silk and regular chalk paint in that post!
Coming in at number 14 is this unfinished wood cabinet my dad built years ago:
It got a sophisticated new look in Caviar:
Number 13 on the countdown is the makeover of this cabinet door that came out of our kitchen when we redid it three summers ago:
I turned it into a functional new shelf!
12, 11, 10, 9, & 8
That brings us to lucky number seven! This piece sat in my storage room for forever holding a lamp until I finally released it of its lamp holding duties:
A fun pop of color with this beautiful Kudzu green really brought it to life!
At number six is this $10 yard sale bed I’d had hanging around for ages:
I usually turn these twin beds into benches, but this one became two separate functional pieces:
At number five is another favorite of mine, this dated secretary I passed on it the first time I saw it at the thrift store, but the next time I visited, it was marked down to $35. It needed a lot of work:
I used another brand of decoupage paper on this pretty piece to turn it into a beautiful new piece!
The insides on this one might be my favorite!
Up next is this hotel-esque headboard I found at the thrift store many many years ago:
I bought three of them because they were so cheap. This is the third and final one that I turned into a sign:
This next one was super fun to work on! It started as this dated wall cabinet that came out of my sister’s bathroom:
I flipped it upside down, added feet, and turned it into a great storage piece for any small space!
The insides got a beautiful vibrant blue color!
Woohoo number two! I tackled this one early on because it took up so much space. I had held onto this one for ages also!
Caviar and a sweet stencil on the seat and this one was done!
And the very first project I tackled from this haul consisted of three pieces, these two chairs:
And this table:
I had four of the chairs to begin with and had already made two of them over to go with this drop leaf table last year.
The table sold, so I did the other two chairs I had at home to match, and they all came together with this table to make this absolutely charming set:
We’re not done yet!
I also completed two more furniture pieces that weren’t included in this haul. We’ll call them honorable mentions!
The first is this drum table that had been sitting in my booth for over a year:
I brought it home and gave it a much-needed makeover using the leftovers of a transfer:
And the other is this gorgeous dresser I scored for only $25!
It needed ALL the work, but Bay Breeze and this charming mermaid transfer turned it into one-of-kind treasure!
And that’s 40 thrifty makeovers!!
I have so many favorites, but I’m most excited about clearing out several pieces that have been with my since even before I moved over three years ago!
What were your favorites??
I hope you enjoyed this look back!
I’ll be back on Thursday with my Furniture Fixer Upper friends sharing another piece that came out of the depths of my storage room:
UPDATE: See how this table got an elegant new look here now!
See ya’ll then!!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
