Hello amazing friends! How is everyone doing? We have been hunkering down here and doing okay for the most part, but I have to admit, I’ve had a couple of days of feeling a bit stir crazy. Having everyone home has definitely had its effect on the state of our house, so on Friday, the boys and I gave the house a good cleaning. Then on Saturday, I tidied up the garage. Although I have been doing really well at keeping my workspace organized since I finally got it together earlier this year, pieces have moved in and out and it just needed a good straightening. I can’t tell you how much better I felt with a clean house and workspace! It somehow helps to clear my mind and allows me to regain my focus! Does cleaning do that for you?
Today I’m sharing the final piece of my Winter haul!! It is just a small piece with a simple makeover, so I have a BONUS thrifty makeover for ya’ll today as well! I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
First, here is the tray I’m making over today:
It already had a herringbone weave pattern on the bottom, so it didn’t need anything more than a simple paint job:
This is two coats of Cotton.
A light sanding with 220 grit sandpaper highlights some of the herringbone pattern on the bottom…
Had I tried to paint or stencil any kind of design on the bottom, it would have been uneven I’m sure with that pattern.
Super simple, but way better than how it started, right?
Okay now for your bonus makeover!
I picked up this fun little table for $5 about a week before we were officially on shut-down:
This was the perfect opportunity to try a new Dixie Belle color. This is Mermaid Tail:
Isn’t it perty??
I thought this could be a great little table to add to a small powder room for a little charm and added pop of color:
I just love those spindly legs!
Such a pretty color!
And that completes this haul WOOHOO!!!

Did you have a favorite?? Mine was probably the $5 Thrift Store Chest Makeover!
I’ll be back on Thursday with this lovely piece I picked up to use as a display piece for my booth:
