Amazing friends, welcome to Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday!! I make over stuff that looks like trash all the time, but it is so much more fun when I have friends joining in on the fun!! Be sure to look for links to their trashy makeovers at the bottom!
Okay so in all fairness, mine is actually not very trashy. I thought it was kind of cute actually:
What really drew me to this little table though was the $6.25 price tag! This particular Goodwill has a really small area for furniture, so they price it super cheap…as you will also see when I get to the two chairs in my Fall haul! This is also where I got this gorgeous dressing table for only $30! Usually most of their furniture is cheaply made or in very poor condition.
I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
This one has a laminate top and I’m not even sure the rest is real wood, honestly. Because the top is laminate, I went ahead and gave the top a good sanding with 220 grit sandpaper to give it some tooth for the paint to grip onto just in case. Normally, with real wood, there is no need to sand prior. (You could also use Slick Stick if you have a larger piece that will get a ton of use.) I gave the whole piece three coats of Dixie Belle’s Pink Champagne. Then I used my favorite Frogtape to add a fun detail to the inset of the drawer:
Were you expecting pink??
I still had this color sitting out on my worktable from when I used it on these headboards and thought it would be a pretty change from the original yellow.
I love this pretty soft pink. I think it gave this piece a whole new feel.
See how easy it is to use the sponge to seal in this video:
As always, use the code: FREESHIP50 at checkout in my shop to get free shipping on all orders over $50. Any orders under $50 are $8 flat rate shipping.
Ya’ll know I love stripes and they work especially well in a kid’s space which is where I imagine this sweet table will end up.
This knob came off of another piece:
I lined the drawer with this wallpaper I’ve had for years:
I just attached it with a glue stick.
I’ve used this cute horse to stage before, but I don’t think I’ve ever shared this quick makeover…
I found it for $1.98 and it started out like this:
I didn’t even realize that it was missing its tail when I bought it! As an easy fix, I cut several strands of twine to the same length and gathered them at one end with a rubber band. That was enough to hold it securely in the tail hole. And here is a photo of a horse’s hind parts:
Cute though, right? It was painted in three coats of Cotton. It makes for a sweet photo prop!
Don’t forget to check out what my friends are sharing today too!
Only a set of mirrors and a set of chairs left!!

In other news…my blog is getting a brand new design! I haven’t changed my theme since I started blogging seven years ago and it is SO overdue. I just bought my new theme on Monday and I’m not sure exactly when the magic will take place, but hopefully there won’t be much downtime involved.
I’m hoping to be back on Thursday with these mirrors:
UPDATE: No need to wait, dear friends! See how these mirrors look in our master bedroom HERE now!
See y’all then!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
