($8 flat rate shipping, and FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $50 with the code FREESHIP50) Today I'm here with my Furniture Fixer Upper crew sharing a redo of a redo.

Ornate Shelf Makeover

Hello dear friends! Today I'm sharing a shelf that used to be in Brennan's room. I had it in my yard sale pile and decided at the last minute to keep it and give it a new look!

Hello beautiful friends! I'm so excited today because Nancy and I have a brand new Thriftshop Shakedown video to share with you!!

70’s Gold Mirror Makeover

Amazing friends, today's the day! I had two pieces left in my last haul, and I'm keeping one of them as-is to possibly use in my staircase gallery wall. That means today's the day I'm sharing my final piece of this haul woohoo! It seemed like this was such a large pile at the start, didn't it? It's also Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday, so my talented friends are sharing makeovers of their own as well. Be sure to look for their projects at the bottom! Before we get to today's makeover, I have … [Read more...]

Super Dated Hutch Makeover

Hi there, amazing friends!!  Since I'm working feverishly to get my yard sale stuff together, even though it looks like rain is heading our way on Saturday boohoo, I decided to pull an old favorite out to share today! I first shared this back in 2016 and it's been a while since I shared a hutch, so here ya go: This was one very dated hutch! I love these older hutches because they have so much charm, but one thing I didn't find very charming on this one were these plastic amber door … [Read more...]

Ornate Thrift Store Boxes

Hello beautiful friends! I have whittled down my latest thrifty haul to just a few remaining pieces. Today I'm sharing these two ornate boxes I picked up at two different thrift stores: I always pick up pretty boxes when I see them. They are quick and easy to paint up and usually sell quickly. I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love. I started with the larger of the two: I paid more than I would have liked for this one at $4.25, but I couldn't … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Frame Repurposed (& a video on how to stencil and make it look hand-painted!)

Frames...okay can we add frames to the list of things I can't pass up when I see a great deal? That's frames, mirrors, and picnic baskets ha ha. I'm sensing a theme here...ahem hoarder. Welcome back, awesome friends! I'm getting down to the final few pieces from my last thrifting/estate sale haul, and today I'm repurposing this pretty frame: Anytime I see a frame with these curvy lines, I just can't resist picking it up, especially when it's half off of! This was $3.25 but all blue … [Read more...]

$6 Mirror Makeover

I'm about as bad about mirrors as I am about picnic baskets! I really have a hard time passing them up when I see a good deal since they can work in just about any space and are usually good sellers for me. I've shared a couple in the past few months and sweet friends, today I have another! This beauty was only $6.25: However, it wasn't without its flaws. I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love. You might be able to see in the photo above that some … [Read more...]

$19 Estate Sale Desk Makeover

Amazing friends, I am so excited about today's makeover! I'm joining my Furniture Fixer Upper crew and I have the perfect project piece! My friends have furniture flips of their own to share today so be on the lookout for their projects at the bottom. I found this desk at the same estate sale where I found the fretwork cabinet and the shelving unit I already shared from this haul... It was marked $38, but since everything was half off, I got it for just $19! That was a hard deal to … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Boxes Reloved

Who's up for a thrifty makeover today? I'm always up for transforming forgotten treasures into brand new functional decor! Beautiful friends, today I am sharing how I reloved two such pieces: They might be showing their age, but they still have a lot of life left to live! I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.  Let's start with the recipe box that I scored for 99¢: Personally I prefer hand-written recipes or recipes that I have printed out … [Read more...]
