$6 Thrift Store Night Table Makeover

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 … [Read more...]

Ornate $25 Thrift Store Table Makeover

Hello beautiful friends! Today I'm continuing to work through the rest of my Fall Haul with this beautiful ornate table: I thought it was a steal at $25! I was surprised to find such a deal at that particular thrift store because their furniture is usually overpriced. I scooped it right up! This is one of the easiest makeovers I've done in a long time. I didn't expect any issues with bleed-through on this one because I think this is walnut, which generally does not bleed. I went … [Read more...]

$2 Thrift Store Shelf Makeover

Hello, amazing friends and welcome back! Today I'm sharing this shelf that I found for $1.98 at the thrift store: I found it on the same stop as the headboards I shared on Thursday, along with this gorgeous mirror: I believe this is an old Home Interiors piece. I made one over just like it several years ago, and I decided to do something similar to what I did the first time...I love the crisp look of the black and white together: This makeover had a lot of little steps to … [Read more...]

Shabby Chic Dressing Table

Hello, lovelies!! I am so glad to be home from my trip, but it was a lot of fun and I learned a ton! This conference was geared more towards all the no-fun back-end aspects of the blog that ya'll won't ever see, but it was super informative. The best part of all though was getting to hang out with two of my Furniture Fixer Upper pals, Kathy from Petticoat JUNKtion and Denise from Salvaged Inspirations: I met Kathy years ago at one of the Haven conferences we attended and she is such a … [Read more...]

10+ Simple DIY Halloween Ideas

Hello awesome friends! While I'm of town this week, I thought it would be fun to share some of my Halloween projects from over the years! My love for all things Halloween began after I met my Hubby. My oldest son was five at the time. We all went to Target after dinner one Saturday night, and my Hubby suggested we buy a few things to decorate my house for Halloween. He thought Jack would really get a kick out of it. They loaded up an entire cart and the rest is history! We have continued … [Read more...]

I like to share my booth space by talking about what pieces, mostly the larger ones, have come and gone since the last time we visited. When I last shared it back in April, business … [Read more...]
