Thrift Store Baskets go Coastal

I am a picnic basket hoarder. There, I said it. I cannot pass up a deal on a picnic basket. I just love them!  Amazing friends, it is Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday and I am thrilled to announce that I tackled not just one of the picnic baskets I recently picked up, but both picnic baskets I recently picked up! Before I forget...don't forget to look for my talented friends' makeovers at the bottom! I really had no business buying more picnic baskets because look what I still have in my storage … [Read more...]

$6 Thrift Store End Table (& a Video on How to Line a Drawer with Fabric)

Hey there, beautiful friends! Who's up for a sweet makeover? Today's project piece is this end table I picked up for $6.25 at the thrift store: Can you believe it was only $6? It looked more like this when I found it: The legs had been removed and tucked inside. Maybe that's why it was so cheap. I didn't attempt to assemble it in the store to make sure it would go back together properly, but for that price, I figured I would take my chances. I don't usually pick up … [Read more...]

$4 Thrift Store Tray Makeover

Sweet friends, welcome back! Today I'm sharing project piece #2 from my most recent thrifty haul...this tray that I picked up for $4.25 at the Goodwill: That design on the bottom was under a really thick layer of acrylic, and I knew I wanted to cover that up. That is exactly what I did! Here is how it looks now: I almost always pick up wooden trays when I see them, but I especially loved that this one already had these cute feet. I've included a few affiliate links so you can … [Read more...]

Estate Sale Shelving Unit Makeover

Hey there amazing friends! I'm back with my Furniture Fixer Upper girls sharing the first piece of my brand new haul!! I am super excited about this one! First, here is my new stack of goodies ready and waiting to be transformed: I actually found some decent furniture pieces this time, thanks mostly to an estate sale that I visited last weekend. I get really discouraged with the estate sales in our area because they are so incredibly overpriced! This one actually wasn't too bad … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Decor: The Rest of Thrift Store Haul #2!

Hello beautiful friends! I'm back today with what was left from thrift store haul #2, three pieces that turned into pretty home decor! Here is the first item I'm sharing today: This was a steal at $9.98, but this was not an unusual find. I find pretty mirrors similarly priced quite often and they are usually good sellers for me. If you're in need of a mirror, definitely hit up the thrift store first. This one was from 1977 according the stamp on the back and it was heavy duty plastic. … [Read more...]

Vintage Suitcase Makeover #2

Amazing friends, welcome!! I am always so thrilled when you stop by! Today I'm back sharing what I did with the other vintage suitcase I scored on my last thrifting trip: They were both a steal at $4 each. You can see what I did with the first suitcase HERE.  I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.  This one took a different direction... I decided to keep it pretty simple... Sometimes simple is good, right? Before painting this … [Read more...]

Dated Night Table Makeover

Hello sweet friends, and welcome to Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday! Ya'll know how much I love to make over trash. I was searching high and low for something really trashy to makeover for this occasion, but alas I came up empty. Booooo. Instead I'm bringing you the next piece in my latest thrift store haul. Even if it isn't so trashy, it's a fun makeover nonetheless.  My project started out like this: There is a shelf that looks like it's missing, but it is lying on the bottom there. … [Read more...]

$2 Thrift Store Flatware Box Makeover

Hello lovelies!! I'm back today sharing how I updated this flatware box: The title suggests it was only $2, but it was actually marked $3.25. However all green tags were half price the day I found this, so it was even cheaper...$1.63! It would have been weird to put that in the title. In fact, the only reason I picked this up is because it was so cheap! Some of the flatware boxes I come across are just beautiful, but there is nothing fancy about this one at all. I'm so glad I bought … [Read more...]
