How to Recover a Tufted Footstool (The Cheater’s Way!)

Lovely friends, welcome back! I am working my way through thrifty haul #2 and the next item on the chopping block is this tufted footstool I scored for only $12: What a bargain! I fell in love with the legs and the bow front on this beauty right away, and it was so super soft and comfy. That's where the love affair ended though because the rest was crying SOS. When I first saw it I actually thought I might just buy it for the legs and maybe I could use them on something else. But after … [Read more...]

The Best Deal I ever got at a Thrift Store

Hello dear friends! I had hoped to have a new project finished to share today, but with hurricane Michael heading our way, I spent Thursday taking down pretty much every Halloween decoration I had outside, and securing our outdoor furniture, trampoline, etc. I am so glad I took the time to do all that though because we got some serious winds Thursday night, gusting up to 75 mph at times. We are so fortunate that our area sustained very little damage as compared to many others who weren't so … [Read more...]

Petite Antique Dresser Update

Happy Thursday amazing friends! Today I am sharing a dresser that I purchased last November. My booth inventory was very low at that time and I was kind of desperate to find a few pieces for it, and was having a hard time finding anything. Enter this pretty little number: It was $99 which I would normally NEVER pay for a small dresser like this, but it was already in beautiful condition. Clearly someone had lovingly restored it, so I decided it was worth the hundred bucks. Except … [Read more...]
