Small Silver Tray Makeover & The Haul of Shame

Hello beautiful friends!! Today is the day!! The day I cross off the final piece of this Summer's huge hall that came out of my storage room, AKA The Haul of Shame!! I almost forgot about this little cutie until I was looking at the photo to see what was left. I found this while Nancy and I were thrifting last time: You can see me finding it here in our last thrifting video if you like:   (See how I redid that chair I found HERE!) If you're new around here, Nancy is … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Chifforobe Makeover

Hello beautiful friends! This is my last reshare. I've actually been working on the rest of my Haul of Shame this week, so I'll be back next week sharing what I did with those items! Today I'm sharing this armoire, or more specifically...chifforobe, that I picked up at the thrift store for $75 a couple of years ago: It was showing some age for sure, but I thought it was a steal at $75! I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I use. I decided to reshare this … [Read more...]

$5 Thrift Store Headboard Repurposed

Hello dear friends! You know I love ya'll...I truly do, but I am sneaking in one more week off before I get back to business. Not to worry though, I have another oldie but goodie from 2016 to share today. I chose this one because it seems like all I do with the headboards I find is make benches out of them, but that wasn't the case with this one. This headboard came from one of my all-time favorite thrift stores for a mere $4.95: There was no way I wasn't jumping on that deal! There … [Read more...]

$25 Estate Sale Dressing Table Makeover

Hi beautiful friends, and welcome to the first day of August! Where did July go?? I'm really enjoying my little break this week. Luckily I have a ton of content that gets shared once only to be buried in my project gallery, so this is a great time to reshare a few of those old favorites. Today I'm pulling out an oldie from 2015! But first, I am pleased to announce that I finally have a winner for my latest CRAFT JUNK giveaway! My first winner did not respond, so I had to draw again when I got … [Read more...]

$20 Spindle Headboard Repurposed

Hello, beautiful friends, and welcome! I just got back late last night from my beautiful niece's wedding in Wisconsin. My parents, my younger sister and one of her sons went as well. I also took my oldest, Jack, with me: They had a photo booth set up and needless to say, we had a blast with it! That's my older sister on the right and her Hubby behind her, and of course, they are the proud parents of that stunning bride! Isn't she gorgeous? (I'm biased I know.) The younger … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Stool Makeover and How to Whitewash Furniture

Hello sweet friends! Today I'm continuing through my Haul of Shame with this little stool I picked up for a few dollars at the thrift store: I had several people purchase the supplies for the whitewashing technique that I used on my drop leaf table a couple of weeks ago, and so I really wanted to create a video to demonstrate how easy is it to achieve this look. This piece was the perfect piece for that! I love this look and this finish can hide all the imperfections! It … [Read more...]

$5 Stool Redo

Hello beautiful friends, and welcome to Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday!! Most of what I share are trash-to-treasure projects, but today I get to do it with four of my favorite treasure-maker friends! You'll find links to their projects at the bottom! Today's makeover is this little bench that I painted way back in 2013: It made an appearance in my tutorial for adding graphics old-school style and used to have the word Love across the top.  It lived in my closet until we moved two Summers … [Read more...]

Child’s Wicker Rocker Makeover

Sweet friends, can I just say again how thrilled I am to be working through these pieces that I've been hoarding for so long? Today I'm sharing what I did with this child's wicker rocker: I am always drawn to children's pieces because they are so darn cute! They are also usually good sellers for me. People might hesitate to spend money on something for themselves, but will for their kiddos or grandbabies, am I right? I know that is true for me. It seems more justified … [Read more...]

Who's up for a furniture makeover?? How about six furniture makeovers? Amazing friends, today I'm teaming up with my Furniture Fixer Upper crew to bring you a total of six brand new furniture projects! Be sure to look for theirs at the bottom! My project for today is this drop leaf table that I am suffering from a slight bought of amnesia over: I have zero recollection where or when I found it or how much I paid for it! I'm pretty sure it moved with us two years ago, and it may have … [Read more...]
