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...]

TV Cabinet Makeover

I see old TV cabinets every time I visit thrift stores. They have usually been marked down a time or two and are really cheap. The poor things are becoming obsolete and I just want to rescue them all! I always think what great storage pieces they could be if only given the chance. Awesome friends, I finally found one that would actually fit in my jeep: Although it was more than I wanted to spend at $50, I knew Furniture Fixer Upper Day was coming and I thought this would be a fun one … [Read more...]

Hotel Headboard Repurposed

Hello beautiful friends! Today I'm sharing what I did with a headboard that has been hanging around my stash since the end of 2014: That would be almost four years! I came across a large stack of these at a thrift store and they were all marked...ready for it...$3.49!! Here is the tag from one of them: A nearby hotel must have been doing some updating and donated several of these. I bought three of them. I redid the first one back in 2015, and the other two have been sitting in our … [Read more...]

$5 Antique High Chair Makeover

Hello lovelies!! I have a quick makeover for ya'll today! Can I tell you how excited I am to dive back into painting? Now that our kitchen is complete and our landscaping is done, AND the cooler weather is on the way. (I hope!) Today I'm sharing the simple makeover of this high chair I picked up for $5 at the thrift store at the beginning of the Summer: It was really dirty, almost like it had been stored in a barn or shed for about 50 years. I just loved it though and had to bring … [Read more...]

China Cabinet Refresh

Hello  amazing friends! I was SO hoping  to share our big kitchen reveal today. I got all my photos taken and edited yesterday, and then I sat down to write my post, and NO internet connection! Several neighbors have been complaining about our Internet provider and losing their service over the past week or so, but it hadn’t affected us…until now. Terrible timing! Grrrr! I couldn’t leave y’all hanging today, so thanks to my cell phone, I was able to pull an old favorite from my archives to … [Read more...]

Hello amazing friends!! Are ya'll ready for more kitchen progress? Today I am sharing how I gave our island an update with beadboard to match our "new" kitchen!

Patio Set Refresh

Hello sweet Friends!! I am excited today to share some of the progress we've made out back! You may remember me mentioning that I still had the loveseat to my outdoor patio set when I shared the two side chairs that went with it in this post. I redid those for our side porch and was debating whether or not to redo the loveseat to go along with them out there. However the truth is, we rarely sit out on our side porch, so I hated to waste it out there when we really needed seating for our deck … [Read more...]
