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!

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...]

Sewing Machine Table Makeover with Transfer

Hello, lovelies!! I'm back today with piece number two of my newest haul from the Storage Room Haul of Shame! When my old neighbor put her house on the market, she was selling several pieces of furniture. I bought this dresser from her that I often use for staging. She also had a sewing machine table that she was selling. I passed on it when I bought the dresser because I already had two in my stash at the time, but I told her that if she still had it before moving and just wanted to unload … [Read more...]

Super Dated Hutch Makeover

Hi there, amazing friends!!  Since I'm working feverishly to get my yard sale stuff together, even though it looks like rain is heading our way on Saturday boohoo, I decided to pull an old favorite out to share today! I first shared this back in 2016 and it's been a while since I shared a hutch, so here ya go: This was one very dated hutch! I love these older hutches because they have so much charm, but one thing I didn't find very charming on this one were these plastic amber door … [Read more...]
