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...]

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...]

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...]

Kids’ Table and Chairs Makeover

Amazing Friends, I finally finished the little table and chair set I brought home from my booth to redo! That set has been in my booth for well over a year and I just could not figure out why it hadn't sold. Here it is as I found it: I found the chairs for only $5 for the pair at one thrift store, then a few months later, I found the table to complete the set at another. Lucky, huh? Here is a peek at their first redo: You can see the whole first makeover HERE. I just loved … [Read more...]

Well today I am getting together with my Furniture Fixer Upper girls to share furniture flips, and I have one such chair to share!
