Reclaimed Wood Tray

Reclaimed. You can call fence pickets that you rescued from the trash, reclaimed right?  Remember Mr. House Flipper who I weaseled those old fence pickets from? Those pickets are excited to be a part of March Madness! Today is day #22!! One of those fence pickets, AKA reclaimed wood pieces, are joining forces with this sweet picture and frame for today's makeover: Add a little paint and some handles. and it's a fun reclaimed wood tray! This frame started out at $6.98, but had … [Read more...]

Fabulous $7 Bulletin Board from Thrift Store Parts

We are entering the third trimester of this March Madness baby I've created! Day #21!! We're two-thirds of the way there ya'll! Many of you have mentioned that you will miss March when this is all over. Honestly, I will too. I have really enjoyed meeting you guys here each day. BUT, I'll still be here! Just not every day! So ya'll better make sure you still come by and visit me and say, "Hi" okay? Now who's ready for a makeover? Yesterday I shared this French-Inspired Coffee Table and today … [Read more...]

Mason Jar Blue Headboard Bench

Welcome to Day #19 of my March Madness Series! All this month I'm sharing a thrifty makeover every day! You can catch up on all the thrifty goodness at the bottom of this post. Guess what else today is? It's Themed Furniture Thursday! That's where I and a bunch of my favorite bloggy friends get together once a month to makeover a piece of furniture to fit a particular theme. This month's theme is "Distressed". I've included a few links so you can find the products I used. Read my full … [Read more...]

Owl Figurine Refresh

Hi my sweet friends and welcome to makeover day #17! I gave you a BIG reveal yesterday, but today I'll be sharing a tiny one! This was a simple makeover that anyone can do! This past summer, I happened upon the yard sale of the biggest owl collector there ever was. Seriously I've never seen so many owls amassed in one location. One of the owls spoke to me. Well not really, that would be creepy! But I just had to bring this little guy home with me...for all of 10¢. Look at those sweet … [Read more...]

Paris, Table for Two

Hi friends!  Welcome to thrifty makeover #16! I've so enjoyed spending every day here with you this month, if only I could keep it up! Today I'm sharing a furniture makeover, and I hope you love today's makeover as much as I do! I found this table and chair at the Salvation Army last year and they have been buried in my garage ever since. I spied the table almost right away and I loved it. I'm not sure why. The two chairs were nearby and looked like a good match. Furniture was half … [Read more...]

Basket Upcycle

Hi friends! Welcome to day 15 of my March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 days series! We are just about at the halfway mark and I still have a bunch of thrifty makeovers coming your way. Today I am sharing how I upcycled this little basket: I found it at the thrift store for $1.25. It was probably donated because one of the handles was coming unraveled. I came up with an easy fix, but first it got a new paint job. (You know I can't ever leave well enough alone.) Adding jute … [Read more...]

Planter Box from a Thrift Store Throw-Away

Fourteen thrifty makeovers delivered. Whew! Some have been small and some not so small, but they are fun to see either way, right? Today's makeover is a small one, but worth seeing I think! I found this homely little wooden apple box for $1.25 at the thrift store: Sadly, this probably would have matched my décor at one time. Oh I went through a country décor phase all right. In my defense, my décor was based mostly on what my Mom was giving away at the time! Getting rid of the … [Read more...]

Rosette Picture Frame

Hi friends! It's day 13 here in my March Madness series and today I'm sharing a super sweet way to update a plain picture frame. Frames are one thing I look out for when I'm thrifting because they can be transformed so many different ways. It's funny that I rarely use them as actual picture frames though. This time is different. I found this swanky (eh not so much) oak picture frame at a yard sale: It was in a box of frames very similar but in varying sizes. The whole box was $2! That … [Read more...]

Three French Trays

Bonjour!  It's day #12 of my March Madness series, and I am all about lovely French graphics today! I picked up this set of three trays at the thrift store a long long time ago: I paid about $13 dollars for all three, but aside from the broken handle on one of them, they were in perfect condition. I made these over to sell at my last Christmas Market show. They got a  fresh new attitude! They were painted with my favorite DIY Chalky paint recipe (using Cottage White by … [Read more...]

French Linen Server (TV Stand)

Guess what? It's day #11 of March Madness! Can you believe how fast March is flying by? I'm just glad we're finally seeing a little Spring weather around here! How about a furniture makeover today? At the same estate sale where I found this gorgeous dressing table for $40, I also picked up this unique piece for $35: It was in the dining room  and the bottom drawer has dividers for flatware, and I believe it had wheels at one time. It's a server of sorts. I gave it a makeover in … [Read more...]
