Faux Drawer Tray

Hi there and welcome to Day #10 in this fun thrifty makeover series! Today's makeover is pretty quick and simple. I started with this tray I found at the thrift store for $2: Can't pass up a perfectly good wooden whatever-this-is, right? There wasn't much to it, but I figured I could make something out of it. To me it looked like it could be a small drawer if it had a knob, so I gave it the feel of a repurposed drawer: Here it is in my dining room hutch holding a few … [Read more...]

Headboard to Organizer

We're starting week #2 of my March Madness series and welcome! I can't believe it's been a whole week already! How many dated headboards have you passed by without a second thought? I've redone several headboards because they are perfect for repurposing! Here is the $5 beauty my son and I picked up a couple of weeks ago at the thrift store: I'm sure it was only $5 because it had no tag and the cashier was put on the spot. It's getting harder and harder to find a great deal at thrift … [Read more...]

Cigar Box Upcycle

Hi friends and welcome to day #7 of my 31 Thrifty Makeovers March Madness series! We've made it a whole week woohoo! Today's makeover is a quick one.  I am sharing how I repurposed this cigar box I picked up at a yard sale a couple of summers ago: I ended up paying one whole dollar for it, and figured eventually I'd do something with it. Well eventually finally came, and I turned it into... A key holder! I painted it white with leftover chalk paint, then this … [Read more...]

Stool Revived

Hey there, awesome friends! Welcome to day#6 of March Madness! Today I'm sharing a simple stool makeover.  Please tell me I'm not the only one who chuckles at the word, "stool"? "Stool Makeover" is even funnier to me. Any who...I found this crusty and dusty stool (ha ha) in the same shed I dug my Farmhouse Hutch out of at an estate sale. Here is the before, crust and all: Only $2 and free crust? Yes I'll take it! After a little de-crusting and a some sanding and some painting and … [Read more...]

Sewing Cabinet Side Table

Woohoo day #5! Are you enjoying March Madness so far? I hope so because I sure am! Today's thrift store deal was this sewing cabinet that I picked up for $9.95. It has definitely seen better days: The top folds out to the side to reveal a work table and a space for a sewing machine. I love sewing tables as side tables because they are a great height. Here is her makeover: Paint is like magic in a can! I sanded this a bit more than I usually do because this was a … [Read more...]

Fancy Chalkboards

Hi friends! Welcome to day two of March Madness! Today I'm sharing some pretty fancy chalkboards. Here is how they started: Ooh gold is pretty fancy, right? I picked these up at an estate sale for $10 for all three!!! Two of them had paintings in them when I bought them. The prices were SO cheap! I decided to paint them and add chalk boards to them. Here they are all dressed up and ready to go to market:   Not quite as fancy as the gold, but still pretty fancy for … [Read more...]
