$10 Yard Sale Chair Makeover

Hello, lovelies!! I'm back today with another piece from my Storage Room "Haul" of Shame! It's a chair that I picked up at a yard sale the Summer before last. Yes, I've held onto this chair for two years! Can I just tell you again how much I love that these "hauls" are helping me tackle all these pieces I've been hoarding?! If you need to move a few pieces along, maybe try gathering a few and snapping a photo...then print it out and cross out each item in the photo as you tackle it...it … [Read more...]

$6 Thrift Store Bench Makeover

Welcome back, sweet friends!  On one of Nancy and my thrifting trips last year, we came upon two benches outside of one of the thrift stores that were almost identical. They were long and narrow and both were painted barn red. We thought they would be perfect for each of us to make over. Then we discovered one of the ends of one of them had been chopped off. What a bummer! It would have been fun to see what each of us came up with for them. I did, however, bring home the one that was still … [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...]

Thrift Store Basket Makeover

Hello, amazing friends! I'm back today with the final piece of my yard sale rescue pile! I picked up this basket at the thrift store so long ago that I don't even recall which one I found it at, or how much I paid for it: I'm sure it wasn't much because I'm cheap like that. I know I bought it while we were still at our last house, so that is at least two years ago! It's been hanging around so long that I decided I would put it out at our yard sale for a dollar just to get it out of … [Read more...]

Painted Wooden Bowls

Lovely friends, I am so thankful for each and every one of you who visit here each day to see what I am up to! I just wanted to tell you that so thank you! I'm on the last couple of things left in my yard sale rescue pile, and today I'm giving some love to these bowls: I picked these up at a yard sale forever ago for a dollar each. They are vintage (maybe antique) dough bowls and go for $20-$40 dollars on eBay at the moment. However, these are in gross condition as is. I hesitated … [Read more...]

Yard Sale Frames Rescued

Amazing friends welcome back! If you stopped in last week, you know that I am working through a new stack of treasures that I saved from my own yard sale. (I shared a few pics of our yard sale HERE if you missed it!) Well, a couple of things I was trying hard to purge, but no one else wanted them either, so I decided to give them some love as well. Today I'm sharing these frames that once hung in our old master bathroom: And yup, those would be two of my family member's feet in there. … [Read more...]
