Dated Night Table Makeover

Hello sweet friends, and welcome to Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday! Ya'll know how much I love to make over trash. I was searching high and low for something really trashy to makeover for this occasion, but alas I came up empty. Booooo. Instead I'm bringing you the next piece in my latest thrift store haul. Even if it isn't so trashy, it's a fun makeover nonetheless.  My project started out like this: There is a shelf that looks like it's missing, but it is lying on the bottom there. … [Read more...]

$2 Thrift Store Flatware Box Makeover

Hello lovelies!! I'm back today sharing how I updated this flatware box: The title suggests it was only $2, but it was actually marked $3.25. However all green tags were half price the day I found this, so it was even cheaper...$1.63! It would have been weird to put that in the title. In fact, the only reason I picked this up is because it was so cheap! Some of the flatware boxes I come across are just beautiful, but there is nothing fancy about this one at all. I'm so glad I bought … [Read more...]

$12 Oak Night Table Makeover

Dear friends, welcome back! I am rolling right through this second bunch of thrift store finds! Today's makeover is this oak night table I scored for $12 on the same stop where I found this tufted foot stool I shared a couple of weeks ago: An oak night table with free dirt for only $12? Yes, please! This poor thang. It was a hot mess and it was SO dirty! If it weren't so big, I would swear it had fallen between the counter and refrigerator and had been left there for a couple of … [Read more...]

Drop Leaf Side Table Makeover

Hello sweet friends!! Can I tell you how relieved I am that I finally finished that dang drop-leaf table? So I had planned to share this pretty piece on Thursday: Unfortunately I ran into major issues with the paint job on top. I had painted the entire piece with one coat of DIY chalk paint using a flat black paint my Hubby had picked up for another project. I decided it wasn't quite black enough, so I followed up with a coat of leftover Country Chic Paint I had on hand. The only … [Read more...]

How to Recover a Tufted Footstool (The Cheater’s Way!)

Lovely friends, welcome back! I am working my way through thrifty haul #2 and the next item on the chopping block is this tufted footstool I scored for only $12: What a bargain! I fell in love with the legs and the bow front on this beauty right away, and it was so super soft and comfy. That's where the love affair ended though because the rest was crying SOS. When I first saw it I actually thought I might just buy it for the legs and maybe I could use them on something else. But after … [Read more...]

Who's with me? Today I'm continuing through my new thrift store haul with this vintage suitcase I scored for only $4!
