DIY Tray from an Old Picture

Hey there, sweet Friends and welcome to the very first day of my March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 Days Series!! Are you ready? I am!! If you missed this fun series last year, every day in March I shared a thrifty makeover. You can see them all HERE. Some were small and some were not so small, but a good before and after is always fun to see, right? This year, I'm starting things off with a pretty DIY tray that I made from an old picture. I sell a ton of trays so I make a lot of … [Read more...]

Drop Cloth Rosette Stool {Best of the Archives}

My Trash to Treasure Tuesday pals and I are at it again! In case you're just joining us, we thought instead of bringing you only ONE new makeover this month as part of that series, why not dig through our archives, find our favorites, and share one EVERY Tuesday this month? So this is week #3. If you missed my first two favorites I shared so far, they were my Farmhouse Hutch and a beautiful set of French Provincial chairs that I made over. Today's reshare was created as part of a … [Read more...]

Numbered Tray

Hi sweet Friends! I'm back today as promised sharing what I did with this tray I found for $5 at the thrift store: I can't even tell you how long this has been hanging around my garage! When I did my super cleaning a few weeks ago, I found it again. Our Get Your DIY On theme this month is Numbered and Lettered projects so I knew this would be a great candidate for this challenge: I decide to fill the bottom with random numbers! I love how it turned out! I created … [Read more...]

French Linen Chair

Hello sweet Friends! I have a quickie makeover for ya'll today! I mentioned the other day when I shared my antique dressing table that I was working on a chair for it. This is that chair, only it's a bit higher than a chair so I'm calling it a stool...maybe I should just call it a chool ha ha. Here it is before. Meet the chool: It was a sad chool, but for $7.50 at the thrift store,  I dragged its sad little self home. I was going to paint it white to match the dressing table, but … [Read more...]

My Closet Makeover

Hey Friends! I've got a fun post to share with you today! Do you know what is hot hot hot on my blog right now, thanks to Pinterest? (Follow me here :) ) My Master Closet! Maybe it's all those freezing cold temps keeping us indoors (or 10ft snow drifts for some!) that get us thinking about what projects we want to tackle inside. Evidently, tackling the master closet is on a lot of people's minds lately. I redid my closet before I started blogging, and I first posted the makeover in early … [Read more...]

30+ Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer Furniture Makeovers

Hello lovely Friends! I'm always so happy when you stop by. If you are new around here, welcome! I'm so excited that you have decided to follow along with me! It's been about a year since I rounded up a few (or 30) of my own furniture makeovers, so I thought it was time to put together another. Most of these pieces were absolutely nothing fancy to begin with, but a little TLC went a long way. Let's start with this little shabby sewing machine table. It was really quite beat up when I found … [Read more...]

DIY Mini Storage Cabinet with Reclaimed Wood

Hello, awesome Friends! I'm back today with a fun little project for ya. A while back, my talented friend Wendi of H2O Bungalow pulled a group of us gals together who have little fear when it comes to power tools, in hopes of inspiring our readers who might want to give a few tools a try to go for it. Each month we share simple DIY projects that involve power tools, but that anyone can tackle! I look back at some of my earlier projects where I show my hubs cutting things for me and chuckle. I … [Read more...]

Curbside Suitcase Makeover

That's right, no shame here. I sure DID pick up a suitcase off of someone's curb. In fact, I picked up two! I was taking my Mom home the other day and happened through the neighborhood I grew up in when I spied these two lovelies sitting out for the trash: I'm sure these were all the rage back in the day. I quickly threw them in my car and was on my way. Today is Trash to Treasure Tuesday and I had another project in mind, but I really wanted to play around with my new luggage. (Plus … [Read more...]
