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!

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...]

How to Paint a Laminate Kitchen Table

Hi there, awesome Friends! I am so excited about today's post! If you follow along with me on Facebook, you might remember this little kitchen set I spied at the thrift store over the Summer: Gorgeous?

It was originally $89, but all furniture was half off that day so I just had to bring it home. I love anything … [Read more...]

Window Shelf

Hi Sweet Friends! Ready for a trash to treasure transformation?  Good! Because it's Trash to Treasure Tuesday! Today I'm sharing what I did with this $5 yard sale window: I picked up several windows this Summer and had yet to do anything with them. For today's transformation, I decided to create something simple with one of them. I sifted through my curbside-found wood stash and found the perfect pairing for one of the windows to create this: This window was not painted, so … [Read more...]
