Window turned Shadow Box

Hello my sweets! Yesterday was a busy day around the James house gearing up for one of our favorite nights of the year. We had such a great time, and at the end of the day, all the hard work we put into Halloween was so worth it! Here's my little man in his Minecraft costume: He had to pick a super bulky costume, but at least he made it up and down the whole street this time. He usually only makes it a few houses! And here is me and my date for the evening: Ha ha … [Read more...]

TV Cabinet Makeover

I see old TV cabinets every time I visit thrift stores. They have usually been marked down a time or two and are really cheap. The poor things are becoming obsolete and I just want to rescue them all! I always think what great storage pieces they could be if only given the chance. Awesome friends, I finally found one that would actually fit in my jeep: Although it was more than I wanted to spend at $50, I knew Furniture Fixer Upper Day was coming and I thought this would be a fun one … [Read more...]

Spring in the Living Room

Hello beautiful friends! Does it feel like Spring in your neck of the woods yet? There's a rumor that it's going to reach 70 here tomorrow. It was 39 at the bus stop this morning so while I'm not holding my breath, I am hopeful Spring is on its way! It looks like it inside here already either way. If you're new here, welcome! You will see I love to decorate with as little mula as possible, and that means lots of thrifting, repurposing, and upcycling around here! I last shared my living room … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Inbox Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! On Tuesday I shared a peek at today's project. Apparently there are a lot of these floating around out there because several of you mentioned you had one too! I'm talking about this wooden inbox I scored at the thrift store for $2.25 several months ago: Anything that is made of wood catches my eye when I'm thrifting since I know paint can work wonders, and as soon as I saw this on the shelf, I knew just what it could be. Painting it and adding handles turned … [Read more...]

Stenciled Flatware Box Makeover

Hello lovely friends! If ya'll have spent any time here at all, chances are you've seen a flatware box makeover or two or five. I just cannot pass them up when I see them! As I was looking through my storage room to find my next project, I found three of them, and decided this one would be my next makeover: Seems easy enough, right? That is until you open it: Yikes...that is where all the hard work takes place. Let's see how this baby turned out, shall we? Ooh la … [Read more...]

Sewing Table Redo

The awesome thing about painting furniture white is that if you ever tire of it, it is a great base for so many other colors. Today, amazing friends, I thought I would share one of the pieces I used to have in our old house that I no longer have room for in our new house. And yep I painted it...again! This is what this pretty little table looked like when I originally found it at a yard sale for $20 several years ago: It had pretty details but was showing some wear, especially on … [Read more...]
