$6 Rooster Lamp Makeover

Happy Thursday, beautiful friends! I have a simple makeover for ya'll today! Aren't those the best sometimes? I'm not usually drawn to roosters, but when I spied this lamp at the thrift store with a price tag of $6.25, I knew I had to bring it home: The shade was pretty jazzy, but it was yellowed and cracked on the inside, so it couldn't be saved. It's amazing what a fresh coat of paint and a new shade can do for a lamp: It looks so much more fresh and updated, don't you … [Read more...]

Grandma’s Antique Side Table Makeover

Beautiful friends welcome back! I am so excited because today is Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday!! That means not only do I have a trashy makeover for you, so do four of my favorite blogger friends! Be sure to look for their projects at the bottom. A few years ago we acquired a stack of furniture from my Hubby's Grandma's house (like this dresser and this dresser). We also found two of these tables in the shed: I painted one to use in my office to hold my printer, and the other has just … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Frame Repurposed (& a video on how to stencil and make it look hand-painted!)

Frames...okay can we add frames to the list of things I can't pass up when I see a great deal? That's frames, mirrors, and picnic baskets ha ha. I'm sensing a theme here...ahem hoarder. Welcome back, awesome friends! I'm getting down to the final few pieces from my last thrifting/estate sale haul, and today I'm repurposing this pretty frame: Anytime I see a frame with these curvy lines, I just can't resist picking it up, especially when it's half off of! This was $3.25 but all blue … [Read more...]

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!

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...]
