Hey there sweet friends! Ya’ll know my poor booth has been suffering lately thanks to the new house and all. Well I stopped by there last week and confirmed it. Yup, it is a sad state of affairs over there at the moment. But guess what finally sold?
See more of that makeover HERE if you missed it. It took a year and a half but their new keeper finally found them! That was a nice surprise, but I may not have even made my booth fee this month so I really need to get some inventory in there!
My best sellers as far as furniture goes are dressers, and I have none in there at the moment. I have been on the hunt with not luck, so yesterday I spent the entire day thrifting all over the city in search of a couple of dressers. Still no luck, so I jumped on Craig’s list when I got home and found a small dresser for $40 that looked promising. I drove an hour each way to pick it up, but at least I have one.
I had a small project in the works that I planned to share today, but my thrifting excursion took longer than anticipated and I didn’t get it finished. So I am sharing an oldie but goodie from a couple of years ago instead.
This is a good before and after. I’m sharing this little cabinet that I found at the thrift store for $8:
The painting on this was beautifully done, but definitely in need of an update. One of the doors was warped also, but I knew exactly how to remedy that!
Looks like an entirely different cabinet, don’t ya think?
I didn’t really do much except paint, add a graphic, and swap out the doors.
Gotta give it up to my old fence picket pile:
They make so many things better.
I sanded where the decorative painting was previously to get a smooth finish. Then I just painted using white latex paint since I was painting over paint.
I used the old doors as a guide to build my new doors.
I attached the cross pieces with screws from the backside…
I reused the original hinges and magnetic closure.
Then I added the “Beach” graphic to the top for a little fun touch. See more about transferring graphics here.
The pulls came off of an older piece. I just spray painted them white…
You could hang this anywhere to hide a few things.
Now it’s a fun one-of-a-kind!
Here’s another oldie but goodie you might enjoy:
See what on earth I made with these pieces HERE!
I’ll be back on Tuesday with my Trash-to-Treasure girls sharing what I did with my new Craig’s List dresser:
UPDATE: No need to wait…see how I updated this cutie HERE now!
Have a great weekend! 🙂
