Sweet friends!! How lucky are we that we get to hang out THREE times this week?? I seriously wish I could post every day!
If you missed me yesterday, I was touring with my friends in the Fall Seasonal Simplicity Series sharing a project I created using this basket from my current haul! And today I am back with two more pieces from this same group!
I told ya’ll I wanted to move through these quickly because my booth is in sad shape after a busy Summer and needs replenishing! I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
I’ll start with this mirror:
This mirror was a steal at $4.25 at the thrift store! I’m not a fan of that funky gold finish, but I loved the shape of it. It got a soothing new look with Dixie Belle’s Driftwood mixed with about 1/3 Cotton.
I love this color lightened a bit and added the Cotton right to the jar once there was room. 🙂
I absolutely love this neutral, especially paired with white!
Do you know what I really love about this photo? The only thing I bought new was the greenery. Everything else was thrifted, or hand made!
The serpentine dresser used to belong to my old neighbor. It has a mirror that goes with it, but when I walked into my booth one day, the mirror harp had broken and the mirror was laying on the top of the dresser. I brought it home to fix it and it never left. It lives in our dining room and serves as a great piece for staging my photos.
The thrifted candlesticks used to be gold and were redone along with another gold mirror in this post:
I did take those to my booth but ended up bringing them home because I just love them so much!
The pitcher used to be green and was spray painted in this Dining Room post…
The dresser scarf is part of a chenille blanket that I found at a yard sale for $5. Vintage chenille blankets are another thing I covet. I found several at the same yard sale and bought every last one of them. I always look for them when I’m thrifting, but I have yet to find any more.
I mentioned the fabric pumpkins yesterday, but I made those last year…
They were really simple to make!
For this mirror, I removed the mirror first so I could paint it easily and get the back where the mirror reflects. It just makes it so much easier.
Instead of sanding and revealing the gold underneath, I dry brushed with Cotton and a very dry brush:
I sealed with Dixie Belle’s Clear Coat in Satin.
I did add the original hanging hardware to the back, but I just have it leaning against the wall here…
Now for the table.
There isn’t anything fancy or complcated about this makeover…just a couple of coats of paint is all it needed. I found this one for $10 at an estate sale:
It looks vintage, but I believe it’s just a replica. The top was in really sad shape:
I decided that all this needed was a simple paint job:
I love how these darker pieces show through when sanding. I used 220 Grit sandpaper on this one.
This clock lives in my office. I found it at HomeGoods when we first bought our house. It’s one of my favorite pieces!
The frame was thrifted and painted also and there’s my high school senior…boy I miss him at that age!
The faux lavender bunches came from Hobby Lobby. It’s 50% off every other week and is on sale right now. This is three bundles worth:
That’s two more down!
