Standing Outdoor Halloween Sign

Hey sweet Friends! Do ya'll get into Halloween? I know of a few of ya'll that do, but my guess is that most people do not.  Around here, we really have fun with it! We are still tweaking this year's outdoor decorations at the moment. It has been fun decorating a new house! One of my favorite projects I've created for Halloween started with this mailbox box post I found at the Home Depot for $28: I knew it would be perfect to recreate this sign  I saw at BHG.com a couple of years ago. I … [Read more...]

Dated Dresser Redo

Hello awesome friends and welcome to Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday!! Ya'll know I love this day because four of my treasure-maker friends are also sharing makeovers of their own! Who doesn't love a good makeover (or five)?? Be sure to look for their projects at the bottom! On Thursday I mentioned that I went thrifting last week in search of a couple of furniture pieces for my booth, dressers to be exact. They are great fillers and sell well for me. I did come across a few in my hunt but nothing … [Read more...]

Dated Cabinet Update

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? The birdhouse lamps! 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 … [Read more...]

Mirror turned Chalkboard

Hello amazing friends! I have another makeover to share with ya'll from this pile of goodies I picked up last Saturday: It's this mirror I scored for $4.98: If you missed what I did with the baskets, see them HERE. I had passed it up twice before since the mirror in it was so heavy. Then when I saw it last Saturday, it had been marked down again and it occurred to me that it would make a fantastic chalkboard! Don't you think? This wall is in our kitchen and I knew I … [Read more...]

Square Coffee Table Redo

Have you ever searched high and low for something and then discovered it was right in front of you all along? Amazing friends, that is exactly what happened to me! I have been on the hunt for a new coffee table since we moved in and have had no luck. Much like when I was looking for a kitchen table (See the one I ended up with HERE if you missed it.), I even went searching every furniture store in my area totally willing to pay retail if I found something I liked. Nope.  And of course I've … [Read more...]

Painted Picnic Baskets

Hello sweet Friends! I have a quick thrifty makeover for ya'll today! Actually I have three. For the first time in months I decided to treat myself to a morning of yard saling on Saturday. Here is what I found: Okay...I also hit up the thrift store! I think I found some fun stuff. That blue case in the front is an old hairdryer...I just wanted it for the case, but I thought that was a cool find. The table was only $20 and the mirror was only $5! Today I'm sharing what I did with … [Read more...]

Front Door Updated and Ready for Fall!

Hello amazing friends!! It's hard to believe tomorrow is the first day of Fall, but our front door and I are ready! I am so ready for some cooler days to head our way, and not only did our front door get an update, I also added a little Fall flair! First here is our front door before: We strive so hard to get that "weathered" look for furniture pieces and such, but this authentic weathered finish just wasn't doing this door any favors. Any guesses what color I decided to paint it … [Read more...]

Frame and Mirror Upcycle

Happy Tuesday, awesome Friends!! I spent the better part of this past weekend in my paint pants painting all the trim in my kitchen and this hallway that leads to the back stairs: That includes NINE doorways, 3 large windows in the kitchen (one is actually a door), and five interior doors (laundry room, garage, storage room, door to FROG, and pantry), plus all the base molding and chair rail that connects them! This just seemed like such a daunting task, but I am so happy it is … [Read more...]

How to Install Wainscoting

Hello weekend warriors!! So you think you might want to tackle adding wainscoting to a room, eh?  Today I am sharing how I added 48" wainscoting to my guest bathroom. Here is how this space started: This is the first time I saw this bathroom and I was taking photos to remember it. And here is what a little wainscoting can do:   I know, right?? See the whole makeover HERE. Adding wainscoting to the walls added so much charm to this space, and it can be done … [Read more...]
