Desk turned Dressing Table

Hello amazing friends! It's Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday and I am so excited to share a makeover with ya'll today! No I didn't stop the presses here amidst the new house chaos to update a piece of furniture, I planned ahead for this one.

Well Jack found this desk, also half off: He ended up getting it for $20. Then … [Read more...]

Curvy Thrift Store Dresser Makeover

Hello there amazing friends!! I have a brand spankin new makeover to share with ya'll today!

Garage Junk Repurposed

Hello beautiful Friends! I'm back today with a fun little project. This is from a couple  of years ago. It's one of my favorite projects because something cute and functional was created out of mostly trash! I started with this: This wasn't the trash part. One of my favorite friends in the whole world saved a few things for me thinking I could reuse them in some way, and this was one of them. It became the  perfect door frame for this sweet little mini cabinet: Isn't it cute? That … [Read more...]
