$5 Thrift Store Headboard Repurposed

Hello dear friends! You know I love ya'll...I truly do, but I am sneaking in one more week off before I get back to business. Not to worry though, I have another oldie but goodie from 2016 to share today. I chose this one because it seems like all I do with the headboards I find is make benches out of them, but that wasn't the case with this one. This headboard came from one of my all-time favorite thrift stores for a mere $4.95: There was no way I wasn't jumping on that deal! There … [Read more...]

$25 Estate Sale Dressing Table Makeover

Hi beautiful friends, and welcome to the first day of August! Where did July go?? I'm really enjoying my little break this week. Luckily I have a ton of content that gets shared once only to be buried in my project gallery, so this is a great time to reshare a few of those old favorites. Today I'm pulling out an oldie from 2015! But first, I am pleased to announce that I finally have a winner for my latest CRAFT JUNK giveaway! My first winner did not respond, so I had to draw again when I got … [Read more...]

$20 Spindle Headboard Repurposed

Hello, beautiful friends, and welcome! I just got back late last night from my beautiful niece's wedding in Wisconsin. My parents, my younger sister and one of her sons went as well. I also took my oldest, Jack, with me: They had a photo booth set up and needless to say, we had a blast with it! That's my older sister on the right and her Hubby behind her, and of course, they are the proud parents of that stunning bride! Isn't she gorgeous? (I'm biased I know.) The younger … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Tray Makeover with Shiplap

Who's ready for a thrifty makeover today?? Always, right? Me too! Sweet friends, today I'm sharing another Haul of Shame project. For those of you that just joined us recently, this pile of treasures I'm currently working through is made up of things from my own stash that I have hung onto for ages... some of them even years! This tray is one of those items, but only because it was buried and I had forgotten all about it: I redid one very similar to it a few years ago. This one was … [Read more...]

Thrifty Basket Makeovers

Beautiful friends welcome back! Today I am back working through my Haul of Shame! These two baskets have been hanging around as long as I can remember: Let's start with the one that gave me the most trouble: It was marked 75¢, but it was late in the day at the yard sale where I found it, so the lady selling it said to just give her 50¢. I couldn't not bring it home for two quarters, right? I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love. I started both … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Stool Makeover and How to Whitewash Furniture

Hello sweet friends! Today I'm continuing through my Haul of Shame with this little stool I picked up for a few dollars at the thrift store: I had several people purchase the supplies for the whitewashing technique that I used on my drop leaf table a couple of weeks ago, and so I really wanted to create a video to demonstrate how easy is it to achieve this look. This piece was the perfect piece for that! I love this look and this finish can hide all the imperfections! It … [Read more...]

$5 Stool Redo

Hello beautiful friends, and welcome to Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday!! Most of what I share are trash-to-treasure projects, but today I get to do it with four of my favorite treasure-maker friends! You'll find links to their projects at the bottom! Today's makeover is this little bench that I painted way back in 2013: It made an appearance in my tutorial for adding graphics old-school style and used to have the word Love across the top.  It lived in my closet until we moved two Summers … [Read more...]

$2 Thrift Store Box Makeover

Happy Thursday, amazing friends, and Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans! Today's makeover isn't patriotic inspired, but I did include a fun one from the past at the bottom for you! :) Today I'm sharing a piece that I found on clearance at the thrift store...is there anything better?  Why yes there is, actually! How about a double markdown at the thrift store? The box I'm sharing today was marked down not once, but two times! I knew this little box had potential: And it … [Read more...]
