Hello beautiful friends!! Today is the day!! The day I cross off the final piece of this Summer’s huge hall that came out of my storage room, AKA The Haul of Shame!!
I almost forgot about this little cutie until I was looking at the photo to see what was left. I found this while Nancy and I were thrifting last time:
You can see me finding it here in our last thrifting video if you like:
(See how I redid that chair I found HERE!)
If you’re new around here, Nancy is my blogging bestie and enjoys thrifting as much as I do. She blogs over at Artsy Chicks Rule, and every few months we get together to go thrifting and record our shopping trip to share with you! You can see all of our videos in the My Videos tab or visit them HERE also.
Okay so there are only so many things you can do with a silver tray, especially one that is so petite. I made a larger one over earlier this Spring. You can see that one HERE. I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
I chose to give this one a simple paint job:
You can also see I have a brand new lazy susan. My last one was huge and was a steal at only $2 at the thrift store. It worked amazingly well when spray painting. However, guess who threw it away??
I know you know who did it! I swear my Hubby would throw everything away if he could. He said he thought it was trash. Mm-hmm sure. I made him buy me a new one, and it was a lot more than $2 this time! I found this one HERE on Amazon.
I love this color combo…it’s like the perfect neutral!
I lightly sanded it and sealed it with Dixie Belle’s White Wax so I could leave some in the crevices of the handles and feet:
A little tray like this could be used for so many things, but here it is the perfect size to hold napkins:
The feet are the sweetest!
And that’s it!! The final piece of this haul is complete!
Here’s a look back at all the makeovers from This Haul of Shame!
Then this $6 Rrooster Lamp was brought up to date with a much needed redo and a new shade:
It’s amazing what a new shade can do!
All this sad chair needed was a couple of fresh coats of Cotton:
One of my favorites was this Drop Leaf Table that I was suffering from a bout of amnesia over:
Okay this might be my favorite… I love how this $5 Estate Sale Stool got a sophisticated new look:
I actually did that harlequin thing to it…good thing our styles evolve, eh?
I used this thrift store stool to share how I apply a whitewash finish using a couple of awesome Dixie Belle products:
Then I shared Two Thrifty Basket Makeovers…this one:
And this one:
I kept the second one. 🙂
Every haul seems to have a couple of baskets in it, but they also usually include a tray as well.
Here’s a Thrift Store Tray I updated using a little shiplap:
Okay this $7 Headboard turned Bench for real is my favorite:
This color is Fluff and by the way, it did fit in my Hubby’s truck…yay! And darn it…would have been a great excuse to keep it!
I couldn’t be more pleased with that one!
Can you believe most of these pieces spent years in my stash?
Do you have a favorite??
I actually pulled a few more things from my storage room that I could give quick makeovers to just to get them done and out of there. This night table is one of them:
I redid this back in 2013 when my blog was just an itty bitty baby. It was a bit bold for my taste today, so I decided to tone it down a bit. I’ll be back with this makeover and my Furniture Fixer Upper friends on Thursday!
UPDATE: No need to wait woohoo!! See how I gave this night table a sophisticated new look HERE!
See ya’ll then!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
