$30 Thrift Store Dressing Table Makeover

Happy Thursday Fabulous Friends!! If you stopped by on Tuesday then you know that today I am sharing the reveal of the best thrift store find I've had in a long time. I scored this gorgeous dressing table for a mere $30!! Can I get a woohoo?? I actually thought I remembered it being $35, but then I looked at the tag again: That Goodwill never has good furniture but when I saw this, I couldn't pay for it fast enough. It could also be a writing desk, but the pretty curves make it … [Read more...]

The Antique Armoire with the Missing Glass

Happy Thursday, Friends! Today I'm sharing another favorite from the archives. I spied this antique cabinet at the thrift store near my house last year. It was $79 and probably totally worth that, but the door was missing the glass and didn't close real smoothly so I passed. I went back a week later and it was marked to $49! I just couldn't pass it up the second time: It doesn't actually look too bad in this photo but it wasn't great in person. I'm not exactly sure what was built up on … [Read more...]

Antique Fixer Upper Table

Hello amazing friends! Today I am sharing a project that is long overdue. For my last craft market way back in 2013 (it was a sea of cottage white but you can see it HERE), my Mom decided to paint several pieces to sell too. She sold most of what she painted except for a few tables. One of the pieces was a quirky antique table. After it didn't sell at the market, she put it up in her attic. About a year later, she was cleaning up there and asked if I wanted to take the table and do something … [Read more...]

Antique Cabinet Makeover {& an Alternative to Replacing the Glass Door Panel}

Do ya'll love chocolate as much as I do? There are few things I love more, but how about as a theme for a furniture makeover? Today my furniture flippin friends and I are all sharing furniture makeovers inspired by chocolate. Say what? A few weeks ago I spied an antique cabinet at the DAV thrift store near my house. It was $79 and probably totally worth that, but the door was missing the glass and didn't close real smoothly so I passed. I went back a week later and it was marked to $49! I … [Read more...]

Antique Folding Sewing Table

Hi Friends! A few weekends ago, I had a fantastic yard sale day that looked a little something like this: One of the yard sales I almost didn't stop at was one held by a paint supply distributor! What are the chances?? There really wasn't much to see from the street, but I saw stacks of blue tape and that's what made me get out to look. Look at the goodies I scored! The tape was a painter's tape that I hadn't heard of before, but he was selling it for $1 a roll, so I didn't have … [Read more...]
