$15 Yard Sale Bookcase Makeover

Hello beautiful friends! Now that our kitchen makeover is complete (see the big reveal HERE!), I am back to my favorite thing of all: giving new life to forgotten gems! Today I'm getting together with my Furniture Fixer Upper girls where we all share furniture flips. Be sure to look for links to their makeovers at the bottom! My project for today is this bookcase I spied at a yard sale a couple of weekends ago: I was out running errands that Saturday morning and of course I just … [Read more...]

Estate Sale Bookcase Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! Did you miss not having a fresh new makeover from me on Tuesday? I've spoiled you, haven't I? Well hopefully I'll make it up to you today!

Reclaimed Wood Bookcase

When I bought … [Read more...]

Bookcase Makeover & Styling {A Décor Challenge}

Welcome to our newest decorating challenge, Styling Bookcases. This theme really is a challenge for me for a couple of reasons. One, I do not own a bookcase. (Unless you count the one in my five-year old's room.) And two, how can I possibly guide anyone on how to style them properly if I don't own any myself? How then am I going to participate in this fun décor challenge? No I didn't steal the bookcase one from my son's room, I found one at one of my favorite thrift stores and gave it a … [Read more...]
