$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...]

Ornate Thrift Store Boxes

Hello beautiful friends! I have whittled down my latest thrifty haul to just a few remaining pieces. Today I'm sharing these two ornate boxes I picked up at two different thrift stores: I always pick up pretty boxes when I see them. They are quick and easy to paint up and usually sell quickly. I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love. I started with the larger of the two: I paid more than I would have liked for this one at $4.25, but I couldn't … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Boxes Reloved

Who's up for a thrifty makeover today? I'm always up for transforming forgotten treasures into brand new functional decor! Beautiful friends, today I am sharing how I reloved two such pieces: They might be showing their age, but they still have a lot of life left to live! I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.  Let's start with the recipe box that I scored for 99¢: Personally I prefer hand-written recipes or recipes that I have printed out … [Read more...]

12 Thrifted & Upcycled Box Makeovers

Hello sweet friends! Today I'm sharing several storage boxes I've redone over the years, and I thought just maybe this might inspire a thoughtful gift idea for someone special! Anyone out there finished with their Christmas shopping already? I bow down to you! It seems I can never finished early! This package pyramid did arrive on our doorstop yesterday though, so this should help! These certainly don't look like anything you'd want to give as a gift, right? A little paint magic … [Read more...]

Wooden Thrift Store Box Update

Happy Tuesday, amazing friends! Today's makeover is a small one. A little wood box has so many potential uses, so pretty much any time I see one, I buy it. This one was probably the saddest one I've come across: I'm not sure what purpose this served, but what was up with that faux wood contact paper? Or maybe we should be asking why this faux wood contact paper was ever even a thing? Actually I think I remember this look being in our kitchen growing up...I think we had counters that … [Read more...]

Wooden Box Update

Hello lovely Friends! I'm back today with a quick little makeover for ya'll.  There's a thrift store by my Mom's house that I always stop in whenever I'm out that way. That's the same store where I found my 99¢ table. When I stopped in there last week, I found a few small things: The little pitcher was my favorite find. I can always use a pretty white pitcher. All of these were on the clearance...does it get any better than clearance at the thrift store?? (No. The answer is no.) Today … [Read more...]

Mini Chest Makeover

Hey there, my awesome Friends! I missed ya'll on Thursday! I had a great long weekend, but I'm pretty sure I went up a pant size. I ate a half a batch of chocolate chip cookies myself. In one night. (And they were totally worth it.) Now it's time to get back to work stocking my booth for the Holidays, so I can pay for all the things I bought on Black Friday. No I didn't go out and fight crowds...I found all kinds of great deals online this year! My kind of shopping! I told you last week … [Read more...]

CD Holder Update

Hello, my dear Friends! I usually post on Thursdays, but I took the day off yesterday since it was my birthday! My day started out a little something like this: Ignore the overgrown everything...all the rain we got from the recent Hurricane made things that hadn't grown in a month due to the intense heat this Summer, sprout like crazy, and the hubby just sprayed to kill the crabgrass before reseeding for Fall. Perfect timing, right? This surprise was all thanks to my sister! I … [Read more...]

Stinky Gross Flatware Box Makeover

I really just could not think of a more befitting name for this post. I found this flatware box at the thrift store for just under $5. Here it is as I found it: Ooh good find, right? There are so many possible uses for  a little chest like this... Except it needed a little TLC: Ok a LOT of TLC. So gross. It smelled so musty and yet I brought it home anyway for $5 more dollars than I should have. I would never have had the nerve to donate this! But luckily for me, someone … [Read more...]

Plain Old Box gets a Harlequin Twist (& a How-to!)

Hello friends!  I have another simple painted project for you today.  Don't you just love a good before and after?  How about we do a good after and before?  ...As in this awfully cute chest: Here it is before: Many of you may know what kind of chest this is...   Were you right? It's a flatware chest!! I know you all want to go dump out your granny's silver so you can have one of your very own! Although I do generally love a touch of purple velvet now and … [Read more...]
