$10 Yard Sale Chair Makeover

Hello, lovelies!! I'm back today with another piece from my Storage Room "Haul" of Shame! It's a chair that I picked up at a yard sale the Summer before last. Yes, I've held onto this chair for two years! Can I just tell you again how much I love that these "hauls" are helping me tackle all these pieces I've been hoarding?! If you need to move a few pieces along, maybe try gathering a few and snapping a photo...then print it out and cross out each item in the photo as you tackle it...it … [Read more...]

Hello beautiful friends! Have you ever passed on a chair because it had a damaged seat?

French Linen Chair

Hello sweet Friends! I have a quickie makeover for ya'll today! I mentioned the other day when I shared my antique dressing table that I was working on a chair for it.

Meet the chool: It was a sad chool, but for $7.50 at the thrift store,  I dragged its sad little self home. I was going to paint it white to match the dressing table, but … [Read more...]
