Estate Sale Dressing Table Makeover

I left the babes and hubby at home for  few hours last weekend to go thrifting since I am really in need of pieces for my booth. It was such a disappointing day, only finding this mirror, which actually ended turning out really cute. At the time though it was my only find after several stops until I came across an estate sale sign. I love estate sales! What's even better is when I walked in the front door, the lady who greeted me announced that everything was now 75%off! What's even better than … [Read more...]

Farmhouse Hutch Makeover

I've got a pretty makeover to share with you today! You might remember me posting about a desk with French graphics that I redid this Fall. I purchased it at an estate sale at this lovely little beach cottage (if you're visiting from a mobile device, this picture is sideways and I don't know why sorry!): About six houses from the ocean...yes please! I bought several pieces from that sale including this pretty beat-up hutch. I found it in the shed being used for tools! What a crime … [Read more...]

Harlequin Bench with Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan

Can I tell you how excited I was to receive these in the mail? I was provided these products, but all of the opinions are my own.  I am required to tell you that, but of course it's not hard to rave about Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan.  I haven't met a color in her collection that I haven't liked yet. This is the little guy getting the big makeover today. I found him at a church flea market for $15. I love those! And here is his beauty shot: I chose the … [Read more...]

Dresser with Fabric Inlay

Hello beautiful people! I'm so happy you stopped by because I have a pretty project to share with you.  Today I am sharing a yard sale dresser I made over with a fabric inlay treatment. You are not going to believe what I paid for this.  Last month I was just about to call it a day after hitting up several yard sales when I happened  upon this particular sale. I spied this dresser from a mile away, but of course I thought for sure it was either sold or ridiculously priced since it was still … [Read more...]

Grain Sack Painted Chair

Well hello there!  I'm so glad you dropped by... because I love when you visit!  Come on in, I have a great chair makeover to share with you today. Do you remember these fabulous finds I dragged home from Lucketts? Remember how I was calculating how much less room I would have in my car if I brought my oldest son along?  Even with him taking up prime real estate in the back seat, I still managed to cram all of these goodies in! Isn't that bed in the back gorgeous?! I know it's a … [Read more...]

Alrighty folks, the post you've been anxiously awaiting (in my mind you've been on the edge of your seats) is finally here!

You see, I bought this dining set at a local thrift store a couple of weeks ago: Ain't she a beauty? SUPER fabulouuuus!  Love love loved it and had to have it, called hubby and convinced him why I we had to have it.  Hello, … [Read more...]

Side Table Goes Provence

  Do you love aqua as much as I do? Yes? You can be my new BFF.  No? That's okay, I love you anyway:) I really love aqua.  If it's the right shade, I want it.  It could be a doggy bowl in just the right shade and I don't own a dog...but I'm really liking the look of that bowl.  Of course it  would not come home with me...but you get my drift. I have really been itching to paint a piece of furniture in my beloved favorite color and I found just the piece. Customer Appreciation … [Read more...]

Cabinet Makeover with a Secret Identity

If you read my Top 10 Project Wish List for 2013, you might remember number 10 on my list was to replace this table: This was my husband's table, and I'm on a mission to replace all of his furniture find a piece that would provide some storage, something my very open-concept house is sadly lacking. I am happy to announce that Wish List Project #10 can officially be crossed off the list! I found this cabinet at a thrift store a couple of weeks ago.  I paid a bit more for it than I … [Read more...]

China Cabinet Makeover

OK ladies, why do we feel like a gigantic china hutch is something we have to cross off the list of must-haves when first furnishing a home? Maybe it's because our mothers and grandmothers had them? We have to have a place to display those dishes we so carefully chose for our wedding registry? Maybe a better question is, what do we do with our hutch when we no longer cherish it in a way we once did? Craigs list is full of them so good luck trying to sell it there. Mine sat in storage and then … [Read more...]
