Hotel Headboard Repurposed

Hello beautiful friends! Today I'm sharing what I did with a headboard that has been hanging around my stash since the end of 2014: That would be almost four years! I came across a large stack of these at a thrift store and they were all marked...ready for it...$3.49!! Here is the tag from one of them: A nearby hotel must have been doing some updating and donated several of these. I bought three of them. I redid the first one back in 2015, and the other two have been sitting in our … [Read more...]

Rustic to Coastal Cabinet Makeover

Hello beautiful friends! Can you believe it's May already?? April flew by in a flash! I have a pretty little makeover to share with you today! I spied this rustic cabinet at the thrift store a few weeks ago: It was marked $12, and I just couldn't pass it up. It was hand-made and that always makes my heart go pitter patter! Although it is lovely as is, I envisioned a lighter, more coastal feel for this handsome cabinet: I decided to whitewash the body of the cabinet and … [Read more...]

Hello amazing friends! It's Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday and I am so excited to share a makeover with ya'll today! No I didn't stop the presses here amidst the new house chaos to update a piece of furniture, I planned ahead for this one.

It's Thursday and if you saw my super sweet makeover on Tuesday, you know I'm back today sharing what I did with this pretty hutch: You may have seen this on my Facebook page last week along with some other fun finds I scored.

Vintage Coffee Table Makeover

Hello Awesome Friends! Are ya'll up for a makeover today? I'm actually sharing a makeover of a makeover ha ha! This is the second makeover for this rather dated coffee table: I originally found this at a yard sale for $15. One of our themes for Themed Furniture Thursday at that time was "Pottery Barn Knock-offs", and this was a bit similar to the Tivoli coffee table by PB, so it got  a sleek black makeover: I had decided that I would share this for TFT then paint it white and … [Read more...]

How to Make a Tray from a Frame {My Best Selling Tray!}

Hey there, crafty Friends! Do you know what the top two sellers in my booth are? The first is chalkboards, hands down. A close second is trays. Buyers love things that serve a purpose.

That original post is buried so deep in my archives, that I thought I'd share another similar … [Read more...]

Kids’ Table Makeover

Hello Friends, and welcome to Themed Furniture Thursday!! How about I'll share my project, and you see if you can guess the theme? I shared a peek of this kids' table and these two chairs on Tuesday: I found the table at the Salvation Army the same day I bought this dated dresser I recently shared, and the chairs were part of a set of four I found at a yard sale last Summer. I paid about $27 for all three pieces. The chairs were in rough shape, but a good sanding fixed them right … [Read more...]
