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...]

Desk turned Dressing Table

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. Remember when Jack wanted to go to the thrift store to find a piece to paint, and I ended up finding this cool sofa table and this pretty curvy dresser that were both half off? Well Jack found this desk, also half off: He ended up getting it for $20. Then … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Hutch Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! 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.

I stopped at seven stores and found a few treasures to help get me … [Read more...]

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.

I first made this tray about three years ago for a Get Your DIY On challenge and have continued to make them for my booth ever since. 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...]

Coastal Tray Makeover

Hi Friends! Are you up for a thrifty makeover today? I found this super large oval tray at the thrift store  a few weeks back. This thing is really big! It was $12, but I just had to bring it home: This was gorgeous at one time, but had really started to show its age, so I decided to give it a completely new look: Doesn't even look like the same tray, right? I painted the tray in a mix of Annie Sloan's French Linen and Pure White. Then I created this graphic in Photoshop … [Read more...]

Reclaimed Wood Side Table

Welcome to day #28 in this thrifty makeover series! Can you believe it's day #28?? Where did March go? Today I'm proud to say that I eliminated yet one more thing that has been mocking me from my to-do pyramid. It started with these old decking boards I found in the woods near my house: I used some of them for the seat on this Headboard Bench I shared the other day: Farmhouse Headboard Bench And while they were fresh in my mind (and out from under a pile of junk that was on them … [Read more...]
