The Best Birthday Gift Ever and an Awesome Giveaway!

Happy Tuesday, amazing friends!! Who's up for a fantastic GIVEAWAY?? This giveaway is open to my friends in the US and CANADA!! But first, I want to share what made my birthday weekend one of the best ones ever!! If you've followed me for a while, you may remember our beloved kitty, Holly: She was my baby...total lapcat. She was the sweetest ever and lived to be 20 years old! Sadly, we had to say good-bye to her in March of 2017 and it broke my heart. I knew we would eventually have … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Stool Makeover and How to Whitewash Furniture

Hello sweet friends! Today I'm continuing through my Haul of Shame with this little stool I picked up for a few dollars at the thrift store: I had several people purchase the supplies for the whitewashing technique that I used on my drop leaf table a couple of weeks ago, and so I really wanted to create a video to demonstrate how easy is it to achieve this look. This piece was the perfect piece for that! I love this look and this finish can hide all the imperfections! It … [Read more...]

Grandma’s Antique Side Table Makeover

Beautiful friends welcome back! I am so excited because today is Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday!! That means not only do I have a trashy makeover for you, so do four of my favorite blogger friends! Be sure to look for their projects at the bottom. A few years ago we acquired a stack of furniture from my Hubby's Grandma's house (like this dresser and this dresser). We also found two of these tables in the shed: I painted one to use in my office to hold my printer, and the other has just … [Read more...]

Painted Wooden Bowls

Lovely friends, I am so thankful for each and every one of you who visit here each day to see what I am up to! I just wanted to tell you that so thank you! I'm on the last couple of things left in my yard sale rescue pile, and today I'm giving some love to these bowls: I picked these up at a yard sale forever ago for a dollar each. They are vintage (maybe antique) dough bowls and go for $20-$40 dollars on eBay at the moment. However, these are in gross condition as is. I hesitated … [Read more...]

How to Make a Sign the Easy Way

Hello beautiful friends! I'm so excited to be here on a Wednesday! Today I'm joining some very talented ladies for the Seasonal Simplicity Summer Series hosted by my lovely friend, Krista from The Happy Housie. I'm also working through my latest pile of treasures...or as I'm lovingly referring to them as...my yard sale rescue pile. These are several items that I had in my yard sale pile but decided to redo instead of sell at the last minute, as well as a couple of items I tried hard to push … [Read more...]

Yard Sale Frames Rescued

Amazing friends welcome back! If you stopped in last week, you know that I am working through a new stack of treasures that I saved from my own yard sale. (I shared a few pics of our yard sale HERE if you missed it!) Well, a couple of things I was trying hard to purge, but no one else wanted them either, so I decided to give them some love as well. Today I'm sharing these frames that once hung in our old master bathroom: And yup, those would be two of my family member's feet in there. … [Read more...]

Ornate Shelf Makeover

Hello dear friends! Today I'm sharing a shelf that used to be in Brennan's room. I had it in my yard sale pile and decided at the last minute to keep it and give it a new look! But first, big news...my Etsy shop is open for business! Woot woot! It's called TheSerialDIYer. If you missed my announcement last week, I am officially a Dixie Belle Retailer! My booth is stocked and ready to go: And now I have their products in my online shop as well! You can find most of their products … [Read more...]

70’s Gold Mirror Makeover

Amazing friends, today's the day! I had two pieces left in my last haul, and I'm keeping one of them as-is to possibly use in my staircase gallery wall. That means today's the day I'm sharing my final piece of this haul woohoo! It seemed like this was such a large pile at the start, didn't it? It's also Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday, so my talented friends are sharing makeovers of their own as well. Be sure to look for their projects at the bottom! Before we get to today's makeover, I have … [Read more...]

$19 Estate Sale Desk Makeover

Amazing friends, I am so excited about today's makeover! I'm joining my Furniture Fixer Upper crew and I have the perfect project piece! My friends have furniture flips of their own to share today so be on the lookout for their projects at the bottom. I found this desk at the same estate sale where I found the fretwork cabinet and the shelving unit I already shared from this haul... It was marked $38, but since everything was half off, I got it for just $19! That was a hard deal to … [Read more...]

Estate Sale Bookcase Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! Did you miss not having a fresh new makeover from me on Tuesday? I've spoiled you, haven't I? Well hopefully I'll make it up to you today! If you missed it, on Tuesday I shared 10 tools that are must-haves in my workshop, a great resource if you are just getting into the upcycling game! I shared a peek at today's makeover on Tuesday and in my Vintage Night Table post I shared a couple of weeks ago, it's this bookcase I scored at an estate sale for $40: I loved … [Read more...]
