$5 Yard Sale Dresser Redo

Hi Friends! Welcome to day #8 of my 31 Days of Thrifty Makeovers Series! Today is extra special because it's also Trash to Treasure Tuesday (my favorite!), so my creative thrifty friends will be sharing a makeover of their own as well. :) Let's get to it! Today I am sharing the makeover of a dresser that cost me all of $5 dollars at a yard sale last Summer: Yup. Five whole dollars. That was the price marked on the bottom drawer there. I think this was one of those purchases where you … [Read more...]

30+ Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer Furniture Makeovers

Hello lovely Friends! I'm always so happy when you stop by. If you are new around here, welcome! I'm so excited that you have decided to follow along with me! It's been about a year since I rounded up a few (or 30) of my own furniture makeovers, so I thought it was time to put together another. Most of these pieces were absolutely nothing fancy to begin with, but a little TLC went a long way. Let's start with this little shabby sewing machine table. It was really quite beat up when I found … [Read more...]

Empire Dresser Makeover

Hello lovely Friends and welcome to Themed Furniture Thursday!  This month's theme is storage, so what better project for this theme than a dresser, right? Can I please just tell you first how relieved I am that this dresser makeover is done?? This piece gave me SO MUCH trouble. You don't hear me say that very often, but let's face it, sometimes it's just good to hear that others struggle too, right?  I feel like I need to vent about my struggle with this troublemaker. This story does have a … [Read more...]

Shabby Little Dresser

Hello lovely Friends! I get a LOT of questions about painting furniture. I am always more than happy to answer any questions that come my way, but I thought it was time I put together one helpful post sharing the start-to-finish process of what I do when painting a piece of furniture. That way I can refer any questions to the post, and it can easily be pinned for future reference. I had plans to share that today, but as I was editing photos (I took a ton of pics!), I realized I had way too … [Read more...]

French Provincial Chest Update

Hi Friends! It's time for Themed Furniture Thursday! That's where I get together with a bunch of my furniture paintin' friends and we all transform a piece that fits a particular theme. This month's theme is animals. Wait until you see how creative my friends have gotten with this one! You can see those at the bottom of this post. I decided to transform this little French provincial beauty: She was  a thrift store find and was marked at $49, but all furniture was 40% that day yippee! … [Read more...]

Antique Dresser Revival

Hello there! Are you in the mood to see a dirty old dresser made beautiful again? Then come on in, kick off your shoes and have a seat! A couple of weeks ago I spied this little lady at my all-time favorite thrift store: It was a bit more than I like to spend at $79 (I am such a cheapo), but I just couldn't leave her behind. I brought her home, cleaned her up and painted her in this beautiful blue: Of course if I'm going to add a splash of color to a piece, it's usually blue. … [Read more...]

Fabric Inlaid Dresser

Hi Friends!! It's time for another thrifty makeover today! Last week we decided to take our boys and my nephew to Ocean City, MD for the Holiday weekend. It was such a blast...we were total tourists ya'll and it was so fun! But when I got back and checked on my booth, it was very sad. I mean that in a good way...I had sold several furniture pieces including a huge hutch that left a big empty space: It looked more like this before I left: See more of my booth HERE. I … [Read more...]

The Rest of the Oak Bedroom Set

Welcome to day #24 of this wild and crazy March Madness series! Can you believe I've we've made it this far? I'm so excited to share the rest of my parent's bedroom set today. Yesterday I shared the piece with the prettiest and most unexpected results, my Mom's dresser: The bright new paint job and the addition of the feet made such a difference in the whole style of this piece. The hardware didn't hurt either. And you didn't even notice the pretty curves at the bottom before. So … [Read more...]

Oak Dresser Makeover

  Hi friends! Welcome to day #23 of my March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 Days series! Today I'm excited to be sharing part of my parent's surprise bedroom set makeover. It's an oak set that they've had for as long as I can remember. My Mom has been trying to sweet talk me into painting this set for the better part of the last year. Of course I would do anything for my Mom, but this set was going to take time, and it just never seemed to be the right time. Then a couple of … [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...]
