Fabulous $7 Bulletin Board from Thrift Store Parts

We are entering the third trimester of this March Madness baby I've created! Day #21!! We're two-thirds of the way there ya'll! Many of you have mentioned that you will miss March when this is all over. Honestly, I will too. I have really enjoyed meeting you guys here each day. BUT, I'll still be here! Just not every day! So ya'll better make sure you still come by and visit me and say, "Hi" okay? Now who's ready for a makeover? Yesterday I shared this French-Inspired Coffee Table and today … [Read more...]

French-Inspired Coffee Table Makeover

Hi friends and welcome to Project #20 of my March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 days series!  Today is a fun one because I am not only sharing a thrifty makeover of my own as part of March Madness, but at the bottom, there are 24 VERY TALENTED gals sharing these fun projects too: But first things first...yesterday I shared my Mason Jar Blue Headboard Bench and promised something pretty to go with it.

Mason Jar Blue Headboard Bench

Welcome to Day #19 of my March Madness Series! All this month I'm sharing a thrifty makeover every day! You can catch up on all the thrifty goodness at the bottom of this post.

That's where I and a bunch of my favorite bloggy friends get together once a month to makeover a piece of furniture to fit a particular theme. This month's theme is "Distressed". I've included a few links so you can find the products I used. Read my full … [Read more...]

Owl Figurine Refresh

Hi my sweet friends and welcome to makeover day #17! I gave you a BIG reveal yesterday, but today I'll be sharing a tiny one! This was a simple makeover that anyone can do! This past summer, I happened upon the yard sale of the biggest owl collector there ever was. Seriously I've never seen so many owls amassed in one location. One of the owls spoke to me. Well not really, that would be creepy! But I just had to bring this little guy home with me...for all of 10¢. Look at those sweet … [Read more...]

Basket Upcycle

Hi friends! Welcome to day 15 of my March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 days series! We are just about at the halfway mark and I still have a bunch of thrifty makeovers coming your way. Today I am sharing how I upcycled this little basket: I found it at the thrift store for $1.25. It was probably donated because one of the handles was coming unraveled. I came up with an easy fix, but first it got a new paint job. (You know I can't ever leave well enough alone.) Adding jute … [Read more...]

Rosette Picture Frame

Hi friends! It's day 13 here in my March Madness series and today I'm sharing a super sweet way to update a plain picture frame. Frames are one thing I look out for when I'm thrifting because they can be transformed so many different ways. It's funny that I rarely use them as actual picture frames though. This time is different. I found this swanky (eh not so much) oak picture frame at a yard sale: It was in a box of frames very similar but in varying sizes. The whole box was $2! That … [Read more...]

Three French Trays

Bonjour!  It's day #12 of my March Madness series, and I am all about lovely French graphics today! I picked up this set of three trays at the thrift store a long long time ago: I paid about $13 dollars for all three, but aside from the broken handle on one of them, they were in perfect condition. I made these over to sell at my last Christmas Market show. They got a  fresh new attitude! They were painted with my favorite DIY Chalky paint recipe (using Cottage White by … [Read more...]

Faux Drawer Tray

Hi there and welcome to Day #10 in this fun thrifty makeover series! Today's makeover is pretty quick and simple. I started with this tray I found at the thrift store for $2: Can't pass up a perfectly good wooden whatever-this-is, right? There wasn't much to it, but I figured I could make something out of it. To me it looked like it could be a small drawer if it had a knob, so I gave it the feel of a repurposed drawer: Here it is in my dining room hutch holding a few … [Read more...]

Cigar Box Upcycle

Hi friends and welcome to day #7 of my 31 Thrifty Makeovers March Madness series! We've made it a whole week woohoo! Today's makeover is a quick one.  I am sharing how I repurposed this cigar box I picked up at a yard sale a couple of summers ago: I ended up paying one whole dollar for it, and figured eventually I'd do something with it. Well eventually finally came, and I turned it into... A key holder! I painted it white with leftover chalk paint, then this … [Read more...]
