Simple Side Table Makeover

Welcome, amazing Friends! Can you believe it's the last day of May already?? Where did the month go? Today I'm sharing a petite side table I found at an estate sale TWO YEARS ago. I have no idea why I have resisted this makeover for so long, but it probably had a lot to do with the two words excellent and condition. It's so much harder to find motivation for a piece that really doesn't need "fixing": Am I right? I finally decided that I just needed to get it out of the garage, and … [Read more...]

Cottage-Inspired Sewing Machine Table Makeover

Hello lovely Friends! It's my favorite day of the month...Trash to Treasure Tuesday!! The second Tuesday of every month, four of my favorite trash to treasure makers and I get together to bring you a fabulous makeover on the cheap, and you know that's my absolute favorite! Today I'm sharing how I gave this little $20 thrift store sewing machine table a cottage-inspired makeover: I love the height of these tables to use as regular side tables. I was wandering through Michaels one day … [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...]

Harlequin Painted Side Table

Hi my sweet friends! I have been knee-deep in floor demolition at my house this weekend, but I am thrilled to say that I actually started laying my hardwood floors today...can I get a WOO HOO?! I've been sharing some of my progress on Instagram, so you can hop on over and see what I'm talking about if you like! I painted a couple of pieces for my booth last week before demo began so today I'm sharing one of them with you. This is one of three tables I picked up at the Salvation Army at the … [Read more...]

Grey & White Painted Side Table

Who's in the market for a little thrifty makeover today? You're in luck! It's day #29 in this fun March Madness Makeover Series, and I have another one for you! Today I'm sharing the transformation of this little side table: I found this at a thrift store for $49.99 a month ago, and I remember thinking the details on this piece would paint up beautifully. The price was too much though, especially for this cookie cutter furniture store table. The legs screw right off, no dovetails etc. … [Read more...]

Sewing Cabinet Side Table

Woohoo day #5! Are you enjoying March Madness so far? I hope so because I sure am! Today's thrift store deal was this sewing cabinet that I picked up for $9.95. It has definitely seen better days: The top folds out to the side to reveal a work table and a space for a sewing machine. I love sewing tables as side tables because they are a great height. Here is her makeover: Paint is like magic in a can! I sanded this a bit more than I usually do because this was a … [Read more...]

Lacy-Drawer Side Table

Hello lovely friends, I've got another sweet makeover to share today! Take a look at this little fixer upper I found at the thrift store for $7: It's hard to tell by this photo, but it has a horrendous paint job and the black you see around the flower detail? It's ink pen.  The paint was put on so thick in areas that I knew I would have to either strip it or sand it. I chose the latter and gave it a good sanding with my orbital sander before repainting. Here is its sweet … [Read more...]

IKEA Rast Hack

Hello friends! Have I got a fun makeover to share with you today! A couple of months ago I was contacted by marketing for  Hickory Hardware, asking if I would be interested in participating in an Ikea Rast Hack challenge. That's where you take a very simple piece of Ikea furniture and put your own twist on it. The closest Ikea to me is about three hours away, so I don't shop there too often. I have seen some amazing hacks out there using their basic furniture pieces though, and I was … [Read more...]

Flower Stenciled Side Table

It's time once again to join together with some of my favorite blogging friends to bring you a fun themed furniture makeover.  This month's theme is flowers. Last month's theme was "Bold". I redid a $5 yard sale chair. The theme for the month before was "Metallic". I shared a thrift store side table. I found it a bit more challenging to incorporate flowers into a piece of furniture, but I think I pulled it off. This table was a $5 yard sale find, and kind of boring as is: Here is … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Side Table Goes Glam

Glam side table? I know that doesn't sound like me, does it? Recently a few friends and I were invited to challenge ourselves to makeover a piece of furniture, but the kicker was, it had to be a metallic makeover!  You know I love a challenge, but this was a tough one for me. Then I remembered I had this little thrift store beauty (not so much) that's been sitting in my garage forever, just begging for a makeover. I paid around $25 for it and I knew it would be perfect for this project. I … [Read more...]
