Painted Picnic Baskets

Hello sweet Friends! I have a quick thrifty makeover for ya'll today! Actually I have three. For the first time in months I decided to treat myself to a morning of yard saling on Saturday. Here is what I found: Okay...I also hit up the thrift store! I think I found some fun stuff. That blue case in the front is an old hairdryer...I just wanted it for the case, but I thought that was a cool find. The table was only $20 and the mirror was only $5! Today I'm sharing what I did with … [Read more...]

DIY Spindle Headboard Bench

Friends, ya'll are so amazing! Thank you so much for your patience as I find my way through this moving process! Most of you follow me for my thrifty makeovers and I appreciate you letting me share what's going on with the house. Rehabbing forgotten treasures is my passion though and I cannot wait to put my new organized workspace to good use. Since I got the hot mess of a garage under control (see it HERE if you missed it...super exciting stuff!), I have just been working on super unfun (new … [Read more...]

How to Update Outdoor Light Fixtures the EASY Way!

Hello sweet friends! Sometimes you have to put away the fun projects and tackle the necessary, less fun ones, right? I have been busy working on refreshing a few things around our house that have been neglected. On the list were these outdoor light fixtures we have hanging on either side of our garage and French doors in our bedroom: They get direct sun most of the day and the finish has become so faded. I've been telling my Hubby that I need him to take them down for me so I can spray … [Read more...]

Repurposed Picture Frames

Hey there Sweet Friends! Well I am glad to say that I survived another annual neighborhood yard sale! Yard sales sure are a lot of work, but if you prepare well, the payoff is worth it. And we really lucked out in the weather department. It was pouring all day on Friday, but the skies cleared overnight and we had a mostly sunny day until around three when the clouds came rolling back in with a few showers. That was perfect timing! Today is not just any ordinary Tuesday, it's … [Read more...]

Lamp Makeover {& the Big Purge of 2017!}

Hello amazing Friends!! I'm back today sharing a couple of small makeovers, and one BIG purge! Can I tell you that I am just now realizing that it is actually FRIDAY? It wasn't until one of my sweet readers mentioned that she wondered what happened to me yesterday that I realized it ha ha. Oh well, a day late, but still here. :) Anyway, I spent a couple of days last month cleaning out my garage (again). I decided this time that there were some things that just had to go. We're friends, … [Read more...]

Magazine Rack Makeover

Hello, lovely Friends! I bet you didn't think you would hear from me today since I stopped in yesterday to share my Halloween décor.

I found this magazine rack at one of my favorite thrift stores for a whole $3: I swear there must have been a magazine rack collector that just gave up their … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Basket Update

Hello to the sweetest readers ever! Thanks so much for all the wonderful feedback on the doll clothes I made for my niece that I shared on Tuesday! I had THE best time making them. Today I'm sharing a quick update of this giant thrift store basket I scored recently: It's hard to see how large it is in that photo, but this thing is a good size and a bargain at $10. I knew it could be perfect for so many uses, but was a bit plain in its current state. A little spray paint to the … [Read more...]

Patio Set Makeover {Outdoor Décor Design Challenge}

Hi Friends! The rain has finally given us a break around here, thank goodness, and my back patio furniture has been desperately crying out for a redo...just in time for this month's Design Challenge: Outdoor Décor! Seriously, I think I hear it sobbing in the middle of the night, ya'll. Take a look at what it was looking like after the neglect of Winter: See what I'm talking about. Ew.
