Painted Christmas Village

Hello sweet friends! The Thanksgiving Holiday here in the US is over and that means the Christmas season has officially begun! I'm kicking it off with a super simple makeover. I found these mini Christmas village houses at the thrift store for $6 for a set of six: It's no secret that I love all things Christmas village. You can visit my treasured Christmas Village collection HERE if you like. One of these didn't really match the others so it's not … [Read more...]

Painting the Smalls #3

Hi awesome friends!! I'm back today sharing a third round of smalls for my booth! Smalls are the little things I need to help fill my booth, and honestly they are what pay my booth fee many months! These smaller makeovers are very simple, so they don't each need a post of their own, but together they are a fun bunch! Here is what these items looked like before my paintbrush and I got a hold of them: There isn't anything super exciting about these pieces. They all came from the thrift … [Read more...]

Patio Set Refresh

Hello sweet Friends!! I am excited today to share some of the progress we've made out back! You may remember me mentioning that I still had the loveseat to my outdoor patio set when I shared the two side chairs that went with it in this post. I redid those for our side porch and was debating whether or not to redo the loveseat to go along with them out there. However the truth is, we rarely sit out on our side porch, so I hated to waste it out there when we really needed seating for our deck … [Read more...]

Cane-backed Chair Makeover (with Spray Paint!)

Hello sweet friends! I have a quick makeover for ya'll today! I have been working on a few outdoor projects recently and was hoping to photograph them this weekend, however the weather has not been on my side for taking photos! So instead I worked on a couple 0f projects in between rain showers, including this chair: Perty, eh? This is one of two chairs I bought to use in our Halloween display last year, as part of a dining table set up: Ooh spooky! (See more of our Halloween … [Read more...]

Easy Pitcher Update and Spring in the Dining Room

Hello lovelies!! I have a super easy makeover to share with ya'll today! Also the last time you saw my dining room was for Christmas, so I thought it was time to share it again sans the Christmas flair. First up, here is the cutie pie pitcher I am making over today: I found it marked down not once, but twice, at the thrift store to $1.98. This is a nice pitcher and it is a great size. I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love. I didn't really mind the … [Read more...]

DIY Spindle Wind Chimes

Hi my beautiful friends! Today I'm sharing what I did with a bunch of spindles I found at an estate sale for $2. If you've visited the last couple of posts, you know that my hubby booked a last-minute Disney Cruise to celebrate the sale of our old house, which had been on the market since last August. (Definitely worthy of a celebration!) Well needless to say, we had a blast! These are just a few pics I had on my phone. We also visited the Kennedy Space Center the day before we left on … [Read more...]

Painting the Smalls (for my booth!) Part One

Hello beautiful friends! I am well on my way to filling my booth back up after the sad state I left it in for several months after our big move. What my booth is still desperately lacking though are smalls. Smalls are all the little things that help keep sales going when shoppers aren't in the market for furniture. I just can't seem to keep them. Every once in a while I will go rummaging around in my stash and pull out a bunch of things that only need a quick paint job and go to town. I don't … [Read more...]

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...]
