Kids’ Table and Chairs Makeover

Amazing Friends, I finally finished the little table and chair set I brought home from my booth to redo! That set has been in my booth for well over a year and I just could not figure out why it hadn't sold.

The Antique Armoire with the Missing Glass

Happy Thursday, Friends! Today I'm sharing another favorite from the archives. I spied this antique cabinet at the thrift store near my house last year. It was $79 and probably totally worth that, but the door was missing the glass and didn't close real smoothly so I passed. I went back a week later and it was marked to $49! I just couldn't pass it up the second time: It doesn't actually look too bad in this photo but it wasn't great in person. I'm not exactly sure what was built up on … [Read more...]
