$4 Thrift Store Lamp Makeover

Hello amazing Friends! I have a sweet little makeover for ya'll today! You may remember this lamp makeover I shared back in February: Unfortunately someone must have knocked it over while it was in my booth and it smashed, however they did save the shade for me. Then a couple of weeks ago I found this lamp at the thrift store: The same exact lamp only in a different pattern! This one was missing its shade so it was perfect! When I went to redo this one though, the burlap … [Read more...]

$2 Thrift Store Frame Repurposed

Hello amazing Friends!! Thank you for all the positive feedback on my DIY Rolling Umbrella Base on Tuesday! It is working out great so far! Today I've got a fun little upcycle for ya'll. I shared a peek of today's project on Tuesday...this $2 thrift store frame and these spindles: The frame was small but nice and deep, perfect for a little tray!   I had painted the frame last week, but was undecided on what I would use as the bottom of my new tray. Then on Saturday, … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Inbox Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! On Tuesday I shared a peek at today's project. Apparently there are a lot of these floating around out there because several of you mentioned you had one too! I'm talking about this wooden inbox I scored at the thrift store for $2.25 several months ago: Anything that is made of wood catches my eye when I'm thrifting since I know paint can work wonders, and as soon as I saw this on the shelf, I knew just what it could be. Painting it and adding handles turned … [Read more...]

Desk turned Dressing Table

Hello amazing friends! It's Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday and I am so excited to share a makeover with ya'll today! No I didn't stop the presses here amidst the new house chaos to update a piece of furniture, I planned ahead for this one. Remember when Jack wanted to go to the thrift store to find a piece to paint, and I ended up finding this cool sofa table and this pretty curvy dresser that were both half off? Well Jack found this desk, also half off: He ended up getting it for $20. Then … [Read more...]

Curvy Thrift Store Dresser Makeover

Hello there amazing friends!! I have a brand spankin new makeover to share with ya'll today!

Jack was on the hunt for a piece to paint at the thrift store. … [Read more...]

Roadside Footboard Repurposed

Welcome to my favorite day of the month, amazing friends! It's Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday and my friends and I are all sharing trashy makeovers! I love it when I actually have trash to share. I picked this footboard up off the curb on the way to my Mom's house in 2014: The only reason I know when it was is because I shared this picture on Instagram: That poor baby. He's like...no big deal, just a giant bed hanging over my head. There actually was a headboard and … [Read more...]

Hey there Sweet Friends! I'm glad I could make some of ya'll feel better about your own hoarding tendencies on Thursday ha ha.

I have been working on that set of chairs I uncovered during the big purge, and I will be sharing them on Thursday, so today I'm sharing a quick but cute little makeover! I spied this lamp at the thrift store a couple of months ago: Yep it's a lamp! Cute, huh? It … [Read more...]

Wooden Thrift Store Box Update

Happy Tuesday, amazing friends! Today's makeover is a small one. A little wood box has so many potential uses, so pretty much any time I see one, I buy it. This one was probably the saddest one I've come across: I'm not sure what purpose this served, but what was up with that faux wood contact paper? Or maybe we should be asking why this faux wood contact paper was ever even a thing? Actually I think I remember this look being in our kitchen growing up...I think we had counters that … [Read more...]
