Square Coffee Table Redo

Have you ever searched high and low for something and then discovered it was right in front of you all along? Amazing friends, that is exactly what happened to me! I have been on the hunt for a new coffee table since we moved in and have had no luck. Much like when I was looking for a kitchen table (See the one I ended up with HERE if you missed it.), I even went searching every furniture store in my area totally willing to pay retail if I found something I liked. Nope.  And of course I've … [Read more...]

White Washed Sofa Table

Hello amazing friends! I have a brand new makeover to share today! :D Jack had decided that he wanted to pick out a piece of furniture to work on to make a little money, so we stopped by the thrift store closest to my house a few days ago and all furniture was 50% off. That never happens, but they were overstocked so it was our lucky day. The first piece with potential I spied was this sofa table: Jack wasn't interested in it, so I nabbed it for myself. It was marked $34, so we got … [Read more...]

$5 Thrift Store Tray Makeover

Hello lovely Friends! I've got a cool little makeover to share with ya'll today! On the same trip where I found the large basket I shared a couple of weeks ago, I also picked up this tray: I rarely pass up a good tray and for $5, all this tray needed was a little TLC, so in the cart it went. The bottom looks like a cool metal, but it's actually just paper. I decided instead of trying to remove the paper to get a decent  painting surface, I would just cover it up. Enter these two … [Read more...]

Child’s Antique Desk Makeover

Hey there, awesome Friends, and welcome to my favorite day of the month: Trash to Treasure Tuesday!! I know I share trash-to-treasures all the time, but on this day I get to bring you four more from my treasure maker friends as well! I am always excited to see what they've done. Look for the links to their makeovers at the bottom! I'm sharing this child's desk that I scored for $5 on the only yard sale shopping day I had this Summer. (I still cannot believe that myself!) It is very … [Read more...]

Bookcase Makeover

Hey ya'll!  If you missed my big announcement on Tuesday, you can read more about it HERE. In a nutshell, I'm out shopping the World's Longest Yard Sale right now in search of great finds to help furnish a Habitat for Humanity home to surprise the new homeowners! I'm probably somewhere in Ohio right now. :) Thanks to GMC for the invite to participate in this amazing adventure!! The show must go on around here though and I've got a pretty cool update to show you today. This month's Get Your DIY … [Read more...]

Take a Number {Fence Scrap Wall Décor}

Hello lovely Friends! On Thursday I shared this sweet little bookcase that got a whole lot more character with some paint and the addition of these old fence pickets I white-washed: Reclaimed Wood Bookcase I had to take apart the fence section I had in order to do it and was left with three of these pieces: Of course you know I can't throw anything away, so I decided to white-wash one of them along with the pickets for the back of the shelf. Then as I was digging around my garage, … [Read more...]

Reclaimed Wood Bookcase

Hi Friends! Today I'm joining my Power Tool Girl Crew to bring you a simple project I did using power tools! I love these group challenges because they motivate me to get stuff done! This month's theme is "Summer". I wanted to do something with this little bookcase I picked up at the thrift store for $12 a couple of weeks ago: It looked like someone had some sort of electronics on the bottom shelf that needed to be vented, so two big holes had been cut out on the back. When I bought … [Read more...]

Window Shelf

Hi Sweet Friends! Ready for a trash to treasure transformation?  Good! Because it's Trash to Treasure Tuesday! Today I'm sharing what I did with this $5 yard sale window: I picked up several windows this Summer and had yet to do anything with them. For today's transformation, I decided to create something simple with one of them. I sifted through my curbside-found wood stash and found the perfect pairing for one of the windows to create this: This window was not painted, so … [Read more...]

Beach-Inspired Bathroom Cabinet

Don't you love a good before and after?? I know I do! Today I'm sharing this little cabinet that I recently found at the thrift store for $8: The painting on this was beautifully done, but definitely in need of an update. One of the doors was warped also, but I knew exactly how to remedy that! I love when things work out! I didn't really do much except paint, add a graphic, and swap out the doors, but the change is pretty cool, don't you think? A big shout out to my fence picket … [Read more...]

Reclaimed Wood Organizer

By now you know when I say "reclaimed wood" I'm not talking about century old barn wood right? It's just a fancy name for old fence pickets I found on the side of the road lol.  As in this pile of pickets I found on the side of the road: Okay technically it was in a cul-de-sac in a neighborhood I was yard sale hopping in. See said yard sale in the back ground? "No thanks, I don't want to buy anything you are selling, but can I have this pile of trash?" Ha ha. This sounds a lot like the … [Read more...]
