Thrift Store Throwdown – The Results

Two weeks ago I shared what I received from Courtney at All Things New Again for a Thrift Store Throwdown Challenge.  15 bloggers were assigned the task of shopping for another blogger at a local thrift shop for items that could be repurposed.  Today we are sharing the results.   When I pulled this purse […]

Best of the Weekend

Welcome to Best of the Weekend!  The weeks are flying by all too quickly this summer and I’m enjoying each and every day of my summer break.  I’m not going to depress myself by thinking about how few weeks are left.  It’s been such a good summer and I’ve been able to catch up on […]

Sewing Cabinet to Outdoor Bar

It’s time for another round of Themed Furniture Makeovers with my DIY Furniture Gals.  Each month we challenge each other to make over a piece of furniture with a theme.  This month the theme is outdoors.  My mom’s friend picked up this sewing cabinet from the curb knowing that I would enjoy making it over.  […]

Nightstand Makeover

I have the best husband ever.  Would your husband go thrifting with you on a beach vacation and then be willing to make room for furniture in an already crowded vehicle?  Sometimes I wonder how my man puts up with me.  🙂  We found this nightstand at an OBX thrift shop and boy-oh-boy did it […]

Best of the Weekend

Hello and welcome to Best of the Weekend. What are you doing this weekend?  I’m a part of an antique and vintage pop-up sale on Saturday and I’m hoping to empty out my basement of all of those projects that I’ve been hard at work on.  If you are local, come on out to Millstone […]

Antique Post Card Display

I love using the antique post cards that I mostly inherited as a part of my decor.  Over the years Mr. SP and I have collected many post cards from Lynchburg and Central Virginia but we’ve never displayed them so that they could be enjoyed.  I’m joining my Farmhouse Friends group to share my antique […]

Easy Bird Feeder

Has a month already passed by since the Power Tool Challenge Team shared our outdoor themed projects?  It must be being off from school that makes the time pass by so quickly for me in the summer.  Our theme for July is “Anything Goes”, and I can’t wait to see what my friends share.  I […]

Thrift Store Challenge

I’ve joined in on a fun thrift store challenge.  15 bloggers were assigned the task of shopping for another blogger at a local thrift shop for items that could be repurposed.  The budget for the items was $15 and they were to be sent by July 1. I was lucky to receive my items at […]

Best of the Weekend

Hello and welcome to Best of the Weekend.  Since Monday was a holiday, this week seems to have flown by quickly.  I’ve been busy in the yard this week and also with getting projects ready for my July 16 pop-up sale in Madison Heights at Millstone Mercantile.  It’s going to be a very hot weekend […]

Thrift Shop Shelf Makeover

Before school ended I found this shelf at a local thrift shop and thought it would be fun to give it a makeover.  This ended up being an easy but time consuming project. I started by sanding and cleaning the piece thoroughly.  The holes on the front were filled with wood filler and then sanded […]
