Farmhouse Hutch with Vintage Green Pottery

The Christmas décor has been put away and it’s time to decorate for winter. I loved displaying my vintage punch bowl collection along with my vintage Santa boots on my farmhouse hutch for Christmas. After putting these things away, I wanted to use this hutch to display another collection, this time some of my vintage […]

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 […]

Pedestal Bowl Makeover – Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge

Three Tiered Shelf Makeover

Knitting Basket Makeover (Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge)

I truly have to stop myself from going into a thrift store any time I drive past.  I love going inside to see what treasures I may discover.  A favorite thing to do with the treasures that I find is to think of a way to update them or use them in a different way. […]

Mid-Century Coffee Table Makeover

Last summer I scored a mid-century coffee table at Goodwill.  I gave it a makeover that I loved.  I didn’t need this piece in my home and I’ve tried to sell it, but haven’t been successful.  Since it would not sell, I decided to give it a second makeover. This is what this mid-century coffee […]
