I ventured down into the hellish heat of Phoenix on Saturday for the first (hopefully annual? semi-annual?) Arizona Bloggers Tour de Thrift. Thanks so much to Jax from Aly & Ash and Ashley from Cute as a Fox for doing a smashing job organizing this very successful event. We met for brunch at Mimi’s Cafe, then headed off to three area Goodwill stores. The best part, I have to say, were the full-to-bursting-with-fab-and-useful-stuff swag bags each attendee received! Paint from Krylon and … [Read more...] about Tour de Thrift and some Sneak Peeks

This is actually NOT a projector project (though I do have one more in the works to show you.) :) If you are one of the few people out there who have yet to enter the giveaway, there’s still time before the Artograph Projector becomes someone else’s this Friday!

If you are an avid Google Blog Reader user like I am, you may not have noticed that our Twice Lovely digs have been freshened up thanks to the lovely Lauren over at Designer Blogs. I was fortunate enough to win a blog makeover from my friend Christa over at Stories of a House. When I started emailing back and forth with Lauren about design ideas, I realized that there were things about our blog design that I wasn’t willing to throw out the window. I wanted to keep some elements the same and … [Read more...] about Guest Post from All Things Thrifty
Holy Shlamoly! Do you guys know how to come out for a great giveaway, or what?!?! A huge welcome to all our new readers. And a great big thank you for all your lovely comments about my newly made over dresser! My Damask Dresser had a decidedly modern feel to it, so I decided that up next, I would do something with the projector for all you French, distressed, hand-painted furniture lovers out there (and I bet there are more than just a few.) I picked up this coffee table at a community yard … [Read more...] about French Medallion Coffee Table

Have you ever been perplexed about how to get a cool design on a piece of fabric, or a picture in a book, or a graphic on your computer onto a wall or a piece of furniture? Well it’s something that’s plagued me for a while. I’m decent at freehand painting, but when it comes to symmetrical designs, or repeating designs or getting something really tiny to be huge, I have been stuck, so I started looking around for an opaque projector I could use for that purpose. I spoke to the lovely people at … [Read more...] about Damask Dresser & Artograph Projector Giveaway!
You may remember this fun armoire I redid a while ago? It was in fantastic shape when I got it, except for having no doors. A few weeks later, I came across yet ANOTHER great armoire with no doors, for the same low, low price of $15. Having been built up in my ability to fabricate some new doors from the first one, I snatched it up without a moment’s hesitation.
