This chair was headed to the dump! I intervened and brought it home. A little bit of stitching, painting, new screws, and some stencils and now I have a brand new chair that I love and enjoy sitting on! Before When I brought this chair into my garage for the makeover, I could see why it was going to the dump in the first place. The top was scratched, the seat was worn out and torn, and the legs made a creaky sound because multiple screws were loose. Even if you chose to repaint, … [Read more...] about I Rescued This Chair From The Dump And Gave It A Makeover
Wanted to share with you today the way I made a huge impact in my own master bathroom, only spending $130! These were simple and inexpensive spruces that anyone could accomplish with just a few hours of work. Our master bath, like everything in our newly-built home, had great space but was completely boring. Clean, nice, new, but boring none-the-less. Since the giant wall of mirror always seem to scream “I’m builder basic!!” to me, I really wanted to take it down and replace it with two … [Read more...] about 130 Dollar Bathroom Makeover
I got a killer deal on this solid wood armoire off of Craigslist. I actually had to write the lady back and make sure it wasn’t a typo. “Just to be sure before I drive half an hour to and from picking up this sucker, it is $15? Right?” “Yes.

I found this awesome, nine-drawer, solid oak dresser for FREE on Craigslist. The lady said she was giving it away because it had been sitting outside and the top was all weathered, and it was missing most of the pulls. Neither of those things bothered me in the least because: A) the top being weathered made it easy-peasy to sand down to bare wood, which I wanted to do in order to stain the top and B) I was going to replace the pulls anyhoo! :) Yep. That’s one weathered top alright. … [Read more...] about Two-toned Freebie Dresser
I have wanted to do a sideboard pretty much since I started redoing furniture, a desire made all the more palpable after seeing this gorgeous sideboard that my good friend Cassie from Primitive and Proper did many moons ago. (This has to be one of my all-time fave furniture makeovers of all time.) I came across this slightly-neglected-but-never-the-less-gorgeous French buffet at Goodwill and it became an immediate must have. I LOVE the bowed drawer fronts! (I had to do a little reconstructive … [Read more...] about Sultry Gray Sideboard
