Do you ever do something just because you want to? Like, eat an extra cookie, or take a drive down a country road…just because you want to. Those kinda things are liberties that can break a funk we are in, but the key is limiting it so it doesn’t get out of control. Well…in the last week I managed to acquire 6 large pieces of furniture all at once. ahem. So, you can bet I’ll be firing out some furniture makeovers in the next few weeks. haha! For instance, I’ve always wanted to work on another farmhouse drop-leaf table like this, so I bought it. Nuff said.
Isn’t it the best when you love to do something to find kindred spirits who love the same things too? That’s how I feel when I get together with my blogger friend for Furniture Fixer Uppers Day. It’s all about sharing what we love and inspiring you. You’ll see their work in a bit, but let me share with you how I took a thrifted (and very dated) table and turned it into a farmhouse coffee table.
Nothing like a 35% off coupon burning a hole in your pocket, right? I was shopping for different items for my home and kids and spied this table. I quickly gave it a glance then got down on my hands and knees to see if it was solid wood from underneath. Yeah…there is no shame in my game. tsk.
Who knew such joy can be found in someone else’s junk, right? I mean, I’m all about trashure and potential seen in the left behind. But… I really get excited when I find a piece with potential. (like do a happy dance excited and look around to make sure no one else will take it or steal my idea. hahaha!) I’m a hoot to shop with, in case you didn’t know. Just ask my 6 kids who join me on every adventure. Take a look at this old barn screen because it’s going to be turned into rustic farmhouse wall art. Fun!
Sometimes a girl’s gotta do something for herself, right? I mean, let’s face it. I’m a mom to 6 amazing kids with a business and blog. More often than not I put myself to the side to tend to others. For a few years now I have been saving, no, hoarding (even dreaming) about this wood below. This is a story how this curbside trashure was turned into my reclaimed wood planter box.
There’s no doubt that the average joe would have walked right by this wood. It’s broken, it’s cracked, dirty, and even has worm holes all over it. Only silly ol’ me would see it then quickly make sure
Do you look at pictures in magazines and long for the farmhouse look in your home? Wipe the drool off your chin and head to the thrift store, my friend. There is a plethora of potential waiting for you around the corner – seriously! I have shown you mini-makeovers like this before and I want to continue to do so as so many love them. Here’s is a selection of goodies I nabbed and I’m going to show you how you can turn them into thrifted farmhouse decor for your home.
I might just be a little bit giddy. I might just be a little bit over-the moon. Why? Because we are finally back at our kitchen remodel that we started in January of 2016…yes, almost 2 years ago!! If you follow me on social media, you’ve seen our trials, but the best place to catch up is here. Today, is Furniture Fixer Uppers day, and my dated stools are about to become farmhouse bar stools. See the end of the post for more fun from my friends!
Earlier this week I showed you I took a curbside changing table my dad salvaged for me and turned it into a cart. I promised I would be back with more of my dad’s haul for me, and today’s the day. Out of the loot below, I’m tackling that table and turning into a farmhouse side table. Let me show you how easy it can be to update your home into the farmhouse style.
Okay, so this table is not only showcasing that gorgeous orange stain (insert sarcasm), it is also standing on a broken leg. (aka. hot mess) See the back left?
Y’all ready for this? It’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday! My blogger friends and I love to share with you fantastic projects to inspire you to give DIY a try. My project piece for today is my very own blanket chest. It’s looking kinda shaggy, isn’t it? Let me show you how I took it from shaggy to rustic chic. (aka. #trashure) You’ll get to see my friend’s projects at the end.
I originally purchased this piece to redo thinking it was wood when I bought it sight unseen. Little did I know it ended up being coated in multiple layers of paint…ugh. If you remember from this post, I promised myself to never buy another painted piece to work on.
Sometimes you fall in love with a design style and it may seem out of reach, but it isn’t. One of the popular trends right now is modern farmhouse chic. Crisp lines with touch of rustic. Today is Furniture Fixer Upper day and I’m excited to share with you an simple update that turned this outdated piece into a farmhouse chic cabinet. Be sure to read through to see what my blogger friends have created for you too.
