It’s that time again! Time for my friends and I to share our makeovers for Furniture Fixer Uppers Day. This is always a blast for me because I love to share a new makeover and show you what my friends are up to as well. You’ll see theirs features in a bit. Today, this beautiful Lexington dresser is going to help me show you updated furniture can be super easy.
I will be perfectly honest that I really did NOT want to do anything to this piece since it’s beautiful as is. However, the fact that it had scratches and I had no interest in refinishing it since it is made of
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.
This set may not look like much now, but with a few simple tricks I can make them take on a whole new vibe. Which shall I start with? hmmm…how about the
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!
In our defense, we were plugging along as best we could with JC working his full-time job, plus our business, and me with homeschooling our 6 children, and running
When you head the thrift store and get a good haul, it can leave you feeling pretty pumped. That is until you look at all that you brought home and the realization hits you that you brought home a whole lotta potential and now there’s work to be done. For real, right? Today, I’m showing you a few of the items I acquired and how their thrifted makeovers can help make your house your home on a budget.
Let’s take a look at what I thought was worthy purchases. First, an unfinished stool, a wooden chest, and a corner cabinet. All are solid wood, all are handmade, but all are most definitely
Time for some fun! Today is Furniture Fixer Uppers day and you know this is right up my alley, right? I mean, what’s more fun than getting to get creative and share the projects done by my blogger friends? It’s all to inspire you. Today is all about this antique chest I found while thrifting.
This never fails to happen to me. I walk into the store knowing full well that I don’t need another piece to work on and am there on a solitary mission. Then, there it is…a big ol’ sign saying 50% off furniture. Well, any sane person couldn’t ignore that, right?
If you are just joining in, we have been working in our back yard this summer giving it a much needed facelift. First, was our DIY compost bin, then our DIY fire pit. Today we are sharing the next stage of our renovations – our DIY garden arbor with play area. It began like this…
Yep, a hot mess. Each winter we run through a WHOLE LOTTA firewood. This is our wood pile that is normally full to the brim. However, I snapped this at the beginning of spring when we can break out of our cabin fever and get outside to clean up winter mess. Normally this is covered with a giant tarp, so my kids stick their bikes here to keep them out of the weather as our shed is full too. (next on my hit list)
Since 2003, I have had the pleasure of looking out our dining area and seeing this…
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.
I choose this cabinet because I had a custom request for a client for a piece to fit in a kinda awkward spot in their home. They had limited space and didn’t want
Are you ready for this? DISCLAIMER: This post contains potty talk. If you have ever had a child, you know what I’m talking about. Just wanted to be upfront and everyone is on the same page. hee hee hee. Now, doesn’t every good mother scout the curb when they are walking their kids home? I mean, who would pass up the opportunity to carry this home? Yep, that’s a potty chair and we gonna have a potty chair makeover today, folks.
What kid wouldn’t love this little gem with the built-in TP holder and book rack? It’s like a little throne or something. I actually spied this this night before on an evening walk with my kids. We had to walk back that way the next day to go to our homeschool gym class and figured if it was still there I would grab it before the trash truck did.
The owner was sitting outside and we are acquainted, so I asked
A couple posts ago I mentioned that I had been on the hunt for a chair to go with a desk, but somehow came home with much more. ahem. That’s what happens when you hit the thrift stores. We have a few locally and I’m ever so thankful. However, what ends up jumping in my truck? Not a chair that I needed. Oh no. An adorable vintage tea cart. tsk. Does this ever happen to you? (please say yes so I know I’m not alone, k?) This is perfect for today’s Furniture Fixer Uppers! You’ll see more in a minute and have a chance to WIN.
Can you blame me? I love tea carts and have had several in my possession over the years, but this one just won out as my favorite. Though to look at it you may think, meh.
It is made out of simple pine and has that super dark stain to hide the
