Do you have rubber-necker syndrome when you’re out hunting for #trashure? You know…when you walk by something that first catches your eye, but you don’t feel the pull to go get it until you walk away? It happens even to the best of us. This is how the story begins for this vintage musical jewelry box that also happens to be a mini dresser. Isn’t it sweet?!
Happy dance! Today is another fun Furniture Fixer Upper day, where my blogger friends and I get together to share some DIY fun with you. I’m taking the back-burner and letting my oldest son, Mr. I take the helm as he shares with you how he updated with vintage Broyhill Saga dresser. Isn’t it cool?
I actually had an exact match to this set in a tallboy chest which was a custom request by a client. You can see how it was updated HERE. Not only has this style has always caught my eye for the lines, but also those carved and etched star designs on the front and mirror.
Being a mom to six kids comes with a bit of pressure and a whole lotta blessing. Here I am responsible to teach, enable, and to encourage. My kids just love giving DIY a try and when my second oldest daughter, Miss S., decided she wanted to have at another large piece of furniture, I was excited to help her get started. Here is the Art Deco waterfall dresser I found for her and she excitedly decided to invest in it. Isn’t it a beauty?
As you can see, there is much that needs done with this piece, but nothing I knew she could’t handle. Miss S. has seen me work, helped me finish projects, and has done her own projects as seen in these posts. However, it’s just been awhile since she’s done something of this size, so I couldn’t wait
One of the hottest trends in interior design right now is modern farmhouse. We’re not talking about your grandmas farmhouse with beautiful quilts and handmade goodies (a style that has my entire heart), but rather a twist on that style. It offers a rustic charm, but allows for a modern interpretation with clean lines. Today, I’m showing how to take this worn piece to an updated Mid Century Modern dresser.
When I come across pieces like this I seriously get heart palpitations. I have always loved the lines of Mid Century Modern though I lean towards a rustic farmhouse style in my own home. These pieces were
Little did I know one day that I would be bringing home FOUR pieces of furniture at the same time. You would think that is normal around here as it’s not the first time, but I have been trying to scale back until I can find suitable storage. However, who can blame me when I guy offers antique pieces from a storage unit for an amazing price? This antique dresser was one of them and the subject for my Trash to Treasure post today. Read through to see what my blogger friends have for you too.
This lovely lady had a good face on front, but the sides left you wanting. See what I mean?
What’s a mom supposed to do when her kids ask to go to the thrift store? Take a deep breath and reply, “Sure, but you know, I just may find something there that I can’t leave and that means hauling it home, etc., etc.” They bat an eyelash, but I’m like…I want my storage space open just for a while! haha. Well, as I walked out to our vehicle I bid farewell to the open spaces and continued on my journey. Last week I showed you what I did with the farmhouse drop-leaf table I found that day. Today, I’m going to show you how a classic piece became a Boho Mid Century Modern dresser. Take a look…
When you’re out shopping do you sometimes buy two of something simply because it’s a good deal? I do! Especially when it comes to furniture. A local seller was offering two chests of drawers that were relatively the same size, but differed in appearance. This one below is my subject for today’s makeover. I’m going to show you how I not only repair this piece, but turn it into an industrial chest of drawers.
This particular dresser was looking like it was embarrassed – like it was red in the face. When JC brought it home I wasn’t exactly thrilled to see it as the owner didn’t describe it well. First, there was
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
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?
