Girl's Vanity Table Set Before Makeover by Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

Amazingly enough, I now have two teen drivers in my home. {{gasp!!}} I am not that old(ish), am I? Sigh… Well, in order for said teens to have wheels, they need money. And, in my mama-lovin’ way, I do what I can to help my kids earn the money they need. My daughter, Miss C, has reworked plenty of furniture in her time (SEE HERE). She is hoping for a project piece to sell to raise said funds.

I hopped online and found this cute girls vanity table set. Thankfully, we both agree it is Read more

Vintage Folding Chairs with Grain Sack Stencil

It often seems that when I find one good thing, I find multiples. And…just like a good junker, I can’t just take one. Nope, I gotta have ’em all. haha.

First, I’d like to brush you up on your vintage folding chairs background (as if you had one). These beauties are made by Louis Rastetter & Sons of the The Solid Kumfort company. Also, it’s crazy that they can date as far back as 1900.

Serpentine Dresser with French Country Style

“It’s pretty beat up…” those words are music to my junk-lovin’ ears. I purposefully don’t work on pieces that are just fine only to paint them. However, I look for the unwanteds, the misfits, the beaten down beauties just waiting for new life. Enter in this vintage serpentine dresser.

This ol’ gal was hiding away behind some clothing racks and bins with no price tag. When I inquired with the owner on asking price, she wanted to verify the cost with her husband. That quote above were her words, and it made me think to myself… Read more

Painted Entertainment Stand in Hale Navy

It is on a daily basis that I get asked questions either about a project that I have worked on in the past or a person has their own project they’d like some advice on.

Her second-hand find is about to become a painted entertainment stand. Check it out.
