2 DIY ways to upcycle a large wood wire spool

Thrift Store Desk Makeover

Thrifted entryway shelf makeover

I have a fun thrift store makeover to share with you today!  I know some of you love to see these and I sure do love to do them too.  I just don’t need as much furniture and accessories as I once did so I don’t do as many thrifted or yard sale makeovers as […]

I showed you last week this wood end table that I picked up for $8.00 at a yard sale.  I had been looking for a wood end table to replace the glass/marble looking one we had currently and this one was the perfect size and I just loved the design of it! It honestly was […]

Navy blue painted dresser makeover

You might be a bit surprised at this post.  See I bought a dresser at a yard sale (that part is NOT surprising at all since I currently have like 5 dressers in my home that I bought at a yard sale or flea market )  BUT, I actually painted the dresser something other than […]
