The Best Repurpose Yet!!

This may be my favorite makeover yet! White wooden chest with melon stripes. Perfect for toys or blankets! This must sell too! Email me if interested.Enjoy.


ROCK-ing chair!

This rocking chair is, by far, one of my favorite finds. I sanded it down and painted it with a Valspar melon color and it came out fantastic! I AM LOOKING TO SELL THE ROCKING CHAIR FOR $45. Please let me know if you or anyone you know is interested. Spread the word : ) (the left arm of the chair is a little worn down, but nothing drastic)

DIY Cake/Cupcake Stand

I have had this pretty blue candle holder for some time now and I have already become bored of it. So.....I found a flowered plate from a thrift store for $3 and glued it to the candle holder with tacky glue and came up with this tiny cake/cupcake stand...cute right?

T-H-R-I-F-T-Y weekend continued...

Think Keith and I went crazy thrifting or what???
I couldn't pass up this pretty milk glass vase....especially for $10. Think she will be the start to my new milk glass collection. : )
I just adored this red easel!!!! Bargained this heavy piece down to $18-----could not resist!!!!!

A T-H-R-I-F-T-Y weekend

4 hours in my favorite local thrift stores!!!!Even had my lil brother join me in our secret obsession of antique shopping!!!Here is just a peek at a few of my lovely purchases!!!!
$10 wicker headboard!!!!!! My fav purchase of the day. Plan to use this as a background in my garden : )
How can you not die for this green color for $8!!!! Planning on putting a pretty white flower in it to bring out the vibrant color.
You can always use a sweet rustic stool, especially for 12 buck-a-roos. May use it as a plant stand. Any thoughts???

Before and After

Hey all! Here is the second dresser I tackled last weekend. Finally remembered the before shot : )
You can see that another drawer is missing. I still need to nail the bottom of the drawer together since I found it broken. I replaced a shelf with a wire rack to make it a "not so ordinary" dresser. Hope you like it!!!

Just a beat up lil thing......

Yesterday, I took on the challenge of re-purposing an old beat up dresser found left on the curb on garbage night. (my favorite night of the week!!!) Unfortunately, I was half way done before I remembered to take a before shot but here is the after...

Just a small jar of Valspar paint and a set of new knobs from Lowe's and the piece now has a rustic chic look with lots of old charm!
