Habitat for Humanity Salvage Art Show

I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful project. One day while I was doing my rounds to my favorite thrift stores my favorite ladies at the Habitat For Humanity Restore approached me about doing this “art show” I pushed back and said I do furniture not art. Well almost in unison like they rehearsed before hand… Read more →

This Guy

  Yeah I haven’t had enough coffee this morning to think of anything kitchy or catchy to name “This Guy” so there you go. I have been working on my ability to stage and think I’m doing pretty good. I definitely have to work on my pictures . I am considering buying some software to help me with that. I am… Read more →

Drab to Fab

I scored this homely guy off of Craigslist. I drove about 45 minutes to get him. When I arrived these people had a warehouse like building FULL of goodies. Loads of furniture, home accessories and various other stuff. I was drooling but didn’t have much more than the asked price of the dresser I came to fetch and not much more in… Read more →

The Empire Strikes Back

Ok yeah that was dorky but I couldn’t resist but there is nothing dorky about this beautiful Empire dresser turned kitchen island. Believe if our home did not have a built in kitchen island…well its more like a continent…I would be keeping this beauty. She turned out so much better than I even imagined. I got her in an online… Read more →

Suitcase Side Tables

As has happened with these vintage suitcases and suitcase valets I keep picking up. I don’t have much of a before picture but the after is fabulous.   This is the best before I have, in the “planning”… Read more →

Frumpy to Fabulous Frenchy

Not much to look at huh? She looked and smelled even worse than this picture shows. Probably not something I should say when trying to sell a piece. I found her at an estate sale in a dank garage under a bunch of junk. I always go for the pieces that no one wants and probably should be at the… Read more →

Grain Sack Makeover

  I couldn’t think of anything kitschy and clever for this post but I think this guy stands on his own. Yes its a he, nice masculine lines with a little curve. This was another find in the aforementioned  auction I went to with my hairdresser. Again no one saw potential in this- Yes plain ole plain. Yes I love him… Read more →

It’s All Greek To Me

This guy has gone through a HUGE transformation. While getting my hair did I ran across this estate sale that looked like a pickers paradise. It was on a Monday and my hairdresser has Mondays off . I know this because I always see him in the thrift stores on Mondays. So we decided to hit this up. When we… Read more →

I Got Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

Oh yeah its a nasty day here. Cloudy and rainy yuck. This sweet desk is a nice buttery yellow painted with my new fav paint Fusion Mineral Based paint in Prairie Sunset and Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint in Old White and sealed with clear Tough Coat. I got this at an estate sale with some of my favorite people at… Read more →

Small Space Dining

  This is ohhhh so perfect for a small eating space. Of course she didn’t look exactly like this when I got her at the estate sale. I was looking in the garage that was under the house and I spotted casters and beautiful legs and I pulled all the junk off of the top to find this: Ok she… Read more →
