0000Two weekends ago, we headed out to a couple small, town-wide sales about 25 minutes from our home. We went to the same town-wide sales last year without much luck, but this year, our luck changed. We found a lot of fun treasures! I set it all up in the garage so you can see everything (except the radio cabinet on the right) I picked up that weekend. Does it become an official ‘problem’ if the goal is to bring home so many great things that you can only get one car (or no cars for that matter) in the garage? 🙂 This particular… Read More
0100Happy July 4th Eve! Today, I am over at Shelstring Blog to share my summer home tour. Here is a sneak peek: We are starting some different makeovers in our home so I only took a few pictures inside. Most of my pictures were taken of another place I love to decorate….. the yard! I hope you will stop over to Shelstring blog and see my entire tour and the other tours in this series.
0000Last year, I found a beautiful desk at a yard sale. The owner had stripped it so she could paint it and never got around to it so she was selling it. I loved the desk and was so happy it was all prepped and ready for me to take it home and paint it. I am sad to report that this past winter, I noticed the wood on the top of it started to split pretty bad. I knew I would have to add a new desk to my list of things to look for during my spring and summer… Read More
0201When I started going to yard sales years ago, I would only buy things that I could use right now. I would pass up pieces that I loved because I didn’t know where I would put them or what I would do with them. After coming home so many times and kicking myself for not getting something I loved, I stopped doing that. Now, if I love it, I buy it. With that said, I don’t want you to think that I will be on the next episode of Hoarders: Buried Alive. Our home is not big so I am constantly… Read More
0000 When Porch.com contacted me and asked if I wanted to join the “5 Bloggers on the Best Home Projects to Tackle under $15”, I jumped on it. I love the challenge of making beautiful things for your home without breaking the bank. Heck, that is what this entire blog is mostly about. I live and breathe it and have a blast sharing my ideas on this platform. When I heard what this challenge was called, I had a hard time picking which project to share. There are so many things you can do for under $15. I decided to… Read More
0000I have another great dresser makeover for you today! Furniture makeovers are some of my favorite projects and every time I finish a piece, I get excited to share it here with you. About a month ago, my dad called me and told me he thought I should stop by a yard sale he was at. Usually when my dad calls me and says that, I know that he thinks he found something I might want, but he is not sure enough to just buy it. I headed right over. This is the piece he wasn’t sure about. It had… Read More
