Faux Bamboo Dresser Makeover

These last few weeks I have been working on completing my daughter’s room which is the large bonus room over the garage. After painting one of the biggest projects I needed to complete was the update to an estate sale find I scored a few months back.  I love anything bamboo so when I ran […]

Thrift Score Thursday No. 140

It’s that time again, time for my monthly #ThriftScoreThursday post and my favorite finds..including my own. As most of you know before moving to South Carolina we lived in Germany for two years but in all that time and of all the things I bought I never bought a cuckoo clock. Okay I did buy one little tiny […]

Best Thrift Store Furniture Makeovers

You all know by now that I am second hand junkie but not all my finds are ready to move right in. Most of them are diamonds in the rough but fortunately I am good at spotting potential. Today I thought I’d share some of my favorite makeovers that brought thrift store finds from frumpy […]

Thrift Score Thursday No. 131

Happy #ThriftScoreThursday guys, I know I’m usually sharing a thrift store makeover but this week’s find is more about the story. This weekend was our neighborhood yard sale so I went to a whole slew of sales just a block or two from my house.  I made a loop around the neighborhood scoring a few […]

Thrift Score Thursday No. 130

It’s #ThriftScoreThursday and time rock those thrifted goodies. This week I scored a great pair of Dixie furniture nightstands that with just a little bit of love were ready to go. When I spotted them in the thrift store they were sitting on the floor and looked like this. I thought to myself those would […]

Thrift Score Thursday No.129

Happy #ThriftScoreThursday guys! This week I finished a project I wanted to share but also tell the story of a lesson learned (again!) Spoiler alert, it has a happy ending but still is a valuable lesson to share. I ran across a yard sale not too long ago and spotted this little table from the […]

Thrift Score Thursday No.128

Hello my friends, my favorite day of the week is here…#ThriftScoreThursday! I love that each week I get to share all my thrifted goodies. This week was one of those weeks when all the stars or at least the Foo Dogs aligned. I’m not usually a hunter of blue and white decor but when I […]

Thrift Score Thursday No.127

Happy #ThiftScoreThursday everyone, how’s the junking going this week? I have bought a few little things but I have mostly been trying to get some of my “project” pieces finished up so I can get them out of my garage. This week I finished up this cute vanity set to take over to my store […]

Thrift Score Thursday No. 126

It’s time again for #ThriftScoreThursday and this week my find is pretty colorful. I actually bought this pretty little needlepoint pillow on a trip to Savannah where I did some antiquing with a friend.  The pillow was sitting right in the front of the store on an orange mid-century chair the exact same color as […]

Thrift Score Thursday No. 125

Hello All, it’s time for another addition of #ThriftScoreThursday. Have you guys been out hunting this week? I have to admit, I have been a little slow on the thrift game this week. It seems like this time of year so much is going on and I’m spending so much money in other places that […]
