Thrift Store Hutch Makeover
Hello awesome Friends! It's Thursday and if you saw my super sweet makeover on Tuesday, you know I'm back today sharing what I did with this pretty hutch: You may have seen this on my Facebook page last week along with some other fun finds I scored. I sold almost all the furniture I had left in my booth in January, so I needed furniture to flip, and fast! I decided to head out for a day of thrifting last Thursday. I stopped at seven stores and found a few treasures to help get me started on…
$10 Table, Upcycled with Mod Podge & Chalk Paint
A $10 table found on Craigslist that was in a barn from an antique store liquidation. Full blog post can be found here, http://snazzylittlethings.com/upcycled-table-with-decoupage/. I revived it by mixing several Annie Sloan Chalk Paints, 50/50 Old White with Duck Egg Blue. Then I washed it with a watered down French Linen. Then decoupaged this poster to the top. Mod Podge can be tricky, but I love how it turned out.
$25 Goodwill Table Upcycle
I found this table at Goodwill, it was well made with lots of storage for $25. I figured it could be a fun, statement piece at some point, but it sat for awhile as-is in my sunroom. Eventually decided to Mod Podge some poster art onto it and ASCP in Old Violet and Clear and Dark Wax. Thinking this will be in our basement remodel (soon!) More pics of the transformation found on the blog! #powerofpaint #chalkpaint #paintedfurniture #lookforless

A Whimsical Makeover - The End Table Edition
Here is one of those times when I forgot the before picture! This is a small end table with some really great curves. I took this picture post-prime. I bet you have guessed that I did not use Chalk Paint on this one because I wouldn't have needed the primer. I have saved a few smaller items to help me use up my vast collection of latex paints. I really wanted to use some COLOR!!! I love the Chalk Paint and I love Carter's Cottage but I really needed an excuse to cover something in an…
Cora and Nora - Twin End Tables Lose Their Label "Boring"
Estate sales are a great way to find matched sets. Twin end tables are rare and are highly sought after in the furniture rehab world. We found Cora & Nora, along with their matching coffee table, last summer at an estate sale in Stevens Point. The finish was "OK" but I like my furniture to be more than "OK". "OK" is good enough for boring people. True that? So how do we "un-boring" it? The TopStep #1 – Clean wellStep #2 – SandStep #3 – Coat the top 3X with Java Gel (Java Gel tut…
