After working on a few craft items for our office/craft room makeover, last week I got started on giving some furniture a new look. The first piece I tackled was an old desk. I've had this desk for at least twenty years and over that time, it's been painted a few different colors. The last time it . . .
This month, our blogging group is participating in an Upcycle Challenge. I love giving thrift store items makeovers, so this challenge was a fun one. We could spend no more than $20 for the item and the materials needed for the makeover. If you've seen any of our thrift store makeovers, you . . .
We've got another thrift store find makeover to share today. I found two chargers at Goodwill recently for $1.99 for both. That was a good price and I knew I could use them both for a couple of projects I had in mind. One of them got a patriotic makeover. This Stars & Stripes Chalk Painted . . .
I bought an old recipe card stand at Goodwill a few months ago. It needed a makeover, but it's just the kind of project I like! I changed it from drab and outdated to a piece that fits in with my coastal kitchen decor. I only paid a couple of dollars for it and I had all of the supplies on hand to . . .

~Charleston Room Makeover on a Budget Series~ As I got started on making over this room, I knew I wanted to change the dark furniture pieces. I love the style of both of these side tables, but they needed to be updated with some color to fit in with the overall look I'm going for in this . . .
Some people call them sun rooms. Some call them Florida rooms. I’ve seen references to sun lounges and sun parlors. There are many variations of what these rooms are called and how they are constructed. Some include an outdoor living space, while others are completely enclosed and built as an . . .
Charleston Room Makeover on a Budget Series We are happy to be a part of the June Centsational Salvage Challenge, 2015 brought to us by Erica from On Bliss Street, Jason from East Coast Upcyclers, and Timisha from Toolbox Divas.
