Thrift Store Art - I love spending time flipping through the artwork at my favorite thrift store. There is so much art in this world, something for everyone to love - and art at thrift stores makes it affordable. After filling my art gallery bathroom with thrift store art, I didn't expect to buy . . .
This is one of my favorite mid century modern end table makeovers. Yesterday, a couple of my girlfriends, my niece and I hit seven thrift stores. SEVEN. It was exhausting but a lot of fun to be with people who are as excited by thrift store treasures as I am. While my one girlfriend found lots of . . .
Happy St. Patricks Day! In my family, we have a few Patricks - my dad, my brother and my nephew are all named Patrick - and my son's middle name is Patrick too. I'm waking up my little guy this morning with a bagel covered in green cream cheese! He's either going to love it, or think it's . . .
I've developed a new addiction: faux bamboo furniture. But the problem with vintage faux bamboo is that it is usually pretty dated and dingy. I've painted a few pieces so far, and it's always a struggle to get a smooth finish on it. A few months ago, I found this faux bamboo buffet table at a . . .
My sister, MB, is having another baby girl in a few weeks. To say it simply, I'm pretty excited about it. She will be my parent's 15th grandchild - crazy huh? My niece, Charlotte, is getting a whole new bedroom set because the new baby will be using her "baby" furnishings. And this is where I . . .
Let's face it, I don't have any more space in my house for any new furniture. So, when I headed out today to the Big Sale at Faith Farm, I knew I'd be buying some pieces to re-do so I could sell them. But, I think I might have gone a little overboard today. I just know that my husband probably will . . .
There isn't much that we still need for the house, in terms of furniture. However, I keep trying to find interesting pieces to make the house feel more like a home. In the last few trips to my favorite thrift store, I've found a few things I think are fun. Want to see? This bull I found for . . .
One of my favorite things to do is to go thrifting. I love to thrift for a few reasons, first one being that I truly believe that we should recycle and re-use as much as we can - it's just good common sense. I don't know how many times I've seen perfectly good pieces of furniture left at the curb, . . .
Last week, after I dropped my son off for school, I found myself with many hours to kill and no desire to stay home. I had a ton of errands that needed to be run, so I packed up the car with all the things I needed to either return or mail, and got all the boring stuff done in about an hour. Then, I . . .
A few months back, I found this beautiful china cabinet. Okay, so maybe it wasn't so beautiful yet... Well, that's not the whole cabinet, because when we got the cabinet into the house, it was too heavy for me to pick up and move by myself, so we just placed the top on the ground so I could . . .
