Farmhouse Style Thrift Store Makeovers

If you love farmhouse style you’re going to love these 20+ Farmhouse Style Thrift Store Makeovers that save a bundle yet look like a million bucks! Last fall I created an easy Enamelware Coffee Pot Fall Farmhouse Centerpiece from a thrift store find that I’ve had for several years. It only took about 15 minutes, which proves that farmhouse style decor needn’t be expensive or difficult to create. And last summer I made this Repurposed Tea Tins Office Organizer under an hour. Now take a {Read More}

Christmas Cookie Sheet Upcycled Memo Board

Christmas Cookie Sheet Upcycled Memo Board I survived! 15 days of chalking, that is. 🙂 Granted, it wasn’t 15 days straight, but it was a lot of chalked projects!

Market Basket Upcycled with Dixie Belle & Chalk Couture

Market Basket Upcycled with Dixie Belle & Chalk Couture Have you ever thought you totally messed up a project you were working on? Well, I thought I ruined this project but persisted, and I’m in love with the end result. It pays to be persistent and not give up on a project. It all started with this wooden market basket that I found last week when shopping with my sister.   It reminded me of a Longaberger market basket, but without {Read More}

A Tale of Two Roosters | Quick & Easy Thrift Store Upcycled Succulent Planter

Today’s thrift shop makeover is an Upcycled Succulent Planter, and it’s in memory of two roosters.  It’s a story of good and evil …

Brown and Blah to Farmhouse Style Thrift Store Lamp Makeover

Farmhouse Style Thrift Store Lamp Makeover I made a quick run into the thrift store last week hoping to find some old metal fryer baskets like the ones I have hanging in my kitchen.  But I walked out with … a lamp.  Does that happen to you? It happens with me All. The. Time! I didn’t think I really needed a lamp, but but the price good, so in the cart it went. What clinched the deal for me though was {Read More}

How to Age Gracefully (Using Antiquing Wax on Thrift Store Finds)

I love white paint.  It’s so crisp and clean looking and it’s my go-to color, but sometimes even white paint needs a friend to help it out.  For today’s project, that friend is antiquing wax.

Quick Fixer Upper Project | Lazy Susan Gets a Farmhouse Style Feed Sack Makeover

I was cruising down the road, listening to the oldies station when Barbara Mandrell came on singing “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool.” If I had a personal theme song, that would be it.

Spice Rack Makeover: Thrift Shop Flip

I’ve said before that I’m a sucker for gingham, so when I spotted this vintage spice rack, filled with jars that had gingham lids, at a thrift store – it was a given that it was coming home with me.   I wasn’t crazy about the color of the wood, and it looked a bit blah, but the shape reminded me of the wall shelf I made over last year with a Milk & Cream Co. image on it, so {Read More}

KISS: Easy Rustic Bench Makeover in Just 3 Steps!

I’ve been thinking I need to do a weekly KISS project (keep it simple stupid).  It’s a good reminder for me that not every project needs to have 20 steps to complete, and challenges me to keep projects as simple as possible. Last week when I brought home a bunch of bargains from a thrift store grand re-opening, one of my purchases was this  rustic bench. It’s super sturdy, has great wood, and I knew it wouldn’t take much effort to give {Read More}

It Does a Body Good

Sometimes you just have to milk things for all they’re worth, and I’ve been busy milkin’ this Milk and Cream Co. image like crazy this week. I brought home a large lazy Susan from a barn sale, (which was really just a yard sale in a cool old barn), and gave it the Milk & Cream treatment. …and another antique window got the same treatment, …and so did a cabinet door….and I’m still not tired of using this image, so {Read More}
