Radio cabinet to wine cabinet

Sadly, the wonderful season of garage sales is coming to an end here in Michigan.  I did manage to grab a few good finds these last few weeks.  I have been working hard on this radio cabinet I found.  As soon as I saw it I knew it would become a wine cabinet.

Burlap silverware basket

This metal silverware basket definitely performed its duty, but it needed something.  Burlap maybe?

Painting a bedroom set

My neighbor and friend has been talking about painting her bedroom set for the last 3 years.  It is a pine and she just hates the orange tones.

Shabby chic shelving

There is just something about shabby chic that I love.  Are you with me?  White and distressed with some curves.  This shelving was screaming shabby chic to me.

Fixing another chair to be glamorous

Yes, I love me some chairs!  I have been finding them everywhere lately.  I love this style and thought it would work perfectly with my Hollywood desk.

Waterfall dresser in blue and white

Oh how I love a good curbside find, but this one left me wondering what I was thinking.  It had layers and layers and layers of paint.  It took 4 times to strip it and even then it wasn't completely clean.  The little grooves on this dresser had me scraping them out for hours.

Chair to vanity seat

This curb side find has been sitting in my basement for about a month.  I just loved the legs and if nothing else, I could use them for something.  As I was browsing some of the link parties the other day, I saw a vanity seat that looked just like a chair with its back cut off.  I clicked over, but it was really a vanity seat.

This  gave me an idea.  Why not turn this chair into a vanity seat by cutting off the broken section.

Save that chair!

It seems like my treasures come in waves of the same things.  That ever happen to anyone else?  A short while back it was dressers, then tables and now I'm onto chairs again.  This particular chair was picked up from a garage sale from a friend.

French wooden box

This awesome wooden cheese box was found at a "free sale" near me.  I knew I could make it something special with a little paint and some transfers.

Furry footstool

This vintage foot stool is in excellent condition, but needs a new style.  This is a very simple makeover that anyone can do.

Going homemade

Like many out there I have concerns over what is being put in our food and our products.  All of the GMO (genetically modified) ingredients, artificial what nots, hydrogenated oils, and don't forget the arsenic (found in rice).

Fun multi colored dresser

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day!  Tomorrow we start a new school year and my kids are excited. That is a good thing.  Anyways, on to our post for today:

I had a special request from my sister.  She needed a new dresser for my nephew and wanted something colorful, yet distressed.
