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 . . .
It's one of the rare occasions when we're sharing some decor from Gloria's place. While I love all things coastal and creating new decor from thrift store finds, those aren't exactly Gloria's style. Not at all, really. Her place is a mixture of glam, sophistication, and fun with lots . . .
Happy May Day! Spring is in full bloom and whether you're decorating with faux flowers or fresh ones, May Day has always been a day to show off some floral decor. I found a long wall basket at Goodwill recently and even though it was black and not at all spring like, I knew all it needed was a . . .
Coastal Vanity Box ~ Thrift Store Find Makeover. I've been lucky lately to have found some thrift store items that are just right for makeovers. I wanted to add a little more coastal decor to our guest bath and I was looking for a small box that could be used as a vanity box with a few items that . . .
Lately, I've found a new love of copper accessories for my kitchen. For a while, I had been admiring various pieces while out shopping, but I'd stop myself from buying anything because I just didn't think I could make it match my decor.

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 I changed it from drab and outdated to a piece that fits in with my coastal kitchen decor.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 . . .
I've got another thrift store find makeover to share with you. I know that we all access recipes on line, but I still love having printed recipes. I've got lots of recipes printed out and they've been crammed into one of my kitchen drawers. I've been on the lookout for a box that would be the right . . .
Adding more coastal decor to my guest room makeover was easy and inexpensive. Finding various items at thrift stores and storing them away until I think of something to do with them is a frequent occurrence. It's hard to pass up items that are less than $2.00 when I know that sooner or . . .
Keeping in mind that I set a very small budget for a guest room makeover, I needed to find ways to add some wall art cheaply. This project was as inexpensive as it was easy!
