From Trash to Treasure

12286107_10206174003483629_167240463_nThis antique piece of furniture, literally, went From Trash to Treasure, and I am absolutely in love with how it turned out.  It was a project taken on by Jennifer Tasso, who is one of my blog followers in Syracuse, New York.  It is with her permission that I share the photo, and her DIY success story.  Can you believe, she found it on the side of the road!?!

Repurposed Nightstand

A Repurposed Nightstand is now ready for playtime as a child’s kitchenette.  It’s one of my favorite projects to date. Learn how to transform an old piece of furniture, that is unwanted and unused, into a one-of-a-kind family keepsake.  For this video tutorial, I use items found entirely at thrift stores. I use craft paints, used hardware, and even a thrift store pillowcase to achieve a darling kitchenette.  Get ready to get cookin’ with this Repurposed Nightstand!

Boys Dresser

No matter how long I’ve been doing this, I still seem to learn from every project…and in the case of this Boys Dresser, I actually learned two things:  One, sometimes I picture things way differently in my mind.  And, Two, you should really read directions.  You’ll see what I mean as you continue reading on.  For now, let me take you back to the beginning, when this cute and colorful dresser was plain white.

Furniture Flip Update

DSC_0210

And now time for an important Furniture Flip Update… (Insert news bulletin soundtrack here.)  Last month, in a Murals by Marcy video tutorial, you saw me take an old piece of furniture that had been sitting out in the elements, and had the water damage to prove it…and I turned it into this darling dresser. It’s now pretty in pink with black piping and a striped top, accented by pink crystal knobs.   Well, I’m happy to report, it’s SOLD.
