Distressed Dresser DIY

Dresser Makeover

The Hippie Haus Wife

I have always had a fondness for all things vintage (or antique, rustic, old, dated, etc). But I never really got into the whole “distressed” thing as I thought it always looked, well, crappy. I mean, who would pay good money for something that looks like it was dumped on the side of the road and left to rot (ok, maybe not that bad, but still)? Well, apparently there are a lot of people out there who would in fact pay a lot of money for these kinds of things.

By way of the internet and Pinterest, (yes, in my mind there is a difference in the internet and Pinterest- and anyone who is a hardcore “pinner” will know exactly what I mean), I had started to see a lot of distressing projects pop up, and with modern advances in crafting mediums, some of them were actually looking pretty cool…

Decoupage To The Rescue! Lost Basement Table Gets A Makeover

Basement Table Makeover

On The Upcycle~

Last stop before curbside in our house has always been the basement.  This poor glass table had been banished to the basement for seven years, the entire time we have lived in our house!  It was pushed in a corner and with flower pots and miscellaneous basement junk stacked on top of it and covered in spider webs. My husband and I try to keep the basement clean, and clutter free, but it is not always easy.  As much as we dislike our basement’s dampness, cement walls and floors, the spiders seem to love it! That’s good because they help control the other bugs crawling around down there! yuck!  If any item deserved a little TLC, and a makeover it was this table! I cleaned it in our utility sink and brought it upstairs.  The glass was easily removable, and the table cleaned up nicely.

Coffee Table Before and After

I am doing this whole retro/beach theme in my new apartment and I am in love with this surfboard coffee table, however I don’t have $400 lying around to buy it. So when I saw this little black coffee table on Craigslist for $7 I knew I had to have it. Craigslist is my best friend for cheap used stuff.  It was a great shape and the PERFECT size for my tiny living room. It was old, had lots of dings and even had “Nick was here” carved into the wood veneer (thanks a lot Nick!)

Step One: Sanding. I positively hate sand paper, so when I saw these nifty sanding sponges at Home Depot. I decided to give them…

Mirror on the wall

her garage

 Mirror + Pearls ($3)+ Lace  (on hand)+ hot glue (on hand) + Golden acrylic paint ($1.50)

Oh my hot glue gun, how I love thee!

To personalize our builder standard mirror, I gave it a coat of golden acrylic paint.  Then came the pearls – found them at Joann’s and used my 50% off coupon. I was itching to do more, so I mod-podged lace on the borders to add texture. Note to self : Take along-the-way, step by step pictures.

Mod-podged lace acts like paintable wall-paper. It absorbs paint and maintains the detail. For craft projects, if you can’t find your favorite lace in the right color, dig through your acrylic left overs! I used a sponge to paint over my lace.

Lace and Pearls on the mirror

Turns out I am obsessed with mirror frames. I made some additions to this one. What do you think?

Goodwill and thrift store shopping

I just needed to get some feedback from my followers. Is it just me or are prices for certain items going up in price at thrift stores and goodwills.

I don’t know about you but I believe there is someone that works for goodwill or the thrift stores that watch blogs, etsy shops etc to see what vintage items are selling for and they increase there prices.

Please let me know if you have seen the same things happening in your areas. Example I use to be able to find milk glass for a lot cheaper now it is still a deal but I seem prices from $6-$28 in the goodwill some even chipped or broken.
