Here’s What Your Hostesses Have Been Up To

Debra from Shoppe No.5 took a plain bed tray and gave it a fabulous upgrade using a few simple materials she had on hand, like chalk paint and fabric–and just in time for Mother’s Day, too! Was she giving her children a hint? Maybe, but she was also taking part in a regular, Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge, along with over thirty other bloggers. Great project and helpful tutorial, too.
I think most of us can relate to Lauren from Wonderfully Made and her attempt to avoid estate sales as she declutters her home. Fortunately, she couldn’t resist stopping at a half price sale where she scored this charming Vintage Glove Box. At first, Lauren wasn’t sure of the box’s purpose, but purchased it because she was drawn to the intricate design. After a little research, she learned her new find is from the early 1900’s, plus a very interesting back story, you’ll enjoy reading for yourself. Pay Lauren a visit to get the details and see the rest of the vintage treasures she scored half price!

When I first saw this incredible shabby chic globe over at Penny’s Vintage Home I thought to myself, “Where did she buy that? I want one, too!” Little did I know that she MADE IT HERSELF! How have I not thought of this? Absolute genius, Penny! It goes oh so beautifully with your travel-themed family room, but it could certainly stand alone as a great addition to any shabby chic decor collection. I’m sure your chalkboard globe was nice, but this — it’s simply stunning. (And trust me, I NEVER use the word stunning!) Readers, be sure to stop by and see not only this beautiful globe, but the lovely family room as well. I will definitely be making one of these…

Lisa from Recreated Designs found an incredible vintage buffet for $20. She fell in love with its beauty and storage potential. The buffet turned out to be perfect for her home, but she wanted to make it special. Lisa achieved her goal in a wonderful way. Her grandmother kept many cards and letters to and from her family over the years, and Lisa decided to line the top drawer with them. The vintage buffet already captured her heart but being able to see those letters each time she opens the drawer makes it priceless to her. Visit Lisa to see how to Use Cherished Letters to Make Old Furniture Special.
