Goodwill Makeover!

Since I don't have all the pictures together that I would love to post about first, I thought I would start with a little project Mike and I worked on last week. 

I purchased this old 70's style sideboard from goodwill for a mere $29.99!!! My husband thought I had gone insane when I asked him to help me load it into our car...he obviously couldn't see the hidden potential:)

Here it is before we transformed it...I had already removed the ugly old brass pulls on the front, which were all broken...

Mike helped me sand and wipe it down, and then sprayed on the first coat of paint. In retrospect I probably should have spray primed the whole piece first, but I was a little over eager. Fortunately, it worked out in my favor, because there is a little bit of dark wood grain showing through which makes for a great shabby chic look, which I love:)

After about three coats of spray paint, this is the gorgeous result!! What do you think?!?

Here it is in my craft room, which is in total transition right please overlook the color on the wall, it will be changing soon!

Mike admitted that it turned out to be pretty stunning and it adds so much functionality to  the room...

I can't wait to complete the craft room makeover and show you all the transformation!

Has anyone else completed any goodwill makeovers lately? 

I'd love to see!


  1. Oh my gosh. LOVE it. The white is perfect for that piece.

  2. the last picture looks like it was taken by a professional in a studio - I kept doing a double-take and saying to myself, is that a photo from Crate & Barrel's website? Then I saw your wedding picture and was convinced it's yours :)

  3. I love the color on your wall just so you know!! Gorgeous!! I want furniture! but living in a teeny tiny apartment doesn't give much room for furniture! That...I pray...will change in the summer!
