Toddler Chair Makeover

The Bunch Blog chairs before

Tracie from The Bunch has a cute little toddler who didn’t love her high chair anymore.  Luckily, Great-Grandma had picked up these little chairs at a garage sale and passed them on to their family, so Tracie an her husband decided to use them to make a new spot for their daughter to enjoy her meals.

Mid-Century Mod Cedar Chest

Red Telly mid century cedar chest before

Marcie of Red Telly was out shopping with her husband when they came across this 1957 Lane cedar chest.  She loved the chest immediately, but almost walked away since she wasn’t sure where she would put it in their house.  But Marcie’s husband told her he knew she’d regret it if she didn’t get it, so with his encouragement, they brought it home.  (He sounds like a keeper, Marcie!)

Nicki of Fiveorite Things is lucky enough to have friends that keep an eye out for furniture on the roadside.  One of her friends spotted this dresser at the neighbor’s curb on trash day, and–like any true friend would–hauled it into her own garage until Nicki could come for it!

At The Weekend Country Girl, Karen says that when she found this dresser on the roadside waiting for heavy trash day, it was in pretty bad shape.  But it had good bones:  solid wood and dovetailed drawers, so she convinced her husband to help her get it home.

At Eat.Sleep.Make., Shannon shares a great little upcycling project.  She and her husband get monthly samples from Birchbox, and they arrive in these great little boxes.  Something as cute as that couldn’t just get tossed, so Shannon’s been saving them until inspiration struck.
