A Pretty Pair of School Desks

Two sad school desks languished in a thrift store until they were spotted by Eva at Humblebee Home. When she first saw them, Eva says "they were scratched, stained, and icky grimy but they were also DARLING." Clearly she saw their potential and gave them the royal treatment!


Baby Crib Makeover

When Rachel of Maison de Pax learned that after two boys, baby #3 would be a girl, she decided to go with all-out frills in baby girl's nursery. Opting for a Jenny Lind style of crib, she passed the crib along to her sister, who is welcoming another baby girl into the world.

Vintage School Desk Makeover

Some rescues have a really fun history, like this little school desk that got a makeover from Dee at Meatloaf and Melodrama.  Dee tells us, "This was originally my desk back when I was a lot smaller and younger--and no, I'm not that old! My aunt worked for one of the local school districts, and she saved this from being thrown when one of the older schools was being renovated." vintage-school-desk

Fun-Size Furniture Refabbed

When Emily from Elizabeth Joan Designs spotted this darling child size Queen Anne style table and chairs at a friend's garage sale, she was smitten.  But since she already had a child size table for her own kids, she couldn't justify the $20 price tag.  Imagine her delight when later that evening she discovered her friend hadn't sold the set and it was waiting for curbside trash pickup!

Bunk Bed Budget Redo

At Namely Original, Emily and her mom have been helping to put together the children's rooms in a new home.  The bunk beds that they owned had seen better days, and the owners were ready to send them to the dump.  Luckily, Emily's mom convinced them that they were worth trying to salvage.
