Dresser Makeover with Spray Paint!

As I've mentioned before, I can't afford to buy brand new furniture when needed. So I always shop for a bargain on used furniture. I found this dresser in good shape at Goodwill for $30! Not only did I get a great dresser for next to nothing, I got one of the best laughs of my life when the cashier looked at my husband and asked, "Will this be a senior citizen discount?" Hahahaha! Priceless. He wasn't amused.

Sewing Table Makeover

I looked for a long time for a sewing table to fit my needs. The one I had was not very sturdy and cheaply made. They just don't make 'em like they used to.

I love to yard sale (duh) and ran across this sewing table on a day I wasn't even yard saling (winning!). The gentleman selling the table had it for so long, he practically gave it away! He just wanted it to go bye-bye! $20! Can you believe it?! And with the original stool too! (I have yet to redo that)

Unfortunately, as pretty as the vintage 1952 sewing machine was, it was completely inoperable. Not quite sure what I want to do with that yet.

I wanted my table to have a bolder color. I usually don't paint my furniture bold colors, I stay in the safe zone lol. I see so many beautiful, bold teals and reds on Pinterest, but honestly where would I ever put those colors in my house? But, after making a completely unanticipated boo boo with my living room faux glaze color (oh, it's orange, that's interesting) I was more open to choosing a color I normally would not.
