Thrift Store Makeovers

My little picture

Just a little quick before and after makeover to share with you from the thriftstore. I ended up painting both the candle sconce and cutting board black. Then I dry brushed some antique medium over top and lightly sanded the cutting board. I added the little flicker light and some sweet annie. The little basket picture I just painted the antique medium over top of the color it had a little too much pink/purple in it. I think it goes nicely and contrasts with the berries better.

Here's the before of the cutting board


Here is what I did with it

Before of Sconce shelf

Here's what I did with the sconce. I need one more thing to make a grouping here. This was the Jefferson picture I got with my gift certificate from my dh.

Have a wonderful day!



  1. Carey~Those are great makeovers!!
    But I have to say, I can't believe you painted over those great paintings! LOL
