Hello diy beautify readers! I'm Christy and I blog at Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer. Thanks to Cindy for inviting me to hang out here while she is in the process of moving! Cindy and I both love finding thrifty ways to decorate our homes. Today I'm sharing a few of my thrifty makeovers with you. Let's start with this antique mirror I found at the thrift store for $10:
The mirror had become really scratched and was super heavy, so I replaced it with a chalkboard and added hooks for a little added function:
See the full mirror makeover HERE. How about this old shutter cabinet I picked up at the thrift store for only $8:
A little paint went a long way to give this dated cabinet a coastal cottage makeover:

A new paint job, a French script stencil, and some pretty paper turned this chest into a romantic jewelry box.

got a sweet makeover with the addition of these easy-to-make drop cloth rosettes:
See the complete makeover including the how-to for these rosettes HERE. How about a furniture piece to finish us off? This dresser was an estate sale find that had been hanging around my garage for way too long:
It got a more sophisticated update:

All of these projects were part of my March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 Days series that I shared this past March. You can see all 31 makeovers HERE.
I hope you enjoyed these fun updates! Thanks again, Cindy, for letting me spend some time with your awesome readers! Ya'll feel free to visit me at confessionsofaserialdiyer.com any time! :)

I told you that Christy always delivers an amazing (and thrifty) makeover, and today we were lucky enough to get 5! I never would have thought of repurposing a flatware chest as a jewelry box...and Christy's drop cloth rosettes have been on my to-do list for quite a while!
I hope you are inspired to turn your own thrifty finds into fabulous treasures for your home!
