A Dresser Makeover on a Whole New Level: How to use Table Legs to Transform an Old Dresser


I love making over old dressers. It's one of my favorite furniture flips. I just can't resist when I find an old, well made dresser for free, or extremely cheap. It's like they scream out to me: "Make me pretty again! I won't let you down like those new fangled dressers that can't even call themselves wood! Look, I even have dovetailed drawers!"

While I was on my baby sabbatical from blogging I still continued with multiple DIY projects, taking pictures of my progress along the way in the hopes that I would get back on the blogging horse.

Back to Blogging, with a Passion

Hello friends, old and new. It’s been a while....a long while. Let me tell you, I’ve missed blogging. So. Much.

But life, now with two kids, had just become way too hectic and busy and crazy for me to find the time. With a colicky baby, a rambunctious kindergartener, my full time job, the housework, etc. etc. etc. I barely had time to breathe. 

So what have I been up to, you say, besides living the working mom nightmare, er dream, I mean. Well, I decided to start a side hustle and opened an Etsy shop, Blue Sparrow Vintage Co to earn some extra cash and fulfill my constant itch to make things. I also started a short lived blog (don’t worry I wasn’t cheating on Thrifty Artsy Girl, just expanding my horizons 😉) with my friend Tarah that was about DIY and mom life. Unfortunately, neither of us had the time to blog because of all the above named reasons that I had for taking this long sabbatical from Thrifty Artsy Girl. And of course I was still working hard on numerous projects around the house, taking pictures along the way so that I could blog about them when I finally found the time. 

I'm ecstatic to say that time is NOW! Yay!! I'm hoping to post once or twice a month, just like before. I'm also super excited to introduce a (sort of) guest blogger, Cheap Creative Guy, who is none other than my other half Cory, who will be blogging about his own thrifty, artsy endeavors.

I'm going to dive right back in with a bunch of posts about my son Jackson's big boy room 😊. I made an inspiration board to give you guys a little sneak peek at some of the design elements of the room.

Bigger Family, Bigger DIY Plans

Hey there strangers 🙂. I feel like it's been a year since I've written a post! I guess it's only been around 6 months, which is close enough 😉. Let me tell you, this pregnancy really kicked my butt. With working full time, family festivities, being sick everyday, all day, and with little to no energy left after the first two activities, I was lucky to even make a dent in the multiple projects I wanted to finish. We'll just call this break from the blog my baby sabbatical 😉. Thankfully now that the worst is over I'm slowly getting back to DIYing 😊.

After 6 months of complete and total silence I figure I should share with you all the reason I've been MIA ☺️. Here she is, our beautiful 6 pound 3 ounce bundle of joy, Brynlee Annelise. She arrived after just three hours of labor on October 25.

A Nursery Fit for a Princess


So if you haven't guessed it yet by the title of this post (or if you don't follow my Instagram or facebook) then I'll just come  right out and say it: We're expecting our second little one! And it's a...
