The Blogger Spotlight: Restoration Redoux



Hi everyone! I’m Shanna from Restoration Redoux .


I’m so excited Julie invited me over to visit today and tell you a little bit about my blog. I’m a lover of thrift stores, yard sales, estate sales and pretty much anywhere you can score a great deal. The majority of my home has been decorated with goodies I have found at all of those places. I believe you can decorate your home beautifully without breaking the bank — you just have to use your creativity.

I started decorating my home with yard sale finds years ago because, at the time, it was literally all we could afford. I continue to decorate with these finds because I’m still pretty frugal and also because I think these unusual finds give your home character.

I thought I would share a few of my favorite projects with you today.

One of my most recent projects is my Craigslist bookshelf makeover. When I found these, they were in rough shape and pretty darn ugly. Bookshelves-Beforepic

With a little elbow grease and some Plaster Paint they look a whole lot better now!

This beat up armoire was another Craiglist find. It was missing lots of pieces on the sides, and the trim had to be replaced all over.


After painting this piece I decided I couldn’t part with it.

Another piece I decided to keep was this one that I found at a yard sale that had lived a very rough life.

After a little milkpaint it was so much better!

One of my most popular projects is my vintage tv that I turned into a dog bed

While the majority of my projects are makeovers, I recently built my first coffee table from start to finish.

All of the above furniture pieces I made over above were less than $50. They were inexpensive and I got to customize them to exactly how I wanted.

I also do holiday home tours, crafts, and a once-a-month decorating challenge that I would love to have you join in on!

Thanks so much for letting me come visit your lovely readers, Julie! To see more of my furniture projects click here!
