Drab2Fab Friday: Life as a Thrifter

Hello, Friends! I'm so happy you're here today! Every Friday Bella Nest will be featuring bloggers from all over that use their creative talents to transform furniture, home accessories, clothes, or whatever it is they do best! Today I'm excited to introduce Holly from Life as a Thrifter.



Hello! My name is Holly Marsh, and I blog over at Life as a Thrifter! I'm super excited to be guest posting here today! My blog is all about repurposing thrifty finds, so when Holly asked me for a furniture post, I knew immediately what I wanted to share.

Here you see a BEFORE picture of our dining room. All of these chairs were collected at thrift stores for $5-$10 a piece. I loved them! For 2 whole years, I loved them. But, inevitably I needed a change (as with most things around my house) .



So, I decided I'd paint them . . .




and sand them . . .


. . . until they came out looking like this.





I'm pretty thrilled!

Thanks again, Holly for allowing me to share today!  
If you'd like to see more fun thrifty projects, be sure to check out Life as a Thrifter!

Happy hunting, everyone!
-Holly
