Puppy Power: Yard Sale Makeover

I found this gem at a yard sale for 25 cents. I would have looked right over it until Mini-me said, "awww, look at the cute puppies, Mommy!"

I felt a little sentimental because my family had a sweet cocker spaniel when I was growing up. However, this tacky piece of art from the Cherokee Indian Reservation was not coming home with me...until a light bulb came on in my head and I had an idea for a makeover.

I simply painted chalkboard paint over the cute but tacky little cocker spaniels, and I had a rustic, tree slice chalkboard. This was a super easy makeover.

I also found this awesome beverage cart at Goodwill for $3.99. Unfortunately, I have no before pictures. I fixed it right up with some duck egg blue chalk paint and dark wax.

Both are now for sale in my booth at Prattville Pickers.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have enjoyed my yard sale makeover!

  1. You dog hater! Hahaha! JUST KIDDING! I had to say it . . . I totally agree with your makeover choice and it turned out very cute! The dogs reminded me of something painted on a metal tray that used to hang in my great grandmother's house and no one wanted it when she went on to her great reward in the sky. If we only had chalk paint back then . . .
