• Navy Blue Shop Class Desk. Makeover by Gypsy Magpie

    Navy Blue Shop Class Desk

    Sometimes the story behind a piece really inspires me. That’s what happened with this old desk. Believe it or not, this hefty fella was built by a shop class in Arizona! How cool is that? With dovetailed drawers and a solid wood top, the shop teacher knew his stuff. I love that this class of […]

  • Cute round painted pedestal table with papered drawers | Gypsy Magpie

    Casement White Pedestal Table

    Ok, y’all. I have the worst habit that I have to figure out how to break! I put a ton of work and time into a piece and then sell it before I remember to take photos! I’m thinking of you, gorgeous hand painted red piano. Ugh. What is wrong with me? Case in point, […]

  • The BEFORE of an antique piano makeover | Gypsy Magpie

    Antique Piano Project {Before}

    I spent this past Saturday working on an Kingsbury Cabinet Grand antique piano. A sweet friend of mine, who is battling cancer, called a while back and asked if I would be willing to make a dream come true for her. She wants to get her hand-me-down piano out of the garage and into her […]

    You know those moments when your gut says NO but you just don’t listen? Yep, that’s what happened when I first saw this tired 1980s hutch. By now you’d think I’d know to listen to myself, especially when my insides are screaming at me to run the other direction. Unfortunately, I always think I can […]

    Navy Blue Barstools

    When we first bought our house we were so excited to have a kitchen island. Coming from a home with a tiny kitchen that had a formica counter that periodically popped up to talk to me while I was cooking, our new granite island was heaven! I found a good deal on barstools and ordered […]

    Wythe Blue Dresser

    You know when you find a piece and think it’s perfect for your kid’s room and so you redo it only to realize it’s not going to work? Yeah, that happened to me with this darling Wythe Blue dresser. Sadness. My bestie called me a few months ago to tell me she had a dresser […]

  • A little navy blue paint and an old map perk up a boring oak file cabinet | Gypsy Magpie

    Map File Cabinet

    When I was getting ready for Midway Market, I realized I needed a few more pieces to fill out my booth so I headed down to the basement to pick through the hoard. I found a little oak file cabinet with great hardware and a torn map, which gave me an idea. *This post contains […]
