DIY Furniture Makeover

Transforming an Old Table Bought Off Facebook



Transforming old furniture into new is one of my favorite hobbies. I have a home full of old furniture, which I've revamped to look new again. One of the reasons I love refinishing Furniture is because, I love unique, solid wood pieces, with character.

I am not a big fan of new furniture because most furniture today is not even made of real wood... It's made of particle board covered in a thin film that has a wood-like print on it or thin sheets of wood veneer... If you want furniture made out of solid wood, plan on spending big money!

When I'm looking for "new" pieces to add to my home, the first things I look at are; is it real wood, can it be salvaged, and how cheap can I get it? Okay.., do I really need it? Is in there too somewhere...

This table, however, was not for me. It was for my mom. She was looking to get a new coffee table for her house that she had just bought; the brand new table she purchased right before buying this house had already started peeling... We had talked about her desire to get a new table, she even sent me a screenshot of the table she was interested in getting.

About a week or so later I stumbled across this Beauty on a Facebook yard sale group! So not only did I save her a bunch of money, she gets a "new" table with a cute backstory that was refinished with love!

So how much did this project cost? Well, if you had to buy all the supplies for this project it would cost around $96.27. I, however, had everything on hand except for the clear polyurethane, because I had run out on a previous project. So my total investment was less than $20, that sure sounds like a Krazy deal to me!


To see the table transformation from old to new be sure to watch the video below.


Here are the products used in this project:


So, what do you prefer? New or slightly used and just needs a little TLC?

My AncestryDNA Journey Review

My Ancestry DNA Journey Review
This post contains paid affiliate links, please read our Advertising DisclosureStatement.

So, I’ve been wanting to do the whole “what am I made of” DNA test for a while now. Like many families, there have been so many stories told and assumptions made as to our family heritage, that the opportunity to affordably solve these mysteries was just too enticing for me!

In 2017 my mother ordered her kit on a discounted price. After her results came in and we were going over all the information provided, we couldn’t help but notice that something was missing… You see my mother’s side of the family has always claimed to have a connection to several Native American tribes on both her mother and father’s side. These family stories and claims have been passed down through generations. However, upon reading her results they were not there! This was not a big surprise to me at all because I had suspected a different ethnic background all together. Aside from the fact that my mother and I have zero physical traits that you would commonly see in someone with native American heritage; in my own research on Ancestry.com I was never able to find any supporting information that would link our family to any Native American tribes. However, I was able to link some of our family all the way back to pre Christian Rome, which was never one of the origins mentioned in our family history.

Well her DNA results proved my research and assumptions correct! A smidge of Italian, YES! Native American? A big whopping NO at 0%... Her results intrigued me even more and now I really wanted to know what else could possibly be running through these veins? What other mysteries could be uncovered in my own DNA?  I just had to get one! So, I patiently waited for the kits to go on sale again, because of course I’m always looking for a good sale and Krazy Deals!! Sure enough Ancestry had a 40% off sale right around Christmas time and I was able to get my kit for only $59.00! So, I finally ordered one!!



My kit arrived about a week or so later. I’m honestly not sure exactly how long it took for the order to be delivered because I was sick when it arrived and didn’t take note of its arrival date… Speaking of being sick, I had gotten Strep Throat before the kit arrived so I wanted to wait till I was all better and done with my round of antibiotics before providing my saliva sample. Would that have affected my DNA sample? Well, according to my research, it is advised to wait until after you’ve completed your antibiotics and are fully recovered.





So, included in my AncestryDNA kit was a welcome/ Instruction pamphlet, 1 collection bag, 1 collection tube with accompanying cap full of stabilizing fluid and 1 prepaid mailing box. The instructions were very simple, straight forward and easy to follow. I then logged into my ancestry account to activate my test which was also a pretty straight forward process. I liked that I was able to opt-in or out of sharing options throughout the activation process and if I changed my mind about how I wanted my DNA information shared, I could go into my settings and change them accordingly at a later date. Go to AncestryDNA to learn more about their Privacy StatementAfter activating my kit online and waiting at least a half hour after drinking anything per the instructions (of course it was more like 45mins to an hour), I filled my collection tube up to the squiggly black line with my saliva, removed the funnel top and replaced it with the accompanying cap and tightened until the blue stabilizing fluid was released. I then shook the collection tube per the instructions to mix the stabilizing fluid with my saliva sample. I then placed the tube in the collection bag and sealed it. Then I placed it all in the prepaid mailing box that was included in the kit and sealed it. Finally I took the box to the post office to mail it back to Ancestry.

Now the waiting begins! According to the pamphlet, it takes 6-8 weeks from the time they receive your sample to complete your DNA test. I mailed my sample on 1/8/2018. I got an email confirmation that the lab received my AncestryDNA sample on 1/11/2018 and I received my email notification that my AncestryDNA results were ready on 2/22/2018. Which if my calculations are correct that is exactly 6 weeks to the day! Color me impressed!!



AncestryDNA Sample Received Email and AncestryDNA Results Ready Email



The DNA Results Summary is broken up into 3 sections; DNA Story, DNA Matches, and DNA Circles. 


AncestryDNA Results Summary

The DNA Story shows you a pie chart with an ethnicity estimate, according to Ancestry.com, “your ethnicity estimate includes regions based on two different scientific processes: the AncestryDNA reference panel and Genetic Communities™.You may also see "trace regions" in your ethnicity estimate, this amount of matching DNA is often 1% or less. You can also view a map of where your ancestors lived, read about each ethnicity match and country and see your ancestor’s migration. In the DNA Matches section, AncestryDNA has compared your DNA to the DNA of every other person in their database to determine who you might be related to; they even show you how you’re related. Then there is the DNA Circles, according to Ancestry.com the, “DNA Circle is a group of individuals who all have the same ancestor in their family trees and where each member shares DNA with at least one other individual in the circle.” Each section has a help and info section offering articles and videos to help you better understand your results.

So, my results? Well, I’m 100% European..lol! Pretty much what I have been told growing up was confirmed, minus the Native American of course, a few new origins that were not expected but interesting none the less and a lifelong question finally answered!! I am 100% satisfied with my results and experience with AncestryDNA and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone interested in finding out what they are made of!! I have been a member of Ancestry.com since 2010 and am looking forward to continuing to grow my family tree with all my new DNA matches.
