Likely the most thrilling part of thrift shopping is being inspired to totally transform a piece into something different and better.I adore a great repurposed project because when it comes to stretching those creative muscles and making something different, unexpected, and unique, a repurposed project just can’t be beat!So when I found a set of wooden napkin rings at the thrift store, I knew a new repurposed project was happening soon.
Two years later, and I'm still working my way through a stack of ceramic tiles I found in our garden shed, left behind by the previous owners. After a few longer projects, I decided it was time for a quick one!
This project was nothing but fun!For over a year I've wanted to DIY my own unique tea chest, and when I found a second wine box at my favorite thrift store, it was game on!
A few months ago I found a cute ceramic and iron trivet at my favorite thrift store. I didn't know right away how I'd use it, but it fit my list of "great find criteria", so it came home with me for just $4. A few weeks ago I finally decided what to do with it!
One of my thrift shopping ninja hacks is to shop for pieces and parts. I love putting the unexpected together to come up with something new. So when I landed a couple of separate pieces on one of my latest jaunts, that's exactly what I did with them.
I really love terra cotta pots! My only complaint with them though is that they're plain and boring.So I look at them as possibilities instead. The ways you can dress them up are nearly limitless.
Furniture flips have intrigued me for a long time. I just love how a plain and boring piece can be transformed into something simply stunning with a little paint and creativity. But when I heard that even kids could turn basic pieces into works of art, I had to see this for myself!
I love a great thrift store haul!It's a rare visit when I walk out empty handed. Nearly every single time I shop, I find something that can be upcycled or repurposed (my personal favorite).By the way: Do you know the difference between upcycling and repurposing?Let me show you how I repurposed a boring metal magazine basket into a fun and functional new item.
