I shop at thrift stores a LOT, but have no fear I am often buying the ugliest and dirtiest stuff in the store. I am not buying up all the next to new decor that could still be found in stores. These are two of the most unusual "before" items, I have never seen another one like either of these. White paint came to the rescue to make them pretty! The floral topiary is spray painted and glazed and the lemons were painted using homemade "chalk" paint and sanded so some of the yellow and brown showed through.
I love the power of white paint, here are a few more transformations!
