Here are 3 of my favorite thrift store finds from 2013. I can't link back to blog posts because I never blogged specifically about them to begin with, oops! I think I'll be back with this kind of post a few more times this month as I play catch up!
I found this old window screen at a Habitat Resale store and had every intention of selling it and then.....yeah I kept it. I printed a bird on limb image and then moved it around under the old screen and I outlined the birds with chalk. I free handed the limbs to connect them and free handed the welcome part. I painted over the chalk lines with regular craft paint. It was easy and it has been on my porch ever since.
When I saw the bird vase at a thrift store, I was first drawn to the color and then for just a few bucks I figured it was chipped like most things at the thrift store. Well it looked good so in my cart it went. I don't know is this is old or not, but I love it so I don't really care.
Here is where it lives in my house, nestled in some other thrift store goodies.
I was doing a quick walk through of a thrift store that I normally don't buy much at, but that day I had to go back and get a cart! One of my great finds that day was the cake stand, a keeper for sure! I've not seen another one like it. It was perfect for Christmas decorating and now it highlights some of my old hardware, I think I need more glass door knobs, don't we all?
Thanks for stopping by. Anyone else have the thrift store bug as big as me?
