This is the most fun I have had with the most amazing people in a really long time. Not only do we get closer as blog friends everyday but we rock the Thrift Store Swap. Lyn @ Mid Michigan Mom came up with this unique idea !! And so far 10 of us have joined in !! What we do is each person goes to a thrift store and gets two items under $10 to send to another person for them to recreate and do a DIY project. 1/2 the fun is that that you have no idea what your getting it’s so neat !!! I sent my two items to Betsy @ Happily ever After, Etc. & I got mine from Lisa @ Five Kids A Dog & A Blog.
I feel so lucky to be apart of this !!! & have been looking forward to it from day 1 !
What thrift items have ya’ll found and re-did?? Show me I love seeing them all !!
YAY !!!! Look what I did below.
This is the 1st item I did !! OMG it turned out so good !! As you can see below I provided before pic, during the process pic and the final product. I have it sitting on the kitchen counter and change out the chalk message and cards from time to time. I painted it with a black chalk board spray paint and painted a wooden “C” silver. I took little craft clothes pins to hold the cards. It was so easy and it’s really neat ! It can even be used to write reminders on !! What do you think ?? Did I do good? What would you have done ?
See !!! I love it it’s something fun and different and was so cheap to create !!
Next up project #2. This one had me a little more stumped on what I should do. I had thought about making some type of jewelry holder but I did that recently with a tree branch. So I decided to make a cute item for my daughters room. I used white paint, hot glue, and cute fabric flowers. She was so excited !! I had a few more thought but what I did seem to please me. Let me know what you would have done with this item please.
The final turned out really good on this one to ! I just set it on top of her TV and I have had quite a few comments on it already !!
This Thrift store swap was so fun I’m already excited for the next one !! I hope you take time to visit them all and see what we all came up with.
Thanks so much for stopping by this project is extra special.
