Thrift Store Shelf {home decor}

By | February 27, 2013

Hello everyone!  If you are new here I’d love for you to join me and never miss a frugal craft project or a craft room idea!

I came up with a few creative ways to turn my garage sale finds into something nice I can hang on my wall.  I love teapots and just happen to find a few at the local thrift store $2.50.  I found the shelf at a garage store and spray painted it white.  ( a can of spray paint does wonders!)    I found the pine cones for $.25 cents and the star at a local discount store.  I covered the books with scrapbook paper to match the decor and this is how it all came together!

    Your thrift finds are wonderful! Love the teapots and how you pulled everything together – I am delighted that you shared with Home and Garden Thursday,

      Thank you Kathy! I found each item at different thrift stores and garage sales before I was able to pull it all together!!

    Your little shelf is so cute and I like the teapots you have found. It is fun to begin a collection and see how it grows. I kept seeing clock faces on blogs and pinterest and began collecting. It didn’t take long to have a decent set of clock faces for vignettes.

    Love the white teapots. Wrapping the books in paper was a great way to make them fit into the vignette.

    Hi Marti!
    What a wonderful arrangement and what a great bargain. I love thrifting…and, rarely pay full price for any of my décor.
    Thank you for sharing.
