So every Thursday, I plan to share my finds, what I do with them, and tips or tricks for you to use when you thrift. I wanted to start out with my recent finds that I decided to use around our little living space. Reclaiming and recycling objects is one way we can save money, save the dump centers, and add just a little pretties into our lives.
|Milk Glass vases and jars I found for a few dollars and a picture frame I found for $1. I replaced the picture with wrapping paper I loved, and turned it into a serving tray.|
|With a desperate need for cleaning, we got this chair for $15 and suitcase for $4- staple the under lining back into place and it's good as new|
|Cleaned with ammonia, a rag, and toothbrush, this chair is now happily serves our little girl, even though it was meant for me and daddy.|
|Using a cookie rack to separate the DVD player and the cable box allows the cable box to "breathe" and keep cool. The dresser was donated to us that we sanded, painted and changed the handles.|
|Pillow cases found at an Estate Sale, cleaned and ready to go (Jon isn't a fan of the feminine bedroom)|
|Sometimes, shopping at my mother-in-laws means I get finds like this amazing dresser|
We're currently working on our entire collection of vintage items which we'll debut here on "Thrifting Thursday". With this little peak inside our home, you can see how some items can be repurposed around the home. Stay tuned next week for a glimpse inside Stark Love's Vintage Event Design's inventory.
