Ten on the 10th....Thrift Shop Challenge

Here are some great deals I have found at our local "Thrifty Shopper".  

As I stroll though the store, my "wheels are always turning",  thinking "what can I do with this?" or ""what can I turn that into?"

I bought this $5 stool and thought " I can decoupage this with all the shopping bags I have been saving for years and prove to my husband there was a reason I was saving them!"


So, I cut off the store logos.....


...and decoupaged them on the top:


It was an inexpensive project - IF - you don't count everything I purchased in the shopping bags!

*********************************************



I also found this little $7 table at the same store:


And AGAIN, I could prove to my husband that there was a really good reason why I had been collecting yardsticks:


and with a bit of spray paint and a little measuring and cutting, I attached them on the top of the table:


Again, so smug with the satisfaction that I could prove why I "needed" to be saving them for a few years!!


***********************

How could I ever resist buying a  little $.69 cent coffee pot?


A little bit of paint turned it into a great vase:


I need to remind hubby that he needs to fill this with daisies!!

*********************************

These little glass globes are only $.79 at our thrift shop.  I ran it thru the dishwasher and painted it with some enamel paints - perfect to hold a tea light or a few fresh flowers!


A perfect little hostess gift!

  1. Patti, I love all of your projects! They are so creative and so cute! What great ideas and all so inexpensive...they make great gifts also. I think it is crazy that we have to explain to our husbands why we hold on to things when they never give us a reason for having 20,000 screws in 40 containers! ;-) Have a great one! Hugs!
