I'm here today as a service to let you know, if you are not already aware, that today is National Thrift Store Day!
I'm assuming it's a "national" holiday in the United States, as they have days for everything from bubblegum and blue jeans to body paint and ugly trucks, however as I live awfully close (as the crow flies), and don't need an excuse to celebrate second hand goodies, I'm officially adopting this holiday.
Before I head off to immerse myself in an afternoon of non-stop thrifting, I thought I'd share some inspiration - perhaps to help narrow down your search while strolling the aisles of your local thrift store. I settled on the ideas below because they are realistic, achievable projects, that use easy to find thrift store items.
|Rustic painted salt and pepper mills (via)|
|Epoxy scares me but I still want to try this (via)|
|Wash vintage shirts in colour safe bleach first (via)|
|Absolutely adore these preppy stripes (via)|
|Spray paint and cluster thrifted frames (via)|
Unfortunately I'm limited to window shopping today, our backpacks are packed for our flight Tuesday morning and I can't get away storing any "projects". If you snag a great find or have a project in the works please share - I'd love to live vicariously!
