I just love garage sales. What other people see as junk I see a treasure.
Why buy a new lamp when you can make your own one-of-a-kind design. Lamps can cost an arm and a leg (you know what I mean). Lampshades alone are $20 plus, and finials can cost even more than the lamp. So why not make your own? It’s super-fast and only takes a few supplies and a little creativity. Check out these thrift store finds I transformed for under $20 …
I had so many earrings I never wore because they were just thrown in a drawer and I could never find the matching earring. I decided to make this display out of an old picture frame so I could see all my jewelry. Plus, it looks really nice on my wall, not to mention it’s so much faster getting dressed in the morning. And best of all it’s super easy to make! See how I made it here
One of my favorite things to do is go to thrift stores, goodwill and garage sales to find cheap furniture. I am always amazed at what people throw away. I wish I could find the person that donated this little table so I could show them what I did to it.
I hope this inspires you to go thrift store shopping. You will be shocked at what you will find.
