Today's project is a quick thrift store collection makeover. At the end of this post, please tell us about your thrift store collections. What's the first thing you look for when you enter a thrift shop?
Hannah wanted her new room to be filled with pictures of friends and family. For an instant collection of frames, we hit the Salvation Army.
We went on half off day so we were able to get various styles and sizes for $1 to $3 each.
We chose frames that had a unique shape, ignoring the color and finish.
I was able to find Krylon all surface spray paint in the colors of her new room.
We took one of the largest frames and turned it into a photo-tray for her perfume collection.
First, we sprayed it black and placed an enlarged black and white photo inside. Then placed in flat in the bookcase next to the frame collection to corral perfume bottles and colorful jewelry.
We are looking forward to adding to the collection as we come across great frames through our thrifing adventures to come.
What I love about thrifting is that it's a very economical, quick, one stop shop way to start a new eclectic collection. We were able to throw this display together in a day and now, we have something to collect and add-to for years.
Do you have a collection of thrift store treasures? What do you hunt for?
