It might be my Spring Fever flaring up, but giving thrift store finds a fresh, new life has been at the forefront of my mind lately. A fresh coat of paint can give any item a new life. A dated candlestick or forgotten picture frame will flip the creative switch in my brain and I go into total DIY mode. Luckily for me, this seems to be contagious. Between my thrift store finds and my mom’s painting, I could fully furnish a little house…..if only I had an apartment.
Recently, I gave myself the challenge of going to a few second-hand stores on a budget of $20. I am surprised to say that I did not go over my budget. Here is what I came home with:
There wasn’t much fixing, painting, updating needed for these pieces. I painted the candlestick white so it would fit in well with other decor items that I have. The rest of these items just needed a little elbow grease to get the sticky price tags off.
My only concerns with having Spring Fever/DIY Fever is that I’m afraid I will have too much furniture and decor when I find an apartment of my own.
