Happy May Day! Spring is in full bloom and whether you’re decorating with faux flowers or fresh ones, May Day has always been a day to show off some floral decor. I found a long wall basket at Goodwill recently and even though it was black and not at all spring like, I knew all it needed was a couple of coats of paint and some pretty flowers to have a perfect May Day Flower Basket.

Coastal Vanity Box ~ Thrift Store Find Makeover. I’ve been lucky lately to have found some thrift store items that are just right for makeovers. I wanted to add a little more coastal decor to our guest bath and I was looking for a small box that could be used as a vanity box with a few items that our guests might need. I found a box that was just the right size. It just needed a makeover to fit in with the decor.
While I’m not a watch wearer, Gloria absolutely loves them. She has quite a few and she loves coordinating them with her outfits. She has a large watch display box, but it’s rapidly filling up. When I spotted a smaller one at Goodwill recently, I knew I could give it a makeover and have it blend in perfectly with her jewelry displays. What started off as a plain brown watch box now has a completely different look. Have a look at the thrift store watch box makeover from drab to fab!
I bought an old recipe card stand at Goodwill a few months ago. It needed a makeover, but it’s just the kind of project I like! I changed it from drab and outdated to a piece that fits in with my coastal kitchen decor. I only paid a couple of dollars for it and I had all of the supplies on hand to give it a much needed new look. It’s another example of how to take a thrift store find and give it new life by doing a simple Recipe Card Stand Makeover.
I’ve got another thrift store find makeover to share with you. I know that we all access recipes on line, but I still love having printed recipes. I’ve got lots of recipes printed out and they’ve been crammed into one of my kitchen drawers. I’ve been on the lookout for a box that would be the right size. I found one recently at Goodwill that was just right, plus, it already had a coastal look to it, but it needed a makeover. Now, it looks great in my kitchen. [Read more…]
