So, you see all the makeovers all over blog land, and you’ve been inspired 100’s of times.
You’ve been so inspired that you’ve even visited the thrift store after work, or on the weekend to find that perfect chair or table that needs just a couple coats of paint so you can say…,
“LOOK! I DID A MAKEOVER!”
That’s fantastic. I love that you are inspired.
However, seeing all of these makeovers can be over whelming, too.
I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be…
I’m so excited to be part of this wonderful group of bloggers where we all venture out to the thrift store and find something to make over. It doesn’t get any better than, that.
So, this is what I found…
The tea kettle was first, and it was so beautiful. There was no way I could pass it up. It’s my second one this year, so maybe a silver tea kettle collection will develop.
For now…I just needed to figure out how to make this baby fit into our “Thrift Store Decor Challenge”.
I put my thrift store goggles on, and I searched further.
I began to think very clear and said to myself,
“What’s a tea pot with out tea cups?”
(yes this photo was taken on our drive way)
I’m not sure about you, but at our thrift stores we have a gazillion tea cups.
I ended up finding these 2 with matching saucers for .99 each. What a bargain. I love the orange.
Now I had to get them home, and figure out how to make them over.
Lucky for me, while at the grocery store, I came across these beautiful pink roses for $9.99. I never see pink roses, so this was meant to be.
I began to think how beautiful the roses would look resting in the tea set. How elegant, dainty, and GORGEOUS. It would all come together perfectly against my Black Stereo Console in our foyer.
Then there’s the Thrift Store Silver Platter Wall behind it…a match made in heaven.
So, remember next time you’re at the thrift store…just look for something cool to to put flowers in.
No paint required. Makeover complete.
