Goodwill Party

goodwill_party Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick is hosting a party for us to show off our thrift store finds. Right up my alley! But since I do that every week, I thought I would just highlight some of the things I’ve done with my thrifty purchases. I will freely admit that many of my purchases are still sitting in bags or closets, waiting for me to transform them and put them to use.

I will get around to it, eventually. In the meantime, let’s look at some of the things I have done.

My super awesome garage sale shutters, $1 for the pair!shutters

Became “art” over my bathtub (along with thrift store frames and scraps from a clearance shower curtain-turned window treatment).IMG_2342

These thrift store framesframes

became a gallery of my children’s artwork.gallery

An ironstone plate from Goodwill became a menu board.menu

Oh, I love the hamper makeover! Do you still use it as a hamper, or do you use it for other storage? :)

Hi Holly,
You got some fantastic stuff there. I'm especially impressed by all the projects you've finished. I need to take some of your motivation and bottle it. ;)

I have begun to "Treasure Hunt" again, because you have inspired me. I've found a few things, but nothing the likes of what you've found. Great job!
