Sometimes creating one-of-a-kind looks for your home is as simple as taking a trip to the thrift store. It’s good to keep your mind open to the possibilities that could be when looking through old, worn out items. A lot of what is featured here in this post are old things you never would have thought to buy otherwise.
I’ve gathered these eight projects to inspire you not only to think of the idea to repurpose but also to save money. Creating something unique for your home is not only a lot more fun but adds a little bit of personal touch to it as well.
1. Thrift Store Farmhouse Bowl via Twelve and Main
Can you believe this was once an old wooden bowl? A little spray paint and DIY magic went a long way!
2. Trash To Treasure DIY Coffee Bar Sign via Little House of Our
Buying signs like these can really rack up in price pretty easily, but after a little work, you have an inexpensive sign worthy of the big bucks.
3. Thrift Store Rooster Makeover via Our Southern Home SC
I’ve seen those colorful roosters in the thrift store before and after reading this post, I’m kicking myself in the butt! Look at how great these look! You never would have known they were once a throwaway knick knack.
4. Spray Paint Thrift Store Finds via Sincerely Sara D.
Repurposing old items doesn’t stop at bowls and figurines. You can repurpose any old kitchenware item with a little spray paint. This, of course, will make it for decor only, but why would you want to cook in something so pretty?
5. Thrift Store Pitcher Makeover via The Painted Hinge
Looking for the perfect pitcher to add to your home? Thrift shopping is perfect. Spray paint and done!
6. DIY Candle Holders via The Weathered Fox
These beautiful candle sticks can be created in only 5 minutes! How awesome is that? Not only is is cheap, but it’s fast!
7. Bathroom Light Fixture Makeover via The Sawdust Sisters.
This would have to be one of my favorites. It’s hard to believe that they were once ugly, old shades!
8. DIY Rope and Zinc Finished Lamps via Rustique Restoration.
This project is perfect for when you really don’t want to spend $90 or more on those trendy lamps you see everywhere. When in doubt, DIY!
