#nationalthriftshopday

Today is national thrift shop day! And if you know us at all, you know about our love of thrift store shopping! So today we have some photos of the fun things we found at our favorite thrift shop this weekend. Even Noah participated :)

Our favorite part of shopping at the thrift store is that you can find some really awesome things for such a good price. We especially love when we have some fun vintage finds, like Noah's vest or his little sweatshirt. There are so many interesting things that you can find that have so much character.

I think one of the best finds of the weekend was definitely Skylar's shark sweater! Isn't it so cool? We are hoping to get a little more thrift shopping in today to celebrate :) How about you? xo, Britt

Seeing Potential

For some people it is really hard to imagine the potential in something. When I see something I can only see potential, it's how my brain works. I think of all of the different ways that I can make the object "so me." Which a lot of times includes gold spray paint! I have a problem ... don't judge.

But there are certain things that you want to look for when finding a not so pretty object and customizing it. You want the object to have good bones. If the structure isn't sturdy or you can't easily make it so, then you should look past it. I am notorious for picking random things off the side of the road. I vividly recall me, Skylar, and Brooklynn putting 6 mismatched chairs into my car in the middle of the night. But sadly most of the chairs were in such bad shape that it didn't make sense for me to use them. 

You also want to look at the shape and/or character of the object. I love unique pieces. For example, this super cute shaped planter that I found at an estate sale. I hated the color of it but I LOVED the shape. It was different than any that I had seen before. It was definitely a factor in why I decided to purchase it.

Thrifty: Lazy Susan Revamp

It's been quite a while since I posted about any of my thrift store finds. So I thought I'd share :) I picked this lazy susan up at one my typical thrift stores I go to a while ago. I had originally planned on using it on the dining room table, but I change the table runners so often that it just wast actually getting used. So I decided that the craft table was the perfect location.

My initial plan was for their to be nothing on the craft table, but let's face it. I am constantly working on something so there are always craft supplies out everywhere. So that's when I decided that the lazy susan could go in the middle and hold the things that I use most often.

When I bought it, the lazy susan was a dark brown wood, which did not go with the craft table table. So like basically everything else I own, I painted it gold!! I just used two coats of paint and it was ready to go.

So far I love the convenience of it. It holds my frequently used items and it looks cute. So it's perfect! Happy Wednesday lovelies! xo Britt

Thrifty: Pineapple Revamp

Ever since I started planning Noah's birthday party, I have taken a break from getting the office decorated. But i thought I'd share one of my absolute favorite thrift store finds.  

I actually found this a while back, but just hadn't done anything with it yet. So I decided it was time.

I got this fun little pinapple tray for $3 at the local thrift store. I knew as soon as I saw it that it would be perfect on my desk to hold little odds and ends.

I hope you love this thrifty DIY as much as  i do! xo Britt

Thrifty: Shoe Revamp

If you don't know about our love for thrift store shopping, I don't know where you've been. These shoes are another one of our thrifty finds. We found these at one of our favorite thrift store for $2. Like almost all of the things we get on our thrifty adventures, we like to clean them up and add our personality to them.

This project was literally as simple as adding two colors of paint to these tennis shoes. We chose two fun colors to put on the heel and toe of the shoes. This small pop of color adds so much!

And because they are so cute we had to have a little photo shoot at the park. :)
