Happy Saturday! Time has flown by. I have been busy thrifting and decorating.
It’s time to show you all of my fabulous treasures and projects!
It is very cold in Ohio so we decided to do some crafts.
I am SO excited about my transformed clock! I loved it; however, it didn’t match well with our new paint and flooring.
Don’t be afraid to paint things you already have.
Now we will know what time it is as we run out the door each weekday.?
I wasn’t crazy about the white so I painted him a turquoise color. Now he adds a pop of color in our living room.
It was time to re-decorate the mantle. I wanted to stick with the winter white and add a little love for Valentine’s Day without using traditional reds and pinks.
I wanted to use some hydrangea flowers but I did NOT want to pay $24 for 3 stems.
I saw this garland at St. Vincent DePaul for $3…SOLD!
My theory is…even if I don’t end up using it, the price was still less than a cup of fancy coffee.
Here is what I used for the mantle…
- flowers from ugly garland (thrift store)
- glass candle holders with crystals (thrift store)
- chalkboard banner (target)
- slate heart tags (target dollar section)
- apothecary jars with silver fruit (thrift stores)
- sparkly birdcage ornament (I’m just not ready to part with it yet. lol)
Finally…last but certainly not least are these fabulous treasures!
They came from Bargains and Buyouts on the west side of Cincinnati.
They have very nice modern furniture at great prices…AND they are happy to bargain with you!
This cream colored ring chair is very shabby chic with tufted buttons and silver nailheads. We love it, and its $40 price tag!!
It retails for $200 online. My 11 year old calls it her “princess chair.”
We don’t care! It works perfectly for the girls to drop their backpacks and school papers when they walk in the door.
I scored these wire baskets at Target in the baby clearance section for $2.98 each.
You have to think outside the box when shopping. Check all of the end caps in all departments.
And here’s an added bonus…my daughter with her snow day crafts. ?
Stay warm and check back next week for more treasures!
