What does that mean?
Twenty-two DIY bloggers got together to shop for projects at local thrift shops that sponsor a local animal shelter or…
they are sharing their furry animal stories or…
they are simply helping to bring awareness to the needs of sheltered animals.
and this is the shelf that I found at our local thrift shop that sponsors our local humane society.
I related to it on a physical level!
More on that in a bit!
I had the wonderful opportunity to join 21 other DIY bloggers for the Thrift Benefit this year. Scroll down to enjoy and share all the projects and stories.
Above is the list of animal-loving bloggers! I have the joy of living in Homer and Bella’s home. You can read more about my design assistants here.
Well, I recently got braces. One tooth was starting to stick out more than the others.
Notice the one large peg surrounded by random placement of smaller pegs…
just like my tooth!
Now the shelf is buck-toothed!
Wish this would work on my teeth! So much faster than braces!
It’s time to paint! So I did a painting demo at the Humane Society Resale Store.
Yep! That’s me with my braces!
I had the pleasure of joining Karen from Dogs Don’t Eat Pizza, Laura with Lovely Wren, and Jessica at Designers Sweet Spot this morning to do a fun video. You can click on the image above or here to view and hear “in person” our stories, animals, and projects.
The shelf finished
Here’s the $4 shelf all dressed for Christmas. I painted it a light turquoise blue. Then used petroleum jelly on the places that I wanted the turquoise to show. The second coat was Christmasy red. A very light sanding to let the turquoise peek through and I was done!
Thank you to all the locals that attended the painting demo. I enjoyed the interaction and activities. I will be re~donating all the items painted during the demos to the Humane Society Resale Store.
Let’s do it again!
Here’s a link to the Thrift Benefit recap last year!
