Thrift Shop Project


ThriftShopProjects SQI love thrift shops. Heart Country Design style

Especially the thrift shops that benefit sheltered animals.

It’s a blast to spend an lazy afternoon strolling through the aisles and wondering what is it?  And, what can I make with it?

So I decided a fun way to share my love of thrift shops with you would be to start a monthly Thrift Shop Project series.  I will shop a local thrift shop and find something easy and creative to share.

Thrift Shop ProjectsHere is want I created with my latest thrift shop finds.  That would be the glass items in the photo, not the vintage tools.

But wouldn’t it be awesome to find those in a thrift shop?

Could happen…so we will keep looking, okay?

Thrift Shop Projects-2Anyway, back to those glass vases and I think drinking glasses.  Oh, and a canning jar.

I paid $1.50 for the five.  Thought they would make unique “frames.”

ThriftShopProjects 1 SQI cleaned them up and inserted some favorite black and white family pictures and display them on our mantel with some vintage tools.

Well that was easy!

Notice I didn’t use the wine glass.  I couldn’t easily find a photo that fit as well as…wine!

Gotta go find a piece of chocolate, so leave a comment below and let me know what you think of the Thrift Shop Project series so far.
