Do you love a good “find”? Do you like the thrill of the hunt as you did through piles of discarded items for that one treasure?
If you are a thrifter than you totally get what I mean. That “ah ha!” moment when you discover a diamond on the rough under an old afghan, 3 discarded Christmas wreaths and endless pieces of yellowed tupperware on the shelves of the Goodwill.
Or when browsing the aisles of your favorite thrift fair or market, you find that Olive Bucket you’ve been dying to own and refused to pay $150 for at Pottery Barn!
It’s such a great feeling.
I have rounded up an amazing list of projects and posts to inspire the “thrifting diva” in you! There are so many fabulous ideas for repurposing, upcycling and rehabbing thrift finds!
Projects like these vintage lace tins from The Graphics Fairy:
or this awesome post on ways to use old toolboxes from Funk Junk Interiors:
Be sure to visit my Thrifting Divas board at Hometalk for even more fabulous ideas!
