My sister and I braved the cold snap this past Saturday to do a little thrifting. I came home with a fun pile of goodies to share with you today …
Some of the items will be left ‘as is’ such as the glass cloches, the vintage pudding mold and the cement garden bird.
Some of the items have a bit more work to be done on them, such as the suitcases. I’ll be devoting a full post to the aqua suitcase with the bad stencil job later.
But a few of the items have already received their makeovers starting with this tray.
This one really didn’t need a makeover, but I wanted to tweak just a couple of details. I painted the wooden handle thingie in the middle black instead of red, and then I added a transfer from re.design with prima’s Everyday Farmhouse collection.
Next up was this cute little box.
Again, it didn’t need a lot of work, but I freshened it up with a coat of Dixie Belle’s Drop Cloth and then added a transfer from the Classic Vintage Labels.
It’s amazing what the addition of a simple transfer can do for something.
The little metal watering can also benefited from the addition of a Classic Vintage Label.
Finally, did you notice the set of stacking boxes?
Noah’s Ark on one side …
Halloween on the other …
These are classic 80’s country style, don’t you agree?
I gave them a little update with some fresh paint and more transfers.
The boxes are all painted in Dixie Belle paint from top to bottom, Drop Cloth, French Linen and Midnight Sky.
The top two boxes have Classic Vintage Label transfers on them, and the bottom black box has part of the Somewhere in France transfer on it.
As always, thanks to Dixie Belle Paint Co and re.design with prima for providing the products I used to give all of these thrifty finds their makeovers.
I’ll be sharing more fun vintage makeovers this week, so be sure to stay tuned!
