Hello! My name is Holly Marsh, and I blog at Life as a Thrifter
. I am thrilled
to be guest posting today! Although I used to teach kindergarten, I now stay at home with a busy toddler! Along the way, I developed an obsession for thrifting, and these days nap times are most often spent sanding or spray painting! Whether it’s a beat-up piece of furniture or a worn out pair of jeans, I have the greatest time producing something new out of something old … and blogging all about it!
I’ve compiled a few of my most favorite projects to share with you today. All of which are super cheap and ridiculously easy!
I found this old shutter at a thrift store for 2 bucks! Add a few “S” hooks and clothespins and it makes a grand way of keeping track of invitations and outgoing mail.
A quick spray paint job was all I needed to completely transform a collection of boring brass candleholders in to a bright and bold centerpiece!
Embroidery Hoop Monogram
This door display was made using a thrifted embroidery hoop, a large piece of burlap and fabric paint. Once you’ve painted your monogram on the burlap (I used a stencil to make things extremely easy), you simply put the burlap in your hoop. You could seriously do this in less than a nap time.
Be sure to click on each project link if you’d like to see more details. A very special thanks to Vanessa for allowing me to share with you today! I hope you’ll stop by Life as a Thrifter
and check out more!
Happy hunting, everyone!
