You know how I love a good thrift store transformation, right? I've done an entire 31 day series in addition to numerous makeovers of the thrifted goods I find (many copying catalog items, too). So you're probably not surprised that I'm drawn to a good makeover whenever I find one and I've been loving all the great inspiration I've been finding on Pinterest lately (I even created a board for all the thrift store transformations I pin) - wow, are there a lot of incredible things happening out there!
I didn't want to keep all the great ideas myself, so I thought I round up a few of the best of them to share with you guys. I specifically focused on projects that used items I see ALL the time at thrift stores, things like plates, mirrors, and ugly furniture (you can read more about what I always look for at thrift stores, plus shopping tips, here). And most are relatively easy to recreate using paint and basic diy skills. So no excuses - be inspired and then hit the stores!
Please follow the links provided to pin any of these individual projects from the original page (you can pin the graphic above to remember where all these great ideas are on AOC, though!).
