Thrift Shop Flip - Oversized Bulletin Board

This post contains affiliate links.

Hey there, how was your weekend?

Mine went by way to fast, as usual, I hate that... I have a list of things a mile long that I want to work on over the weekend but before you know it, it's over and time to go back to work. Boo!

I did work on a couple of projects, one is a chair that I'm experimenting with a little bit. It had a broken leg when I found it next to a garbage can. I thought I'd try and build a new leg for it. I have peeled back the upholstery (original upholstery that is in near perfect condition too!) and cut a new leg and attached it. Right now it is glued and clamped. I'm excited to see how it will turn out!

The other project is an oversized bulletin board for my new office space I'm working on!

The 5 Basic Elements of Boho Style

This post contains affiliate links.

I love the bohemian home decor style that is becoming so popular, it just feels right to me. It combines vintage and new, different styles such as country and mid-century modern, different eras from early 1900's to 1960's and beyond, and colors and textures with reckless abandon!

It is impulsive, natural and unconstrained, uninhibited and shameless... and I love that!

The dictionary definition of bohemian is a person (often a writer or artist) who lives and acts free of regard for conventional rules and practices. And when we apply that to home decor... well, it's just a beautiful thing and perfect for someone like me who loves all different decor styles and likes to change things up almost daily!

With the bohemian style, you can go all out in a maximalist fashion with every wall covered with eclectic art and collectibles, rich, dark colors, textures and patterns.

Or you can go more minimalist and neutral with rich textures and statement pieces.

Really, anything goes! And as my blog tagline states... it's your home, don't be afraid to color outside the lines!

I'm sure you've seen some beautiful bohemian homes, one of my favorites is Justina Blakeney's home, find her blog here: The Jungalow. But like me, maybe you're having a hard time figuring out how to get that look at times... it seems like it should be easy right?... just throw a bunch of shit you love together and voila!! Um no... at least not for me! If only!!

To be honest, I still haven't nailed the exact look I'm after so to help (both you and me), I did a little observing and studying (Pinterest style 😁) and I have put together a little guide of five basic elements every boho home has in common... these things can be incorporated in great volumes or small doses, to help get the boho vibe!

I have a fun project to share today, I haven't done any thrift shop flip posts in awhile so I thought it was high time I got busy and created something!

I've had this gigantic metal spoon in the garage for a couple of years now so it was about time it got a makeover.

Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

Hello, hello, I have some treasures to share today for Treasure Trove Tuesday! I only had time this week for one thrift store trip so all of this was found at one place.

In case this is your first time joining us for TTT, this is where I share the treasures that I have found while shopping for vintage and antiques to stock my booth at the antique mall and my Etsy shops, Little Vintage Cottage and Little Boho Cottage. I share how much I paid for each item and my opinion of what the value is which just means how much I can resell it for!

Seventies Credenza Makeover

Well, I'm off to a good start at the antique mall this month... the hall tree I made over sold while I was working Saturday! You can see that makeover here: Hall Tree Makeover.

So that means I have room for another furniture piece in my booth and I just finished a new something so that was perfect timing!
