Before and After - Thrift Shop Flips

19 May
I have a few trash to treasure thrift shop flips to share today!

Thrift Shop Flips

This vintage clock got a much needed update with a coat of sunny yellow paint!

Here is a before shop (sorry it's so blurry!)

I can see this hanging in a retro kitchen or craft studio!

And remember these vintage jars?

They are now cute little canisters with chalkboard labels!

I married a vintage glass light shade and candle holder to form a cool fruit bowl!

An old, plain wooden rolling pin was transformed with some decorative painting!

It is now a "Bakery" recipe card holder. I'm really not sure what it was intended to be used for but I like this idea ;o)

 I found some vintage recipe cards that I thought went so well with it!

And this is a vintage trivet that has been reimagined into a cute butterfly wall hanging!

I just glued a piece of burlap over the ugly tile insert, stamped the butterfly onto the burlap, and made a couple of rolled fabric roses!

  6. What a pretty yellow! I've been painting up a storm in my kitchen too. I decided to switch from red to aqua accents and painted everything - it looks fabulous!!

    Great canisters too!
