100 Best Thrifty Decor Makeovers 2023

The Thrift Store Decor Team is sharing our best thrifty decor makeovers of the year today. We added new team members this year and that means all kinds of new ideas. This year’s projects are the best ever. I picked my favorites from everyone and one of my projects to share also. Enjoy the show…..

How To Create Unique Garden Decor Using Vintage Metal Flowers
Create Unique Garden Decor Using Vintage Metal Flowers -Best Thrifty Decor Makeovers 2021

The first project is mine. These two pieces were meant for each other. I bought the metal flower wall decor when we lived in Florida. It moved back to Tennessee with us and I displayed it around the house in various places. After a while, I took it to my booth to sale and it was there forever! I finally brought it home. I guess it was meant to be because it matched up perfectly to an antique wood piece I had in the shop. See the complete project here…..How To Create Unique Garden Decor Using Vintage Metal Flowers


best thrift store makeovers

I love this repurposed wooden calendar, especially the color. And that crystal knob so pretty. See this project at Shop at Blu.

upcycled bird bath

I want this! Maybe my friend Pam will send it to me. Again, I love the color. The red is the perfect color red too. Pam put this birdbath together using several thrifty glass pieces. See the project at House of Hawthornes.

chalkboard project My Repurposed Life

I’ve recycled a lot of desk drawers but never turned one into a chalkboard. Great idea! See this project at My Repurposed Life.

upcycled magazine rack turned flower planter

That magazine rack is so pretty and it makes the perfect flower planter. I’m going to be on the lookout for one of those. I bet it would be pretty showcasing some red poinsettias. See the project at Sadie Seasongoods.

repurposed tray

Talk about a total makeover. Paint and peel and stick paper did the trick on this repurposed tray. See the project at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia.

faux birch candles

Designer looking project from Maryann. These Dollar Tree candles never looked better. She wrapped Birch looking scrapbook paper around the candles. So Pretty. See the project at Domestically Speaking.


outdoor coffee table makeover

You would not believe what Christy went through to update this outdoor coffee table. The process looks exhausting but the results are worth it. See the project at Our Southern Home.

framed stenciled art - Best Thrifty Decor Makeovers 2021

How about framing stenciled art? The large quilting hoop made a great frame for the stenciled fabric. See the project at Organized Clutter.

chippy paint makeover

Furniture makeovers are my thing and chippy painted furniture is one of my favorite looks. See this makeover at Reinvented Delaware.

  1. Your metal flower art is adorable! And yes, it belongs to you and your home! Thanks for choosing our flip stool makeover! I kept it in my home instead of taking it to my booth! Yay for keeping some of our pieces!

  2. Kathy,
    Isn’t it so disappointing when something you love doesn’t sell in your space? I just can’t figure out people! hahah rant over.
    You chose my desk drawer chalkboard. I get to see it in use often as it is in my cousin’s The Lodge at Douglas Lake (cabin). Since I’ve been going about once a month, it’s fun to see the messages other people have left on the sweet little drawer chalkboard. Side note– the drawer was from THEIR desk.
    ps love your cute little pinterest image. 🙂
