How about creating unique home decor and saving money at the same time? That’s a win-win in my book, and that’s the focus of the Thrift Store Decor Team. We have been super busy this year, and you can find more than 100 of our best updated and repurposed thrift store finds here.
Wicker Wall Succulent Planter
This thrift store basket was a mess, but Sarah spruced it up with metallic paints and then added all those faux succulents. This plant filled basket of looks so much better than the original.
DIY Plaster Candle Holders
Here’s a DIY idea to transform a candle holder with a homemade faux plaster recipe. It’s a fun project that anyone can try at home.
I inherited this bird bath from my sweet neighbor. I wanted to do something different with it, and succulents were the answer. The birdbath sits below our den window, and I can see it every day.
This is actually two projects in one. The wood tray just needed a good cleaning. The outdated crock with the apple design got a paint job and a new rub on design to bring it up to date.
Penny Covered Bowling Ball
Pam bought this bowling ball, bag, and a pair of old used bowling shoes at a church garage sale for just $1.00. The bowling ball by itself was worth $1.00. The new look with the shiny pennies is awesome.
Cork Covered Vase And Neutral Decor
Make these cork-covered vases inspired by a trend report I read in Food Network Magazine. The article was about cork being the new MVP of kitchen materials and featured cork trivets and a cork teapot.
Upcycled Jewelry Art
This is the perfect project for the vintage lover who enjoys puzzles. And if you love mementos and reminders of the past, this project is for you. Grab your old jewelry, buttons and glue.

Upcycled Magazine Rack
Old wood magazine racks can be customized in any color or style that makes you happy and matches your home decor. Gail did a great job on this one. You can never go wrong with white paint and a chalk couture transfer.
DIY Bird Feeder
Make a unique bird feeder using vintage teacups and an iron candle holder. This project was a lot of fun. The hanger is from Dollar Tree.
