Trashy to Classy Home Decor
Today I'm looking at my favorite thrifty trash to treasure decor makeovers. It's thrift store decor day and my always thrifty and oh so talented friends are along for the ride.
One of all time favorite makeovers are the horse trophies Debbie painted turquoise. I have a photo of them later in the post. And...there are 110 more thrifty projects with picture links at the very end. Inspiration!
Thrift Store Crafts
The faux succulent hanging display I made earlier this year is really unique and I still love it. Of course, you guys know I'm a big fan of succulents. I have a hard time keeping plants alive and I always buy faux.

You might be surprised.....I was....to know that I've been able to keep the red topped cactus alive I featured in my porch decor with all the thrifty pots.
The "First Aid" book was also a fun project. I hate to see old books go to the dump. Saving a few might help.
Trash To Treasure Decor
The painted tray from Maryann showcases one of my favorite color combinations. I like this paint idea. They must have made a million of these bamboo trays because they are everywhere. That's okay. I feel a project coming on.
Vintage anything speaks to me and this vintage vase wall hanging in white is a fav. I like how Pam used it as an organizer on her frig instead of hanging it on the wall.
Here are the horse trophies I mentioned earlier. Collections are fun but like Debbie mentions in her post it's more fun to give them a cohesive look. The turquoise spray paint color is soft yet flashy. Debbie has a thing for turquoise.
I have never seen any horse trophies at the thrift store but if I do, I know what to do with them.
This lazy susan was badly scarred and stained. Sarah sanded it completely and restained for this fresh look. A simple stencil around the inner edges really classes it up.
The bit of gold stripes Christy painted around her bowl makeover is a simple touch that makes a statement.
I've never seen an accent table with a table top shaped like this one from Kristin. The blue color is perfect.
The JTS and my Dad have both restrung wind chimes but I don't have the patience for it. Gail refurbished these and she has a great tutorial on the process.
