|$20 DIY Shelves I shared on Craft Baby for a contest. A few months ago I won a $25 giftcard for a DIY project.|
Today I have a fun link-up to share with everyone. About 60% of our home is thrifted so I thought it would be fun to start a little series called, Loving My Thrifted Home. This is where I will share DIY's, Up-Cycling projects, vintage pieces that we have thrifted, and all kinds of things we are now enjoying in our home thanks to thrifting. I love thrifting because it is such a wonderful way to make your home unique and one that truly reflects the people living inside.
Gradually, we have filled our home with lovely things that make our hearts happy over the last few years. When we first bought our home the house sat very empty. Like REALLY empty. We had an extremely tight budget so we started thrifting to decorate our home. This quickly turned into a love and I honestly now prefer thrifted & vintage items over new. However, I do
love mixing old & new together.
I didn't announce this link up until today, because I just decided to do it last night. HA! I had tossed the idea around in my head but last night I finally decided to do it.
I would love for you to link up projects that you have repurposed, redone, and DIY'd to make them your own. Also I would really enjoy checking out all kinds of lovely thrifted finds that you have found & shared on your blog or Facebook page. If you are interested in co-hosting this link up let me know, I would love to have you! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
For this weeks Loving My Thrifted Home Project
I want to share our Barn wood Shelves in our sitting room.
Back in December we made two shelves out of barn wood we had left over from another project. Johnny cut the wood in the length desired, we sanded them both down a little but not enough to take away character, and then cleaned them ALOT because they were really dirty. We found these brackets at Lowes for $5 each & flipped them upside down to be wide enough for our wide shelves. Target had a coat rack that I loved & bought then TJ Max had clearance frames & owls that I loved. The rest of the decor was thrifted & I made the wreath to brighten up the shelves. The whole project, including decor cost about $50. Not too bad friends.
|The rest of the room. We still have lots of work to do in here but everything good is worth waiting for. In time.Plus $ doesn't grow on trees & we won't go in debt for it.|
|We love our little reading room. It has been such a blessing to sit in here with friends. As a family we love to listen to music from the record player (thrifted) in the room, play guitars, and sing. Mostly, I love to read in here!|
I hope you will enjoy this series & would love for you to plan to link up on Fridays! Share home decor, furniture projects (little or big), or any lovely thrift store find! It doesn't have to be a recent post so feel free to link up one from a while back. Make sure to comment or email to let me know if you are interested in co-hosting Loving My Thrifted Home.
