Upcycle Before & After

I got this jar set for $0.50 at a yard sale...
BEFORE
AFTER

I painted the tray white and the lids red with black polka dots. Then glued black ribbon around the jars and filled them with her hairbands and clips. Before, they were just dumped in one of the bathroom drawers!
Even though my little girl shares a room with Daddy's office, I WILL give her a ladybug room after our next move.

Great little makeover of the jars and shelf. Also, good makeover of the chair. I grew up being a navy brat so know what great garage sales there can be on base... people just don't want to move some of their larger pieces of furniture or they don't have the space in the truck to take it witht them so it is left out for whoever comes by to claim it.

Have a great week . . . w

I am a thrift store junkie and I love seeing all the things you find turn into beautiful things for your home. Thanks for the great ideas!

Also, I recently found this blog that did a meme of Thriftstore Thursday. She just closed down and I'm sure her readers would love to keep joining in the fun. Maybe she would like you to take it on (if you want to?) Just an idea, here is the link :)
