Best part, I bought it for only $2! After purchasing the board, fabric, and tacks, I spent total about $8. Not bad at all for a completely custom bulletin board!

How to Make Your Thrift Store Finds Match

Paint is your best friend when it comes to making your thrift store finds match. If you are in the market for something in particular like office organizers or kitchen décor, there will pretty much always be a good selection at a thrift store but chances are they aren’t going to match. A very easy solution is to paint! Let’s use the example of these boring old vases.

When you walk into our local Salvation Army thrift store the first thing you are sure to spot are vases, vases, and more vases! There is literally an entire row dedicated to glass vases and table settings. Sometimes, the selection even leeks over into a second row! My guess is that this is not unique to our particular local thrift store.

I have been to a “few” thrift stores in my day and it is pretty much a 100% guarantee that you will be able to find a nice selection of vases. You can also find them at the dollar store but at a thrift store you will have a lot more of a selection when it comes to the style.
