Thrifting and friends = great times!!

OMG I had the best time thrifting with the was awesome spending the day with them.

We hit 3 huge thrift stores, HUGE......and I mean huge. Oh did I tell you they were huge.... Yes huge!!!!

If your ever in Oxnard, CA you have to hit these up, have plenty of time as you'll be here for a while.

It was a blast checking out everyone's thrifted finds.

Today I found, red cowboy boots, a cute shower curtain that will be upcycled to go on my bed. Three frames a lamp and tea server. I'll be altering each and making them my own soon, so check back often to see what I'm up to!

The post before this one has one frame that I found and couldn't wait to alter, it was altered with-in hours of being purchased.

My altered frame!

The girls and I are planning a day trip soon, a whole day of thrifting with good friends, oh I am so looking forward to it!!

~Have a fantastic day!!!

A thrifted treasure makeover!!!

I found the beautiful frame today and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!!

Look at the detail!!!

Here's the full version....... Only $4.99 great thrifted day, I'll show you all the rest of my goodies soon!

I had this cute lil birds nest and burlap the perfect items to give this a make over. I left the frame painted the way it was because I loved it just the way it was.

I added a piece of card stock over the floral area on the center and then added the burlap and the birds nest and stamped the words on using StazOn jet black ink.

Here's the finished frame for my living room.

I love it!!!!

What are you creating?


~Have a fantastic day!!!
