Today on one of our outings, we went to a few thrift stores which are so fun!~ Even my 3 lovely young ladies enjoy them. (for a limited time only.:) I found 3 pair of name brand slacks for my DH for 10 cents each WITH the dry cleaning tags on still. I found books for my preschooler for 10 cents each totaling $1.40.
On our way home, I drove by a sign that said free in front of some furniture. I put Brutus, my truck, in reverse and I grabbed a chair, and this mirrored window.
I recycled an old frame and turned one of my daughter’s art pieces into a tray on which I placed the mirrored window. The bird was in my bathroom, so I grabbed her. The bottle I found one day while I was digging in the dirt. I used my Cricut mini cutter to make flowers and leaves (idea from allyou.com) out of blue scrapbook paper and attached them with small pieces of wire, hot glue, and a few buttons for the flower centers. My husband and I walked the property to find just the right branch to spray paint white for my indoor blue flowering tree. 🙂
I LOVED a shower curtain that a friend gave me but could not find a place for it in our house until I was gifted with bedspread set. So I covered my cushioned footstool with part of it and used the last of the fabric from the clean shower curtain to make a cover for a body pillow.
I hand stitched the pillow case because the tiny machine I was using, broke! It took some time, but I didn’t want to leave it undone. (and I told my husband he couldn’t come in until I was done.)
So there you have my Re-purposed shower curtain and unusual Bedroom makeover.
Use what you have or find to make something new and exciting!
