It's that time again to share my thrifty finds and hopefully inspire you to think out of the box for your home decor.
My most recent trips to the 'thrifty boutique' were good ones. Aren't they all?
I used wrapping paper in a damask patter as art for the other one.
This office now has a strong focal point. I also used some of my existing frames with some pictures from a recent trip to Napa Valley for this gallery.
Art work ideas: Special photos blown up and placed in matted frames, wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, children's art and even letters someone wrote to you that have special meaning--are all inexpensive ideas that can be used for art work. That is what makes artwork personal and have meaning in your home.
This desk light has a 'swing' so you can adjust just exactly how you want your light to shine on your bookcase. I can not tell you how many of these I see at the thrift store. You could even paint them bronze or silver..
Book Worm: The thrift store is a great place to recycle books. This months treasures include-- An Encyclopedia of Wine and Spirits, A Dictionary of American Slang (because every house needs one of those..), Magic Tree House and My Father's Dragon. They are all perfect addition to our library and add lots of character..
Just a few minutes later and this frame makes a completely different statement.
I hope you are enjoying this series and are inspired to visit a thrifty boutique. Will you?
