Ten On The Tenth Thrift Store Makeover

Hello Dear Readers and welcome to TEN on the TENTH! If you are a bargain shopper today is your day! Today you will find thirteen bloggers sharing economical, easy and naturally, thrifty ideas on how we made the most of our thrift store shopping experience. Today I am sharing my DIY Farmhouse Wall Hook Rack. This DIY project is a quick makeover and makes for super cute home decor, for any room in our homes. Double bonus is this... I think it'd be perfect for Valentine's Day too!

As you probably know by now we recently moved to Monument Colorado and naturally one of the first things I wanted to do was check out the nearby shops. Monument has a super cute downtown and I have really been looking forward to checking out a few of our local thrift shops too.

This past week Sadie and I loaded up in the Yukon and headed out. I even had a small list of wish items in my purse and I had truly planned to make a full day of it. However once I arrived at Tri-Lakes my search ended.

But for this blog post our challenge was to find a thrift store find for under ten bucks. You won't believe this - I found my treasure for $5.00 with money left over for a chocolate milkshake!

I found this rather humdrum stained wooden rack and gave it a new life with some light sanding, chalk paint and acrylic paint.

From Drab to Fab in just a few simple steps!

P.S. Customize this makeover to your liking, DIY is all about your vision and style.

  25. The wall hook rack is really cute, Jemma. You did a fantastic job on the sanding and the painting, and the red polka dot heart adds a special touch. It looks so nice in your home. I'm glad that you're checking out all the thrift shops in your new area. This one looks so charming. When I saw the Raggedy Ann doll, I smiled, as Nel still has hers from her childhood. I look forward to seeing all the treasures that you found that day. It's nice to hear that you are settling in and becoming familiar with your new area. Hello Sadie, you sure are cute.

    Happy Valentine's Day, dearest Jemma.
