What to do with those Thrift Shopping treasures!

Old Chicken Coop

Chicken coop found while thrift shopping

This old chicken coop was a reasonable price at $45 but I was able to buy it for even less!

Tip: As a former junk store vendor, I know that most of the time you can get a discount on items over $25 or least that’s how they do it around here. All you have to do is ask. 

Plans for the chicken coop:

  • Clean it up
  • Add large casters and turn it in to a coffee table, with built in magazine storage.

Metal Cart

This metal cart has been in storage for a while. We finally got around to working on it this weekend. 

Plans for the cart:

Wooden Pedestal 

great for the iPad - found while thrift shopping

Plans for the pedestal:

  • Clean
  • Paint with chalk paint
  • Use it in the kitchen to hold my iPad or cookbook – you haven’t seen it yet but the kitchen got a makeover here’s before, be on the lookout for the after!

Blue/Aqua Wool Coat

Hand-me Down Coffee Table

Hand me down furniture or a dime a dozen at Thrift stores

Plans for the table:

This is one that we (Jessica – my daughter in love) started working on this past weekend. It went from formal to young and fun. Can’t wait for you to see it!

Have you made any great finds lately?

ps. I can’t wait for you see these finished…in fact I can’t wait to see these finished!
