Have you ever created a thrift store makeover from some little trinket you found at Goodwill or Thrift Savers? Have you ever had someone send you a flea market find to creatively re-purpose? Well, that’s exactly what a group of us bloggers did, thanks to a “Swap it Like It’s Hot” challenge from Charlotte at Ciburbanity. We each sent a thrift store find to someone and I can’t wait to see what everyone received and how they transformed their thrifty gifts. You’ll see the list of participants at the end of this post.
Are you ready to see the thrift store package I received from Bee at Windgate Lane?
When I opened the box I knew immediately what I was going to create with these items.
I also painted half the basket to give it a two-toned look.
Once the paint dried, I hot glued the candlestick to the bottom of the basket.
I used a thick layer of glue to make sure it would be sturdy.
I wasn’t sure the hot glue was going to work, but I’m happy to say it did!
Once again I hot glued the candlestick to the tray after the paint dried.
A special thanks to Bee at Windgate Lane for sending me a great thrift store makeover package.
