Spray Paint and Garage Sales

I love love love the idea of combing garage sales, thrift stores, and Home Goods clearance shelves for something specific.  The normal vintage hunt involves sifting for a gem, that something that pops; the thing that you can imagine will fit perfectly in X-marks-the-spot in your home.  But searching sales for that certain special item – the frame, the candle holder, the vintage sewing machine, the Pucci scarf – that’s the real treasure hunt, and the best part of thrifting.  The cans of spray paint; now that’s just an added bonus.

{And if crafting is overwhelming, buy these lovely frames at Mandolin Goose}

    Thrifting is my favorite! Last time I went I ended up with 3 pea coats and a suit for like $20!!

    By the way, I’m giving away a pair of heel condoms. Don’t let the name fool you, they’re an amazing accessory that will spice up and transform any heel! Go to http://www.l0velindsey.com to enter!!

  3. I’m always amazed at what you can do for so cheap…like spray paint ANYTHING, haha 🙂 When we moved in to a house once we had old old fridge and stove (They were brown) well, they make appliance spray paint so we sprayed them black! good as new!

    • Okay, that’s genius. Appliance spray paint … adding it to the list.

  4. I love, love, LOVE this Post!!! I MUST have those pink picture frames! I am going to garage sales this Saturday, now I know what to look for!! Thanks Chica!


  5. LOVE this! I picked up some frames at a flea market a few months back, and painted them white, with plans to make some combination of chalkboard and corkboard, but I’m thinking one of them may now need to become a vibrant hue like these!!
