Hello sweet Friends! I have a quick thrifty makeover for y’all today! Actually I have three.
For the first time in months I decided to treat myself to a morning of yard saling on Saturday.
Here is what I found:
Okay…I also hit up the thrift store! I think I found some fun stuff. That blue case in the front is an old hairdryer…I just wanted it for the case, but I thought that was a cool find. The table was only $20 and the mirror was only $5!
Today I’m sharing what I did with these three baskets:
I paid $12 for all three. The bottom two are picnic baskets, but I’m not exactly sure what the smaller one on top was intended to be used for. I just love baskets, especially when they have lids so they can hide all kinds of things!
All it took was a couple of cans of spray paint to unify this trio:
My favorite update?
Adding these old wheels from my stash to the bottom of the large flat one! I don’t recall what they came off of and they weren’t the prettiest wheels, but I decided to save them anyway. They gave this little basket a fun detail. I just stuck them through the bottom.
I gave the little basket on top a pull that came from an old dresser…
I spray painted it with spray primer and roughed it up a bit. It just adds a little unexpected detail…
Again, I just poked it through the weave in the basket.
I painted the white baskets with Rustoleum spray primer, and the blue basket is Rustoleum Robin’s Egg Blue:
These are going in my living room, I just haven’t decided exactly where yet. I’m going to store my magazines that I just can’t seem to part with, in them.
That bottom one was only $2 at the thrift store.
I found it after finding the others and thought it would be great for stacking.
It might be my favorite.
I just love paint!
My living room is really coming together. I decided on curtains, and on Thursday I’ll be sharing how I updated my living room coffee table for the second time to work better in our new space!
It looked like this when I bought it four years ago:
You can see what it looked like after its first makeover HERE in a post I shared on decorating my home with thrifty finds!
It looks much different now! I’ll be sharing that with my Furniture Fixer Upper Girls, so they’ll have makeovers of their own to share also!
UPDATE: See how this table looks now HERE!
See y’all then! 🙂
