10 Clever Upcycles and Thrift Store Makeovers

Hey guys, popping in today to share a little roundup of clever upcycles and thrift store makeovers. It features some of my own projects and some of the projects from the other talented At Home DIY participants!

1. Painted Thrifted Canvas

This is a neat and easy DIY you can do on almost any canvas you find at a thrift shop. I’d love to try this project with some of the textured paint I have in my stash.

2. Ceramic Unicorn Bookends

I made these adorable bookends using ceramic unicorn figurines I found at our local Habitat for Humanity Restore. They’d be perfect for a kids room or nursery.

6. Wine Bottle Bud Vase

Would I be a craft blogger if I didn’t have at least one wine bottle craft? No. And this one turned out pretty beautiful!

7. Basket Cat Bed

My friend Casey is a cat lady after my own heart, and she made this sweet little basket cat bed that her kitty is modeling here. Honestly, cats love baskets, so you can’t really lose with this DIY.

8. Retro Nightstand Makeover

I don’t usually use bright colors, but when I made over this little retro night stand, I wanted to use a color similar to its original. I think it turned out pretty great!

I made this cutie hanging planter using a Habitat for Humanity Restore stainless steel bowl. You know I’m always down to make another planter, so this was a no brainer. 🙂
