Thrifty Thursday #64

Thrifty Thursday #64 | A Diamond in the Stuff

It’s Thrifty Thursday!!! The other day I was perusing an online yard sale page and spotted someone selling a bunch of chippy old goodies. I jumped at the chance to go grab some and came home with a truck load. Now I have to decide what I’m going to do with all these new thrifty finds.

First up is this old chippy wood door. It’s a good solid (aka: heavy) old door with lots of chippiness. I scored it for $20. Now the question: Do I leave the chippy or get rid of it and repaint? I’ve had my eye on some old door projects for awhile….I may just have to give one a whirl!

Of course I grabbed a couple more windows because I totally need more right? But if the price is right I’ll pick them up when the opportunity presents it’s self. I see lots of windows sold for upwards of $30 or $40 and I don’t pick um up for more than $5 or $10. Sometimes it takes patience but it usually pays off.

If I spot shutters for a good prices I always grab them! My favorite thing to do with them is turn them into card and mail holders. But with the matching two shutters I’m wondering if I shouldn’t find something different to do with them? I picked these up for $5 each.

Now check out this really awesome frame. It’s plastic and badly needs some TLC, but isn’t it amazing? Wanna know what’s even more amazing? I scored it for $5.  But I’m really stumped on this one! A paint job is in order but then what? Maybe just leave it as that, an open frame for a wall gallery. Any ideas?

Well that ends my latest Thrifty Thursday finds for now! Got some great stuff and now it’s the hard part, deciding what each piece will become!!!

Linking up to these great link parties!!!

    I love everything you found. You could use your empty frame to frame a smaller mirror or art or plates/platter.
