Jazzing up some thrift store finds

Saturday was a beautiful day here in Dallas, The Husband and I ran a 10k and I was pretty proud of myself for finishing in an hour and 23 seconds!  Afterwards my Mom, Miss M and I went to Ikea.  Shopping there on a Saturday is crazy, too many people!  I have one of the Ofelia throws on my bed, which I super heart love and I saw they carry it now in a deep teal blue, but of course they were all out!

I almost bought some of theses candle holders...

But I thought 14.99 was a little too much for them and I'm glad I waited because after Ikea we drove around town and came across a thrift store, Frisco Resale, and I found some heavy duty Fitz and Floyd ones!

 I love the detailing on them, but the color was less than desirable so I busted out Krylon's Sea Blue...

I liked the blue, but kept thinking I wanted to try a new color, so after a trip to Home Depot....

I put the kid to work with some Rustoleum Green Apple!  Oh and I made her water the flowers while too :)

Never too young to do some chores!  I'm really liking the green next to my mirror.

I also found a cute canvas Vogue picture at another consignment store.

I love the purples in it and decided to jazz it up a bit with some jewels.  I raided my mom's stash, you know she REALLY loves you if she shares her bling!

There wasn't enough vintage bling to do the letters, this is trim from the craft store. That stuff ain't cheap, take a coupon!

I love the bracelet I added to her wrist.

Bling makes everything just a little better, don't you think?

Happy Hump Day!


  1. It turned out so pretty! The bling definetely helped! A great piece made even greater with bling!

  2. The Green Apple color really works. Fantastic job and thank you so much for using Rust-Oleum!

  3. Love the green apple, but I loved the blue too! Ugh I am torn :) the green apple does look great next to the mirror that you did.

    I love the picture of your daughter carrying the candle sticks. She looks like she is thinking "I can do this, only a little bit further" haha! Too cute!!

  4. I love the candle sticks. Wow ! What a great find. I will have to check out the Frisco store. If your ever in Denton, Twice as nice and Ruths Room always has great finds.

    Great job on the 10k !!

  5. Just read your comment on The Richmond Thrifter blog...Careful with spell check, mine turned thrifter into throbbing in a text! heeehee :)

  6. Love that Vogue print but even more with the jewels! Fabulous. :)

  7. Love the green color. Liked the blue but love the green!!
    And I think your fondess for bling is awesome. I'm so not bling-ed. My daughter always gives me hell about it. She says I'm too blah. Oh well guess I'll have to live vicariously through you!! ha! :)

  8. Ahhh it's all so beautiful! I love that green color...it looks great on your mantle!

    Thanks so much for linking to "20 Below Thursday"! :)

  9. I love that you blinged up the poster!!! Ellie would die to have something like this in her room. I might need to be on the hunt for something similar. And look at you getting Miss Madison to start her DIY stuff early. Love the green so much better also!! XOXO

  10. I love the green too. Bling makes the world go round.


Make my day and leave me a love note!
