One of my favorite aisles in the thrift store is the wood
aisle. These are some of the things I found on one of my
last forays - I was especially excited about the little
hutch and the wooden shoes.
These are after pictures of the hutch and the chair, aren't
they cute?! I have visions of making the little hutch into
a miniature craft cabinet with folded bolts of cloth and
jars of buttons and stuff. For the little green chair I
want to make a cushion and imagine relaxing in it
with a mojito at my side.
I don't have a before picture of this bench but it was
plain wood when I bought it. I used acrylic paint and
finished it with a coat of varnish.
These are fun for the kids to do too. You might
need to use some sandpaper on items that have been
previously painted or varnished but take a look next
time you're thrifting and see what you come up with!
