GW Shop & Hop Before and After

Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick and I hosted a Goodwill Shop and Hop in the Indianapolis area last month and we wanted to showcase what some of our truly talented Hoosiers and one Kentuckian made over from their Goodwill loot.shophop Erin from Beauty in the Attempt turned this $1 Goodwill find…IMG_0310[1] into this “lovely” piece. (See her post here).IMG_0610  Then she turned these little terracotta pots…IMG_0308

into these painted numbered pots.  So sweet!   IMG_0411

Shannon from Quarry Orchard used her Krylon Oil Rubbed Bronze (ORB) Spray Paint from her swag bag and attacked some candlesticks.IMG_3479

She definitely had a vision, that ORB spray paint made them classic home decor…

Lisa found a doll crib for her daughter’s birthday gift.  With a little white spray paint and tightening up some screws she made it look brand new.

I hope you enjoyed the before and afters.  With a little imagination, a can of spray paint and some Goodwill items you can get a lot of mileage in your home decor for a fraction of the cost of purchasing it new.

    Wow! Cute! I can't believe the candlestick/pot top bird bath. Very clever! 🙂

  4. Michelle Hoad says:

    Either I have no vision, or my Goodwill stinks. Probably an awful combination of the two.

  5. I came here to read about how you met your home but was too distracted by this fabulous post! What AWESOME finds, and better yet, how you creatively gave them new life! I'm a follower now!
