Thrift Shop Mirrored Planter Box Up-Cycle with Paint, Stencils & a Drawer Pull


 My project starts with this thrift shop mirrored planter box.  

When I'm lucky the mirror can be easily removed for painting but on this one, it was not the case.  I didn't tape it off either.  I used a very fine bristled artist brush to carefully and slowly paint along the mirror.   I brushed on two coats of DecoArt Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Relic.

Planting My First Junk Garden of 2017

I purchased this old table at the thrift shop for $5.  I really didn't want the table, I wanted the heavy metal base.  I didn't even care that it was rusty.

Thrift Shop Chair Upcycle with Fusion Mineral Paint & Old Sign Stencils


I found this vintage chair at the thrift shop last week.  
First I sprayed it with Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye Clear Shellac Spray .  The shellac will prevent any bleed through of old stain.

Outdoor "Farmhouse" Barn Door Sign/Planter Box with Old Sign Stencils


 I purchased this partial barn door with awesome rusty hardware last year at a local consignment shop.  It was a rustic backdrop last season to some of my container gardens.  

Outdoor Vintage Junk Decor

Isn't this a fun little shelf?  I found it last month at Jackson's Icebox Antiques & Collectibles, a favorite little occasional, local shop.  It's so rustic.  It fits perfectly in this spot on my covered patio.  Now let's do some styling!
