Thrift Shop Up-Cycle with Decoart Americana Chalky Finish Paint

My project began with the purchase of this wooden item purchased at the thrift shop for $2.99.  I am not exactly sure what it is, but I think it may have been a country-style loaf pan holder for the table.

Cutting Board Display Idea
A piece of weathered barn wood siding became an inexpensive way to hang various sized and shaped cutting boards.  Full details HERE.

Kitschy Thrift Shop Breadboard Upcycle

The truth be told, this week was a horrible week for thrifting!  It wasn't for a lack of trying because I stopped at the thrift shops almost every day this week.

I ended up purchasing these two items, a kitschy Italian cooking breadboard and a solid wooden oval display base that had a sticker "made in Japan".  These items weren't even new last week.  I have seen them around now for at least a couple of weeks, but never quite figuring out what I would do with them.  I actually prefer unpainted, un-decorated  bread or cutting boards, but beggars can't be choosers this week.  After shelling out a whopping $3 for both, I brought them home and gave them a makeover.


Easy Grain Sack Dish Towel Farmhouse Valance

I recently purchased some Park Designs Farm House pattern dish towels.  They have dark red grain sack type stripes on a neutral homespun fabric.

Decorating A Vintage 1950's Bathroom

When I say I have a vintage bathroom, I mean the toilet, tub, sink, tile, and floor are all vintage, in addition to the bathroom decor.

My bathroom would be the "before" on HGTV's Property Brothers.  

Or Nicole Curtis, HGTV's  Rehab Addict, would be searching salvage shops or ebay for missing coral tiles (like the ones above) to restore my bathroom.  

Yes, my bathroom has vintage, plastic tiles in coral.  None are missing and none are broken.

I have a wall mount faucet on a vintage sink with an older custom built vanity.

Vintage Laundry Room Mini Makeover

I changed my laundry room wall color in November from yellow to Sherwin Williams Dover White.  It was a great opportunity to change up the decor.  It's still vintage but less kitschy and more farmhouse.

Here are the before and afters:

Here is the after.  I painted the red bowl shelf with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Old White".  I joined the washboards into a piece of wall art.  I also painted an old ironing board top with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Cream" and hung it on the door to my kitchen.
