Four New Thrift Shop Upcycles

This primitive country wooden flag got a new look with Rustoleum Heirloom White Paint and *Old Sign Stencils Getaway Collection Stencils.

I stenciled on the arrow and "Cabin" letters with a bristle stencil brush 5/8" and black acrylic craft paint.

I forgot the "before" photo of this red wooden lazy Susan from the thrift shop. I painted the piece with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Graphite", and stenciled "Vintage" on the center with ivory acrylic craft paint.  I used a coat of water based poly to protect the finish.

This rattan tray was my third upcycle project.  

 I painted the tray with Fusion Mineral Paint in Algonquin, and stenciled the Coffee Stencil on the tray with a 5/8" stencil brush and ivory acrylic craft paint.  I top coated the tray with Tough Coat from Fusion Mineral Paint.

My last project  started with a grater and a 5 1/2" x 12" pine board.  The board was base coated with black paint and top coated with ASCP in Old White.  I stenciled on the arrow and Country with stencils I had on hand.  I glue buttons onto magnets to hold a vintage photo and added a sawtooth hanger to the back.

The arrow is on this stencil:

and the "Country" was on this stencil from Plaid.

Four easy upcycles everyone can do!
*Old Sign Stencils provided me with complimentary samples.
