I have compiled some of my favorite thrift shop and DIY projects that would make great Christmas gifts, along with gift ideas from the Thrift Store Decor Team Members.  Check out the links to the projects for instructions.

Starting out with serving trays!  I have upcycled a lot of thrifted trays.  I love this Free Tray Makeover  above with blue Dixie Belle Chalk Paint and patterned stencil.

This Round Tray Makeover started out as a thrifted walnut tray.  I love it in blue and white with ironstone or blue & white china.

Why not give the gift of a Stenciled Area Rug?  Stenciling with acrylic paint on a flat woven rug is not that hard!
