DIY Farmhouse Thrift Store Ideas
Welcome back to the “Thrift Store Throwdown Challenge” 2 weeks ago, I shared where 15 bloggers joined together challenging each other to take what was sent to them from their thrift store challenge friend turning their thrift store pieces into a one of a kind treasure. Today I will be sharing the two pieces I received from my friend BonBon aka (Bonnie) who blogs over at Farmhouse 40 and how to DIY thrift store items into farmhouse decor ideas.
I loved the pitcher the way it was with all its patina and all, however I wanted it to go more with our farmhouse style, by making it look more like an enamel pitcher.
How To DIY a Metal Pitcher To Look Like Enamel
- metal pitcher
- high gloss spray paint
- fine grit sanding block
- clean pitcher
- spray painting in a high gloss white
- lightly sanded around the edges of the rim and handle
How to DIY A Farmhouse Picture with Giftwrap
Next for the farmhouse rooster picture
recently I shared how to get more from rolls of gift wrap and used it on a couple of pieces in my kitchen to create a kitchen vignette. To go along with the farmhouse vignette, I decided to redo the rooster picture completely using just the frame. I used three different kinds of gift wrap
- 3 different patterns of gift wrap
- Scissors ( I highly recommend these scissors for trimming and capal tunnel)
- mod Podge
- pig chalk board tag
- tape (optional)
- remove picture from frame wrap with choice of gift wrap apply mod podge to back side edges I used scotch tape to help keep it in place.
- cut gift wrap pieces to the size of the sections of the frame
- adhered them with mod podge let dry
- apply mod podge to the entire frame to seal
- add a pig chalk board piece to the center of the frame with hot glue
