Welcome back to another Thrift Store challenge!
By now I’m sure you know the rules but in case you are visiting for the first time, each month we find something at a thrift store, flea market, garage sale, side of the road or something like that and show y’all what we did with the item to make it work in our homes.
This month I found mine on Facebook Marketplace for $5. I know, right?
I’ve been needing something for over the toilet in my Powder Room ever since I gave it a makeover but so far hadn’t found the right thing.
Clearly this wouldn’t work in my white and blush colored Powder Room as is so it’s gonna need some work.
Chalk paint to the rescue.
After several coats of chalk paint, I used antique glaze to give it an aged look.
Then comes the fun part. Styling the piece.
I’ve had the little houses for a couple years now but they were multi-colored. This year I painted them all white and added faux snow to the rooflines and around the bases of them.
The arches in this piece put me in mind of church windows.
I replaced the wooden base of some bottle brush trees with a cabinet knob and also used some of my chalk painted poinsettias.
Not bad for $5. 😉
