Thrifty Thursday: Decorate your walls!
Hello, and welcome to the second Thrifty Thursday! Today I have a few tips about decorating your walls with thrift store finds.
Resale shops are a great place to find unique, different, one-of-a-kind artwork to display in your home. I like to search for cool things, or trendy things, that would work well in my apartment.
First thing: collage wall.
After seeing so many cute collage walls on Pinterest, I wanted to make my own. So I started making a little pile of things I already had to hang up on my wall. Once I found what I could of my own stuff, I began my thrift store search. The great thing about a collage wall is that you can hang anything you want on it! It doesn't just have to be pictures. I look for low prices and cool pieces. You can also revamp items you find. For example, I found two small, square mirrors and just painted the frames different colors to customize them. Making a collage wall is a lot of fun and you can really let your creativity come out!
Cool mugs are always one of my favorite finds at thrift stores. Not only are they functional, they also make great artwork in your kitchen. Just by displaying a unique mug collection above the stove or next to the fridge, you create a great functional focal point. And all your guests can admire your great drink-wear too!
Mugs are usually pretty cheap, so when you find one you like, snag it!
That's all for today's Thrifty Thursday. Make sure to stay connected for more tips & tricks on resale shopping!
