For this months DIY challenge, we’re taking on wall art! In college I was a fine art major and remembering those hours I would spend in the studio, paint drips everywhere with a walkman blasting the first 90 minutes of Rent… let’s just say it makes me happy and also reminds me that college was a loooong time ago.
I love these thrift store challenge days as they give me FULL permission to go thrifting and dream up all sorts of projects! When I saw a pair of these bentwood chair at Goodwill for $5 each, I knew they had potential, buuuut… I didn’t want to do anything permanent to them, because bentwood chairs are amazing.
I picked up this side table at the Restore for $10. I know I just finished stripping another restore purchase to bring it back to its wooden glory, so I appreciate that this might seem a little hypocritical, but… painting an old dated piece of furniture can also be an amazing way to give it new life and bring it into your individual decor.
