Thrift Store {week 7}

Last week was such a close week too!  But that’s not really a surprise since all the crafts are always so awesome.

Laura @ Emmielu Designs was a winner last week with her Photo Board. How cute is that?

However, we have to say good-bye to Ashley from Not Just Grannies.  Her cash register didn’t quite make the cut.

Her blog is so fun though!  Everybody run over there and check it out.  Be sure to spread the bloggy love with her too!

And since I’m sure you’re all wondering, here is the rest of the line up from last week.:
#1 – Fabric Tea Set – Ashley T
#2 - Photo Board – Laura
#3 - Kid-Friendly Cash Register – Ashley L
#4 – Explorer Sash – Randi

Now, without further ado, here is Thrift Store week!  Voting, like always, will be open until Friday night.

Craft #1 – Flapper Dress photo prop – Ashley @ Cherished Bliss

This week I made a thrift store photo prop package!
I found the gray knit fabric along time ago at a thrift store on a bolt : ) I was super excited! I hadn’t ever used it because I never really sewed with knits before so I broke it out and figured out a way to use it. I made the leg warmers and headband out of the knit fabric (after much research).
This is what it looks like all put together
Close up of the headband. I used the garage sale scrap fabric to wrap around her tummy and for the rosette on the headband.

And here are my legwarmers that I love so much!

Craft #2 – Cabinet Door Jewelry Holder – Randi @ Dukes & Duchesses

I love altering a good thrifty treasure so this week’s challenge was a lot of fun.  I took a $1 cabinet door from ReStore and turned it into a jewelry holder.
I knocked the panels out, then painted the door blue (using leftover paint found in the garage), distressed it, and gave it a light glaze to shabby it up a bit.
I replaced the panels with window screen to hold earrings and, after giving it a spray of glossy white, kept the door handle for hanging necklaces and bracelets.  I also left the hinges intact and used them to attach the cabinet door to the wall.
I was so happy with the way this jewelry holder turned out and the recipient loves it!

Craft #3 – Pom Pom Light Fixture – Laura @ EmmieLu Designs

I love shopping at thrift stores for craft inspiration & other goodies … I am not ashamed to say that some of my favorite clothes once graced the racks of Goodwill :)   On a recent trek, I scored some funky shaped lampshades and decided they would make the perfect base for my project this week. I also found a cute fitted sheet & a few t-shirts that I shredded up to make some funky flowers. What I created was a funky, fun light fixture for my spare bedroom that I can also use to display pictures! 
I added in the ribbon to add a pop of color && used bobby-pins to attach pictures to the lampshade frame. 
This light fixture was SUPER easy to make & only cost me 
FIVE DOLLARS!!!
