Why Thrift Store Finds for Home Decor?

There are so many creative ideas for thrift store finds. Thrift stores are stocked with donated items and attract a wide variety of customers.  These shops are perfect for folks wanting to decorate on a budget while often supporting local non profits at the same time.   For example, shops like The White Dove in the Phoenix area all directly support Hospice of the Valley and are run mostly by volunteers.  Non profit thrift stores receive some of the highest quality donations by those that want their previously loved home decor to help fund programs that are near and dear to their hearts.
Also, ever heard the saying, “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure?”  Well, that’s another reason why hunting for diamonds in the rough in a well stocked thrift store is so much fun.  You never know what you’re going to find and how it can be updated to fit in perfectly in with your home decor!

What to Search for to Transform at the Thrift Store

With an ever revolving inventory of treasures, it can feel overwhelming when stepping into your local thrift store.
In order to get the most out of your trip to the thrift store there are tips and tricks that will help you look for diamonds in the rough.  With a little bit of creativity you’ll be amazed at how satisfying it is to repurpose and upcycle thrift store gems to decorate your home.
While many things like sofa’s and lamps may be perfect just that way they are, things like picture frames, baskets and wood furniture can be changed to fit your style.  For example, picture frames can be painted a different color and the current artwork can be replaced with a cork board.  Another simple, but dramatic idea, is to add some dollar store holiday decor to tired topiaries to brighten your space.
