Thrifty Life Thursday #20 and Small Future Projects

Clean these.

And these.

Paint these.

Then, list them all on Etsy.'s about we take a look at some fun new features from last week?

We all love a good makeover, up-cycle or re-purpose. This amazingly charming headboard is ALL THREE!

Lynn from Shabby Story shopped her house...stop by to see what she did to create one great-looking bedroom with what she already had on hand.

Tina from What We Keep never ceases to surprise me - she sees things from a slightly different perspective, and it's wonderful! 

You've simply GOT to see how she displayed a pair of antique child's boots. Clever girl. 

Bookbug from So Many Books, So Little Time created a charming vignette using beautifully edited colored vintage dishes and of course, vintage books.

      Hi Revi, looks like you've got your work cut out for you. Love Lynn's bed! I am not familiar with the other two blogs. Will hop over and visit later today. Off to church.
