Thrifting revealed!

Here are my first two thrifting projects from this past weekend. More to come on the ladder and mini tables, but I'm in the love with my giant chalkboard and two lamps. I am going a little crazy with the chevron over here (more of that later). My obsession began over a year ago with my guest room and now its seeping into the living room. So pleased with how our little revamp is coming together!

Before: Picture Frame

Strip it apart & sprayed the frame

Chalkboard painted the picture

After: Chalkboard ready for all holidays

 Vintage lamp bases before

Spray them Tiffany blue

Add Chevron lamp shade

love these beauties, still working on where they are going to "live"

Thanks for stopping by!
