Thrifty Makeover {Easter Style}

If you're new around here you may not know that I kinda have a thing for thrift stores, yard sales, flea markets, swap meets and so on. Is thrift shopping a hobby? Or an addiction? Oh no!

I recently picked up this wooden candle stick and egg at my favorite thrift store. I say favorite because every Wednesday is sale day!!! Love that!

They both needed a makeover! So here they are just bursting with confidence!
I started with a paint job and a little antiquing to both. Then I used Mod Podge to stick on the chick and another image on the other side which I got from The Graphics Fairy.

Other side.

 I love my little egg.
And I love turning something old into something new! How about you?

Just your average blue jeans/tennis shoes, plain Jane kinda girl. Yep, that's me! I love God and my family. Married to the love of my life for 17 years & together we are raising two crazy boys. When I'm not making jewelry in my shop I like gardening, thrift shopping, creating, photography, pizza and a good iced mocha.
