We’re looking back on some awesome thrift store projects from this past year. I’m sharing my favorites from the Thrift Store Decor Team, as well as my favorite thrift store project from 2018.
I do my fair share of thrift store shopping, but many times I “shop my house” for great project ideas. Why buy something when you may have it already stored away somewhere.
As you look at this collection of projects, think about what you may already have on hand.
It was really hard for me to choose a favorite. I love doing a lot of DIY stuff and using tools, so the thrift store project I chose may surprise you! It’s at the bottom of this post.
Coffee Mug Bird Feeder
Thrift Store Coffee Mug Bird Feeder
I love this idea and think that the twig in the suet is smart, but the clip hanger is brilliant!
Repurposed Spice Rack
Thrifted Spice Rack Used to Display Flowers
Not all projects go as planned, as in the case of this spice rack redo. Don’t get discouraged when things don’t go as planned, just step back and take a break like Kathy did. We’ve all been there at least once!
Upcycled Popcorn Tin
You guys! This repurposed flower tin is made from a popcorn tin.
Vintage Embroidery Hoop
Sometimes a good find might be a little out of your budget as in the case of this vintage embroidery hoop. Christy was careful not to damage the hoop while making this sweet wreath!
Awesome Thrift Store Vase Makeover
Easy tutorial on how to transform a 25 cent vase using dollar store rope and a glue gun!
Stain Resist Technique
Maryann really knows the Power of Paint (and stain)! She uses wood glue as a stain resistor. It's an awesome technique I've never heard of before!
Clock Made from a Vintage Book
Repurpose Old Books into Clocks
Old Reader’s Digest books have great covers and are perfect for this repurposed clock project.

Repurposed Game Board Trinket Box
Are you ready to see the project I’m sharing with you?
Sorry Gameboard Repurposed into Trinket or Gift Box
Following my easy step by step tutorial, you can turn a vintage game board into a unique cardboard box. The gameboard box is perfect for secret treasures or small gifts. My sister and I played a lot of games in our childhood. My favorite was Sorry, hers was probably Parcheesi. If you grew up on these games, you know they are very similar. This particular board game was thrifted. I still have my original childhood sorry game stored away. What game board would you use to make a trinket box?
