Thrift Store Finds & Vlogging Announcement


Mod Podged Antique Male Dress Form

Well, you may or may not know that my camera decided to die on me last Thursday so while I pray to the Canon Powers That Be for a replacement, I’m stuck using my rather crappy back-up to show off my latest Mod Podge creation.  You have been warned.

Back when my little brother still lived in the state, he found this killer, men’s dress form on one of our antiquing trips.  As luck would have it this lovely piece has fallen into to my hands and you better believe I couldn’t wait to get busy with the Mod Podge. 

After ripping off the dry-rotted fabric I realized the cardboard underneath was pretty fragile.  I started out applying the podge directly onto it but found it much better to just coat the individual pages and slap them on.  I haven’t applied a top layer, honestly I’m trying to decide if it’s even necessary and I’m afraid instead of being rather soft, it may get that tacky feel to it.  What do you think?

In other junking news, I wanted to show off a few of our latest finds!
Thrifting Junking Upcycling Recycling Cheese Platters

These very worn cheese platters (minus their covers) were a whopping 50 cents each.  I took six of them and now I’m trying to decide whether I want to go ahead and chalkboard paint all of them or get decorative instead?

Thrift Store Find upcycled

Look at this guy…$5 bucks.  I couldn’t care less if he works or not, after a coat of silver spray paint he looks pretty awesome!

Upcycling and Recycling old Sewing Machines

I think Nate paid no more than $6 for each set of these old sewing machine drawers.  Now we just need to decide how we’re going to put them all together!

Thrift Store Find Old Toy Piano

This little piano is in pretty rough shape but for $15 it was just too cute to pass up. 

Next topic…vlogging.  Monday I will be posting my first official vlog and it’s going to be kicking off another series that I’m really excited about!  Yup, that’s all I’m going to tell you for now, hope you can stop by and visit tomorrow!
