DIY 3 Ways: Thrift Store Art

I'm starting to get a bit fidgety in my apartment. We've been in the same spot for almost three years: the couch feels too teeny, the gallery wall too boring... so I'm beginning to itch for a few changes, yet I keep putting them off for a "someday" apartment. But, when I think about how much I hate moving and how much uncertainty there is in renting, I might as well embrace small changes in my current situation, right?

Up first? Fresh art! There are so many great ideas for ways to spruce up sad oil paintings relegated to your local Goodwill, from paint-by-numbers to the dipped-in-paint look. Here are a few favorites I found for thrift store art. Happy decorating!

Inspiration: Cone Back Earrings

Things for me have come a grinding halt thanks to an unexpected surgery on a tendon last week. While I'm hobbling around the house with my cast and crutches, I hope to do at least a little crafting! I'm looking forward to sharing a DIY very soon inspired by these cone-backed earrings. I especially love the pearl and spikes-- they take "business in the front, party in the back" to a whole new level!
