Today, I’m excited to share a little thrift store upgrade with you. I am participating in Swap It Like Its Hot, a contest of sorts where bloggers send each other items that they found at the thrift store or flea market. The recipient has to transform the item into something for their home.
These sorts of swaps are always fun, but really nerve wracking for me. My style is different than most of the other bloggers participating, so I was really scared about what I would be getting in the mail! Luckily for me, Katrina from Chic Little House sent me an awesome thrift store score.
Truth be told, I really loved these horse head bookends as they were. One of the horses has a chipped ear and the monkey pod wood was a little scratched up. But, what fun would that have been if I just left them as is? No fun at all!
I decided that these would be great for Emma’s room, and I would put them on her dresser underneath the crazy carousel horse shelves. I wanted them to have a little more character, so glitter came to the rescue.
