It's Frugal Decor Tuesday and this week I'm sharing how I repurposed a metal picture frame from Goodwill and turned it into a Chalkboard Menu With An Oyster Shell Patina. I challenged myself to create a look using what I already had in the workshop. The magic was in the wax!
It all started with a set of $10 chrome lanterns from Goodwill. Then the dining room makeover happened. Remember the Antiqued Mirror With New Wood Frame that I shared last week? We made these matching Modern Farmhouse Lantern Sconces to flank it. Even the rustic hooks are a DIY because when you can't find a hook, make one!
When I saw this handmade wooden tool caddy at our local thrift store, I couldn't resist bringing it home. Someone put a lot of time and love into making it and I appreciate their handiwork. I briefly hesitated to buy it because I wasn't a fan of the block-style raised letters. But I love a challenge and knew that could be changed. I mistakenly assumed the word SPA was woodcraft letters glued to the front but even those were hand-carved into the wood.
When Mr. Frugalista came home with an unusual solid oak frame with shelves I had no clue what I was going to do with it. It looks to be handmade and someone put a lot of work into building it but for whatever reason, it ended up at Goodwill before it was finished. One thing was for certain that it wasn't going to be used for it's intended purpose and so it sat in the workshop for about a year.

I love upcycling candle holders from the thrift store. You can purchase them from most thrift stores at a pretty decent price. I found these wrought iron candle holders for $8.00. With a little paint and imagination, they are now shabby chic and are a beautiful addition to my home decor.
This gorgeous, rustic storage case was only $2.00 at my local thrift store. I loved the rustic look and the unique company logo that was in awesome condition. I had found a set of furniture legs in my stash to turn this wood case into a farmhouse side table.

My recent office renovation included a black and white color scheme. I've had this small wooden bento-style box in my stash for a few years. It looks to likely have been a high school shop class project. Its three sections make it a perfect desk organizer and so the stacking keepsake box got a whimsical black and white makeover.

While slowly working my way through my thrift store stash I came across two wine holders. One is a vintage wood rattan wine holder and the other a metal wine holder. Both hold two bottles of wine and both had seen their better days. But I knew with a little TLC, they could be redeemed as unique one-of-a-kind hostess gifts. So with just a little paint, they were transformed into two upcycled wine bottle carriers for summer.
