3 Thrift Flips for Farmhouse Decor
I have accumulated several thrift store items that I bought intending to flip them. I have so much fun perusing the isle searching for my prizes, but I tend to buy them and they set. Well they’ve been patiently waiting on me to get around to them. I’m happy to say that day finally came for them and I’m quite pleased to share my 3 thrift flips for farmhouse decor with you.

Thrift Flip Farmhouse Jug
I’m always looking for something unusual to redo and this jug checks that box! I have some plans for this baby, but first I tacked the loose piece down with some E6000 and hot glue.
I can’t pick the sticker off without making a mess so therefore I plan to cover it later and keep it to the back of the finished project. First I was to stain the jug.
Next step is to apply the burlap ribbon and eyelet to the jug. A little of hot glue sticks the eyelet on the burlap ribbon then all of that goes on the jug around the middle.
So this is still a little plain. I decided to hot glue a strip of farmhouse looking fabric around the middle of the burlap.
I’ve always loved primitive and rustic things so I have plenty of rusty things and berries to finish the decorating. It’s cute I think!
Farmhouse Decor Big Candle Stand
I thought this was a great deal. Not over my $4 thrift store limit for an item. Something different to flip. First thing I did was to spray paint it semi gloss black.
I’ve done a lot of dry brushing in my projects and decided to simply sand in spots to distress this piece.
A glass pumpkin, berry swag, pine cones and a burlap bow finish this farmhouse candle stand perfect for fall. As an extra pop, I strung fairy lights through the pine cones that look sweet after dark.
Thrift Flip Wood Basket
This little guy is very sturdy! I love it’s potential to change for the seasons and holidays! I began with a couple of coats of black semi gloss spray paint.
Using my favorite technique, dry brushing, I used silver lining chalk paint to distress the basket. I like to run sandpaper over it when it’s dry to blend everything.
I’ve learned that black vinyl doesn’t show up good on this black and white finish, so I choose white and dark green to use for my design for this basket. Get design here.
Now to fill it! I place a few bags in then cover that with Spanish moss. After that, I placed a garland of silk leaves in the moss then 3 pumpkins finish this look.
I love all of these flips! I think they are all unique and transformed perfectly! They will definitely be used for other seasons and holidays with a quick change of doodads. So what do you think? Have you flipped any interesting pieces? I would love to see you projects or thoughts in the comments below.
