I feel like I have been on a roll at the thrift store lately. This thrift store urn caught my attention right away with its French Farmhouse DIY vibes. I paid a whopping 25 cents for this little piece with BIG potential among some other great thrifty decor finds from that day!
The next time you’re out thrifting or maybe you find yourself pumping the breaks for a yard sale, keep this little urn in mind. This is one of those pieces with “good bones.” The shape, the texture…all the things are right but it just needs a liiiiitle something. That’s where this makeover comes in.
Here she is. Cute.…but lacking. And if you know anything about thrifting, the first rule is always this. A little paint goes a looooong way. I used a color by Rustoleum called French Beige for this project and there was plenty leftover for future French Farmhouse DIYS
Here is the paint I used. I grabbed it up from Lowe’s but I’m sure it can be found anywhere that carried the Rustoleum brand. The color is soft and perfect for other French farmhouse DIY ideas.
This makeover just required a little paint and a repurposed eucalyptus garland. If you’re starting from scratch, I highly recommend some floral foam to complete this look.
This is the final result of a little bit of paint and a recycled garland. Simple, elegant, and French inspired. It is a welcome change from my classic rustic look in my home and I am enjoying it styled on my coffee table, paired with old books and a candle.
