Here at Roost and Restore I love to show people how they can decorate their homes resourcefully. A lot of the times that means taking something from a thrift store and giving it a fresh makeover so it will fit your own personal style. This thrift store flip is no exception!
You just might be surprised how far a little paint and creativity can go when decorating your home. It’s all about using the resources you have to decorate. It’s that simple.
Last week, I came across this cute little mini screen door at my local thrift store for only $5. And although I didn’t love the green color or the dated apple swag, I knew that this was a thrift store flip that had the potential to light some inspirational fires.
Right after I found this adorable little screen door, I went straight to Walmart to hunt for something to use as a mini wreath or door hanger. I grabbed an assortment of different ornaments that I felt like I could somehow use to create something simple.
I began this thrift store flip with a little bit of prep work. I removed the screen from the back of the mini door using a box blade and removed all hardware before painting with a white chalk paint. I really thought the white would resemble an old fashioned screen door.
After paint, I reattached hardware and replaced the original screen with a bit of hot glue and wouldn’t you know it, it was LOVELY!
I ended up combining parts from a couple different ornaments and modified the bells a bit using rub n buff. I mean look at how adorable this thing is! I think I need a life size version of this wreath for my door…
