We love to thrift! As evidence of our love to thrift and of our awesomeness at it …. I present … our two most recent DIY projects:
Fake Craftsman Toolbench
We bought this little bench from a thrift store for $5. I found some tools at the thrift store (you can see the little yellow toolbox that they came in at the floor. There are TONS of tools in there too!) for another $5. I found the little construction worker’s hat from a thrift store for $0.10 each. Two cans of spray paint for $5 each. This whole project cost about $20! It’s not as good as this one, but for $109 less, I’ll take it!
Green Lantern Radio Flyer Trike
We found this little Radio Flyer trike at a swap meet for $10. We washed it down and painted it with shiny black and shiny green spray paint for metals. The paint was $5 each. For $20 we got a super cute trike that reflects our family colors. It usually costs $60! We have to get a few stickers made with our family motto on ’em, but other than that … we’re done.
Love, love, love DIY!
