Knick Knacks turned FAB

One of the most satisfying ways to decorate is to accessorize. After a room is finished, it is all about the little details. The pillows, the pictures on the wall, the shelves, the side tables and mirrors, and of course some lovely knick knacks.
 Those little finds can provide such a WOW impact to a room or even just add the right splash of color. 

When you go to the thrift store, keep an open mind. Pretty much anything can be spray painted or painted. So think outside of the box, peruse Pinterest for some fabulous ideas, and be creative. 

Here are some previous posts

Some other fun finds have included small trinket unicorns, swans, squirrels, birds (one of my favorites), and anything that would match your current home decor.

Here are some of the birds I have done recently....I can't pass a lil' bird by without considering buying it.

Spray painting a trinket is easy. 
1. Simply wipe down your find with a rag and some warm water. 
2. Make sure to choose your spray paint according to your item
(you can find specific spray paint for specific surfaces - metal, plastic, stone, etc.)
3. Spray Paint your item and let dry.

I just found this children's toy at the thrift store for  50 cents.
I decided on a metallic gold color.


 Happy thrift store finding. 
I hope you all find something wonderful to redo!
