Thrift stores are one of my favorite places to go when I'm bored, want to pass time or get my shopping fix without spending a lot of money. Lucky for me I pass a pretty decent one when I head into town. Most times I walk out with nothing (okay, maybe a book!), but every now and then I find some pretty awesome pieces to transform.
vintage metal card catalogs that I updated and the Anthropologie knock off hooks. I was not expecting to find either item, which just goes to show that you never know what you'll find.
I try to keep an open mind when browsing thrift stores and look to Pinterest for inspiration (you can follow my Thrifty Transformation board here). I'm always coming across some pretty awesome transformations and wanted to share a few of my favorites.
