This is where I stand up and introduce myself - "My name is Kim and I am a thrift store junkie". Seriously, there is nothing I love better than getting a bargain or finding the perfect item at the thrift store for next to nothing. One thing that I am always on the lookout for is alterable items. On my last trip to the Goodwill Outlet, I found these fabulous wood blocks. I knew right away that they would be perfect to alter ---- the design stopped far enough away from the edge that it would be a breeze to cover up. Then when I got my hands on the brand new release, Baby Steps, well......let's just say it is a match made in Heaven!
This is what I started with:
Using my chalk ink pad, I inked around all the edges:
Then using my favorite liquid glue, I adhered all the squares to the blocks making sure to get the glue as close to the edges of the paper as I could:
Then I punched out stars, hearts, and circles and added the alphabet stickers from this fun sticker sheet:
This is my end result - won't these look adorable in my new grandbaby's bedroom?
What fun things have you found at thrift stores? I would love to hear all about your thrifty finds - even better - share with me a link of something you have created repurposing, recycling and reusing!
