My Aunt is one of the most resourceful people I know. I can never remember a time in my life when Mahala was not creating or restoring something. She is also known for being quite frugal. Whether she is doing crafty projects with fabric and yarn or working with my Mom to remodel a bathroom, Mahala is going to find a way to cut the cost.
This Christmas was no different. Mahala has a granddaughter! I don’t really need to say anything else, do I? You can probably guess that when it came time for Christmas presents for her little angel, Mahala was going to find something amazing to put under the tree for her and she was going to do it on a budget! She headed out to find some goodwill treasures!
Mahala’s Goodwill Treasures
Mahala is like many of us, she loves to shop at thrift stores looking for treasures that don’t cost alot of money. She picked up a coat tree and a little trunk. With just a few bucks for new fabric to make a new cover cushion, a little bit of paint and some elbow grease, she turned them into something amazing.
Do you enjoy finding old things and giving them new life? I’d love to hear your favorite transformations that you have created from thrift store finds. Share them with us so we can all be inspired!
