Today I am sharing how to revamp and style your thrift shop finds. Last week I shared with you the corner cabinet I found at the consignment shop. It was in pretty good shape when I found it but it still needed a little revamp.
I think the easiest way to update any thrifted find is with paint. It is a quick and inexpensive way to completely change the look of a piece or just a way to freshen it up.
I wanted to freshen up the corner cabinet by spraying it with a bright white paint to match the other bookshelves in my Home Office. Here is a reminder of the piece before I sprayed it.
I think this piece is adorable, it is small with really cute detailing.
To add more height to the cabinet, I added a few tall vases to draw your eye upward. I found the wooden vases at Target. I wanted to add wood tones to break up some of the white. I also added touches of gold to tie into the rest of the gold scattered throughout the office.

I was finally able to use my HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer that the Gman bought me for Christmas and I am in love with it! It was super easy to use. The most difficult part was getting the consistency of the paint correct and even that was pretty simple. I was so excited to get started even though it clearly states in the directions to practice spraying on scrap wood but I jumped right in and started spraying my cabinet. My biggest regret is not being able to use the HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer sooner. I was able to spray the entire piece within minutes and the finish is so pretty. Now that we are moving into Spring, I am super excited to be able to spray more pieces!
How to Revamp and Style Your Finds
My Target clearance sale find…loving the gold bookends.
I picked up the little mouse votive in a little boutique shop in a small town not too far from us. Even though mice freak me out, I thought this little guy was sweet!
I love adding unique pieces to my shelves. You can read about the Typography DIY art here.
The next time you are out and see a piece that needs some love, remember the power of paint!
Until Next Time…
