Thrift Store Swap #5 Part Deaux

Hey Ya’ll It’s the Thrift Store Swap reveal day Part 2 ! Ive teamed up with a great group of women who join together for an exchange of thrift store finds to reimagine. ¬†We all hunt down some cool items and send them to one of the women in the group to repurpose, who in turn sends hers to the next person and so on, Then we all share our projects.

Choosing The Driftwood

For this project I incorporated a few driftwood pieces from my collection, assembled them together with some screws, and freehand painted the details to create this cute little sign for my front porch.
