So finally I got to visit my nearest Goodwill Store last week and was so surprised with all the little treasures I found over there. Though this store has mainly a huge store department, I could find some interesting items. As you’ll see from this photo, I got a great deal for only $6 in total. So what I got, you might be asking: a pewter vintage mug, a set of transparent teacups, a small etched flower vase and two old books. Here are some ideas that pretty soon I’ll be trying on my new found items.
Reusing old teacups:
|These are some of the ideas one can try on old teacups. 1. Stacked cups can be used to place candles and placed them in a safe area far away from little hands (Photo: Johanna Vintage). 2. Old cups can also be used to grow herbs on your kitchen area (Photo: BHG). 3. If you like to have your everyday jewelry at hand, a teacup is the perfect size to place your favorite earrings or your necklace (Photo: Pinterest).|
Playing with paper:
|Lately I have seen a tendency to use old books as decorative items. But not just over a coffee table; they are been use as accents by folding their pages in various very creative ways. 1. As you’ll see on the first picture this book has its pages folded in a way it almost seems to be a carousel. For a complete tutorial you can visit A Whimsy Willow. 2. Old book pages can also be use to decorate your wall making a focal point of it. On this picture found on Pinterest you’ll notice these pages have been printed with colorful illustrations. This idea can be an excellent option for a kids room. 3. Encasing old books with folded pages inside wooden boxes is another great example on how to reused them to decorate a wall. This piece of art was made by Keri Muller and is called “The form of things”.|
