Fantastic Inspired Boots
I just love, love, loved these Maison Martin Margeila's Cement-Dipped Graffiti Ankle Boots! But without an extra $1195 laying around to purchase them for myself, (not to mention they were sold out) I set out to see what kind of thrift - savvy boots I could make on my own!
My first task was to start looking for an appropriate pair of suede ankle boots at local thrift shops. Unfortunately, I forgot to take an image of the beige boots I found before I started "graffiti-ing"! I bought a can of gray spray primer and a few cans of neon spray paint, and after that, I just got funky with it! Check out my results below:
This is a fun and easy way to be fashion forward using thrift shop finds!
Cute pair of Asian style chairs. These would be great lacquered bright red!
Hollywood Regency wrought iron tassel stool. This will be recovered in leopard.
Pegasus glass top dining table. Steve Miller would love this one!
Rattan twin headboards. Key West style
This is a great price for this classic wingback chair.
Blue and white toile is a traditional favorite. The seat cover zips off so you can soak it in a bucket of Oxy Clean and water to remove spots.
Pagoda shadow box.
Leather beaded sandals. Perfect with skinny jeans and a t-shirt.
Funky shabby chic chest of drawers. Painting a chest two colors and distressing the finish with sandpaper is a fun look.
I couldn't pass up this vintage book about Christian the lion. If you haven't seen the youtube video you must look it up! Christian the Lion Reunion video is one of my favorites!
Kooky vases made by a thrift shop volunteer.
Lots of quirky characters hangin' around the thrifts...
and a few famous ones too!
Have a happy day!
Pagoda and bamboo, the perfect combo, better than fried rice and miso soup!
Vintage John Widdicomb set in a dreamy sherbert painted finish.
Amazing find at the local Goodwill!
Mirror, mirror on the wall, I see bamboo and love it all!
This set has been spruced up with a coat of Annie Sloan chalk paint. Chalk paint is so fun to work with. No sanding or priming required and one coat of paint usually does the trick. This grouping is perfect for a beach bungalow!
Happiness is.... when you find an Emilio Pucci scarf in a thrift!
Framed vintage Hermes silk scarf. Thriftfab!
Chanel style vintage beaded dress. Perfect for the holidays!
Thriftfab dresses. Que sera sera!
Beads and baubles
More leopard chairs, Ming style
Never met a leopard print I didn't like! Oh, and I had to have this beaded silk dress from India!
Tory Burch, Averardo Bessi, vintage beaded sweater, Palm Beach handbag. It's so fun to find designer labels!
This painted metal dining table is a tropical treasure!
When buying and selling in Florida, pineapple lamps and palm tree candleholders are a must have.
White lamps are always best sellers, especially in pairs.
Clear glass lamps are even better. They match everything!
This is one of my favorite finds. Signed original paintings are always a great investment.
Vintage Foo dogs are highly sought after. They're very well trained and don't eat much! Thriftfabulous!
Speaking of doggies, I always grab bookends, artwork, statues, and ceramic pieces that look like Sailor.
Sailor likes thrifting, Elvis, yard sales, fashion, Shirley Temples, Scrabble, antiques, travel, Duck Dynasty, bacon, and lightning bugs!
