“Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party #94 — Freebie Craft Room Shelf

Dagmar's Home "Thrifty & Vintage Finds" Link Party

Welcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party No. 94!

If you found an amazing deal lately, a vintage or thrifty find, then I’d love you to link up. You might get featured next week!

I have two fun finds to share with you this week. I haven’t really featured this freebie shelf before that Don brought home a year ago from a job site.

He’s not crazy about me schlepping more furniture into our little cottage, so it was sweet of him to bring it home for me.

I used it on our porch for a while and then moved it into my office for extra storage.

Craft Room Shelf

I’m currently redoing the office to be more of a craft room and finally updated the shelf by wiping it down with Restor-A-Finish and using a roll of removable wallpaper from Goodwill to update the back of it. Easy solution — great impact, right?

Having all of my crafting supplies and little vintage treasures in one room, all organized, is going to be wonderful! But I need to focus on decorating our home for Christmas first — then I can finish the office.

Here is my vintage find: a sweet coffee pot with roses from Germany. When I saw it at the Katonah Thrift Store, I thought: “That looks familiar!”

I knew why: I made a little coffee cup with the same pattern into a candle that’s displayed on the shelf in our powder room.

The coffee pot was $10, and I just didn’t want to spring for that — but the next time I was in the thrift store, it was marked half off. I figured that was a sign that it was supposed to go home with me ;)

Did you show off your latest find last week? If you linked up, thank you!

It was so much fun to see all your finds again, and how some of you updated them.

I decided to feature Cecilia, who writes My Thrift Store Addiction. She bought 12 Jello molds for a dollar and transformed them into little wreaths! How adorable are these?!

And you have to check out the Jello mold bells in her blog header — I want to make those.

If you weren’t featured this week but would like to be, just link up the same post again, and any new ones.

Your turn! If you’ve picked up a thrifty or vintage find lately, I’d love to see it.

I’m thrilled about any link, but if you want to get featured, please only link up thrifty or vintage finds, and link back to this post. I also feature DIY posts if you transformed something that was originally a thrifty or vintage find.

And after you link up, it would be lovely if you would share this party — pin, stumble, tweet away! The bigger the party, the more exposure for all of us.

How to link up:

  • Link up posts about your thrifty or/and vintage find.
  • Please add the party button to your post {see code below} or a link back to this link party post so others can be inspired to join in the fun.
  • Only posts with a link to this party will be considered to be featured.
  • No links to giveaways, or shop or Etsy sites please.
  • By submitting a link you are authorizing for your project to be featured. Featured links will include a photo and a link back to the originating site.

Dagmar, I’m late to the party but what a pleasant surprise to see my mini wreaths featured! Thank you so much! Please drop by tomorrow and link up. I’m co-hosting Creating Christmas and my theme is A Very Thrifty Christmas–you can link up any thrifted treasure, project or decor related to Christmas! Blessings, Cecilia

Your craft room is starting to look awesome, Dagmar–love what you did with the shelf. Your coffee/chocolate pot is really beautiful and it’s so neat that you already had a matching cup! Thanks for hosting :)

Hi Dagmar. Cecilia’s decorated jello molds are great! I have been repurposing some, too. Your coffee pot is so pretty and that shelf works in many ways. I like the wallpaper in the back. Hope you have a great week!

Thanks for hosting Dagmar!!! Super idea to move the shelf inside like that!

Dagmar, I totally get your need to push the craft room aside to get holiday ready. We sisters went on a buying trip (sharing), and now I need to do the same as you. Serendipity on your pitcher, and total sweetness on Don’s part with the shelf. I just recently tried moving one piece (a Sept find) that Mr. P. finally agreed on, from the garage to house, and it wouldn’t work in any of 3 places – hate when that happens!
Thanks for hosting the vintage goodness, now to finish the decorating!

Hi Rita, I can’t WAIT to be done decorating for Christmas and getting it all photographed. I still need our tree and went to three different lots today — all closed! Do people only shop for Christmas trees on the weekend? We’ve had a fake one for years, but not this year.
