“Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party #126 — Pinboard Redo

by Dagmar Bleasdale on July 13, 2016


Welcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party No. 126!

How is this summer treating you?

We have had family in town for two weeks from Australia and have been busy having fun with them.

Don and Landon drove to Washington, DC, for three days with them, and I got so much done!

One of the projects I have been wanting to finish forever is now hanging in my office.

Let’s get this party started!

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

I also feature DIY posts if you transformed something that was originally a thrifty or vintage find.

I made something out of these thrifted items:


a big pinboard I bought five years ago for a couple of dollars at this epic tag sale, and fabric that was on sale at Michael’s.

That pinboard was so big, I had to put it over L’s head when we drove home. Aw, how little he was!

Plus I reused orange juice can tops again.

Remember when I made plant markers out of them last summer?

I’m going to write a whole post about what I made out of these items, but if you want a sneak peek and just can’t wait — I posted the final result on Instagram.

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

I decided to feature Kristine, who blogs at The Painted Hive. She wrote an epic post about redoing a $5 thrifty sideboard into this beauty:


Thanks for linking up, Kristine! Feel free to add this button to your post or blog, and I hope you’ll link up again.

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 for a feature.
  • 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.

Hi Dagmar, thank you for hosting. I did some DIY and a huge amount of rearranging furniture and contents of furniture this week. Not finished yet but it is a good feeling.

Oh wow, thank you so much for the feature :)
Had to laugh at this photo of your massive pin board in the car. I’ve done that with panels of plywood on more than one occasion! The kids think it’s a fun novelty!

Isn’t great to get little projects checked off the list, Dagmar? I bet you were so busy you hardly had time to miss your guys! Happy crafting, and thanks for hosting!
