Trash to Treasure Thrift Store Flip

I always appreciate a good thrift store.  Give me 20 minutes and $10 and I'll come out with something amazing for an upcoming DIY project.  Lamps, vases and frames are in abundance at most locations and they're so easy to paint and decoupage to match your decor.  For this random set I used flowers printed from my home computer, Stick & Style Stencils from Redesign With Prima and Americana Decor Texture Medium in Bright Gold.  DONE!  These 3 elements can turn any 3 random pieces into an amazing vignette for your home.  I've included the flower images I used below.  Make sure to check out the video to see exactly how I did it.  Happy hunting and don't forget to
Make Your Mark!
 I adore this set!
The Texture Medium gives dimension and richness to the pieces
Toss in some books and a plant and you're golden!
Watch how I did it here!

Happy decorating!
