From Thrift Store Junk to Lovely Vignette


Maria's table and decorations - before

Maria snagged a side table, vase and mismatched frames at a thrift store for $10.67. She gave each its own re-do, and she now has a sweet display in the corner of her home. (Don'tcha love framed image on the right? Cheeky!)
