Shopping at the thrift store is one of my favorite ways to keep home décor costs down. Typically I go with an idea of items that I am looking for. Sometimes, unexpected items jump out at you. Just have a project in mind, so that you aren’t left re-donating your purchase.
The glass “candy dishes” (that was what the lady called them) were an item that screamed, “Use me in a project.” They were quite a steal at $3 for the pair. The mirror I found under a bunch of picture frames, it was $1.50 and already had a felt back. I knew the three items would look adorable on my dining table. The first thought was floating candles, which could easily be switched out. However, my kids have been begging for us to grow lucky bamboo.
The living centerpiece turned out simple, yet eye catching. We change the water weekly, to maintain healthy lucky bamboo. For less than $20 and 30 minutes of work, I think this centerpiece is a Thrift Store Winner!
