In a fun twist of fate, I found myself at the thrift store twice in the past week. Thrift store therapy - worth every penny. There's just something about walking into a store and thinking, "I could totally afford to buy anything in here." Not to mention the whole treasure hunt feeling.
On the first trip I found this adorable haunted house for $3. Adorable? With that bright yellow and orange? It was a definitely a fixer upper :).
A can of spray paint primer takes care of the ugly. Just spray right over the old paint then paint as you wish. I was going for a black and white, old movie type of feel so I only added a little paint and dry brushing.
On the second thrift store trip, I was looking for figurines that would look cute dead - you know a Christmas caroler sprayed white. I was too focused on the dead thing when I found - actually Melody found - these trick or treaters. $2.
And what better to go in the graveyard section of my little Halloween scene than these vintage, creepy looking cats. Another score at $1.50 for the set. They were originally marked $1.50 each but they were so ugly that the lady marked them down for me.
A total of $6.50 spent on Halloween decorations this year. Never underestimate the power of Thrift store therapy :)
