We yearn to have a beautifully decorated home. Thrift stores are the answer to many home decor woes. We may not see the need to spend thousands of dollars on redecorating; or, simply put, you may not have the funds for such a decorative feat.
Here are over thirteen amazing thrift store home decor ideas for you to consider (these are examples of what I have personally found, your local thrift store stock may differ) :
Decorative baskets are a main go-to for my home. They are versatile and available in so many different styles and colors. They are also very easy to be found at your local thrift store. I especially love the look of woven baskets.
What is a home without mirrors? We always need that final look before heading to work, school, etc. After all, first impressions are lasting ones.
Wood crates add a nice farmhouse touch to any room. They are a great addition to your farmhouse home decor. These can also be found on sites such as Craigslist, for free sometimes!
Adding a throw rug to your bedroom or living room can add that extra flare or pop of color that you’ve been wanting.
Candles are a super classy decorative item that can fit almost anywhere.
Who says plates are only for eating? Plates are available in so many different colors, patterns and sometimes even different textures. You can decorate your walls, a buffet, the possibilities are endless!
I find vases at thrift stores all the time. They are a common item to almost any home decor repertoire. Like plates, you can find these in many different colors and textures. But, they also vary in size and material as well.
If you’re like me and can’t keep flowers alive to save your life, then these are a great, low-maintenance and inexpensive way to go. These are very easy to track down at local thrift stores as well – all they need is a little cleaning and a nice container.
Admittedly, I don’t find these very often at thrift stores. But, when I do it is always a treat. If you are looking to go the shabby chic route of home decor, these are a must-have!
Photo frames are probably the most abundant thrift store home decor items listed here. Whether your looking to re-frame a family picture or a picture that you yourself painted, finding the right frame could be a fairly easy task.
Still life, animals, photos of silhouette profiles, etc are a very inexpensive way to add life to some bare walls.
Another thrift store home decor idea is to find some really awesome wall hangings to display.
Tiered displays are such a versatile home decor item. These can be placed in your kitchen to display fruit or they can be used to display jewelry. And, if you don’t find what you’re looking for in the thrift stores, why not get creative and build one to your liking?
These are very popular in shabby chic style homes. Gather about three or four vintage style books, string them together with some twine or ribbon and you’ve just added a little shabby chic flare.
In a world where digital clocks are the way to go, old-style clocks still have their place in society. Add a touch of class to your home decor with a lovely vintage style clock.
They’re fluffy and lovely to look at. These are another item that are very easy to find in thrift stores. Usually they’re available in many different colors, patterns and materials. The only real downside is finding matching pairs…but, this is a great chance to get creative and try some mixing and matching!
One of the first places that I like to go to in the thrift stores are the racks. I’m always looking for nice comforters. This is more than likely where you will find the table cloths, hanging up with the comforters.
Thrift stores are known for their knick knacks. But, amongst them are the statuettes and I sometimes find mixed in.
I love decorative boxes! These are another item that are usually available in different colors, shapes and sizes. They can also be used in any room. There is definitely no shortage of home decor ideas as far as decorative boxes are concerned.
Plentiful and versatile glass jars can easily be found at your local thrift stores. These are great for displaying flowers, succulents and non-floral items such as rocks and marbles…the ideas are countless!
