Have a closet full of old thrift store art work? Read on to see a simple two step way to upgrade thrift store art!I used to have a Saturday morning ritual where I would drive around town and stop at all of my favourite stores – Missions Thrift Store, Value Village, Michaels, Winners, and occasionally Wal-Mart if I needed some groceries. I was always on the hunt for something I could upgrade, but had a terrible habit of never actually following through on any of the projects. When Sean & I moved in together and I had to move all. that. crap. from one house to another, I decided to seriously cut back on my thrift store shopping until I started using up what I already had! Since I have so many project ideas in my head (and the products needed for them in my closet!), I am so happy to be joining up with a group of amazing bloggers to bring you a monthly thrift store challenge!

Make sure you follow our board on Pinterest for more upcycled decor inspiration!Today, I’m sharing my Thrift Store Art Update project! This is a perfect project to use up what you already have. Follow these two steps and you can upgrade thrift store art in no time! I picked up four of these paintings at Value Village one day for a STEAL – they were beautiful as is, but I knew that with a little bit of time I could take them up a notch.

For some reason, two of these frames were marked for $2.99 and two of them were marked for $9.99. I was going to buy them anyways since I fell in love instantly, but the cashier took a look at the tags and since all four were labelled the same day and were identical, so she gave me the $2.99 price for each of them!! Score.
