Trendy Tip: Using Preloved Finds


Today, I'd like to talk about the value of thrift stores, antique stores, and consignment stores.  These places can be your greatest decorating partner when it comes to finding unique and cost-effective preloved items (i.e. secondhand) to really amp up your event!  With a simple DIY fix of just a coat of paint or some clever pairings of mis-matched dishes or jars, you can make your event look totally personalized without breaking the bank!  Which brings me to the wedding I'd like to showcase today.  This super creative, DIY, vintage theme was totally amazing and all about utilizing preloved thrift stores finds, unexpected items like old doors, and handmade items.

Creating your own signage with a chalkboard is a fun and personal touch.

So many cute and creative details!  I hope this allows you to see preloved items in a whole new light and hopefully you can find and create treasures of your own!
