I am an avid thrift store visitor =] and in my last trip I found some really cool stuff for me and for the nursery too. I scored this super cool wood 7 inch tall tricycle for 0.25 cents, and even tho I did not like the heart shaped wheel, I took it home for a little restoration.
I used one of my favorite toys, my Dremel tool kit to shape the wheel and smooth all the corners (it was actually not working because the wheels were oval and not round) then I just spray painted and re-assembled.
It has some points where it looks pretty weak so I know Peanut will probably break it, but for 0.25 cents + some sanding and paint I think it’s worth it!
I wanted to wait and use a more colorful paint for it (green and gray was all I had leftover) but I really wanted to finish it while I was still feeling good (I don’t have many of those days lately) so I ‘m still happy about how it looks.
Are you thrift store hunter? What is the best item you’ve found so far? I’d love to hear!
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
