Thanks to our amazing and very talented Thrift Shop Liaison, Crystal, we had a fun and informational thrifty decorating class today. She shared lots of great ideas for pulling together a bookshelf, setting a table for entertaining, how to bring color into a room, and easy seasonal changes. The tip of the night was taking the dust jacket off hardcover books and putting them on the shelf pages out. It gives the shelf a cleaner look and you can use any books you have on hand without worrying about them not matching the color scheme. Brilliant! We all left with a few new items and the challenge to pull items we already own to go with them to create the perfect space. Challenge accepted!
Don't worry if you couldn't make it, just keep an eye out for Thrifty Decorating 102!
