Value Village Holiday Tablescape

Remember my Value Village thrifting excursion to find some Christmas decor a little while ago? If you missed it, I posted some tips for DIY Decorating on a Budget, plus a short photo essay of my shopping trip here. I spent a few dollars over my budget of $25, but kept it under $30 at Value Village. Then I headed to Rona for some spray paint for about $10.

There was a small disaster: Linnaeus was playing with the trees & dropped one of them, breaking it into many, many pieces. I spent an hour or two glueing it back together. Then everyone in the household got sick with several viruses... I managed to get the spray painting doneover a couple of weeks by setting up a drop cloth (old shower curtain) outside on the deck & spraying on a coat every time I had a minute or was going downstairs to do laundry.

So better late than never, I guess. Here are the results:

What do you think? I may add lights inside the houses & trees... maybe next year. I'm quite pleased with how the bowl turned out.

Psst... Value Village also has a cool contest on right now. They want to hear how you're giving back to your local community this holiday. Share your story on their Facebook page or use the #GiftingBack hashtag on Twitter & Instagram for the chance to win $1,000 for you plus $1,000 for a non-profit organization of your choice. Contest ends January 3!
