Thrift stores are great places to find some amazing items at ridiculously low prices. Places like Goodwill and other local thrift stores are not only full of great, and often hilarious, fashion finds, but other goods that would look perfect in your home. While many of these items may look a little lackluster at first, they can easily be transformed into something truly amazing. Take a look at these awesome upcycled thrift store items for a little inspiration on your own scavenging adventures.

The project itself is incredibly simple, involving only a few items, but they definitely made a huge difference.
