Ever go to a thrift store, find something cool (or not so cool), and think what the heck would someone do with this? That’s the challenge. 33 bloggers went on the hunt for some thrift store treasures, mailed them to their partner, and now we’re revealing our makeovers.

I was excited and admittedly a little nervous opening up the package I received from Meagan at The Charming Farmer. I’m not the most creative person, so I was a little terrified to open up the box and be completely stumped.


Luckily all the items were awesome!kids-post-boxI turned the wooden tissue box into a mailbox for the kiddos.

All kids love playing mailman. Right?kids-mailboxdiy-kids-mailbox


swapit3Excited to see what Rachel from Shades of Blue Interiors did with the box of thrift store finds I mailed her. I can’t even remember what I put in that box!

Check out the other 32 thrift store makeovers.

I always love seeing what ideas other people come up with. Loads of creativity!

  1. How fun!! This is so cute–my daughter would have loved something like this when she was little. Now she loves Manhattan. They grow up so fast!

  2. Oh my goodness… how have I never seen an old tissue box and thought to do this! You’re SO right… kids LOVE a mailbox. Genius. Thanks for the inspiration and being part of the game again! xx
