Thrift Store Art Revamp

Quick story.

While I was on the road trip last fall, one of the places we stopped was a thrift store in Nashville called Old Made Good. It’s a super cool store, where the people are giving their old things, new life my giving them a little tweak. Check out their store here.

One of the things I loved the most was the art. They were taking old school painting and collaging over them to give them a modern edge. I bought one, but I also left thinking “hey, I could totally do that.”

Which brings me to today. I was at this big estate sale with Eryn (the house hadn’t been opened since the 1980s) and she spotted this painting.

Being a fall baby, she fell head over heels for it, but was wondering if I could update it. So I instantly flashed back to the Old Made Good painting and said I could make it cool.

Because I wanted to make sure it actually looked nice, I opted to print out a template “wander” and then very carefully cut it out. I then traced it right onto the canvas, and filled it in with black craft paint.
