Welcome to the Thrifting with the Gals monthly blog hop as we share our thrifted finds and how we decorated with these finds throughout our homes.

“Thrifting with the Gals” started with a group of friends who met over on Instagram and formed a special relationship through a mutual love of home decorating. We share a passion for all things vintage, thrifty, and cozy.

Our styles are all unique, from Kristin’s log cabin in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, Rachel’s farmhouse in North Carolina, Robyn’s beautiful French Nest in Florida, and, of course, myself thrifting for our homes from Vermont to Coastal Maine.

This month, for me, it was all about outdoor furniture flips and DIYs.

It’s mud season here in Vermont, a time to slow down and prepare for spring, which is just around the corner.

My first project was on My Favorite Second-Hand Table, a wallpaper table that I found thrifting last summer.

2. How to Paint Wicker Furniture Shabby Chic Style

I almost threw out these 2 thrifted wicker chairs this year, as they had become so ratty looking.

But with a few cans of spray paint, they were transformed, and we will be heading to Maine with us this summer for our attic guest bedrooms. How about these for a nice, cheap spring decor refresh?
