10 Thrift Store Home Decor Trend Hacks Using Mod Podge

Styling a home you love is so important - it’s where memories are made, laughter is shared and your own little piece of the world... but does flipping through gorgeous (but expensive!) home decor catalogs make your wallet cringe a bit? We’re sharing 10 genius ways to hack home decor trends to interpret ideas with your own flair, plus to save you from serious sticker shock! 

Hit up the thrift store - or even your own basement - to find pieces to upcycle using our favorite secret DIY weapon, Mod Podge! With 21 different formulas, there are endless ways to decoupage, glue, seal and finish your way to beautifully affordable home decor. 

10 Before/After Thrift Store Home Decor Trend Hacks 

Give any home a touch of glam with this take on the gold feather trend - use wrapping paper and Mod Podge to makeover a tray, perfect for corralling accents on the coffee table. 

#1: Thrift Store Tray Makeover |

Being a princess never goes out of style! This dreamy nightstand idea will overjoy the little princess in your life - skip the costly princess-themed pieces you’ll find out there and add tulle and Mod Podge Extreme Glitter to make your own magic!

#2: DIY Princess Nightstand | Made To Be a Momma 

Love the idea of a ‘pop of color’ front door but terrified of the big commit? Boost your curb appeal instead with an adorable accent planter painted in a bright color. We love the house number added with Fabric Mod Podge.

#3: Decoupaged Planter | Petticoat Junktion

Anthropologie is known for their swoonworthy decor pieces, but also for being quite expensive. That’s why we adore this DIY take on decorative trays using floral cutouts for a fraction of the cost! 

#4: DIY Watercolor Oversized Floral Serving Trays | The Pretty Life Girls

Classic gingham is having a moment and even plates can get in on the fun! You’d spend beaucoup bucks on monogrammed chargers - instead, Mod Podge your way to these budget beauties.

Decorative books are the perfect accent to add dimension and different levels to a bookshelf - Ashley gives us the write stuff with this inexpensive book set makeover! 

#6: Restoration Hardware Inspired Decorative Books | Cherished Bliss 

Stools are super easy to find at the thrift store and are a fun way to add an accent color to any room. This designer inspired knockoff is simple to do, too.

#7: Designer Stool Knockoff | One Artsy Mama

We love the idea of adding on a shelf to a vintage window - how fun are the floral decoupaged cutouts for a sweet touch? 

 #8: Vintage Window Shelf DIY | The Cards We Drew

Decoupaged planks of wood transform a ladder into insta-shelves - so easy to move and rearrange to your heart's content! 

#9: How To Make Your Own Easy Ladder Shelves | Flamingo Toes
