What is Thrift Diving?

“Thrift diving” is a term that I coined to describe the joy of transforming and repurposing used or discarded items into functional and pretty home decor, furniture, and other DIY projects. Here at Thrift Diving, we love taking secondhand or thrifted items, such as furniture or home accessories, and giving them a new lease on life through painting, reupholstering, or other creative alterations.

Thrift diving is a way to save money while creating your unique oasis. It’s about sustainability, reducing waste, and breathing new life into old things with paint, power tools, and thrift stores!
