DIY blog Vintage Revivals turns thrift store junk and blah spaces into fearless DIY projects that every interior designer dreams of. Self-proclaimed thrift store junkie, Mandi Gubler owner and creator of Vintage Revivals has changed the way we look at yesterday’s trash. Her budget savvy DIY projects gives us a reason to rummage through our garages and give that old couch the facelift it deserves. Re-purposing at it’s finest! But it doesn’t stop there. Vintage Revivals takes that boring room, out-dated trailer or dreary home office and revamps it into space we can call home.
From room reveals and thrift-store finds to step-by-step tutorials, the blog is bursting with inspiring ideas for designing spaces on a budget
Vintage Revivals projects have appeared on countless DIY magazines, TV shows and other DIY blogs.
When Vintage Revivals started out no one could predict the huge success it would have, not even Gubler: “3 years ago I started Vintage Revivals with ZERO decorating skills. Like I was a spray paint virgin. Little did I know the Pandora’s box that I was unleashing” (Gubler, 2015). They’re popularity among DIY’ers has earned them the Apartment Therapy’s HOMIE award and the BHG’s Readers Choice Award. Mandi was also a contestant on TLC’S Craft Wars and has appeared on many other TV shows and on popular home design blogs/magazines.
So what is about Vintage Revivals that gives them the edge?
Take for an example one of my favourite projects, the Giant Marquee letter sign! Created for HGTV, the project is for the adventurous DIY’er.
Fun, Empowering, Fearless!
