Artists decided to inject a little fun into these discarded works and give them a second life by adding Thrift Shop Painting Monsters to the scenic landscapes. The trick is to match the paint originally used (e.g., acrylic or oil) and try to blend the monsters into the original scene as if they were always there. It can be a challenge if the original is too textured or old but the results speak for themselves. But we feature projects of upcycled and hacked thrift store finds all the time. Why not embellish a painting? And if you are going to go through the effort, you might as well make it worthwhile, and not bother adding a tree or quaint woodland cottage. Add a monster. A big one.
