A couple of Goodwill redos and a Fall Centerpiece...

I have a another Goodwill redo to show you as well as a fall centerpiece.




Remember this not so pretty jewelry box?





Well I gave it a couple of coats of heirloom white spray paint, and distressed it alot, more than I usually do, but I really like how it turned out. I am not so sure about the toile paper yet. I do love me some toile but I don't feel like it pops enough as well as go with the knobs and I love the little knobs on this. We shall see, I may change the paper.



Gotta love the pretty plastic mini blind background.




Remember this goodwill basket from quite awhile ago? Well I showed you that I spray painted it with glossy black....




I added some fall berry garland, and a bag of pumpkins that I got at the grocery store for $4.99. Does it look to messy?




What do you think? I hated it at first but I am really starting to like it. It looks nice on the dresser I have in my dining room. I will show you it altogether later. When I have it all prettied up.




Remember this little candle holder thingy?




Well I spray painted it white, then I took an old blue melamine plate that had cracked, sprayed it the heirloom white and glued it on top, then added a pumpkin and one of the glass domes I picked up at Goodwill the other day. Yes? No? Again with the pretty plastic blind backdrop.



Well that's it for now. Remember the gift bag I turned into wall art last week? Well come back later this week and I will show you paper plates turned art. Trust me it's cute.


Sometime this week, I am going to show you the front of my house, I need help with my door and I am hoping you will all give me some ideas, your the greatest for decorating advice! But be warned, my house is hideous on the outside, we have huge ugly flowerbeds out front that are falling down, and they are empty, we have the ugliest cement front steps with hideous wood railing, and we don't have grass. I have never showed you my house but our house was a house, then a salon or shop or something, and now a house again. Well when it was a salon they added blacktop out front and back and yep it's still here. Our house seriously looks like no one lives here. Our neighbors on each side both have lovely homes and yards and then there is ours. But I am braving it and hoping you all can help me with a few quick fixes to spruce it up! And with all that said, I do love our house and it has a pretty stone front that I like.





This week I am participating in Metamorphosis Monday over at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch!! Click the logo above and Go over and check out everyone's projects this week!! Be Prepared to be inspired!

Have a Great Night!!!
