It's been awhile since I have went to Goodwill or any Garage sales, so a few weeks ago we stopped in at Goodwill and of course I couldn't leave empty handed. I saved the best find for last so keep reading :) I found the above pillow for $1.99, it always makes me a little nervous buying pillows but I couldn't pass up the toile.
I found this big frame for .99 and have already started revamping it, Can't wait to show you!!
See, already working on it....
The porch post thingys were .49 each, and the books .99 for both. I couldn't pass up the finial things as I know I will come up with something for them.
Also got the little wooden frame for .99
I had to get the big chunky candle holder for 2.99 as I have it's twin. The little mirrors were .49 each.
The bowl filler stuff was marked down to 2.99, this will be great for fall :)
Had to share these, I got 20 tubs of pampers wipes with coupons for .17 a tub!!! I love getting deals on these as we go through them like crazy.
My favorite find is this little table. Actually it's not my find, my sweet husband knows how I love my Goodwill junk and was in the area one day and stopped in and bought me this. It was $3!!! I love picturing him in Goodwill ( totally not his thing ) picking out some sad little piece for me to redo. It's great. He's great.
As you can see, she was in pretty bad shape.
Not anymore....This was actually a pretty eaasy makeover. I did it all while watching the Bears play their first preseason game, Sadly they lost. :( I wanted pretty aqua color so I mixed some blue I had with some antique white paint until I got the color I wanted. These pictures are awful, I took them at night and it doesn't go so well up against my shiny red walls.
I used a little minwax stain after some sanding. I'm not so good at that technique but all in all I think it turned out great. One of my favorite makeovers.
I love it A Lot. I love this blue.
It's got a little opening on the side to store crap even.
So how did I do? How did hubby do with his find? You like?
I'm linking up with Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality for her Thrifty Treasures party.
