Hello, hello there! One of my favorite things to do is hit the Goodwill and thrift stores to scour the shelves for someone else’s junk. I have found some great things there in the past.
So when my blogging friend Kathy from Petticoat junktion asked me if I would like to be a part of her Thrift score makeover series, I said Hellz yeah count me in.
I LOVE Goodwill and the thrift stores. Why go into a store and pick from a bunch of stuff that’s already been found? One of the best parts is the thrill of hunt!
“To earn what you can; spend what you must, give what you should, and save the rest—this is thrift.” ~ J.O. Engleman, 1918
One of my favorite scores in the past was the typewriter table. I thought was a microwave cart. It was very old and I believe I scored it for less than 20.00. That’s just one of the many treasures I have found. Some blogging friends and I teamed up to share a monthly Goodwill find, and our challenge was to make it over.
Now onto the challenge.
First stop: Goodwill of course. Look what I found within two minutes! For a 1.99, and a rooster no less! This baby was coming home with me.
You know I am all about the Rooster, the rooster, the rooster…
The color I chose is called Sunshine Yellow! Well, hello RUST-OLEUM! I shared with you last year my Love for that spray paint. Far greater than any other.
You can see my spray painted mason jar here.
I found this cute mason jar mug at Walmart. I am thinking Spring now. Today, it was 70 degrees here in the Carolina’s and the most beautiful blue sky. The boys were excited to get out and play some ultimate frisbee. Mike and I went to watch for a bit and then I hit Walmart for some odds and ends. This mug jumped in the cart along with these pretty plates from Better Homes and garden collection. They are plastic, but you can’t tell at all and they will be perfect for some outdoor entertaining.
Amazing how a 1.99 purchase and a little spray paint can make you smile. And of course while I was at it the rest of the Kitchen shelving got springified!
I have been thinking about changing out the burlap valances. I just have not found something else I absolutely love in lieu of these. So for now, they stay!
Speaking of staying, if you are not a regular here, I sure would love to see you back again.
