Once again I spent some time at the local thrift stores…I filled my cart and got some really great stuff -that went from Drab to Fab. All in one afternoon. I found this shelf at the GW, it was $4.99.
Look I didn’t use black spray paint ! Besides – Home Depot was out of it cuz, I bought it all….LOL ! All the “white” items are for my daughters bedroom – we are in the process of re-decorating…
Ugly little gold lamps - $4.99 at the GW. I really loved the beading and knew I had to have them. See all the detail ?
Lamp shades at the GW 25 cents each ! I am putting these on my daughter’s dresser.
I covered the lampshades in fabric I already had. My daughter (she is fourteen) loves purple and lime green.
Topped off by a couple of ribbons. So easy. I used hot glue and fray check so the ribbon wouldn’t un-ravel after time.
I loved this little shelf – it has a plate holder – I thought it would be perfect for a small tea cup collection… I bought it for $1.50 !
I broke out my black spray paint. I later found more black spray paint at Wal-Mart..bought 6 more cans…I am sooooo bad ! My hubby asked if I was buying it by the case ? Duh, they don’t sell it by the case….
This frame I bought for a buck. I loved that it was oval and I love the scrolly things. It is plastic but, who cares ?
Here is a close up to the new chalk board frame. I will look fab in my daughter’s room.
This chair was $4.99 and solid wood. I think it is an old school chair. They just don’t make them like this anymore !
See it in black ? I am going to make a chair pad – that will be in a later post…I am just wiped from smelling paint fumes all afternoon !!!
Grand total including paint about $25..00 - yes twenty five bucks !
