Plant Stand $2.50, Disney Prints and tables my hubby probably will say no I can not have….

It was 1/2 price day at the Goodwill and a mostly 1/2 price day at  the ARC thrift stores….I went to three. My 19 year old daughter went with me, I am training her…..LOL. By the time we were done  (and after mom bought her a ton of stuff) she decided she likes to  thrift and there was all kinds of cool stuff. Along with 1/2 price day, it was 99 cent jean day. A couple was the first in line and piled the shopping cart full with jeans (obviously re-selling them) This cute elderly lady standing near my daughter said “My, they must have a large family” – too cute ! It was handy bringing an assistant with me , I would say – grab that, watch the cart , you go this way – I’ll go the other….Like I said , she is in training…

Plant stand

1/2 price for $2.50 – solid wood – I was ever sooooo happy !

006

Afterwards with a little black paint – a beauty.

019

Minnie Mouse Print and Pooh Prints

She just has no style in browns…..no wonder she was donated !

012

Look at her now in the spot light ! This print is for my work office – I have a few Disney things and have it displayed on my desk and such. This frame and picture was a buck.

043

I spotted these Winnie the Pooh prints because I liked the square frames. I decided I liked the pictures but, they needed updating. 014

Much more grown up in black. I am taking these to work too ! I got them for a couple of bucks each.

Tables I really don’t need

My hubby would tell you that  “We don’t need anymore tables !”

Awwwww, they are sooooo nice………pretty please……..

These next two beauties were so dang cheap – I had to get them. They are in such perfect condition and I might , just might leave them alone….

The end table was $13.99 but…..it was on sale for 1/2 off so it was $6.99

001

The coffee table – with drop leafs….was $15.99 but, it was also on the 1/2 price sale so it was $7.99

010

Cross your fingers he will let me KEEP them…..

Hugs ~ Kammy

Please visit these two fine ladies and the best bloggers in the world – so creative, so inspiring -  I wanna be just like them !!!!! You will see after visiting them….

Wow, to those tables!

~~Carol~~ said...

It always amazes me how everything looks better when it's painted black! Perfect example are those pictures. They look great! I hope your hubby lets you keep those tables. Doesn't he realize how much money you save him on furniture?!!

Jennifer said...

Oh, I love the coffee table. I'll take it if you aren't allowed to keep it! LOL. That's awesome you are training your daughter - I know exactly how handy it is having an assitant. Your prints look really cute with the new black frames!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Great finds and I really like the redos! Sure like that black spray paint - I had to make a paint run to L's today. :)

Linh C. said...

You have some great transformations! I wish my GW had great deals like what you found.

Darlene said...

I love that little plant stand now painted black....great re-do.

Beth said...

I'm not a huge cartoon character fan but the black frame transformation is truly remarkable :). Sooooo much better and grown-up in black! I'm a table junky too and have 3 in my basement waiting for some TLC. Hope your hubby let's you keep them!

salmagundi said...

What a difference the black makes on the pictures. I need to come check out the thrift stores in your part of the state. Those tables are nice, especially at that price. Sally

Lori E said...

Can't go wrong at those prices. Oh the tables are staying. Of course they are. Just put them in another room for a while and he won't even notice when they edge their way into the main rooms.

Shelia said...

Oh, Kammy! You hit the jackpot! I love that little plant stand you painted black! The coffee and end tables are great and what a bargain! Waaaa! I wanna come shop with you! No one around here has 1/2 off sales!
Be a sweetie,
shelia :)

Suzanne in TX said...

I have been training my kids all their lives! And those last tables--store them, if you don't have great places for them yet. With a 19 y/o, you'll be needing extra furniture one of these days...Thanks for sharing and come over and visit anytime...

Barb said...

ellen b said...

Wow Kammy! You really did great. I love the new "black" look. I have to remember that.

Marla said...

Kammy you found some great stuff. I love the tables and wow at 1/2 price you can't go wrong. I wish our Goodwill had half off days. Marla

Sandy said...

Kammy,
As usual great finds and you just gotta love that black paint. Love those tables.
Sandy

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

WOW!!! Those prices are great, and I can't believe the makeover on the prints. Much better. :) I've gotten used to thrifting with the kiddos out of necessity. My husband is always working, so he's not home to stay with them on Sat. mornings so I can yard sale. :) Thanks so much for the visit! :)

Jane said...

Great finds this weekend. Black paint does wonders to almost anything. The transformation on the plant stand was great but the difference between the "before" Minnie and the "after" Minnie was incredible. The black frame and mat made all the difference. You not only have a great eye for finding great finds but you definitely have the talent to transform these finds as well. Great job. (OK - I just used the word "great" five times in this comment, guess I need a thesaurus!)

Linda said...

Your tables are unbelievable! Way to go, Kammy! Linda

Cheap&Sweet said...

I am so glad I'm not the only one who thinks everything looks better with black paint! great finds!

Joyce said...

I can't believe the prices and how good a job you do to bring it all back to life.

Kimberly said...

Pam @ This Humble House said...

Well I am super jealous of your Goodwill! Ours just doesn't have good stuff like that, or else I am always a day late!

Kammy, I hope you get to keep your treasures!!!! Thanks for stopping by to see my friends little trailer. I loved the black paint job on your table. I just got back from Colorado (from a funeral) & it was the greenest I have seen it in years. I know you have had a lot of rain but, wow how beautiful it was. Have a great week.

Audra said...

Kammy, thanks for stopping by my blog. I adore the thrifty tables, what a score. Keeping my digits crossed that the hubs will see the beauty in them and grant them asylum. I have the same affliction with tables, I see one and want it, even if I really don't need it or have room. A flat space is rarely clear in my home!

Willow said...

Hey if he won't let you keep the tables I will take them. HA! HA! You got great deals and love how you redid them.

Willow

Nissa said...

Florida Sue said...

Look at that plant stand! You transformed it something special. I really love it. I need you to come to Florida and give me spray paint lessons! Have you been to Walt Disney World here? Let me know if you come, because I love the characters too and I am only about 40 minutes away from Mouseland. I would love to meet up with you someday and see that lovely smiling face in person.
