Ok peeps- I apologize. This last week has been crazy and I have been slackin off in the blog world. I have TONS to blog about- but today I will start with something I did today! I was really wanting to get over to D.I. (if some of you dont know, its like a goodwill) and sort through some stuff so I could re-do things and then sell them. Hopefully I can sell them to help us pay for our vacations!
I also decorated a bit for spring/Easter today. I was so happy to get out the spring blocks I made last year!
I made this last year too- the flowers are from toilet paper rolls!
Ok, on to what I found at D.I. keep in mind, I will be selling most of this stuff AFTER I finish it, so if you want it, claim it!
This 'C' is super cute and doesn't need much fixing, just needs a new ribbon. I love it. I think I will attach tulle instead of ribbon.
This needs a bit of work. It is missing two knobs, which I will actually cover with a flower unless I can find knobs the same size, and then the corners need to be glued together tighter. I also am adding chicken wire to the back to make this a jewelry holder.
This needs work. I will re-paint the frame, and take out the cork board and cover it with fabric. Then I will add criss crossing ribbons so you can stick pics in or something.
This is a candle holder. The top is beadboard. (under the black metal top thing). It just needs some cleaning.
This hangs on the wall like so, and needs to be painted. This would be a cute towel holder and you could put something on top.
I love this wreath. I can't believe I found it. It's super heavy. I like the colors- perfect for halloween, BUT, the paint was chipping off everywhere, so I am going to spray paint this, if I can and see if I can't fix it.
I love this basket. I am painting this white.
Recipe card holder. I LOVE this! But I don't love the color or polka dots. I am painting this black and distressing it.
This needs to be re-painted. I will probably paint it black.
I love this as well. This would hold a couple of cute flower planters and could be set on the porch. I think I will keep this one.. not sure what color I should paint it, any suggestions?
I will put scrapbook paper on this one, not sure what colors yet.
I am keeping this for myself. :) It's a beautiful metal frame, and I am painting it white.
I bought this at the dollar store. I thought it was kinda cute. The pot is pink. Bad pic and lighting though, sorry.
This is the primer I used on my projects today. I think it was $3.49 at Home Depot.
I am in the process of painting them!
I may have ruined this one... any ideas how to fix it? It only has the primer on it, hopefully just a few coats of paint and it will be ok.
SOOO glad I went thrift shopping today. I get a thrill out of it! I love it so much. :) Hope you all enjoyed!
