Happy Tuesday to you all! It is another gray day here. Makes me want to curl up under a blanket and watch and movie. But….there is no time for that. Things to do. But I can dream can’t I? I have been in the mood to watch Gone With The Wind for SO long…maybe this weekend?!
I have been busy with some Goodwill Makeovers. I intended to do a couple but once I got started I just kept on going. Before I knew lots of things had a black basecoat then a topcoat, then I was sanding and staining! I haven’t found places for all of it yet. But a couple of the things I wanted to get done in time for Christmas decorating.
So here is what I accomplished.
This is an old chair that I got at an antique store for $9.00 a long time ago.
This chair is just waiting for a Santa or a Snowman to sit in it…or maybe a little tree?…so many options! Anyway…it is still drying so I have time to think about it!
Remember the mirror I got at Goodwill?
Here it is after. I will be flipping it around and making the top the bottom and the bottom the top. Because I like the way the finish came out better on one end than the other. But here it is hung up “as is”~
I got this spoon rack for a $1.99!
I got some small bowls for 99 cents each. Here they are before…shiny salad bowls~
Here they are after~
Here is a little cutting board….$1.99.
Here is a close up~
I have a couple more makeovers finished. But I will save those until next time! I got the glass canisters with wooden lids done, the square Kleenex box and I also painted my wooden candle holder that I got at the Prim Open House.
Here are some prim napkins that I found at Target! I just love them and thought I would share them with you. I think they are great for Thanksgiving~
Oh..one more thing! I got these bowls at Good will. The large one was marked $7.99 and the small one was marked $3.99. When I got up to pay the lady said “I am just going to give you the set for the $3.99 price”! To that I say Woo Hoo!! I am sure she thought… “If you want to buy these “cute” bowls more power to you”!
Here is what was painted on them~
Now as much as I “loved” the munchies on these bowls…the design HAD to go! Wink Wink!
Here they are After~
Much better don’t you think? Back to their original beauty! FYI for those of you who don’t know…nail polish remover takes the paint right off of crocks or crock bowls like these! I don’t know if it makes a difference but I have “Salon Strength” remover, you can buy that pretty much anywhere. I got mine at Walgreens.
Here is the bottom of the 10” bowl~
And the bottom of the 6” bowl~
Roseville, Ohio U.S.A. Not bad for $3.99!
I hope you all have a wonderful day! In the time I wrote this blog…the sun is now shining! :) Might just be a great day for a walk outside. To enjoy the last sights, sounds and smells of Fall.
Take care, until next time.
