I’ve been finding a lot of fun little treasures at GW lately.
Last week I shared the buffet that I got at Goodwill for $55.00. I painted it and glazed it, and it turned out fabulous. I got the most comments EVER on that post! Thanks for all of your positive encouragement! If you missed it, you can check it out here.
I found another little table at GW for $8.00. It’s a side table with magazine/book holders. It was already painted white, but needed a fresh coat.
Of course I did the same treatment on it, that I did on the buffet. I painted it white with Valspar paint, sanded down the edges and then applied Valspar Mocha glaze.
I thought it turned out pretty good.
Now I need to find a place for it.
I could put it in the guest house bathroom….
Or under the window in the guest house…
Sorry the picture quality is bad in the last one. I took it at night. And, I wasn’t very creative with my accessories. I was just trying to throw things on there to take a picture. I’ll do better, I promise. :)
Where do you like it best? I would love to hear your opinion!
For those of you who follow me, you know that I am having a big family get together at my house in three weeks! I am working hard to get some things done around the house that I have been putting off.
This week, I will be sharing some posts about the changes we are making.
1) I finally found a paint color that I like for the kitchen and den.
2) We’ve moved our ceiling fan. (Lots of re-wiring!)
3) And our corner hutch has almost finished it’s transformation into “not a corner” hutch. My husband has cut the back off and is going to replace it with beadboard. Then I will start painting it.
I’ll share the details on how we did it this week, and I will post the finished product next Met Monday!
Now, I still have to buy or make curtains for the kitchen, slipcover a couch, and put up black shelves in the kitchen in the next 3 weeks!
Whew! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can….
Lastly…I still have two more weeks of my “Christmas in July” giveaways!
I am giving away a personalized Gingerbread Family Ornament.
