Goodwill towards me

January 14, 2012

I always hear these stories about people finding things at Goodwill that they bought for $3 and with just and a little spray paint, they’ve turned it into a Crate and Barrel knockoff.

My Goodwill usually has old breadmakers and dusty books.

Until today! Look at this mirrored tray I got! The back looks like I’ll be able to pry up the tabs so I can take the metal frame off and spray paint it.


The new living room (whose creation is dependent on good painting weather so… let’s just say April since we’re in Chicago) is going to be black, white, and tan. Wouldn’t this look great in black on a side table holding a lamp or a picture frame and a candle?

Finally. Goodwill victory is mine!


One Nap Thanksgiving Wreath

November 19, 2011


I made this wreath after seeing a similar one on pinterest. My changes – I used different colored burlap, and frayed some burlap for the center of the flower rather than use buttons because those seemed like a lot of work… and I wanted to get this done in one naptime. I’m thinking about using the left over burlap in green and red for a Christmas wreath.
