My sister-in-law, Jen recently bought a chair and turned it into a candy apple red delight and it made me smile. http://kreatid.blogspot.com/2010/07/candy-apple-red.html
Now if that doesn't inspire to get out there and dig thru stuff at Goodwill - I don't know what will!
Here are some of my latest findings.
Here is a ceramic peacock. I didn't know I wanted or needed a ceramic peacock until I locked eyes with this little guy. And then I knew. I knew that inside my heart was a ceramic peacock shaped hole.
Luckily, it has been filled.
Sometimes I want to take a sharpie to him and do this....
I just think it would give him some flare. As if he needs any.
Moving on from ceramic peacocks...here is my find from today. $1.50. I must say I was pretty stoked about this. Not sure what to do with it. It could hold throw blankets or I could put it on our sun porch with some plants? Regardless, I knew I wanted it.
Westside Melons. Somewhere, a farmer who is in a gang is wondering what happened to his melon crate. Westsiiiide. It's so gangsta. I am just waiting for Josh to make an innapropriate joke about melons. It's there somewhere.
And here's this little gem. A mirror with a super cute frame that is calling out for some spray paint. But what color? And where? So many questions. Until they are answered my mirror will sit in my guestroom reflecting the mess that is my guest room. Can you see it? That's my wedding dress draped over a bulletin board. So sad.
And those are my goodwill finds for the month- and I didn't even upload the photo of the legit Diane Von Furstenberg purse I got for $3. I know. I felt like the guy who buys a painting at a garage sale and there is a Monet behind it. It's not that extreme - but I was indeed excited.
