I found this blue oops paint at Lowes for $2.50 and it was the perfect color to go under the crackle finish. What a deal!! Look at that lovely carpet...Yuck!!
Then I applied the crackle and the top coat. I was looking for a rustic cabin look to go with the "theme" of the camper. I think it works! Just need a little gel stain and polyurethane on it now. I think the counter tops really came out nice now that they are done.
On now to my thrifty treasures I found at Goodwill! I got the wicker basket above for $2 and I am using it for a trash can.
I found this stand and three containers for $4. I think I am going to paint them and use them for herb planters in my kitchen!
Not exactly sure what this is but I was thinking of using it as a stand for my fruit bowl. It was a $1
There was something about this lamp that was calling my name. I have no clue why or how I am going to make it look better. I just had to have it for the cabinet that I just completed in the dining room. I know, it is different!!
Doesn't it look good here on the cabinet in the dining room??? I like it, alot!! Any ideas on how I can "enhance" her good looks??? You are all probably thinking I am nuts!!
My mother in law was going to give this to Salvation Army so I grabbed it! I just threw some lemons and limes in it to see how it will look! FREE!!!These were some Wal-Mart and Lowes clearance bargains!
Napkins, 2 per pack that I am going to sew together to make pillows for the camper. Two pillows for a total of $4!!!! Also a half circle flower foam that some little kid must have smashed hundreds of finger dips into it!! I figured for .75 it would work in the thrift item I got a while back...
See, perfect fit!! See all the finger dimples!! I want to make one of those boxwood ball topiary like thingy!!! Okay, quit laughing!
I painted this vase thing as it used to look like this!! Kind of a dirty gold color. I think it turned out pretty good!This is how I think the good Lord works. I wanted a new cup and soap dispenser for the camper in a cabin theme but I refused to pay $15 + shipping for each one. So I decided to just keep waiting and shopping around. Well, look what I found at Lowes on the clearance rack....for $2.50!! No soap dispenser but I found it in an online store and a coupon for free shipping for $16.95 so in total I only spent $19.45 instead of $30+! Sorry, I get excited about those bargains and when I feel the Lord is blessing me for waiting.
