|It has been sooo much fun going to thrift stores, garage sales, and Goodwill and spotting things that would go perfect in her new room!|
|This is a current eye sore right now... we have to find replacement screws for the dresser hardware...ignore that..lol. I got some hat boxes for 99 cents each at GW. The mirror was a Big Lots find for $20.|
|Got this down-filled pillow at a garage sale for ...$2! It is an expensive pillow...embossed velvet too!|
|Another garage sale find...$2!!! Whooo hoo. I almost bolted out of the car when I saw this. I almost caved and paid full price for one of these things....glad I had patience!|
|We wanted to spruce up this lamp shade and saw these cool vintage chandy crystals at an antique store for 50 cents each. I grabbed them and just poked them through the lamp shade. They look great with the light shining through.|
|Again...I almost died when I saw these two plates lying on a shelf at GW. 99 cents each!! I had the plate hangers. These are my favorite and one of the first finds for this room!|
|I got this at GW and have not figured out what to do with it yet. It was $1.99. It is very heavy metal base. I was thinking of making some kind of canvas sign to hang from it. Any suggestions would be great?!!|
|Found these candle holders at Big Lots for $7.00 for two. Battery operated candles are perfect for the ambiance. They flicker and are real wax that smells like vanilla. You can pick them up at Walmart for around $3 each!|
|A GW find....this vintage mirror. I decided to leave it "as is" because I loved the vintage brass feel. I also picked up this ring holder for 99 cents.|
I also wanted t
o gripe to tell you about the paint and furniture. My daughter picked out the paint from Lowes. It is called "Posh Red". This paint looks great on the walls, but was such a pain to paint with. It looks like blood and gets everywhere! We had red paint on us, all over the drop cloth, on lots of damp cloths that we cleaned up our messes with..ugh! It took about 3 coats and that was WITH primer before. I will never paint with red again. We also added a chair rail and was going to put up bead board, but it was not in our budget. My solution was to just paint it white until we had the funds to add it. This worked out well. We still have to paint and fill the chair rail.
Also, the dressers were a garage sale find from many years ago ($40 for all three pieces) and was painted antique white. It seriously needs to be repainted, but that is for another day.
Thanks for stopping by and please leave me comments and suggestions!
