the last thing i need is another project. seriously.
with that being said, i was at my local goodwill and picked up several new projects. here’s what i got…
first up, two candle sticks. the top section and bottom section are metal but the middle portion is plastic. which, you can’t really tell unless you pick them up. i’m thinking about silver leafing them just to freshen them up. though they are fine in their current state.
my favorite part about them is this little hook towards the top! i already have several ideas on what to hang there … especially for christmas! these were $1 a piece.
two vintage pillowcases. i’ve been on a vintage sheet kick lately. i’m have several quilts i want to make and have some christmas ideas that involve vintage sheets. $1 for the pair.
now i just need to buy some spare time. anyone know where i can get some?
i’m probably as shocked as you are about this next purchase. i bought an afghan. i’m typically not a fan of this style of blanket, but this one spoke to me. and the price was right … under $3!!
it’s in great condition and was super clean. i’m thinking about redoing one of my guest rooms in purple. and i think the pop of royal blue will look just amazing!
i also got this ceramic leaf with the thoughts of painting it white and using it as a candy dish of some sort. maybe evening hanging it on the wall? love the shape and style, just not the color. it was $1 too.
and last but not least, these two lamps. $2.50 a piece. they need some funky shades and a good paint job. but i love their form and style. and they are the perfect size for a little desk lamp. i’m thinking about creating lampshades like these.
great finds, right?
so, i’ve been waiting to host a weekly linkup party. and i thought it would be fun to call it ‘thrifty thursdays’. you could share your finds, ideas, and/or projects created from your thrift store purchases. the weekly posts would then become a great resource to inspire future projects.
what do you think? would you participate? we’ll give it a try next week and see how it goes!
