Some new thrift store finds

Pin It Now!

Yesterday on my lunch hour I went to a thrift store nearby my work. I found the little cherub vase there. I have so many vases but I thought he was so cute and for only 75 cents how could I say no. I was disappointed that was all I found so when I got home from work I went over to the Goodwill by my house and found this decorative birdcage. Okay so it's not this one but I plan to paint it white and it's going in my bedroom. I'm in the process of collecting things to redo my bedroom. I found a cute little bench but I'm not going to post a picture of that until I finish redoing it because it is so ugly. It is so ugly that when I was standing in line to pay for it people were giving me weird looks. They would look at the bench and then look back up at me. I just wanted to tell everyone that I was going to repaint it white and fabric from the 70s was going to be changed...but I just smiled back at them and didn't say anything. You'll see what I mean when I post the picture. I plan to work on it this weekend so hopefully by Monday I will have the before and after pics.

Great thrift store finds. I really love the birdcage but I do have a thing for them. I'm just itching to get to the thrift store but today I need to be cleaning. Maybe tomorrow!
