Today I am posting on Susan's Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch
as well as participating in Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures party.We have been busy hitting garage sales and estate sales to stock up our spaces for the antique shows this summer. While out hunting we came across this little round table. It was blah brown and had a plastic wood grain top. But it was $5.00! I have been hunting for a bedside table for ages. Being thrifty I did not want to buy retail. So with a bit of sanding...I forgot to take a before picture until I had already started painting...
boring became sweet. Some primer and paint can do wonders! How cute is this?
A five dollar night stand and no more books to trip over in the morning. Now, to distress or leave as is, what do you think?
Next, I found a cute enough rocker. Boring brown again.
Not any more. I love black but I think I am going to sand a bit and rub with a little stain and seal for a hand rubbed look.
Last but not least, I love the 70's. These snowy owls will be showing up on my etsy shop this week. I saw another blogger paint owls white lately but I don't remember who. If it is you let me know so I can give credit where it is due. Who? Hoo. OK enough already!
Check out all the thrifty finds and fab changes from this week and say Hi to Rhoda and Susan for me.
Have a thrifty Monday, P.
P.S. I am approaching 200 posts. Time for a give away, don't you agree? I think I will have to reward one or more of my followers for being sweet enough to sign up. Stay tuned.
Extra P.S. I saw the painted owls at Whisper Wood Cottage . She has lots of wonderful ideas!
