What Five Dollars Will Get You.....

Hey there girls...

Would you like to see what I scored at my local Goodwill stores for just five dollars total?

My find from the first Goodwill store on Tuesday was this shabby chic style picture frame that was just $1.99 and has the appearance of being made with pieces of vintage wallpaper, but its actually just painted. 


It required a bit of a makeover to get it just the way I wanted it.  The inside and outside edges of the frame and  the grooves on the front of the frame were an icky blackish/brown color.  Totally not my taste, so I used a bit of vanilla colored craft paint to make it look the way I wanted.  So much better with very little effort on my part.

My second Goodwill store find that I found this morning was this cute Shabby Chic style lined wicker basket...


This was just $2.99.  I believe it is one of the older Simply Shabby Chic home decor items from Target.  I have a couple similar baskets in larger sizes.  I love the smaller size of this one.  I'll be using this in my craft room to help keep things organized (if that's even possible)...


Well that's what I've found at my local Goodwill stores. Have you found anything great lately while you've been out thrifting?

Sweet finds.

I haven't had a whole lot of luck lately finding uniques, but still finding supply stashes, which I'll never complain about!
