Altered 99 Cent Goodwill Find....

Hi Girls,

I love finding creative uses for those inexpensive and sometimes odd thrift store finds.

A case in point being this odd looking wood piece that I recently found at the Goodwill store for just 99 cents. I'm not 100% certain as to what it is, but it looks like it may be a recipe card holder with grooves along the inside edges of the spools to hold the cards.  As soon as I saw it, I knew exactly how I would put it to use..

So after bringing it home and giving it a few coats of pale pink craft paint, I modgepodged on some torn up bits of some pretty new vintage looking scrapbook paper that I found recently...

And now I have another cute altered find to hold my growing collection of washi/craft tapes..

So like I've said before, don't forget to keep your eyes open at the thrift stores for those unusual items that you can alter to suit your style and find a functional use for.  You may just be surprised at what you find.
