My husband is telling me ALL the time that I need to go back to work. I ask him why and he says "Well, you are changing everything, painting everything and you always want to find items at the Goodwill store to re-do." I told him that he should be happy that I stay busy, but he just shakes his head. I guess they don't understand a woman and their addictions (lol).
Well, I went to the Goodwill store today and took care of my addiction. WOW, I was so excited. I mean there was tons of stuff I could choose from, but with me going to visit Shawn's cousin this weekend.....I thought I would save some money to see what I could find at her thrift stores. If anyone was looking at me while I was shopping today, they probably thought that I was some crazy woman. I was snatching up all of the wood stuff and putting it into my cart so I could figure out what I wanted. I guess I didn't want anyone to come along and snatch something while I was trying to figure out what I wanted. The silly thing is that there was no one around except a bunch of men looking at socks and undies (lol). I am just not sure I would want to buy my undies at the Goodwill store, but hey if that is what floats their boat then I say go ahead since I am hogging up all the wood items. (lol)
So, I found this hideous looking cutting board that has some awful looking flowers on it. It was made in Yugoslavia and I must say that once I give it a makeover..... it will be quite nice!! I found some little wooden bowls, but when I was walking out to the car with my bag in one hand and Cameron in the other, my stuff went through my bag and one of my bowls broke. Good thing it was on 30 cents. Anyway, they are just little wooden bowls, but they would look cute with a little something in it......just not sure what. Oh, I also found this little shelf that someone made. I really like it, but the dark stain just isn't me so I will have to sand it off and re-do it. I thought it would either look cute on the counter or hung up somewhere. Hmm, the possibilities are endless.
I found some other items, but had no clue what I would do with them or where I would put them. There was one shelf that I really liked, but it looked like it had a billion coats of paint on it and I thought it would be ALOT of work. I also found this long coffee table which I thought had ALOT of potential, but I thought my husband would definitely freak out on me and I had no clue where I would put it. You could tell it was old, heavy and it was only $6.99. I thought that was a steal. I knew I could really give it a total re-haul, but it would be alot of work and since I sand everything by hand....... ah, that would take me forever!!
Anyway, here are some pictures of the items that I bought today. Don't you think they have alot of potential? I am especially excited over the cutting board and that little wooden shelf.
