I go to the local thrift store on a weekly basis, but I must say that it has been slim pickens lately! I found a few things a couple weeks ago and I thought I would share those with you today. Yep, I totally forgot to share them when I bought them. This mind of mine just ain’t like it use to be (lol). Well, let’s take a look at my recent thrift store finds.
I found these candle holders and thought they would look great re-finished. I plan on putting them on my farm table when they are complete. So, stay tuned to pictures of them once they are painted and re-finished. I am thinking barn red…..
I also found this light and thought that it would look great in my family room. Of course I WON’T be keeping it royal blue, but I thought it would look great painted a nice prim color such as black and then stencil something on it such as an old date. I grabbed it thinking that it looked like an old milk can, but when I got it home….. I realized that it wasn’t. (lol) So, I will just go with my original plans and paint it and stencil it like it was an old milk can. What do you think? Do you think it would look nice re-finished that way or do you think I should stencil a star on it instead? Go ahead and give me your honest opinion. I am also planning on getting a new lamp shade so don’t think for a minute that I will be keeping it or trying to salvage it. I am positive that there is no hope for that shade.
Hmmm, isn’t this a pretty picture? Ah, yes I love old barn wood and I was lucky enough to get some from my FIL. I plan on making an old coop if I can ever get the wood cut. My FIL cut some of his wood, but he burnt up his blades so I am outta luck with someone trying to cut my wood. Anyway, I thought I would share a picture of the wood that I am going to be using. Neat – huh? I can hardly wait to get it made, but I just need to wait on my FIL to get a new blade. Gotta love oak. Stay Tuned for pictures of the coop.
Until Next Time……..
