At this moment I should be either bathing dogs, cleaning the basement, emptying some boxes I have stacked in my living room, or cleaning something in preparation for my parents arrival this Wednesday. But instead I'm gonna blog! I had a few compliments today regarding my blog and it's made me want to share something! I've decided to show you a few things I did in my living room. Lots of pictures in this one. I hope you don't mind. I doubt you will.
About three weeks ago I made a run to my local Goodwill and then JoAnns. I love turning other peoples junk into my own treasure. You can find some cool stuff at thrift stores if you use your imagination and think outside the box. Oh, and if you're not afraid to use paint! I spent about $30 at Goodwill and $17 at JoAnns (clearance and sale items only at JoAnns). A couple of days after that I invited my neighbor and her toddler to Arc Thrift Store with me and my monkeys. We had a great time going through the aisles and aisles and aisles of outdated decor. The key is to go through twice. You always miss something the first time. In fact, I missed half of my items the first time. And probably could have gotten more if I'd gone through again! But I left with $30 worth of gooooood stuff. Here's what I got in my two trips....
There are a couple of things I like about this. The textures from the twine, burlap, and peas, and the colors from the twine, burlap, and peas. They add so much to the already cool shape of the jug. Love it! Okay, so I'll try to wrap this up. I wanted to put the rest of my super cool thrifty finds on my empty arch.
Awaiting Your Invitation To Go Thrifting,
