Hello dear friends! I had hoped to have a new project finished to share today, but with hurricane Michael heading our way, I spent Thursday taking down pretty much every Halloween decoration I had outside, and securing our outdoor furniture, trampoline, etc. I am so glad I took the time to do all that though because we got some serious winds Thursday night, gusting up to 75 mph at times. We are so fortunate that our area sustained very little damage as compared to many others who weren’t so lucky. My heart goes out to those that lost everything.
Then I wanted to get all of my Halloween goodies back out so I decided to do that instead of finishing today’s project. Instead, I am pulling out an old favorite from a couple years ago.
This is easily the best deal I ever got at a thrift store! This table was in pretty sorry shape but it was only 99¢:
Yep less than a dollar! Clearly the person who priced it thought it wasn’t worth much.
I had to ask the salesperson if it was really only 99¢?? I thought surely they meant $9.99, but nope, so of course I had to bring it home.
I’m glad I did because it turned into a real cutie:
The top was in serious bad shape:
The person who priced it was obviously not aware that paint has magical powers.
I used Gray Morning by Behr (mixed about 1/2 with Pure White) in my go-to DIY chalk paint recipe on this piece. I love this pretty blue.
I also decided to add handles to the top:
These are one of my favorites from Hobby Lobby.
I also added these wheels that I had removed from an antique dresser:
It looks more like a little cart now. This would be perfect in a bathroom to hold fresh fluffy towels.
I also found these hydrangeas while thrifting. Aren’t they really good fakes?
They came with these green ones in this basket:
You just never know what you’ll find! I love hydrangeas, so for $9.98, I scooped them up. Funny that I paid ten times more for the flowers than I did for the table!
I hope you enjoyed seeing what this sad table became, maybe for the second time!
I also found this lamp on the same trip as the table:
You can see what I did with that HERE if you missed it! One of my sweet readers actually bought it since it reminded her of a lamp from her childhood.
I’ll be back on Thursday with this pretty bread box:
UPDATE: See how this cutie looks now HERE!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
