Last week I went for a quick look see at my favourite thrift stores. I didn’t have a whole lot of time but I wanted to make sure I gave the places a good once over. What do you know I found some nice stuff. I took home this lamp base and a wool blanket. I’m collecting wool blankets with great colours and design to use for future projects.
I’m so excited that the weather here in Holland is getting better (all be it very slowly). This means that I can start work on all of the projects waiting for me to tackle them with some sandpaper and paint. My tiny shed/storage space is full to the brim and in need of some sorting out. I do most of my painting outside because there is no space in the said shed so painting in winter is definitely out for me.
To start me out good on my refinishing projects I went and spend some of my birthday money on this baby that I wanted for a while. I love it when I can get stuff I want on sale:). I waited long enough until a good deal came along.
I came across these beauties and snapped a picture using my phone. So sorry for the lack of quality there. I have been thinking of incorporating lockers into RJ’s new big boy room. This one had the perfect colour and rusty bits. But the space inside was very limited. I’m still thinking about this one I’m not sure I made the right call this time not taking it with me.
And then there was this gorgeous cabinet. Ahhhh I think I might have heard some harp music and angels singing when I spotted this. I was already making plans for the new look I would give it. I was thinking white or light grey paint on the outside and some great wallpaper or snazzy colour on the inside. Well I had to snap out of that dream quick there was no way I could stash this baby anywhere in or around my house. It would not have fitted in our very compact car either but that could be resolved with the delivery service the store offers.
Well now I’m good and ready to start tackling some of the projects on my to do list for this spring and summer season.
What are you guys up to? Any projects big or small you would like to share? Made any fantastic thrifty finds lately? I would love to hear from you.
Till next time.
