First I give you my dresser mirror. After having nothing there for weeks, and not having any luck finding anything at the thrift stores, and just not sure what to do; I finally gave in and just took my old mirror apart and painted it and then leaned it on the dresser. I sorta lurve it a lot.
Lovity love love!
Just a closeup shot of some of the glazing detail.
Alright, moving on. As you know, Jere was all up in arms about not having a lamp of his own. So, imagine my delight when I meandered into Goodwill one morning on a super whim and found him a lamp. It was sitting by itself up front with no price on it. After looking around the store and finding nothing, I gravitated back to that lamp. There was no price on it. I asked the guy if he just wanted to give it to me for $1.00 since it WAS dollar day. He said he couldn't do that, but that generally he prices lamps like that for 4.99. NOT true. Every lamp in that place is at least 9.99. BUT, i was not gonna fight him on it. So, for $4.99 I got the lamp, shade AND lightbulb. AWESOME!
Finally. Remember my boredom post a couple back? Stuck in a room for 2 hours with nothing to do? Remember how I wandered over to the Goodwill and it was a bust. Well.....it wasn't a complete bust. There were two berry wreaths hanging forlornly on the corner of a rack. They were really ugly, but they caught my eye. For $3.99 I picked up two of them not sure what I was gonna do, but something was percolating in my head.
Soooo, I took a little spray paint to it. And some craft paint and a little ribbon.
There she is, all white and nerdy. I mean PURDY!
Why yes, I DID let my 3 year old help paint. She was in HEAVEN and thought she was So, SO important for getting to help me. I used metallic silver craft paint and then a FEW little bops of the green/blue color from my nightstand and mirror (that is what Maggie painted).
And what we got here is.....
Won't lie. It makes my heart happy. I got a piece for my wall for a grand total of $5.00. Five bucks people. Ok fine, maybe closer to SIX. And with that, my room is COMPLETE!
But, since this is too long as it is. I shall save the final pics for tomorrow. Look for them. Listen....the five people that ever actually visit me in person don't care about my room anymore. I need to show SOMEONE. So, just humor me. Mmmk? MmmmmK!
Plus, I'm SUPER excited to show you my kitchen table re-do next week.
