Thrift Store Treasure Tuesday
I was looking for a fun lamp for Girly Girl #1's 4H Project 'Bedroom Make-over' - check out the before and after of this gem I found stuck up on a shelf at a local thrift store. (ignore the date on the pics)
The Lamp was $2.99. I removed the shade & globe. Then used painters tape to keep the black metal parts un-touched & put the cord in a baggie. I used a can of Krylon Spray Primer on the lamp and shade. Krylon Metallic Silver spray paint on the base/top & Krylon Rich Plum on the outside & inside of the shade.
All for about 8.50 we ended up with a super cute girly lamp!!
These cute little Love Birds Planters were at a new Thrift Store I came across called 'Penny Pinchers'
They were too adorable to pass up and I knew with a little bit of help they would make great pencil/treasure holders during our 2 Girly Girl Room Makeovers - Coming Summer 2011.
What a difference a coat of paint & glitter spray paint can make on old planters & what fun we'll have finding treasures to put in them!
I also found this fantastic dish for $.25! I'm not sure what to do with it, but for $.25 I couldn't resist! If you have a suggestion I'd love to hear it!
That's all for Thrift Store Treasure Tuesday!
