This week I did some mad thrifting, sewing, transforming, and even a bit of cooking. Why? I have no clue. Well, part of it was Mr. M was off for a few days and I had to look busy. (Don’t tell him that when he isn’t here, I read blogs and eat bon bons all day.)
Anywho, on with the find-a-roonies. In case you missed it, I found these freebies on Sunday.
Then we took a trip in the town and picked up ……
A pair of frames for $2. The pictures will go and the frames are already silver. (stay tuned for after pictures)
This was a whopping $1 and is HEAVY! I also picked up a few things that weren’t really worth taking pictures of right now, like a bag of shells, a silver platter, and Mr. M picked up a set of killer golf clubs for $25 with the bag. (I checked, just a wedge goes for $25 on Ebay)
Okay, I am going to burst. I have to show you how cool the frames turned out! That frame with the ugly castle painting and the two smaller ones that I got for $2 have already turned into this……(insert drum roll here)
I took the frame apart, layer by layer, and sprayed the moldings black, silver and black. Then I added the silver frames and the candle thingie. Easy Peasy.
I just have to figure out what I want to put in the smaller frames. That red fabric is temporary, I will probably paint something to throw in there, but I think that for a whopping $2 this is STELLAR. Of course, that is just my opinion!
Thank you to all of the great hosts and make sure you check out all of the great posts!
