I have been trying to make a trip to Goodwill once a week since the first of the year. I am still learning to see things and imagine them transformed with spray paint, etc. so the first few trips were not very profitable as I wasn’t sure what I was looking for. I have found quite a few glass cylinders to add to my collections so I can make Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick’s dining room centerpiece.
But I am slowly learning to imagine a finished product and found some great things this week! (Our Goodwill store seems to have much higher prices than I see on other decor blogs – I NEVER see things for $0.25 at our Goodwill! So my prices might be higher than what you would be able to find in our area.)
a rectangle mirror – $3.93
(thinking of making a miniature version of the mirror centerpiece to go on my coffee table)
a picture frame - $1.91
a glass vase/cylinder for $3.73
(It is Princess House, a brand of crystal I collect. New it was probably sold in a pair for $39.99 - $49.99)
and a crystal lamp - $9.81
(The sad thing is that I saw another lamp this exact same design there in January but couldn’t visualize what I would do with it! So now I have to watch for a second one so that I can do this project from Centsational Girl.)
So how about you? Have you found any great secondhand finds? It is almost yardsale time so in a few weeks we should be able to start getting some great yardsale deals!
