I was in Goodwill the other day walking down the aisle of wooden household decor. If your Goodwill is like mine, the aisles are filled with rude people who just won't move over. I turned into the aisle and about 4 feet away was the coolest wall hanging storage piece. Of course the lady in front of me doesn't move over even with a polite excuse me. Then she picks the piece up. I freeze because I knew I wanted that piece. She holds it for a minute, looks it over, then sets it down...PHEW!! When she moves, I grab it. Not only do I instantly love it, but it has a low price tag of $4.
Here it is when I get it home.
Of course I know immediately that I am going to paint it. I removed the name plaques from the front because one is missing. I filled the holes with filler. I primed it with BIN because it had a shiny finish I didn't feel like sanding the finish off first. I gave it two coats of a funky green and distressed it. I painted numbers on the front for a whimsical touch.
In addition to this piece, I am going to get a little off subject. I wanted to share an art project my son RJ did in school. Something about it impressed me so much. It was just so unique. He created a profile picture of "someone" out of little tiny smiley face stickers. How he knew where to put each color to enable the features to come alive is beyond me. Of course I knew who the picture was of immediately. Can you tell who it is?
We just recently did his BEDROOM MAKEOVER. I am going to buy a frame for this and add it to his wall space.
And the last order of business today is the announcement of my lucky giveaway winner. The giveaway was from Mistflower Photo. The winner was Cassie from Primitive and Proper. Congratulations Cassie!
