Ahhhh, long time no blog! Hopefully I will be making up for that from now on! I wanted to share my recent thrifty projects with you!
This stool was quite hideous when I spied it at the thrift store, but for $5.00 I knew it was worth taking a chance on and could probably be transformed into something a bit nicer! A little bit of paint and some fabric (from a thrifted sheet, of course) and done!
Love those shabby wheels!
Next up I used 2 ladders I found at the Habitat Re-Store for $3.99 each! I love that place! The wood top was behind my washer and dryer when we moved in so I hung on to it, thinking it might find a purpose someday.
I painted everything a lovely pale gray (its almost white but with a touch of gray), rubbed some glazing medium that I mixed with brown on, wiped off and then sealed with a glossy sealer. Screwed it all together and voila!
Added a few accessories and flowers from the yard...
...and now I have the perfect little table for my bay window!
Our house epitomizes "work in progress". We moved in a year ago this month and I have been taking some time letting this 1928 spanish style home "speak to me" so I can figure out which way it wants to be decorated. Not to mention, I am on a tight, tight budget. I will be posting more photos and projects on a regular basis. I've been working on the kitchen and master bedroom so look for those photos next!
I am linking up to some great blogs!
