But, I have been out thrifting and doing some other fun projects. I suck at taking pictures and the iPhone isn't any better at it, but I'm not a professional getting paid the big bucks...so, we have crappy pictures.
I found two of these candle sconces at Goodwill for $3. Primed and painted, they will look great somewhere. The bobeches have holes in them so I'm going to need to find some crystals. Black ones perhaps?
I helped my neighbors with some planting issues they were having and in return they gifted me a vintage globe that they had a double of. I've been wanting one for a while and took it with glee! And painted that sucker with some chalkboard paint. Now look at it!
I have also been picking up lots of frames. I have a project in the works that I'll show you later once it's finished. But since I had the chalk board paint out...(dangerous words)
I've already confessed to you my thing for chairs. I have an equally rabid thing for lamps. I love them. I love to pick up a cool lamp at a thrift store and rewire and paint it and make it totally cool and unique. Cool lamps are also prohibitively expensive. I bought this brass lamp at the thrift store because of it's cool shape. I rewired it and picked up a shade (it's a bit too big for it) and painted it with some spray paint I had on hand. I like it! I have a few more to show you but I haven't taken any pics of those yet.
And I've been framing and hanging art around. Yes, I'm ignoring the fact that most of the walls haven't yet been painted, only primed. I was sick of looking at blank walls:
I'm hoping to pick up a CraigsList couch soon so that I finally have some where to sit in my living room other than my half a dozen mismatched chairs.
I really should start an etsy store to sell some of this stuff cause I don't have enough room for it all.
AND, I finally hung up this awesome, wonderful quilt a dear friend of mine made for me. I just love it!
