I have become so obsessed with Salvation Army and fixer-upper projects that today Ashley, Kara, and I hit up 3 Salvos, 1 Goodwill, and 1 other thrift store, D.I. Although Goodwill attracted quite the crowd at 9:00am, I would have to say that my favorite is still the Salvo. Today was 55% off at Salvo and 50% off at Goodwill, so needless to say…. I came home with a trunk full of treasures.
I picked up this spice rack for $1.00.
cleaned it, sanded it, spray painted it, added some fabric to the back and some vinyl to the front and turned it into this
Here is a little end table that I bought for $9.00
I also came home with two ottomans. The first one I found at Salvo for $6.00 and thought it was a little big but it would still work, and it was so cheap I had to buy it. Then we went next door to Goodwill and I found an ottoman that was the perfect size and it was $4.00… so I bought it too. Unfortunately… I stopped at 2 Joannes and looked online and of course… the fabric I used for the chair has been discontinued! So it may be a while until I get busy on the ottoman… I’ll have to figure out how to get around this little wrench. I also came home with some picture frames, an end table, an old ugly wedding dress (i’ll fill you in later), 2 adorable ceramic popcorn bowls, and some other home decor project pieces. All in all, a very successful thrift store outing… and only spent $34.00.
