Fabulous Re-do's & Treasures & Trinkets Thursday!!


You remember this??...
I got it at a yard sale last week for 50 cents!


I cleaned it up a little....
I didn't paint it because I like that chippy look, but I did scrub it down good!
I decided to put it here and do this with it...




Isn't that SO much better!
:-)

I know you all are probably tired of seeing this goodwill picture, but this is the last thing I'll be showing you from that picture, because I am totally finished re-doing all my fabulous finds!
If you missed any of them go here, here and here.

Okay, here is that Goodwill photo one more time. :)



See the three candlesticks in the upper right hand corner?
I decided to do with them what I do with all things brass....

I primed them here....



Then I slapped a white coat of paint on them and put them here...



They look shadowy in this picture, but they're white, I promise! lol

Here is the whole vignette...



My birdhouse was free....mom gave it to me
My little glass house with the eggs was .50 (already had the eggs and moss)
Candlesticks were $2.50 (already had the paint)
Already had the bunny and apothecary jar (shells were free from our last vacation)

So, this whole thing cost around $3.00!
:-)
I'm cheap and I LOVE it! LOL

Have a great day!
Blessings and hugs!
Missy

Don't forget to link up something!
I'm pretty easy..
1. it has to be something you own or made.
2. link it back to me...it's just the nice thing to do.
Uhh...that's pretty much it...I'd like it if you would put my button on your sidebar, but I'm not going to ban you from linking up if you don't. :)

Are you a professional designer? Because your display is phenomenal! I tried to link my tabletop fountain post (Friday) up to your Mr. Linky. But I just got a new computer this afternoon, and I think something isn't working quite right.

No, I'm not a professional, I just strive to make it look that way. :)
