I’ve been anxiously waiting to share these before and after photos with you. It is amazing what beautiful things can be created with so little money!
A month or so ago, I found this stool at a yard sale for $3.00. I thought I would spray paint the frame, recover the “cushion” and use it for a piano bench.
But as soon as I got it home, I found the perfect home for this stool.
Under my apple green desk, of course!
My plans to spray paint the wood were quickly derailed as soon as I saw the gorgeous warmth that the wood tones brought to the desk’s cool green. I grabbed a scrap of fabric from my stash and covered the cushion. I just love it!
My friend A bought these delightful bottles at a yard sale recently. They, however, were not so delightful at first…the bottles were FULL of gross old garlic. Ick. But A bravely washed them out and filled the bottles with colorful Fall candy.
I took it apart just like Sarah shows in her post…easy peasy. Then I spray painted the base chocolate brown because that’s what I had on hand.
I placed the clock base under my white footed bowl. The base adds interest and a little more height to the vignette.
Then I cleaned the glass globe and placed it over a candle on top of my bookcases.
A lovely cloche for only 0.25! 🙂 Not too shabby! Obviously, I won’t be burning this candle, but I didn’t intend to anyway.
Have you found any awesome thrift store or yard sale finds lately?
