Goodwill makeovers – Before and After

If you follow me on instagram or twitter, you may have been watching the AH-MAZING GOODWILL FINDS! Goodwill is seriously my favorite store. We are pretty lucky in our area that we have such outstanding Goodwill stores in our area.  When I travel for work, I will often scout the local Goodwill and often walk out with treasures! I have told my friends that walking into a Goodwill is like going to the CASINO for me. It's this crazy high for me when I walk out with shoes that sell for $800 retail and not spend near that for them.  It's a high for me when I find AMAZING furniture pieces that have now taken over our garage (it's starting to look like a Goodwill!).  Can't say I have nothing … [Read more...]

Lego Figurine Storage – Goodwill Before and After

Goodwill is my go-to place for my flighty ideas and project hopefuls.  My boys have all these Lego Figurines and they're scattered throughout the house.  I've wondered to myself how to display them in a nice clean way.  I have also lurked through the Goodwill aisles and have seen these wooden trays wondering to myself, 'what could I do with those?'  Then, all of the sudden, it donned on me!!! Lego Figurine Storage!!! What a concept! All I did was spray paint the wood in a metallic silver paint. What a difference!!!  It is now ready to get to work! Then used hot glue to secure 4 top/8 top/24 top flat Lego pieces in the middle of the individual compartments. Let it dry and started to … [Read more...]
