Before and After

Goodwill is the place to shop!

It’s seriously hard to leave Goodwill without buying something!

With my craft show that I had coming up, I needed a few props or holders for my products.  And low and behold, I found some at Goodwill for next to nothing as it was on a 50% off Saturday!

I love this curio shelf!  Love the price even more $3!!!!

before and aftera bit beat up, but nothing a little spray paint won’t fix…

before and afterBeauty, right!

And this $1.50 sweet find, didn’t care much for the bees buzzing around on it …

And I found a GOLD wire Christmas Tree, but the gold just wasn’t doing it for me.  50% off, it cost me $1.50.  I failed to take a picture prior to throwing some black spray paint on it, but here’s the finished product

before and afterbefore and afterI loved how it held my coffee cozies perfectly!

I total for all three pieces cost me a whopping $6 plus a bit of spray paint.  The challenge of keeping costs down for my craft show displays is so easy just by having a creative eye and seeing the potential in found items.
