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!

Goodwill finds makeover! Buy something for $2 and make it look like much more!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 to do … ever.

Recently, these floor mats found their way into my cart for $2 a piece (I know!!!  A complete steal!!)

Brought them home, sprayed some bleach on them, let them dry and went to work on them.

How did I paint this Goodwill find?

First, I spray painted the avocado green with a navy blue not knowing where this was going to go.

Then I broke out my metallic paints and rolled a solid light blue over it and rubbed some of it off with a dry paper towel to show dimension and the beauty of the detail of these floor mats.

And they are easy to clean as well!
