Our Front Room Shelves Makeover ~ and some Goodwill Finds

A few weeks ago, I posted about painting these shelves

Well, now they are all put back and have all the usual stuff put back on them

You wanna see?

Sure, come on in…

The full view

I love these two turquoise-y blue pieces, don’t you?

For one, the colors and the shapes are amazing

And two, you guessed, I got them from GOODWILL!


How about we hop over to the other side…

Right side

What do we have over here?

If you notice on each, there are those great lime green storage boxes.

Yep, Goodwill … $3.00 for BOTH of them {1/2 off sale day}

There are some photos and a bit of Raku Pottery I made a few years ago

I love this piece.

One thing to know about Raku is that you can’t put water in these vases.

They aren’t sealed like the fired pottery we are used to seeing.

Another piece

{amazing that these survived the move!}
