I visited our local Salvation Army on Saturday. It's actually one of two in our area, both being about a 30 minute drive. Let me tell ya, Saturday is not the best day to go. Talk about crowded, plus there was hardly any furniture. Not that I need any, but hey, ya never know, if it's a good price............
Here's what I brought home. I saw the potential of each item and the best part is I only paid .79 cents for each item.
First up are these brass candlesticks. I have to clean the wax off them. My plan is to paint them and I have an idea on how I'm going to use them and it's not as candlestick holders.
Next, is this planter. It's ceramic and not old, but it has a faux patina that makes it look old. My plan is to get a plant, maybe some herbs and set it on my kitchen window sill.
I know, you're thinking why in heck did she buy that? I think it's cute. I'm going to put a votive in it. I'm thinking of removing the green leaves and if I can't I might paint them white. What do you think? Should I paint them or leave them green?
Have you been thrift shopping lately? If you have, what did you find?
