Thrifty Thursday and a Winner!

First up thank you to everyone who entered the Rust-Oleum giveaway. The winner is comment number 5… And comment number 5 is from Deanne! Congratulations Deanne, I have sent you an email (In case you’re wondering I used a random number generator that gave me the number 5, and then just counted down 5 comments).

Besides the important business above I thought I would also show you a few pieces I’ve picked up in the last week, and a few that are works in progress.

You might remember I picked up a chandelier a little while ago for the Rust-Oleum project and it had such great feedback that when I saw this one it had to come home with me too. She’s actually already found a new home, as is

I’m always on the look out for ornate mirrors, and when I saw this one at the local auction place I was certain I would miss out. I have a budget and I’m (usually) pretty good at sticking to it! But I was lucky; I think where it was positioned meant that most people wouldn’t have seen it…. but lucky me! Well, lucky Sue (Hi Sue if you’re reading). How gorgeous is this mirror? She’s also found a new owner, just need to paint her and she’ll head to Queensland!

I headed out to drop off some of the kids old clothes at an op-shop this week and couldn’t help but go in and have a look for myself. There were a few pieces I passed on that I shared via Instagram, but I did pick up this little wall shelf ready for my next market stall… I’m just going to paint her white, ready for all the little trinkets a girl can collect


I also grabbed this table at a garage sale… the veneer on top is terrible, but I’m certain (well, almost certain) that I can get rid of all that and just paint her up to be beautiful! She’s another one destined for my market stall.

And here’s a few shots of the pieces currently in progress…
