Goodwill Goodies!

Here are more of my GW finds, I am seriously addicted to this place! That's OK, right? Well, here's an overview picture of the cute stuff I found.

I love this little blue house ($2), not quite sure where it will end up just yet.
I plan on painting the silver jewelry box ($1.75) white (surprised?), and will keep the frame ($1.00) as is. The have been looking for napkin holders like these, they were only $1.75.


I love my new trash can ($1.00), I needed one for my desk. The birdhouse with the white picket fence was just too adorable and for $2, I knew I could give it some TLC.


Oh yes, this heavy white serving tray was a steal for only $2! I can't wait to use it for our next gathering.



Last, but definitely not least, this GORGEOUS mirror by Carolina. Well that's what the label on the back said. Judging by the size (roughly 3'h x 4'w), and weight it seems to be a pricey mirror, but of course I got it for FREE!! How?? I had a coupon for $25 off a $50 purchase, the price on the mirror was only $20.75. I received so many envious looks that day. It was the most uncomfortable walk to the register ever! Even the poor guy helping me carry the mirror out said, "wow, you sure have upset the women in here." Seriously ladies, it's Goodwill! We all know it's a hit or miss type of store, so why hate? I'm so glad you all are nothing like those meanie women.


Look at the details!! So the question now is, should I leave it as is, or paint it white (heirloom white)? Your opinion will be so much appreciated, thank you in advance.

This is all I got for now, come back tomorrow K?


I will be linking up to:


Be sure to go by and be inspired by all the ladies participating and to leave a kind comment. As always, thank you so much for stopping by and allowing my blog to be part of your day!


XOXO

Wow! Those are some fantastic finds. And the mirror would've been a great deal at $20.75, even without the coupon. I would've been one of the jealous women. :) I live the frame of the mirror as it is, if it works with your home, but it would look lovely in white as well. You can't go wrong with white. I also love the napkin rings and the tray.

You seriously scored girlfriend! I would probably paint the mirror. (And I would so hope that I would be thrilled for you in the store, but since I have some coveting going on right now, I might be a tad jealous too that you acquired that beauty for free. Nicely done!)

I think you should paint it too, but you could also go for black to make it pop off your walls a bit more.

Great scores!! My dad actually made me a large birdhouse like your blue one when I was in highschool. I use it to hold CD's. It needs a bit of a makeover and probably won't be holdinc CD's much longer but I just had to smile to see that someone else in this world has one too.

Jackpot!!! Where did you get the Goodwill coupon?

Re: Mirror - I say try brushing on a little burnt umber or some other opaque color to tone it done. Check this out from My First Home http://netteandjimmy.blogspot.com/2009/08/rub-n-buff-lamp-makeover.html
