Once again it's Rhoda's (Southern Hospitality) yardsale/thriftstore linky party! I've actually become a bit more discerning in my thriftstore shopping! Before, if I knew where I would use it I would buy it! But I've recently been going through some of my "stuff" and realized I really have a lot of "stuff". So we rented a small U-Haul last week and I donated a bunch of "stuff" to Goodwill - a lot of "things" I had originally bought at Goodwill! I'm not sure where I'm going with this - only to say that I'm sort of tired of shopping for shopping sake! But I do have a couple of things to share with you today ~ smile!
Remember when I made this "Inspire Me" board? It's a visual reminder of the things that I'm working toward in my personal life.
Here's the post that explains what it's all about and how to make one How To Make an Inspire Me Board.
As some of you know, I'm re-doing my office/guest room to make it more "me" and I came across this great frame at Goodwill and knew I'd want to use it in my office. The inside of the frame is a sort of suede material. Anyway, I don't really need another blackboard so what to do!
So I tried it out on my Inspire Me board and it really gives it some oomph! I didn't even need to paint it as it's a sort of burnished silver and works really well with the fabric.
I was going to nail it to the frame but realized that wasn't a good idea so I hot glued it!
The artificial light makes the frame look gold below but it's not.
You can see a bit of the bookcase that I'll start painting this week! Here's peek at a few of the things I have on my board. You can click on the picture above to enlarge it and view everything.
I also found this wonderful faded yellow matelasse for the guest bed for $14!
AND I found this absolutely perfect blue toile planter at Goodwill last week! Brand new! How perfect is this for a room that's going to be blue and white toile!!
It was less than $3!! I love my Goodwill! I told the manager that the last time I was there. I told her she has the best selection and the nicest employees!
