Today's Thrifty Treasures & Metamporphis Monday


On our trip to Idaho last week, we stopped at at thrift store and I found this cute quilt, the price was right and I grabbed it. I didn't realize it but there are crocheted flowers and detail work on it - I love it!










Because we're back home today, it's our weekly trip to the Goodwill Store that I love! I found some great items and was pleased with my finds.

Ths large wicker basket to put in the laundry room, $2.


Creative memories white ceramic holder - I bought one for Crystal to keep her wedding mementos stored - her's cost $25 - this one cost $4!


This cute stool, the top is faded but it doesn't matter to me - I plan on collecting stools to stack in my office - so far I have two stools... $2 for this one!




Now it's time for my Metamorphis part - I got this plate rack at Goodwill awhile back and DH hung it up and I filled it with more Goodwill finds!


I guess I'm on the bandwagon - I saw this large fork and spoon and knew immediately that I would give it new life with white spray paint.


Here it is after!

And all of it together...




Stop by Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for more Today's Thrify Treasures and Susan at Between Naps On The Porch for more Metamorphis Monday and before and afters.

I visit our local Goodwill at least once a week and always come out with something.

Love the big wicker basket, such a nice shape. The little stool is so cute. Great idea about stacking the small stools. I just might have to steal that idea!

Very pretty quilt. I found an oversized spoon and fork a while back at a thrift store and painted mine black. My mom laughed and told me she used to have a set just like it when I was little :)
