Thrifty Finds for Our Living Room

I love to find things to spray paint and redo for my home. Last weekend I was on the lookout for a shelf compartment thing to hang in my living room. My Goodwill always has a ton of these so I was pretty sure I'd find something.

Let me show you my latest Goodwill finds...

I got in a hurry to spray paint this shelf and didn't take a before pictures.
It was pine colored and not my style at all..


I added a vintage stop watch my DH got last weekend from his parents.
It belonged to his uncle who passed away several years ago.
Can you believe that none of the family wanted to have their dads watch?

The small gold frame came from Goodwill and the cross I've had for several years..


the blue bird is from Michaels..

I also got a cluster of these lavender flowers..
I'm not usually a fan of fake flowers but these were really frilly and there's still several flowers left over that I hope to use in some scrapbook projects.


The flower wreath also came from Goodwill...
this project was completed for under $10!

I'm linking to these parties....

I ♥ Goodwill too :) Been finding some great stuff there recently! Your shelf is so cute- and yes, everything does look better with a coat of white paint! Visiting form Homemaker On a Dime party.
