Welcome to Thrifty Treasures & Met Monday.. Hosted by Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality & Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch.
A few more Goodwill finds.. An assortment of dishes that I picked up at Goodwill at different times over the summer.
Prices ranged from .55 to 1.55.
The reason for so many mix-matched plates.. I’m spray painting them of course lol.
Found these darling Bleikristall 24% crystal salt & pepper shakers at Goodwill .. $2.74 for the set.
Stems from Goodwill .. Were originally $1.51 each .. but 1/2 off because they were the color of the week. Perhaps my most exciting find.. This NOKIA cup! My husband’s favorite coffee cup of all time was a hot pink.. yes hot pink cup just like this one.. it’s that eco friendly corn plastic.. his “pinky cup” suffered an accident.. and had to be retired. I had searched the internet trying to find him another one .. but could only find them in bulk of 100’s for purchase. It appears they are a hot thang for companies promoting their business. So hopelessly I gave up.. Then one day as I walked in Goodwill and there it was .. sitting all alone on the top shelf .. as if it was displayed just for me to see. I snatched it up and home it came.. The look on hubby’s face priceless! I got more sugah than his next cup of coffee! lol
This canister is one that I already had .. I had packed it up to give to Goodwill.. but after seeing so many things being morphed here in blogland I pulled it out and decided to give it a new look.
I taped off the section I wanted to paint with my chalkboard paint.
Sprayed the lid with a gloss white to cover the magnolias. This as well as the section I covered with the chalkboard paint required about 4 coats because the raised design of the magnolias. Turned out great .. but sadly I didn’t get a picture of it completely finished at the time because it wasn’t dry and today as I’m posting these both cameras are with Jeff & Ashley. Y’all please forgive me .. promise I’ll fill it with treats soon and get it on here.
For more Thrifty Treasures finds and Met Monday delights .. head on over to Rhoda & Susan’s and see what they and everyone else has going on today.
