Thrifty Treasures & Met Monday .. Chargers & Silver

Just a few things to show y’all this week.. 

All were Goodwill finds from the summer ..

First this 2 tier silver stand.. This turned out to be silver .. not plated! I was soooo excited because I paid less than $2.00. Here’s a lil glimpse of what it looked like midway of cleaning.. it was tarnished really bad.

  11. Debbie - What great treasures! The silver was a treat. I love that you painted the chargers. The past couple of weeks I have been looking for some brown ones and I can't seem to find them. It looks like I am going to have to hit the resale shops and the Walmart spray paint aisle.
    Have a great Monday and thanks for sharing.

  13. Hi Debbie-the silver looks wonderful and what a bargin! I like the idea of spray painting the chargers, they are so affordable nowadays, did you used spray paint for plastic or just regular?

  20. Love the white charger! I find a lot of them but they are never the color I want. Now I know I can buy them and paint them. I'm trying a spray painted shelf today, crossing my fingers it turns out as great as your charger.

  21. I have been thinking of "creating" some white chargers--couldn't decide if I should use a gloss spray paint or a flat. Your silver finds are incredible!
