What Have I Been Up To- Crafty Makeovers

My husband finally found my camera usb cord... so now I can post some recent re-do home makeover projects.

First, I had noticed a couple of months ago where some bloggers had the CUTEST organizers in their kitchens. I kept an eye out and found this "beauty" at the G-Will for 1.99.

Oh, yes... those scratched 1980's ducks were just calling my name- not!

So, I sanded it (not as well as I should have, but it is in a low light area)-Sprayed it with brown spray paint, mod-podged some cute scrapbook paper on it and called it a day.

LOVE it!!! Still want to put something in the very front... not 100% sure yet.

My next craft isn't finished yet- I am not sure what I want to put inside of the glass yet. I found the glass (candle holder) and the top and thought they would look cute together. Any advice?

Then, I found this cute hanging N yesterday for 3.99 (a bit more than I would normally spend, but I liked it. Also bought the jute for .50 (yes!!!! fifty cents!!!!! It is a huge ball of it). They do not look cute together- will have to come up with a plan B.

I went to the new Goodwill in Franklin, TN yesterday and found these 2 Baldwin bronze candle holders for .99 and .49. I think they are actually worth something... anyone know?

So, that is all for today :)

  1. Love those BALDWIN candlesticks...awesome deal! Hope you have a FUN week:)


  2. Great finds! The mail sorter came out beautifully. I'd put some eggs in the hurrican vase for the spring.

  3. Nice job on the organizer, it is a great makeover.

    I would put a little nest with an egg or two in the glass hurricane and then switch it out later in the summer for something else.

  4. Love the organizer, and I want one! You did a great job!

  5. GREAT finds!!! My mom had that ENTIRE set of 80's geese and blue ribbon stuff!!! Too bad she didn't save it...I could've had the heads up on re-doing a piece from the collection!

  6. The organizer turned out great! You got some great things.

  7. Great makeovers! That filing piece is so pretty!!!

    Thanks so much for linking up to my party! I really appreciate it!
