Goodwill Party!

I am excited to participate in "the Goodwill" party hosted by Thrifty Decor Chick because her blog is the inspiration behind my awesome Goodwill transformations!  I actually posted about this here and here about 2 down, but in to make things easier, here are my Goodwill trash-to-treasures!

1 beat-up wooden bread box, two trays, lots of candle holders, small mirror, one lazy susan, one pedestal bowl, a gold bowl, and one brass lamp (that some how didn't make it into the picture). Cost? 30 bucks, plus some paint!

Beautiful black, silver, and blue accessories for our new house! And one "oil rubbed bronze" lamp! I love all my little treasures!

I also want to share my wine bottle vases.  I made these out of wine bottles. I didn't technically get them at Goodwill, but I'm sure you could do it with any vase you might find there.  All i did was prime and spray paint the bottles Carolina Blue. After they dried, i covered half the bottle with newspaper and taped a stripe on the bottles. I then spray painted them with the remaining oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.  After drying and removing the tape, I glue-dotted a ribbon to the dividing line for a finishing touch! I love them and can't wait to use them in our bedroom. Cost? um, free.  I used stuff I already had!
Thanks for looking!!!
