Before and afters from my latest visit to Goodwill.

Love the lines on this metal cake stand that I picked up for $1.00

A little black spray paint and it became the perfect pumpkin stand.

For the past year I have been looking for a lazy susan for my spice cabinet. Yes, I know you can find them all the time, even at Wal-Mart.
But I was looking for wood, small in diameter to fit in the cabinet and it needed to stand up a bit higher to clear the lip of the cabinet.

It was a perfect fit all for $1.00.
I made this FREE 8x10 college print from Walgreens for Ryan’s office. It fit perfect in my $.99 black wood frame.
And last, but not least, this silver shinny acorn dish
Was spray painted a nice matte caramel color and I added some acorns I already had.
Can’t wait for my next visit, you just never know what you will come across.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

    Oh, and the 25 cents college student book.....

    I'm so glad you liked the ideas of framing the vintage letters. It's such a good way of keeping lovely, old things on display.
