Random makeovers....

I so enjoy "making over" things. No matter what it is, there is a sense of accomplishment and joy that I get out of making things my own way. Every so often I will make a "Goodwill stop" and just see what goodies I can find! The things below came from Goodwill except for the picture frame. All I did was sand down the objects and then paint them white and distress them. And then they fit perfectly in my "shabby chic" style home.
The picture frame turned out perfect! Now I just need to fill it up with pictures!

My dessert stand was my favorite makeover! The top was a cheese holder/cover and the bottom was a candlestick. They worked perfectly together!!

And the last one is the stool. I had been wanting one in the bathroom to sit on when giving Paisley her baths and also to have for Paisley when she is old enough to stand on for washing her hands and brushing her teeth. This was the perfect height!

You never know what you might find at Goodwill that can make you happy! Just use a little imagination and paint and it can totally change the look of things!

It's so much fun!
