I Heart Spray Paint!

I cannot tell you how much I have fallen in LOVE with spray paint. Thirfty Decor Chick is having a spray paint party today and I knew I had to join. I have been working on my new side tables for a few days now and knew I had to finish them for the party! I found these babies at the thrift store and knew they were meant to be mine. I just knew they needed to be in my bedroom. Here is the before and after! Soon to come (when I find the perfect lamps) will be a picture of them in there new home. My bedroom!

Treasure Chest Anyone?

My husband and I were able to go on a date on Saturday afternoon. Well I have been CRAVING to go to the thrift stores to find a fun project. Well it was are lucky day. The whole store was 40% off!!!! So we looked and looked and found 2 fun projects. I will share one of them with you today. This was a great find. Extra storage is always a plus. Here is what I saw...
I immediately had what I wanted in my head. The cost of the trunk at $8.00 I couldn't resist. It would be PERFECT in our office with all the blankets inside. Here is what it looks like now after a little TLC. I LOVE IT!

All I did was remove the outside and recover it with fabric. Added trim to the top and bottom edges, painted the hardware and just like that it was like new. I can't wait to show you what it looks like in my new house. The problem is I won't be there for 8 more weeks. What thrift store finds have you just loved?
