I felt like I hadn’t done any updating of our house in a while. I wasn’t really inspired and couldn’t find anything I wanted, so there wasn’t a lot of activity around here. I think I was using all my energy on recipes and Christmas gifts and whatnot. Now that I don’t have that stuff eating away at my time, I am anxious to get back to home decor.
I decided to head to Goodwill because I usually have good luck there. It was during one of their auctions so the store was pretty crowded, but people were congregating around the auctioneer. This meant that I had free reign of the rest of the store. I stumbled on some cowboy boots that I really wanted. I tried to squeeze my foot into them, but sadly, they didn’t fit. Which is pretty shocking because I wear a 6 or 6.5. No luck though, so I continued on to the home goods.
I’m always looking for a birdcage because my friend Morgana has a plant in her kitchen that she put inside a little birdcage and I think it’s the cutest thing ever. Well, I didn’t find a birdcage, but I found this instead:
I’m pretty sure it’s for candles, but I thought a plant would fit nicely inside of it. As if it were fate, I also found little terracotta pots at Goodwill. So, I brought them home too and re-potted one of my plants in it to complete the look:
Then, I hung it right in my kitchen window:
I also found some really great oval and round frames. I plan to spray paint the two larger ones, and leave the little one as is.
I think for the larger one, I want to use chalkboard paint to make it its own little chalkboard. What do you think?
So, for a grand total of $12 I got all of these great things. Oh, and one other frame that I’m already using for wedding pictures.
Do you tend to have good luck at Goodwill? What’s your favorite find?
