I scored this coffee table for a buck! i thought she misunderstood me and was giving me a price for some small item that was on top of the table - nope, just one dollar for this table. I will at some point redo it and paint it white with some blue in there somewhere..until then, it makes a nice plant bench in the front of our house.
I found this mirror for $2. With a little black spray paint, and a piece of chalk, I changed it into a chalkboard for the front door. I am hoping that the girls will leave little messages for their dad for when he leaves/comes home from work, and he in return will leave them little messages to find in the morning. (I have some work to do in terms of learning how to prep something for spray paint-- look at the gob of magazine pages taped all over --I just dread that part of the process)
...and the final look...
