Oh my, are you as tired of snow, ice and cold as I am? Spring is my favorite time of year, and this year I really can’t wait for warmer weather so I can get some projects done. I’ve had a day here and there, but I can get so much more accomplished if I have several days at once.
Okay, on with my most recent finds.
Last month when I delivered the Lego Storage Table to my cousin Dana, I picked up this crib from her. It was actually her husband Travis’ baby bed.
UPDATE: see the crib into toy box.
Dana and Travis have the original crib toy box I made, and Travis’ mom wants me to make one from his crib.
These are the side rails.
A couple of weeks ago I visited a store that is really near to me, but sort of new. I have only been to the White Elephant thrift store a few times. But upon this visit, I found a lot of things that intrigued me. This antique floor lamp was $5. UPDATE You won’t believe the lamp now.
$5 full sized cream colored headboard
$5 wood toned full sized headboard
$7 desk—I passed on this the first visit, but I had to go back a few days later to pick up the headboards, so I decided since it was still there, it should come home with me.
UPDATE: see the desk makeover.
When I went to Bowling Green to go thrifting with jamie to celebrate my birthday, I picked up these 2 items at Grandma’s Attic.
We also went to the Habitat ReStore in Bowling Green where we got this rolling work station. Some of the shelves needed adjusting.
Do you remember these items I showed you last week that jamie gave me for my birthday. She called it my blogger staging kit (I think?) I called it my “stash”.
Over the weekend I was reading the latest issue of my (favorite) HGTV magazine, and I saw this little snippet! The magazine has a whole room for a prop closet, but the editor explains she has some shelves in her hall closet.
I’ve been trying to figure out a storage solution for my “props”. I know I would use my items more if I have them easily accessible.
Here’s the suggested list of items you should have in your prop closet. Not a blogger? Not a problem, the editor makes a great point of saying we could all use a “prop closet” to change out our décor when we tire of it. I found it very interesting. If you haven’t check out HGTV Magazine yet, I highly recommend it.
Do you haven any suggestions for my recent finds? Headboards? Lamp? Desk?
