Two weeks ago I went to both ReStore and Goodwill and found a few lovely things that I thought I'd share with you today!
I recently started collecting pretty, vintage plates and immediately fell in love with butterfly lovelies. I also have been hoarding bunnies of all shapes and sizes for Hadley's big girl room and of course if I find a piece of milk glass for less than a dollar it's coming home with me!! The polar bear piece was handmade and signed on the bottom and too odd/cool to pass up and for only $3.98 a good deal to boot!
But my favorite find of the day was this original painting. I was really drawn to the colors and shapes. Since it was signed (by someone I couldn't find any info about) it was a little more than I would normally spend ($15) but it looks great in our family room so it was worth it.
But before it was wall-ready I needed to wipe it down thoroughly - years worth of dust/dirt were really dulling the paint. I also removed the frame which was damaged.
Once the canvas was clean and nail and frame free I covered the edges with black and white striped washi tape.
I love how it brightens up this corner - aren't the colors spot on!?!?
Here's to hoping there are more thrifting Thursday in my future!
