DIY Projects

I'm a beginner DIY-er, but I'm always trying different things.  Lately I've been making over finds from Craigslist, Goodwill and thrift stores.

Goodwill jewelry box

Before.  I think it was about $3.

After.  The inside is scrapbook paper and wow, that yellow stuff was tough to get out!

 

Stools

We'd had these stools for years and one day it occurred to me to paint them black!

 

Thrift store birdcage

Got this birdcage for $11

Gotta love spray paint!

 

Goodwill frame

Thought this was interesting

After some white spray paint.  Still no appropriate place for it, oh well.

 

Old frame

I found this old frame in my mom's basement

A little spray paint to tone down the gold and I had it made into a mirror at a local shop.  Total cost: $23.

 

Magazine rack

My mom's friend gave me this old magazine rack
