I Heart Goodwill!

I seriously think I hit the jackpot! I am so excited at all the things I found at the Goodwill and one garage sale, that I couldn't resist sharing my fun treasures. I am like a kid in a candy store when I'm in there, I'm so giddy! So come with me and have a peek at my little gems!

I fell in love with the cover of this book and knew it would make a great addition to my coffee table! I hope to one day get to visit England, so I better read up on it! This was $3.00

My Pottery Barn like frames! $2.00 and $3.00

These 2 tables were $6.00 a piece and the blue clippy board was free, my sister got one too!

Goodwill table was $7.99. Even though Claire does not need another table it was in such great shape I couldn't pass it up!
I am thinking of painting it a funky green with polka dots and maybe Craig Listing it!

3 wire hurricane candle holders were $2.00 a piece and the shelf was $3.00

And the Pièce de Résistance!

I almost tripped a lady to get to this! I have been looking for a bench with storage for the laundry room I thought I could use it for the kids hats, gloves and scarves in the winter and beach towels, goggles and sun block in the summer. Ok now that you got a peek into my laundry, what color should I paint it?

I am so amazed at the huge response to my 1st my Giveaway, that I think I'm a little speechless! Well not really, I'm never speechless! please stop on over and get your name in. Winner will be picked on Sunday May 23rd!

LOVE ALL YOUR FINDS.. those wire candle holders so great. So is the pink shelf, tables and I love the bench. I say a fun yellow, maybe worn down a bit. I so need to hit some great goodwill garage sale finds... I am getting the itch. Have a good night. jenn

Ooh awesome finds! I'm thinking maybe the bench needs to be white. ?.

Wow, Megan! You really scored! I love that bench, too. I forgot what your laundry room colors are. My first thought is paint it white, sage green or leave it alone. Love all your finds! Now I am seriously having an urge to go shopping.

I keep meaning to enter your giveaway. I am so happy you've gotten a great response.

And here is my 2nd entry. I would shop at the kitchen store and get a wine rack. I saw some super nice ones. I've been needing a new wine rack for some time now. Thanks girl.

You really were able to get some great deals here! I love the wire hurricane lamps (?) and the bench is hands down the best find! I can't wait to see what you do with them :)

Kim said...

This post makes me just as giddy as it does you. I am right there with you when it comes to feeling that high from finding a treasure in a pile of junk. :) I have found a few of my own recently and am planning to blog about them too. I hope you'll continue to share yours.
