My Thrift Store Finds Means New Projects...

Hey everyone, I hope you're all doing well. I want to welcome our new subscribers and friends, thank you so much for joining our blog. We are going to try to post more often. I do have a lot of projects on the go, its just a matter of getting them uploaded.

I made my weekly trip to the thrift stores, Value Village and Talize. I didn't find much, but I did get a couple of really cool finds that I can't wait to start working on.


I love this bench for the park, the Monster High dolls have been sitting on rocks but now there will be a small romantic spot in the park. I dont' want to paint the bench because I want it to be natural, but I do want to do something to it. I will probably work on it this weekend.


I also found this cute little jewellery box that would be perfect as a dresser for Draculaura, Draculily and Clawdeen's dorm room. They've been keeping their clothes in their coffins, now they'll have somewhere to put them. I'll be doing a funky paint job on it, well I hope it turns out funky not junky :). If it works out and Lola my niece likes what I've done, I will probably be doing the same with her full size dresser and room furniture, we are giving her bedroom a whole new makeover during March break.

    3. I went yesterday. No nude barbies. I saw a perfect jewlery box that could be a dresser! But it was 3.99$ and it was too wide. Trying the salvation army and dollorama today.
