Then here is the guest book. It started out a creamy color with a creamy colored bow and ribbon on it. I glimmer misted it in Sapphire several times to get this deep color. Then I tied a white satin ribbon around and tied a bow. Then I added glimmer misted flowers and light blue rhinestones and the pearl swirls. I love how it turned out. I was originally going to put the letters to spell out GUESTS, but I don't think I am going to do that anymore. I don't want it to look too busy, and I think it will clutter it up.
I wanted to share these because I got them today. I have big plans for these guys and a few of their brothers that are still at Home Depot. I can't wait to get started on this project.
I have been reading around on the internet and tons of blogs lately and people have been talking about finding such great things at thrift stores. So today I went into one. I had just told my mom THIS morning that I wanted to find a little black lamp to put in the kids bathroom on the counter. Not as the main source of light, but just as an accent, and like could be used as a night light. So we are doing the kids' bathroom in grey and black. I walk in and look what I found for $4.00. SOLD. I am going to give it a coat of black glossy spray paint to freshen it up and it will look great when we are all done in the bathroom. I am so excited to get started on all the home decore projects I have in mind. I have so many things going right now, I have no idea why I do that to myself. After the wedding I can really focus on those things. I also found this table at the thrift store that I REALLY REALLY want. It was $60.00 though. I just can't swing that right now. The gave me a flyer for their sales, and Friday is half off day. So if the table is still there and eligible for the discount, I just might snatch that sucker up right then and there. I want to spray paint it black and I know exactly where I would put it in the living room.
I don't know what happened to me lately. I have been ready so much about people finding such great things at thrift stores and I am so hooked on going and finding great things too. They had a really nice looking bookcase too. I don't remember how much it was, but with a nice coat of white paint for our bedroom it would look great with some books and the scrapbooks on it. Man I think I really want that too. Darn it, what am I getting myself into? But it is so much fun. My family used to laugh at me because I change the color of my bedroom so often and I would just spray paint everything to match the new color. Hey one mans trash is anothers treasure. I don't mind buying things from garage sales and stuff. I think it is fun to find a treasure.
I just don't get a chance to go often. So I think I am going to make it a point to do it more often this spring and summer. Make a day out of it. I remember when we would do that as a kid. We would get the paper and start out first thing in the morning and drive from one garage sale to another. I am excited at the possibility of what great finds I am going to find. But for now I just really hope that the thirft store will have both pieces of furniture that I want.
