Some Great Good Will Decor Items

After tomorrow, we can take down our Valentine's Day decor, and put something else.  I'm not sure what I will use.  I think Easter is April 1st, so I'll wait a little longer to put out the Easter decor.  Gotta get busy and decide what I'll do for the time til then.

Tuesday's are Sr. Discount days at our GW, so I went and found such awesome things for a total of $20.00!!


All these items, a windsor chair, metal topiary vase, 2 books, an artificial plant, like new, very clean, a small aqua lantern, a small chicken picture, a pencil etching of Christ holding a lamb, and a tall picture of hydrangeas.










Here's where I'm using them.



 The turquoise chair went in my bedroom at the desk.

 Also in my room, on the faux mantle for the heater.

 I hung the hydrangea picture above the 'mantle' near the flowers.

 I found this the other day.  Are these called tussie mussie's?


 Of course I had to get this small picture!!

I placed the faux plant near the front door.

So another good day at the GW store.

I'm planning to start consigning items at the Hen's Nest Consignment shop which is about 25 miles from me.  If not, I am going to re-open my EBay store and purge "lots" of stuff.  If it's EBay, I'll let you all know.

Hope everyone is having a great week!  I am!!

Valentine's Day Decor

I decided to do a little valentine's decorating today, mostly in the living and dining room.

The mantel was easy, I only added a few items and a banner to the mirror. 






















Nothing is new except the flowers on the hearth above. Everything else is thrifted. 

I hope everyone has a Happy Valentine's Day!!

A Chair for My Bedroom, and Good Will Finds

I have found several nice things lately, some from Good Will and some from consignment, and I actually bought a NEW chair for my bedroom.



It's more blue than it shows in the photos.  I found it at Home Goods for $79.  


 This piece is from consignment shop.  I also bought an oval lampshade from there.
 Tablecloth from Good Will along with about 5 beige towels.


Love this rooster, recent GW find.

Make a Mantel for a Small Heater

This week as I was in Good Will I found a tall, narrow skinny table.  It had seen better days, but was sturdy and around $8.00.  I used white chalk paint to paint it.


Then at a consignment shop I found a set of tall shutters painted a dull pink.


Even before that, I had bought a Duraflame heater that has the logs and looks like a small fireplace.

I used all these pieces and this is the result.





The outside of the heater doesn't get hot, and I wouldn't run it without being in the room.

The shutters were such a perfect fit, they snapped between the legs. No screws, or nails anywhere!!

I found these 4 plates to hang above the "mantel".  If you look closely you can see the aqua edge.

I want a full size door to go behind this and hope I find one soon.

So that's one way of making a mantel for a small heater.  Hope you have a lovely weekend!!
