A Goodwill Party and a stool

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick is having a::

and I happen to have some cool finds!

I’ll post about one of my most recent finds. As mos of you know, Tracy and I do a lot of garage sailing and thrift hunting.

I’d been wanting a new step stool for Jaxon for a while. I was so happy to find this a few weeks ago::

Yes that’s right…  $1.00!!!

I took Jax w/ me to pick out a color for his new stool, we then went to “hobby wobby” to pick out some paper for the top.  Here’s what we came up with::

I simply painted and the adhered the paper, sanded a little and sprayed clear acrylic all over.
Here’s the finished product::
Total cost $5.00!!!
We love it!
So… If you have any thrifty makeovers, go and post now!  OR, just go look through the links for some great inspiration!
Here’s a pic of some more things I need to show you once I’m finished::
Happy Monday!
