Thrity finds!

I love to go garage sales and our local thrift stores. You just never know what you will find. Today I am going to share some of my favorite finds from the past.
 This is a frame I found for 1.00! It was originally a brassy gold color. I sprayed it with ORB and highlighted it with Rub-n-Buff then put a fabric mat in and framed our family initial. This is so cool because the glass in convex, bubbling out, really old and soooo cool. For the complete post you can go here.
I fell in love with her the moment I saw her. I think I paid 10.00 for her which sounds like a lot but it is such a different piece and about 15 inches tall. My sister, niece and I were thritin fools for several weeks. My niece was building a new house and we were going to need lots of stuff to fill up the space. Check out where Ms Lovely ended up here  .
Another great find for my nieces house. Again more ORB and a whole new look.
A friend of mine found this in the trash, can't get better than that. I wanted to make it "girlie" for my little niece.
This was so fun, my daughter is growing up so it was fun to make something for a little girl again.
Can you say UGLY?????  I don't know if you can see this but the previous owners glued a fabric trim on it and spray painted it! This was a Goodwill find. I think we paid 3.00 for 2 of them. But nothing that a little paint can't fix.
  A pretty fresh lampshade and some fabric flowers and a little paint and you don't even recognize the lamp! Check out the full kitchen here.
When I thrift I look for basic items that I like the size and shape of, knowing that I can always change the color. So do you have a favorite? What new items have you found?
Linking to these great parties...

I love all of these! Don't remember the chair. How did I miss that adorable thing? Your last post made me giggle. Guess I'm getting old too. Harder to read fine print.
