As the days turn darker rather quickly due to the change in daylight savings time, my work at home is slowing down. Now that it is colder and Winter is only a few weeks away, I stretch towards the finish line in furniture restoration and painting.
I am now volunteering at a small thrift store in my neck of the woods and I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad one. Since I started there 2 weeks ago I have brought home a few things. I do not need anything concerning my home, but when nice things appear in front of you for a dollar or two you can't resist from grabbing it.
To my surprise I was told by the manager that at the end of each working day I can have for free any items I want that would add up to $5.....AAAAAWWWW! Yes!!!!!
Well I had spotted a floating shelf that was marked for $1 dollar, so I grabbed it and the next day I began my redo on this shelf.
I primed and painted it a deep burgundy to match me bedroom decor and after it was painted I then I decorated it with gold upholstery tacks..It came out lovely, take a look below.
This is the floating shelf before painting it.
This is the after photos and floating above my bed.
Lovely and for free, now that's a FRUGALICIOUS DEAL!
