I made a trip by the thrift store on Thursday and found a few bargains. I'm so excited to put it all to use! I spent all of $7 plus tax!
I spotted the glass jar and the two glass canisters and thought they would be perfect for my craft room. All my storage is open shelving, so I thought these might be great to store some fun looking things and they offer easy access. There was one other larger canister that I might go back and get. It was priced at $3 which seemed a little high to me. These three were all $1 each - talk about cheap storage.
As many of you already know, the cheese dish will be perfect to display all kinds of beauties! I plan on painting the base black to match my dining room. It was $2. They had two others identical and they were priced $5! Why?
The framed painting is going to be transformed into a magnetic chalkboard!!! It came in at the bargain price of $2. You can't buy a frame for that.
On the magnetic chalkboard news - some of you asked where I found the sheet metal. Well, I am lucky enough to have a daddy who has EVERYTHING! Everything including rolls of sheet metal and a special sheet metal cutter machine thingy (it makes it simple to cut the metal). I have read on other sites that you can buy the sheet metal at Lowe's and other home improvement stores. A pair of tin snips will work for cutting it to size.
