Thrift Store Finds
I found some neat wooden things at the thrift store again! This bag of what I thought were wooden knobs but now after opening them I see some of them have rubber rings around them, so I'm thinking maybe they were stoppers for some type of bottles... I don't know..... Anyway, they remind me of small doorknobs. I want to make something out of them... I'm going to clean them up and remove the rubber rings. I was thinking of making photo holders out of them, you know, like the kind made from vintage doorknobs. Don't know if I should paint them or not....
If you have ay ideas for these things I would love to hear your suggestions! What could I make out of them besides photo holders and paint or no paint?? lol.
I also found this beautiful 3 mirror thing (it looks like one of the mirrors is missing in the photo but it's not, it's just a reflection) It was on sale for $10! It was so hard for me to take pics of it (it's so dark in my house I had to put it on a chair and drag it near the window (crazy what I have to go through to get a pic in this dark house! lol) And it's still not a very good one but the best I can get. I'm going to paint it white and distress it a bit. I'm not sure what to paint it with (spray paint is out for right now (too cold outside in Chicago) So either latex paint or should I get some chalk paint?? I've been wanting to try chalk paint... If I use chalk paint should I order some or make my own from the recipes I see online?? Tell me what you think!
