Up Next: Bathroom Mirror

T2T: P2
Today Kate and I visited Dicker and Deal and April's Antiques and found a car-load of goodies. Many pictures of the transformation to come. Here is a sneak peak of one of our projects:

Trash to Treasure Adventures: Part I 1/2

Also found at a garage sale in Kalamazoo MI, this, dare I say "ugly," piece of trash is going to become a glamorous washcloth holder/bathroom shelf.

This almost garbage item was rescued from my sisters house and will make a beautiful centerpiece once painted (see below). 

Hard at work with the pink :)

Trash to Treasure Adventures: Part I

Trash to Treasure
Since recently moving to the great state of Indiana, my husband and I are in the process of buying a house. We are on a tight budget but I will settle for nothing less than fabulous when it comes to my belongings. I am lucky enough to have a sister with an imagination and an eye for design to help me. This summer we will be scouring flea markets, garage sales, and junk stores looking for items we consider a steal that can be repurposed, refurbished, and frankly, made to be better than they ever were to begin with. I hope to document our treasure hunting journey here on my blog to serve as inspiration to others and a reminder to ourselves that with a little imagination and elbow grease, trash really can become treasure.

This little beauty came from a garage sale in Kalamazoo, MI. The lady charged me $3 and when I gave her a 10 dollar bill she gave me back 8 in change. I guess being jipped a dollar is a fit punishment for the crime of not knowing basic math.

Proper taping is key!

And voila - the finished project. Stay tuned to see how it looks in my new house!
