{Makeover}

After looking at so many blogs about going to Goodwill and getting things to turn into something better, I joined in and went this week with my mother and we had a good time with the possibilities. I got about 8 items for a whopping $9, here is my first redo: drumroll please Who is John Randall you may ask??? I don't know, but from the looks he was probably born in the 80'S... HA!


And now it belongs to my Hannah with a "H"

It's something she can hang her little purses and hats on, I am so pleased with the way it turned out, it's a simple project, I primed it, and then just painted it white with some acrylic paint, the H was found in the Target $ spot and it's actually a magnet and I just hot glued it on, roughed up the edges a bit with a pumice stone since I had no sandpaper, even though you can't really see the rough edges, and that's it. I have more stuff I am dying to do, but they require spraypaint and well, it's just too darn cold to be outside, this not having a garage thing has it's negative moments, oh well, it's supposed to be in the 40's mid week so I'll wait for that!! So, tell me what you guys think of my project??????
