Thrift Store Finds and A Couple Re-Do’s

Happy Sunday evening everyone. This will be a short one, I want to post some of my TS finds. I am also still working with Live Writer, trying some of the different things that you can do.

I bought this little scarecrow at the TS..only 49 cents! Isn’t he cute, and of course he has a little crow on his shoulder.

Another little scarecrow shelf sitter..49 cents. Can you tell I love scarecrows???

Now I have to tell you I hit the jackpot when I found this toaster oven box, I did pay $7.97 for it but I felt it was a steal! Below is a picture of it opened.

I plan on painting it, not sure what color, but it will be changed, I am also changing the knobs to wooden ones.

I had bought the wall cabinet at a craft show and wasn’t in love with the punched tin that they had chosen but I wanted the paint color, so I hopped on the web and searched for punched tin and found one that I loved.

Before, I love stars but not for this cupboard

After, I feel this gives more of the prim feel

The flash makes the tin look rippled but it’s not.(The wooden bowl on top was a GW find that I painted and distressed )

I bought this breadbox for 99 cents at the TS

And here it is painted and distressed…I know another black box, but I love the way it turned out :)

I now use this one for my girlie things on my dresser. The bottom box is a old carpenter tool box that I bought years ago at a yard sale…would love to find another one like it!! The small lamp to the left was a craft show spool light, I found a TS shade and I married them together, now it is a small night light. It gives off such a soft glow…love it :)

I think that is all I’ll post tonight for the TS finds. I have more that I will post later…..didn’t I say this was going to be a short post??? lol 

It is such a cold evening here in Central Pa., we have had our wood stove going for a couple days now. I know some of you have had yours burning for a while. My DH wanted to wait as long as possible to start…the time has come! I love the warmth of wood. It is time for me to go and sit by the fire and relax for a little before I have to get Dad ready for bed.

Thanks to all of you for stopping by to visit and for leaving me sweet comments, it truly means a lot to me.

Until the next time…stay warm!




  1. WOW Wanda, you hit the jackpot this time! Looking forward to seeing the toaster cover made over. The rest are wonderful!

  2. Nice findings!. Love, love your makeovers, especially the little cupboard.

  3. Those are awesome goodies you found! I paid $3.99 for my wooden breadbox, what a deal you got! The scarcrows are adorable and that toaster box is great too:)

  4. Your goodies are great. I don't know which I like best. The new tin definitely makes a huge difference in the cupboard!! You are really getting into this redoing...we told you it was addictive!! Have a great day.

  5. Hi Wanda,
    You found some really great stuff! The new punched tin in the cupboard is gorgeous! The bread box and toaster oven box.....all I can say is wow! You did a fab job primming them to perfection! Have a great day! Hugs, Loretta

  6. Wow Wanda! I love everything. And what a great find with your toaster cover! I Love it!! And definitely the new tin makes a big difference. Thanks for sharing and have a blessed day!

  7. Way to go girl! That's the way to go TS shopping if I do say so myself. I really enjoyed looking at all of your finds. Don't worry about another black box, I usually paint most everything black and then allow my other prim decoratives to add color to what ever it may be. :) I really love your blog.

    Blessings and Perfect Prims,

  8. Love all of your finds, especially the toaster cover! And the new tin insert looks much more prim in the little hanging cupboard.

    Now I need to go read your other posts. Have a great week!

  9. I really like your little cabinet! I love your
    house and I know what you mean about not
    having enough counter space, my house in
    Texas doesn't have much. You made it work
    with that long base cabinet you refinished...Love that, too! Makes me
    want to go to auctions, but I don't have
    any more room for furniture!
    Shucks :(

    Bear Hugs~Karen
