Inspired by Centsational Girl

After browsing around Centsational Girl's blog and learning to "look" at everything around me in a new way I stumbled across a few Treasures. The first one I forgot to take a before photo of so I removed the top and took a picture of the under side so you can see how dark and dated it looked. I found this one on Craigslist for $10.00. The second photo is after the first coat of primer spray paint.

Finally with a top coat of Heirloom White it has found it's place in my Master bathroom and is waiting for a few more treasures of it's own to hold.

Next is a head board I found at Goodwill for $12.00. Now normally I wouldn't have looked twice but after viewing Centsational Girls blog I've learned to look at everything with a new eye, well that and I've learned to "borrow" her ideas as well! ;)

I picked up some chocolate chalkboard paint from Home Depot and a couple of hooks. I taped off a square and painted - added the hooks and wrote "No Lifegaurd on Duty" It's now going to be hung on the block wall next to our pool.

Thank you Centsational Girl!!! Hopefully my friends will be inspired to see things in a different light!!

Yes, you totally have to share your new dress find... also, I checked all the closets twice, and NO DICE. (er, I mean no pants!) Dang.
