Goodwill Goodie Makeover Monday

Can it really be Monday again and the final week of September?  Time seems to slip by faster every year.  I want to send out a big welcome to all my new followers!  Thanks again Janene for spotlighting my blog ~ the number of hits has been amazing.  Be sure to share my blog with all your friends!

For this week's goodie makeover I have decided on a lazy susan that I actually picked up at Salvation Army.  I purchased it for $1.99 and did think about leaving it as is.  However, I think it would look better with a coat of black paint and some distressing ~ maybe a second color as well.

Here's the before photo (and before I cleaned it) ~

Hopefully the weather and the kids' schedules cooperate this week.  It has been so rainy and humid here that it makes it difficult for that paint to dry!  DS and DD will keep me running this week with cheerleading clinc, dance class, soccer, AWANA, and a cheerleading performance.  They are only in 5th grade and 2nd grade ~ I can only imagine what it will be like once they hit junior high and high school!

Be sure to visit again on Finish Friday to see the end product!


  1. Michele,

    I will enjoy following your blog and reading your posts! I've always loved visiting Janene! I just worked on a couple of GW finds myself today. Maybe I can share them soon when I get them all displayed!

    You're definitely my kind of thrifty girl! :)


  2. Can't wait to see where you use the cabinets, as a centerpiece?? Always keeping us guessing! :)

  3. I am a Goodwill junkie and love makeovers. I am in love with the transformation process. I'll be back to see how Susie looks with a makeover!

  4. Sometime in May I purchased an enormous wooden lazy susan from a local GW store.
    The people around me thought I was crazy as I was caring on about how great of a find it was!
    I ended up painting mine black and distressing it.
    I can't wait to see what you do with this.
    I don't think that I ever did a post on mine...maybe that can be my next post! Thank you for the great idea :o)

  5. Michele: I love your makeovers. It's my favorite thing to do too; find a great find and re-do it. It just takes me a while to get the finished product posted sometimes. Your blog is very interesting; I will be back. Signing up as a follower now. I invite you to visit mine: and become a follower. Prim Hugs, Joy
