Goodwill Goodie Finish Friday

I'm so excited to share this makeover finish with you that I'm posting it a bit early!  It turned out better than I had envisioned!  At first, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the box once I had it painted and distressed.  When I found the battery-operated taper candles (see yesterday's post) and pip berry picks, it all came together.

Remember what it looked like before ~

(2 lovely country geese had taken up residency on the front before I kindly removed them)

And take a look now ~

I purchased the bowl during a recent Goodwill visit for $.25 and was going to give it a makeover.  However, I think it's the perfect fit here!  This is running a close second to the quilt shelf makeover as my favorite.  It distressed so nicely and the candles primmed up fabulously.  I will be able to easily switch it up for every season!  As you can see, I had to tweak my TV display ~ the crow, leaf candle plate, candle, and Americana plate have found new homes. 

Next week's makeover is all ready to begin.  This is a piece that I have never seen before and it will be extremely useful in our household.  It will be interesting to see if anyone has come across one before.  Be sure to watch for Goodwill Goodie Makeover Monday to find out what it is!

Please continue leaving your comments ~ I really enjoy reading through them!  It's nice to hear from you all!

  6. Michele,

    Awesome makeovers! I get so thrilled over such GW finds and to see them transformed! I still have a couple of things stashed away upstairs that I need to get to. A prim girl can never have too many wooden bowls to make over now, can she?

    Keep those GW makeovers coming! I love them!
