Goodwill Goodie Makeover ~ After

Good Morning!  It's a bit dreary today and there's another chance of rain ~ fall has certainly blown in.  The farmers are in the fields and the smells outside are wonderful.  Instead of the usual traffic, the blacktop is crawling with combines, tractors, and wagons now.  I love this season!  I've got my Scentsy warmer on and the house is filling with the scent of cinnamon cider.  If you've never heard of Scentsy before, I recommend that you look it up on the web.  It's a great product.  I think that my day will be spent baking pumpkin bars and cooking up chili in the crockpot ~ it's the perfect weather for both!

My Goodwill Goodie Makeover is complete and once again I'm thrilled!  I love the cut marks and how the double paint highlights them.

These are displayed next to our fireplace for now.  I have a magazine rack (also a Goodwill purchase) that may become their home once it undergoes it's own makeover.  It's exciting to see how a coat or two of paint transforms these pieces into the perfect prim decor.  I have began to look past the current condition of a piece to what I can turn it into.  Before when I visited a Goodwill store, I would start at the clothing racks and then, if I had the time, take a quick look at the other items.  Now I find myself searching for makeover projects first! 

I'm not sure what next week's makeover will be ~ it may be another cutting board or I may try a candle box that I've purchased.  One thing I know for sure is that I'm mad for a makeover!
