Goodwill Goodie FInish Friday

It's Friday again!  I just finished baking a caramel apple cake and chocolate chip cookie brownies, so the house has a wonderful smell!  Some probably noticed that there wasn't a Thrifty Thursday this week ~ yesterday was my birthday and I was busy the entire day.  Lunch with DH, then some shopping, and then a delicious supper out with DH, DS, and DD.  I am very blessed!

So onto this week's makeover.  I had a little fun with this lazy susan and gave it a double color.  The black didn't show thru as much as I had hoped, but I'm still pleased with the result.  Removing the lettering on the jar was actually quite easy.  I was even able to find the 1 necessary item to put the finishing touches on the display.

Here's how both turned out ~

And here they are displayed ~

This is the sink area in my laundry/mud room.  The iron and stand were my paternal grandmother's and the wood spools all came from my maternal great-grandmother.  I was fortunate to have spent a lot of time with both of these terrific ladies and cherish the heirlooms that I have received from each.  So what was the 1 item I had to hunt for ~ those wooden clothes pins!  They were a lot harder to find than I had imagined, but definitely complete the display ~ don't you think!

The weather has really taken a turn towards cold this week.  In fact, we had flurries and sleet on Wednesday afternoon.  This weekend is going to be full of non-stop painting ~ I don't want to be bored this winter without a makeover to do!
