Goodwill Goodie Finish Friday

Whew!  Didn't think I was going to make it!  This week has went by too fast again ~ both kids had science camp and then DD came down with what the doctor first thought was strep throat, but turned out to be hand, foot, mouth virus.  She's feeling some better today, but her mouth and throat are extremely sore.  I just hope that no one else develops it!

So, want to see how I finished off this week's makeover?  I started with a heavy base coat of black, then added a light coat of cream, sanded, then finished off with a light coat of stain and wax.

What do you think?

Here's the surprise ~ I'm not keeping this one.  When I saw this at Goodwill, I knew right away that I wouldn't be.  It actually is going to find a home in my bestie house, a belated birthday present ~ and she doesn't know it yet.  Well, I guess as soon as she reads this post she will!  She hosts Thanksgiving every year at her home for her entire family and is always on the look-out for Thanksgiving decor.  I thought it would be a great addition to her displays, possibly finding a place on top of her cupboards. 

Hope you like it Hayley!


  1. What a blessed bestie she is! Thanks.....gonna have to start searching for a place to put it....let's plan a hobby lobby trip.....maybe I can find some decorative berries and/or a candle and put it in my bay window!

  2. Just took a closer look at it.....maybe I will save it for fall decoration! Either way.....thanks a million!

  3. It turned out wonderful Michele! Your bestie is a very lucky person :) Hope your daughter gets over the Hand Foot and Mouth virus soon! My little niece had it last year and it wasn't pleasant. Have a wonderful weekend!
    Hugs, Trish
