... Now my husband can barely keep me out thrift stores! Anytime I see a second hand store, antique shop, yard sale, or hear about an estate sale, I'm up and ready! There are so many things to be found. My favorite second hand store is Goodwill. There is always something to be found in there. And in my town, there is one on almost every block...well maybe not every block, but you get the point.
A few months ago, I had the the pleasure of meeting a fellow blogger (Dayka) who lives here in Atlanta and who also LOVES thrifting. She really finds great things while she's out. Since we met, we have became pretty good friends and I ran the concept of this blog by here and asked if she would contribute to the content (you know....tag teaming!) and she happily accept!!!
To make a long story short one of the things we thought of for the blog is having a feature called "GOODWILL HUNTING". It will basically show you what we've found and most likely purchased and ideas that we have to transform the items into something....Swoon Worthy! I think it would be great for you guys to email us pictures of things that you've found and know has potential, but not sure what that potential is!
So to not bore you any longer here is our first feature:
Dayka found this BEAUTIFUL headboard at Goodwill (and lets just say it didn't fit our beds to keep my blood from boiling over) and didn't have a way of getting it home.
Do you see the potential?
What about now?!!! This is actually a different headboard that was found on a great blog: House no.8 (stop by and tell Lucky Hi!) Can you see what could have been if Dayka would have purchased this headboard for me?! SWOON!
Here is another great headboard makeover. I received a comment from a reader telling me to check out her headboard and I'm glad I did! Take a look at her before:
So what are you going to do next time you see a Goodwill? Nooooo don't stop. RUN! Run in there and see what they have that can be transformed into something SWOON WORTHY!
