Woo! I made it to the thrift stores this weekend – and I made out like a bandit. I had two (two!) trunk loads of stuff. That I need. Of course. And I didn’t break my budget!
Saturday was the Salvation Army:
5 Board books
Chandelier for the dining room
Crib bumper (in the right colors!)
Sheer curtain panel
Table cloth (to become curtains for baby’s room)
3 Workout T-shirts for hubby
|Check out that crib bumper!|
Sunday was Goodwill: (a few things are new-in-package retail store leftovers)
Book for hubby
Dump truck toy
Fish lamp for baby’s room
new Lampshade for fish lamp
3 Pairs of baby shoes in the next 3 sizes
Pillow for baby’s room
3 Pull-behind toys
new Queen size bedspread (to become the batting and backing for baby’s quilt)
new Queen size sheet set (to become curtain sheers in baby’s room)
Scootch bike with wagon
new Toilet seat
Wooden train toy set
Sorry, I didn't take pictures of the Goodwill loot. Yet. It's mostly still in my trunk.
I have plans for the chandelier (black spray paint is in its future), and I now have fabric supplies to finish several projects. And toys! So many toys! I'm so excited, though Max hasn't figured out what's so cool about this yet, his favorite toy is still me.
The coolest part of the weekend was learning how to re-wire a lamp, using the fish lamp as the guinea pig. See? It lights up!
