"My Indoor Loot Shoot"

     Finals are over...YeAh! Christmas break has's about time!!! and now I can just wake up to paint some of the many projects that need finishing and of course go thrift store shopping everyday.

     And yes, I did exactly that the other day and found some pretty terrific things. I know that "staged" pictures look best but I like showing the before and after because it gives an accurate account on what discarded things can become with a fresh coat of paint, new knobs, etc...

     So bear with me and for now just let me indulge you on these fabulous finds....

My fab finds

Love these canisters

Love these old ornate lamps

I have big plans for these pendant lamps

     The 2 white lamps are ones that I have been working on for awhile and I can't wait to show you to final results with new lampshades,'s all a work in progress! Some of these things will find a place in my home and others will you can find in my space at "Sweet Repeats". So now that you have seen the before pictures I hope that'll you'll return for the after pictures. 

     Until next time...happy thrifting and collecting.
