Operation Makeover is now officially underway and seeing as I’ve found some lovely bargains this week, I though I’d share them with you as part of Magpie Monday 😉
I managed to find a new first project (after losing out on the lovely sideboard I won on ebay last week) and I think it’s going to look brilliant when it’s done. I’m going to sand it all down as I don’t really like dark wood and then paint it in a creamy colour I think. I might even change the handles on it if I’m feeling really adventurous.
Inspired by Jen, I went on a charity shop hunt for a glass cake stand and was really pleased with this bargain. I put it on the table for a while when I got it home to admire it and when I went back into the kitchenlater on it was filled with apples so I guess it’s been designated as our new fruit bowl for now.
I originally walked past this mirror when I first saw it as the frame was an ugly orangey pine that had definitely seen better days, but when I saw it was only 50p, I decided to buy it and see what I could do with it. I was planning on sanding it and painting it but when I saw how nice the frame looked, even just roughly sanded, I decided to leave it as it is.
So there’s my weeks bargains, I’d love to hear of any bargains you’ve got recently, or even better you could post about it and join in with Magpie Monday 😉
