What a $1.99 can buy! {Goodwill}

A cup of coffee perhaps!  Whenever, I want to do something on the cheap, which is often in case you haven't noticed, I head out to Goodwill or the Dollar tree.
On this particular day it was Goodwill.

Had potential! Wood, crate, I can certainly use this in my kitchen.
I used the color Safari green by better homes and gardens.
Loves it! This is the same color I did my bar stool legs in that ya'll liked too.

I had to stencil something on it, and this was the only thing I could think of as I looked around.

I have a feeling I will be using this all about in my kitchen.
Perfect color, with Christmas right around the corner.

There are the stools again in case you forgot the green.

And that is what a $1.99 can buy ya!
Have a great day..thanks for popping over and saying hello.

I did a full table scape and will be sharing that, but I wanted to show you this first.

Gotta, just gotta, love Goodwill or "The Will" or G-dub, whatever you want to call it ;) If I don't get by there every other week I start to hyper-ventilate I swear! Terrific find, awesome price and the perfect color for any season. The stencil is perfect for your home too!

That is wonderful color of green. I now go to Goodwill often because they have a book store and a coffee shop so why leave?

Fab Find. Perfect. It Rocks. So you. And I want to make that find too. Guess I'll be heading to the G.W. after my serge lesson tomorrow, unless I'm fit to be tied after an hour with the lady I just meet.

I saw a similar crate at the thrift store and didn't but it because it looked too new. What was I thinking!

I'm hosting an everything Thanksgiving party next Tuesday and would love for you to join. Please stop by!

Love that green! Did you get the BH&G paint at Wal-mart? Also love how you hung a crate as a shelf in one of the photos @ the top.

My GW and your GW are simply NOT related!!! LOL I went into ours today and was appalled at what little merchandise they had and how much they wanted for it! Give me a good yard sale any ol' day up here. I am jealous of what you southern girls find in yours. Love the green on the box and its bargain price, Deb. :-)

You must have a great Good Will store, Debbie. Around here, our Thrift Stores raise their prices in everything, since they were quickly becoming hot spots.

I love your find and what you did with it.
