IT'S THRIFTDAY!!!!

Like Candy, over at junksophisticate likes to say......Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.....THRIFTDAY!!
This is a piece I picked up at the THRIFT STORE (of course).  I painted it white (it was a dark green), changed the knobs, and added some words to the top using transfer paper (extremely, with a capital "E" easy).




   
Isn't it just adorable????  Like always, bloggers, HAVE A HAPPY THRIFTDAY!!!!
Thanks so much for looking at my blog, and I love reading your comments and visiting each of your blogs.  Isn't blogland just about the most inspiring place, ever!!

By the way.....I apologize for this pictures not quite lining up (things like that drive me crazy)...does any one have any tips for how to easily line everything up?

Hello Janis... I LOVE this! Especially the French lettering on top! The only way I know for sure how to line up photos, is that I put mine in sort of backwards... by that I mean I put the one I want in first, last, and so forth... then you don't have to drag them where you want! Email me if you don't get what I am saying! Bisous... Julie Marie

The knbs did it! They are just fantastic. Wish I could find them here in Norway.

For me thriftday will be Saturday - still a whole day to go....

But tomorrow I am going to meet other bloggers - think about 10 of us will meet for a meal and a chat in a small town here in Norway - really looking forward to that!

Have a wonderfult week end.

Sandi said...

Your talent continues to amaze me! I love it! Especially the words and the knobs. Just perfect!!

PS I do my photos the same way as Julie Marie. Do the last photos first and so on. That is all I know to do. :)

Now you see? Your paint job? THAT is the way it's supposed to come out! Check my blog to see what a truly fugly paint job looks like, I'm a newbie struggling with the whole process.
You are inspiring, I can only hope to re-do a piece of furniture as beautifully as you've done here.
XOXO,
Anne
