From donation, to creation!

With an "eye for design", I am constantly on the lookout for new and exciting, pieces, furniture, fabrics, accessories and various elements to enchance my jobs and spaces. When something stops me in my trademark stiletto's, and, if it is affordable, I tend to go with it. This little habit and job hazard (LOL!) often leaves me with a slew of extra furniture and accessories.

I often donate my unused or unneeded pieces to my local goodwill. As I was heading to a meeting today, I stopped in at the goodwill store. To my great surprise, it was a treasure chest!

Tables, china cabinents, desks, chairs etc - Now, these items all are in need of some TLC and creativity, but to someone with a creative knack, these items can become showstoppers! I currently have my eye on an "Old Hollywood" style china cabinet. With a good sanding and staining, someone's donation, is gonna become my high end looking creation!!!!!!!

Rust-Oleum ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right off my kitchen, I have a crawl space. The crawl space is covered with the world's ugliest, eye sore of a carpet! I didn't want to invest much money in a raely used, barely seen space, but I did want to tone down the glare of the eye sore. In one of my many trips to Menards, I stumbled across carpet spray paint. I figured for the low cost of $5, it was worth a try!

WOW, is all that I can say. Rust-Oleum has come up with an effective, affordable, truly amazing product. It seriously took a outdated, dreadful carpet from vile to fabulous.

I can't sing the praises of this product enough! Onee caveat - it smells awful so make sure to open a window or use a fan to ventilate the smell OUT!!!!!
