1/2 Price Fridays

Today was 1/2 price Friday at Goodwill here in cold Orillia. My wonderful niece, who now thinks I am the coolest at creating things since I made her this for Christmas

asked me to make her something for her makeup table so that all of her makeup isn't in her case. I had no idea what I was going to do until I saw a brown wood thingy and a god-awful navy blue organizer/divider -
all for the cheapola price of $6.99 with 50% off at the cash!!!! Then I went to the Dollarama and bought some $2 mirrors and $1.25 letters. But I was still not sure what I was going to do with any of it.

I had some really nice metallic spray paint in my craft room (which also doubles as the cat litter, furnace and freezer room). I painted both pieces and this is how they turned out

I am SOOOO impatient and waiting for them to dry was driving me crazy. I finally ended up doing some dishes in order to keep my mind off of it.

I gorillia glued the mirror to the box and taped it so that it wouldn't fall off. Next, I put some letters on the piece to give it that personal feeling. It was cute, but a little boring. I knew that once I glued the box to the main frame, it would have no "spark" or vavoom.

I had some material left over from my chair revamp and used just a little to give it some funk appeal.

Then I put the whole thing together

I am so excited to give it to her tomorrow. I hope she likes it. Abby Sue now wants one for her room. Pin It


  1. Awesome! I totally need one of those :) Thanks for linking up!

  2. you got a really good deal! our GW's never have sales. :(
    I''m sure your niece will love this just as much as she does the framed piece! Things are so much more special when they're made with love.
    It's fun and functional!
