Thrifty Treasures

I've found some fabulous deals lately, and have totally wrapped myself up in making them over. Problem is- when I get a bunch of items to make over, I go into that Tazmanian Devil (you know you watched it..) tizzy where I just spin around from project to project. Paint something here, sand something there.. you know how it goes. So, long story short, I don't have any of them finished yet, but I will soon! Here are a few items I took home from a couple garage sales:

I paid a dollar for the shelf, $3 for the mirror, and $1 for the basket-tray. I used to have a garage sale-phobia.. but finding things like this is slowing drawing me out of my shell.

I got this bench from Goodwill for $8 (and I'm so excited to finish it!):

I also found a crystal serving platter for $.50, a set of 8 crystal footed dessert dishes for $1.50, and a rocking chair for $15, but, I forgot to snap photos of those. I'll try to update this evening with pictures.

Any guesses on what these will turn into? What thrifty treasures have you guys found this week?

Love that mirror, and the little bench! It's so much fun spending time transforming things for our home, isn't it?!

ooooh... love the mirror and the bench. A little paint and some new fabric and the bench will be so sweet. What do you want to do w/the mirror? Paint? Nice prices, too. Sue
