We only have one thrift store in our town. I go there occasionally, but only because I have never been lucky enough to find any treasures. I think because we live in an area where the average income is relatively low, it's usually quite a busy place with very little inventory. But today I felt like I struck gold! I have been in need of a spice rack for sometime as my poor spices live in utter chaos in my cupboard - almost as chaotic as the ideas in my head :-) Now I've given it a good cleaning with some orange oil and it's come up quite lovely (sorry you know me, no patience for a before photo), but maybe I'll consider painting it down the road. I think it would lovely in a nice shade of duck egg blue.
Nothing is more enjoyable than finding the perfect treasure for $2 - fits right in with my budget :-)
Now I must be off, I think I hear my sewing machine calling.....
