A Trip to Goodwill


My Mom is here and what fun it is to sneak out all by myself while the kids are napping and under Gramma's care. And also what fun to go shopping and then load the car with huge and wonderful deals while the snow swirled around me! Just a few flurries.

BEFORE

This little red shelf looked pretty beat up. But with a little magic eraser and some paper and glue, she looks as good as new. Now I don't want to give it up! But the plan is to sell at the consignment shop.

So cute! You are so creative. I love it as a bookshelf, but the "mud room seat" works as well. I'm so glad you blog so I can still some of your creativity!

What a great idea for a mudroom shelf! I have trying to figure out something similar for the spot behind my front door, without spending more than, say, three dollars.:)
