Fruit Stand
Before...

HoLy CoW I LoVe THIS! I went to a new thrift store today and was doing my normal scouting for wood stuff and saw this BeAuTy! I have been looking for one of these ever sense i saw it on Just for Rachel i was gonna try and make my own but its like this one found me:) lol so anyway i snatched it up! it had no price on it so i asked how much it was and the lady said 1$ Woot Woot! so i brought it home cleaned it and started bringing out its beauty:)
After


I used a flat black paint let it dry and then lightly sanded the edges. then i sprayed it with a clear spray paint....

Looks a little Twilight-ish huh?



Take a look at the thrift stores around your neck of the woods. trust me its so worth it, you will make your home so beautiful for super cheap! All you have to do is see past the UgLy and see the beauty:) You don't need lots of money to make beautiful things.
