Goodwill Grub

I have been blog-surfing lately for ideas for the new house. I found this cute idea for a DIY Cloche at Thrifty Decor Chic.  Love her!  I've been packing and ridding our house of clutter as I go. I made a clutter drop-off at Goodwill this afternoon and decided to run inside to see if there was anything I could use to copycat this little idea. I was super excited to find the Cheese Dome and a Candlestick! 


Here is what I found at my local Goodwill.  I spent $3 on the Cheese Dome and $1.50 on the Candlestick.


The boys and I ran to Lowe's and picked up some spray paint (I used a high gloss but satin would work fine, too!), a sanding block and some super glue gel.  I spent $10.00 on these products, but most people probably have these things in their garage.  Our garage is just in utter chaos right now with the move.

I lightly sanded everything and then gave it a generous spray with the paint.  After it dried I used the sanding block lightly around the edges to give it a distressed look.



This was the final product!
