Hooked on Trash

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve gone on and on about my taudry little affair with my local Goodwill store. If you haven’t noticed, then look here, and here.

Well…yesterday I cheated on my boyfriend.
I ventured out of my little corner of town and visited another Goodwill store. And I’m thinkin’ of dumping the first guy for my new lover.
That place was a gold mine of other people’s trash!!!


Okay, I know, these are ugly with a capital U, but the frames are solid wood and substantial, so I’ve got some PLANS for these babies.


Two rolls of wallpaper for $4! The white roll is that embossed and paintable wallpaper with a classic pattern. I’m thinkin’ this will find it’s way in to my bedroom somewhere.

This adorable little lamp was $3.99. It’s already on my nightstand in all its headless glory. I’m still mulling over lampshade ideas.

The candlesticks I posted about yesterday also came from this store. My love for the Goodwill runs deep, so deep, in fact, that I’m Hooked on Trash!

  1. I have to admit I am not a big fan of Thrift Stores…however, my daughter is and she has found some very very cool things. She always knows just what to do to those things to update them and use them in her apartment. I guess I don’t have an eye for that kind of thing. :)

  2. Hi there
    well its good to go to the best! I love thrifting too and I wander around the better and the not always the best too…one never knows…and one IS allowed in this department!

    I can’t wait to see what you do with the pictures. Great finds.

    come by and visit when you have some time. I’m having a giveaway too!

  3. I’d have cheated too. Great great finds. Isn’t it just the best when you hit the motherload at one? Can’t wait to see what you do with the embossed wallpaper.

  4. Hey Kimm – thanks for visiting me today and the well wishes for mom! She should be out soon (I hope)!

    Enjoyed catching up with you – you always have the best ideas. Can’t believe you’ve just now discovered RMS – isn’t the blue bedroom gorg, the one with the “B” (I think) that you have posted further down? She inspired my own bedroom makeover – which I posted on RMS as clm650 – go check it out if you get a chance!

    Have a good weekend!

  5. Great work again! I clicked on the link that took me to the v-day craft post. Those were so freakin’ cute! I LOVE your ideas. Now I’m totally hooked on your blog. You rock woman!!!

  6. For some reason 2 of your pictures did not open for me…I did see the wallpaper. Anyway, I have become a real Goodwill fan. In fact, if I don’t check in at least 2 different ones once a week, I feel like I am being negligent! You got some great buys. Linda

  7. Day 2 of the Where’s Wenda? Contest is here. Today, I am visiting all of the SITStas that commented on Hot Chocolate Caramel Mocha. That means you! Thanks so much for stopping by and for being a great SISta! -Wenda

    I see Wenda stopped by!!

  9. Visiting from SITS and following Wenda. Found her!

    Have fun with your GW trash. LOL You’re much better than me. One, I’m not creative and two, I can’t go in there because I just feel so dirty for the rest of the day. *shiver*
