Weekend Finds

Are you familiar with Habitat for Humanity?  Over the weekend I found a Habitat for Humanity (HFH) ReStore location near by.  I have never been in a ReStore before but thought why not?  The HFH ReStore resells building materials, home improvement products and general household goods.  The ReStore in my area was bigger than I expected - it was more of a warehouse.  Sorry I did not take any photo's of the store.  Below are the items that came home with me:

Finds at local ReStore
Set of wooden shutters, 3 mini twig wreaths, a world globe and a wooden chair.  The grand total of my purchase was $16.70.  Can't beat that!

The mini wreaths are added to my stash of craft goodies.  I do not have a plan for them yet but at .25 cents, I could not pass them up.

This is my second set of wooden shutters.  I will likely paint them white and distress them.  One of the sets of shutters I have will become a note collecting station - I suspect the other set will be a decor item.

I have been looking for a globe for a while now.  This one has a really pretty color.  I cleaned it up and made some minor repairs.  She is sitting on a half wall between my dining room and library because her color goes well with the dining room.

The wooden chair was a steal at $5.  The paint is already worn and chipped.  The color is within the color family of my craft room desk.

I took some sand paper to the chair and smoothed out the paint chips.  I found a light greenish paint color peeking through.

The extra distressing added a lot of character and interest to the chair.  I wish I knew more about the life of this little chair.

Take Care!
