Thrift

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Another awesome thing for my 23rd year? Awesome thrift store finds! Like this:


This easel sells at Ikea for $25. I bought it for $3!

I know, I know, it definitely doesn't look great. But after a scrub down (thank you, Magic Eraser!), it looks like this:


The only stuff the magic eraser couldn't get off was the shadow of the red and blue marker:


And the dents, obviously. It could use a coat of chalkboard paint on the blackboard side, but I think that will have to wait, it's just not that noticeable right now.

I picked up a little wood filler and some spray paint... The finished product coming soon!
