I had some time without the kiddos yesterday so I took advantage of being able to shop alone. I hit up a handful of thrift stores and found some fun pieces.
This flower (I think it's a tea light holder) was 99¢. My plan is to spray paint it--shocker, right? Mark and I recently put up some new curtains in our front room (see picture below) and I want to spray paint this flower pink, as an accent color.

After completing my owls I kinda sorta have a thing for birds. This lady was $2.99 and I plan to spray paint her with Rustoleum's Heirloom White.
This frame isn't anything special, but it was new and I liked the beading around the inside of the frame. It was $3.00 (a bit overpriced for a thrift store.) Of course it will eventually get painted.
I immediately pictured this tea light lantern spray painted bright red for our outside mantel. It'll look perfect with next year's 4th of July decorations. It was $2.00.
I can never seem to have enough candlesticks. The one on the left is heavy, made of some sort of metal and was $1.99. I plan to paint it a very dark brown--I know, it already looks brown, but it's a tad "orangey." The one on the right was 99¢ and I think once painted will look pretty cool with its design.
