On Sunday I posted about my first time adventures to the Goodwill. And how I seriously think I may have a new addiction!! I am not sure I even mentioned all of our findings. But I think we hit the jackpot!! We got "Muscles" a brand new pair of Columbia shorts for school (their high school has a dress code). I even got a pair of plaid Old Navy shorts. But the most exciting finds were these...
I know, I know...some of you that read my post Sunday are probably thinking you are having a dejavu. But I promise, I am getting the reason of this post!! LOL!! I don't really care for the bunny on the Spring decor, but it is only attached by a small hinge...so I think I may just remove him. But the main reason for this post is to pose a few questions regarding the other items to all of you....
1) I know I want to prim up the bowl and the cutting board. But being kind of new to the whole "crafting" thing, I want to make sure I have the process correct. Do I either start with a base coat of black (if I want black to show thru) then make the second layer the primary color, sand to make it look worn and then add stain? Then do I seal it with something? And if so, what do you all recommend? And what color do you think I should use to prim these pieces up?
2) I know I saw a post somewhere in blogland where a fellow blogger made-over a little shovel similar to the one I found. But now I can't find it for the life of me!! So if any of you have seen this as well...could you please help me and tell me where?
Thanks girls, in advance, for all of the help!! Your the best!!
