Right now in my head I'm really thinking and singing the "Wipeout" song, but only my version, replacing it with "White-out"! Yea I'm a strange's been one of those days. One of those days to where Hubs looked at me and said, "In the kindest way I can say it, do you need to get out by yourself for a little bit?"

Did I really have to think about?

Yea buddy, see ya!!!!!!

And that was that, I was gone for 4 hours finding some more treasures. By myself. No kids. It was heaven.

Days prior to today, I have been working on our room. I'm not letting it out of the bag all I have done just yet, but I have been trying to add more white accessories to brighten it up a bit. I used to want everything so dark, so adding white has really been a change for me for anyone who knows me. So here we go...


My flower arrangement I made-taking out the dark flowers and adding in white ones.

My Good will mirror I bought for $4, anyone need a mattress? Their's a clearance on them, or that's what the paper said as I was covering up the mirror part...

In the corner of my room.

Loving the detail on this baby...

Yep, I heart it...

Hobby Lobby sign I got for $6, I liked it brown, buuttt I'm trying to lighten it up around

I painted it white, and let a little bit of the brown peek out...

My $1 Goodwill wooden candle holder. I didn't take a before pic, one of those spur of the moments, picking up the spray paint can and gettin after it...

Another Goodwill find, $3, I knew I could do something with it...

Cleaning it up with...a baby wipe. Ya know, their good for other uses besides cleaning up butts...I use them for everything...Really, I do...

See there we go...

Sorry for all the pics, but that's what I have been up to this week. Painting alot of white, I used the same ole Country White because I have a big ole thing of it I'm trying to use up and staining it with Dark Walnut. Now I've got to walk around the house and see what else I can paint white...It's taken me over...

I'm linking this up with


Off to watch the Oscars...Have a fab night!



  1. omgosh why doesnt my goodwill have these kinds of goodies!!!! I must live in a bad area of I love the mirror and that candle stick....oooooohhhhh!!! I am on the lookout for those kinda sticks.....oh and your candle holder thingy.....WOWOW!!!

  2. OMWord! I saw a mirror similar to this at Goodwill about a month ago and I passed it up. I, of course, was ill that I passed it up, so I went back and it was gone. I saw the pic and was like, "Where does this girl live? Did she take my mirror?" hahaha We are a couple states away from each other. I love what you did... therefore, making me sad I didn't get it. :)

  3. You've done such a good job of creating beautiful pieces. The mirror is gorgeous. You're right. It has a lot of detail. I like your artistic eye. You see the potential in things that not everyone else would see.

  4. You got lots of great stuff. I really love the frame and candlesticks.

  5. Girl - you've been busy! Everything looks terrific! Love the mirror! And that Love sign was taken from mass produced Hobby Lobby to custom made art fair find. Can't wait to see the room. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I love that candlestick! Everything looks great but my fav is the candlestick. So many fun cheap finds at Goodwill!
