Goodwill Finds ~

Here are a few of my latest and greatest Goodwill finds. 
I have been on the hunt for a round accent table for our family room and everything I love just happens to be way too expensive. So image my delight when I spotted this lovely table for just $14.99! Now it needs a little lovin' - but with a new finish (either a darker stain or maybe black) it will be perfect.

I love how chunky these candlesticks are - they were $1.99, $2.99 and you guessed it $3.99.

And I love this little dish. It matches my "cake stands" I made a few months ago perfectly. I have recently learned it is called boopie glass. I just love the base. 

So stayed tuned for the fabulous transformation of that great, and cheap, round table! And does anyone have any great tips on how to strip this?
Look at all of these groves and angles!

what great finds!

the table looks like something you'd see on "antiques roadshow" on pbs, that someone bought for next to nothing (14.99 maybe?) & it ends up being worth 10,000 dollars. it's really beautiful.

Love following your blog!

Why not just sand it...then paint over it...and sand again in certain let the brown come through? Do just a portion so you can see if you like it...won't hurt since you plan to paint it anyway....just a thought!

Have a great day!

You found such great stuff! I can't believe that table was $14.99! Can't wait to see what you do to it, Chelsea; I'm sure it will look great! Love the candle holders, too. What a great chunky size.

I just love your wonderful sense of style. I have three little glass dishes similar to yours from my grandparents, and I love them. I recently used two of them as candle holders, but never thought to just set one out.

Good luck stripping the table.
