  1. Wow, look at you, so thrifty!

    Sparkles and Shoes

  2. My favorite find was a massive 70’s 9-drawer solid wood dresser. Of course it had the faux-oak finish, but also mitered corners on the drawers. I painted it antique white with a little yellow mixed in, then antiqued it with a dry brush of walnut stain. The stain settled in the dings and any further dings through the years have made it look even better. I use it as an entertainment center. I got the dresser plus two end-tables for $58. The end tables flank my bed. Another fave find was an antique banker’s chair to match a petite roll-top desk that I found. I’ve been an avid up-cycler for years.

  3. Great up-cycles. My fav’s are the lamps and clock-awesome!

  4. This is awesome, I love all of the things that have been done just by purchases from Goodwill. I’ve done a few renovations to Goodwill pieces, but this gives me so much more inspiration! :)

  5. Love it all! I can’t believe you remade them all from Goodwill. Our Goodwill has nothing but clothes and shoes :(

  7. I found this desk on the curb a few streets over and turned it into a kitchen island. http://deeconstructed.com/bachelor-pad-island-makeover/

    I’m at The Will a few times a week. It amazes me how in the few hours I’m there the stuff turns over! That’s probably why I’m there for so long – you have to keep making loops around to see what else they’ve brought out! :)

    Btw – I just attempted to do the Instagram link up. I have no idea if I did it correctly. Let me know if you see a photo of my puppy under the covers. ~Dee @deeconstructed.com

  11. Love these features! I love finding treasures at Goodwill! I am a new blogger and this is my favorite project!!! I purchased a large wooden $3 lamp from Goodwill. I painted and distressed with Annie Sloan Chalk paint and added a new shade from HomeGoods!

  12. Thanks for including my little owl. I had doubts spray paint could fix him. Glad I took a chance on him :).
