Week-End Finds

I've tried to stay away from thrift stores the past couple weeks, but I couldn't help myself.  I found this tacky frame/plaque for $2.00. 
A little yellow spray paint and it has a whole new life.
Here it is hanging in my room. 
I found this little bench at Goodwill.   I loved the lines of it and I've been wanting to try painting a piece of furniture. I figure that a small bench is a great way to start.
The fabric is stained and in desperate need of reupholstering.
After a tough week at work and a busy weekend, I am so excited to have today off.  I may work on this new little bench, or maybe I will lay on my couch all day.  I think the latter is winning.

I joined a linky party at : Vintage Revivals

Love love the yellow. In the first image I thought it was small, like the palm of my hand or something, which I thought was cute. Large, it's fantastic - great job. I'm inspired.

you have an eye for potential! You turned that gold piece into a yellow gem! :) and I'm excited to see what you do with the bench. But some lounging time after a busy weekend sounds great too :)

It's amazing what yellow spray paint can do. I just did a thrift store cake plate in yellow and love, love, love it.
