Awesome Goodwill Finds!

So yesterday, the hubs took the three kids out for the day (not sure where, I haven't asked yet) and I got a whole day to myself to do whateva I wanted. 

So what do I do, you ask?  Cleaned the house, vaccummed, washed floors!  Yeap, that's what I did for the first couple of hours.  And then, I went out!

I ended up at Goodwill first.

A Birdhouse!!  I've been looking for one for-ev-er!!
The little door says "CHATEAU".
Isn't it cute?

I popped into the grocery store and found this Orchid.  Isn't she purdy?  I was thinking of popping her in that apothecary glass right behind her.  Do you think she will be ok in there?  I don't to kill her... yet. (cause you know I will)

There they both are on my buffett!  hmmm...  I'm gonna have to play with THAT look!  The scale is really off.

So now I need your help!

What colour should I paint the bird cage?

You found some great things Bette and got so many things done! You've got to enjoy having a day like that. I really love birds and birdhouses. I think it is pretty as is but I can see it white as well.

Have a wonderful week.

I would go light since there are so many dark pieces in that space. It will lighten the space up. Heirloom white maybe. You can always add a glaze to it to pick up on the dark pieces.

I LOVE GOODWILL!! If you read my blog you will find a few things out about me and one is that I am a goodwill junkie...(not the kind that brings junk home though)...I am very particular but I love find a great deal!

Thanks for stopping by the other day...I am your newest follower! I wish I could get up at 6 a.m. to read blogs...I am usually at it from 9 a.m. to noon! lol

Love your finds. I have an almost identical birdcage from Goodwill! I left mine natural for now so I'll be curious to see what you end up doing with yours...
Mine is a bit more rustic....

I love that you went to Goodwill in your free alone time!

What about green? Is that a green pillow on your chair I see? That would tie that in together. Although I kind of like it just the way it is!

Have a super day!

Great finds! I'm thinking paint it a super super light green! Maybe wipe it back a little afterwards too to give it a not so perfect and new look?

It's great to have some free time isn't it?! Usually I end up doing housework too! Lol. As for the orchid...I won't say anything about that since I have a bad rep for killing plants. Lol. Have a great day!
