She’s Moo-liscious – Another Thrift Store Find
Meet the newest member of our family. I haven’t named her yet, but I’m head over heels for this little ceramic cow. I picked her up at Value Village (my local thrift store) yesterday and I’m loving the touch of whimsy she adds to my vignette. In case you’re wondering why I only ever show styled pictures of the kitchen – it’s because the rest of the house is a complete disaster. It’s difficult to style a room that still has boxes piled upon exposed subfloor with a back drop of damaged drywall. So for now, I’ll keep here right where I can see her – next to the coffee maker. Now like most of the stuff you find while thrifting, she needed a little bit of attention. And at $3.99, I probably overpaid. She was a bit dirty and had a few little chips and wear spots here and there. But isn’t she just the cutest thing. Check here out before her makeover. Price tag attached and all.After a little bit of scrubbing with hot water and dish soap I grabbed my black paint pen and got to touching up her spots. This pen was perfect for this project. If you don’t have one of these I highly recommend them for touch up and/or text projects.Good as new. Doesn’t she look cute? I bought a few other items while I was thrifting yesterday. In fact, I think they will be start of a collection for me. I’ll share them later on this week. And in case you were expecting a progress update on the wallpaper stripping in the entry way, all I can say is it’s not done. Not even close. What did you get up to this weekend?Any new additions to your family?
