Thift Store finds this weekend!

i found this lamp at the TS and i lOVEd it...i new exactly what i was going to do with it......
My Sister n law has something like this at her house, and i wanted one So i made one. i even got the wreath at the thrift store for like 25 cents! I just took the lamp apart, took all the shiney stuff off. Then i just put it back together by tinkering!!
i hung the W with some fabric! I found the W at Walmart...it was $2.00 it cost more then the base. Crazy!
We were desperate for a Hamper...are hamper was the floor and it was driving me NUTS! i would of just bought one, but the are like 30 to 40 bucks just at walmart...No thanks im cheap! So i found this baby at the thrift store in good shape and it was only a buck.

In this picture it doesnt look to bad...but it was.



some spray paint and it looks great.. I love it and now we have a HAMPer...cant beat that for a buck and some paint!
p.S. i love the thrift store...you just have to go there with an open mind of what you can do with all the junk there!
