Here are the two treasures again. Look at the space inside that bread box and see the little legs on the bottom of the tray.....I loved that part. Yes, the tray only cost $1.48. The spray paint will come out this week and I'll share the make-over.

TRIFT STORE FINDS
Late Saturday afternoon my daughter and I took a trip to one of our favorite places....The Thrift Store. When we first got there she said, "Mom, I love it when we aren't rushed and have time to look." I always go to the dishes and wooden items first. (I'm still looking for glasses with cherries). I spotted the bread box and put it in my shopping cart and then took it out. It cost $6.88 (where do they get these odd numbers?) I knew I wouldn't use it for a bread box but with a little (it didn't take much) encouragement from Amy, I decided it had to come home with me. It will be painted (black, of course) and I will use it to put my phone books in. Right now they are taking up one of my kitchen drawers but they fit perfectly inside. The other wooden item is an oval tray. It's scratched up pretty bad, but it'll be painted also. Amy suggested that I use it on my bathroom counter (between the two sinks). I'm trying to decide what color it should be...if I do use it there.
