"Restore and Restyle"

This weekend I had a chance to stop in at the Habitat Restore.  Now, first off you guys know how much I love Goodwill and one of the major reasons why is the pricing.  But, don't be fooled, all thrift/resale stores are not created equally. 

For example, I went in looking for a new oval mirror for my guest bathroom.  I'd like to replace the plain Jane one I have.  Wouldn't you know I saw the PERFECT one at Goodwill a few weeks ago for $12.99, but decided against it.  Retail regret has officially set in. 

Anywho, while checking out the mirror selection, I ran into this one..

Yeah, that's what I said too, "$75.00!!!"  While the furniture and large decorative accessories were way overpriced, the building materials and smaller items were spot on and the selection wasn't bad either.

I picked up this glass globe for just $1.00

I've been thinking about changing the globe on my conversion pendant over the sink and I just can't justify the cost of this one that I love....

Home Decorators

The one that I currently have has a yellow globe that is looking a little dated.

I simply changed out the glass shade and a few minute later...

Now if I can just figure out what to do with my window treatment here.

I also finally found one of these glass domed plates.  I've been wanting one for a while.  Something smaller than a cake stand, but large enough to place something decorative underneath. 

I  love the idea of adding succulents.  I think I'll do that this Spring.

Until then, I'm using the $5.00 one I picked up at the ReStore to display a few of those gold pine cones.

Lastly, I picked up this really cool basket.  I have no idea what its' original use was, but I'm planning to use it for magazines. I think.

Any other suggestions?
