Anyways, fast forward to today and bargains make me almost as happy as spray paint. Combine the two, a bargain needing spray paint, and it is instant euphoria - read about my spray paint problem here. And since I hit up the thrift stores and found some killer bargains, I have a perma-smile on my face right now. Behold what $15 buys:
The books were on sale 2 for $1 and the cute little owl book ends were $1 for the set. The little bird was also $1. I plan to spray paint the owls and the little bird gloss white to make them look ceramic.
