Love Me Some GW!

 Yes, those little ceramic birdhouses are from the Dollar Tree, cute huh?

Boy, has it been hot here in SW Pa. two days in a row in the 90’s and our AC is broke! I’m not a happy camper, I get all crabby and stuff, thank goodness for pools! It’s summer now and the start of watching  Syd and Sam  twice a week plus working the rest of the week, that’s why I haven’t been on here to much just trying to get in  the groove again, by the end of summer I’m just so done in:) We were in the pool for hours today and also had a thunderstorm so now it feels like it has cooled down some.  We have some type of insurance for the home and the AC has to first ship to the AC repairman than he brings it, which I think is ridiculous…so  it better hurry!!!
I never know what I’m going to find at my local GW, somedays I walk in and there is so much I want to take home with me and other days where there isn’t a single thing there to get excited about. Some things I’ve left there because the price is just to high for GW and I’ve went back the next day and they are gone…lesson learned buy it or get it out of your mind.LOL So hard to do!
I found this magazine rack for $2.99, this is my first for having anything with cane on it, I was thrilled to find it sitting right on top of these…
three chairs!  I found these for $14.99 a piece but I left them there and couldn’t get them out of my mind so the next day I left for work earlier than usual and went back to get them. I was keeping my fingers crossed that they were still there or at least the chair with the arms hadn’t gone, which is crazy because I think it would be the first to go. When I got there and thur the door I could see all three still sitting there with a now added magazine rack sitting on top of one of the chairs, the greatest thing was when I checked the price just to be sure, they had reduced the price to $7.00 a piece…BINGO! So I got all four pieces for $24.00!
Of course they are still sitting there waiting to be painted and the seats redone, I have no clue as of now where I’m going to put them and I think I’ll paint them first before deciding on the fabric for the seats!
I did manage to paint the magazine rack a Cottage White by Behr, I think it turned out so sweet!

What great finds at the GW!! Love the magazine rack painted white!! Can't wait to see the chairs when you get them down.
My last few visits to our GW has turned up no goodies at all. Hope my next trip there is better.

The magazine rack looks wonderful, I have one in its original drab brown, think my spray paint will be making an appearance today!

You got some great finds at GW, looking forward to seeing them given a new lease of life!

Wow Rondell, what a score! $24.00, huh? That's awesome. I love how the magazine rack turned out. The caning adds so much character to it.
The weather here has been pretty darn hot & humid too, but I feel a significant cooling this morning.
Hopefully it won't heat up again until after your AC is fixed!

Oh- I think that little magazine rack turned out so beautifully! And I would have gone back for the chairs too...some things you just can't pass up! It has been hot and humid for several days but yesterday it turned cold and tonight it looks like we will be in the low 40's....from AC to heat! Crazy, crazy weather! xo Diana
