I recently took a trip to the local Goodwill and was once again stricken by the realization that Goodwill is a major supplier for us DIYers! I mean, aisle after aisle of merchandise screaming to be painted, glued, sequined and the like. I generally start in the furniture aisles and always look for the colored tag for the 50% discount. (As many of you know, Goodwill prices their merchandise at 50% based on the color of the tag on each item.) I headed down the nic-nacs aisle and perused each shelf looking for inspiration. I determined to go with glass projects, so hunted for something I could use as a jewelry tray and something I could use as coasters. Found ’em!
The clear glass “coasters” are actually ash trays, but pretty them up with some gold paint pen and you’ll never know.
I also found these white coasters and used paper and Modge Podge to beautify them. So simple!
Last, I found this cute clear glass tray and instantly thought it would be great for jewelry. I had a package of napkins that I haven’t used in months, so I grabbed one of them and Modge Podged away!
These will make great gifts for someone, or might just become a part of my home decor. Next time you’re in need of a little DIY therapy, just head to your local thrift store and those creative juices will get going in no time at all.
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. | Isaiah 41:10
