Thrift Store Score
On my birthday last month, I spent the day doing my favorite thing – thrifting with a friend. Most of our day was spent looking without finding anything perfect. Except for lunch. Lunch was perfect (thanks, Jenn!). After lunch, I found it — my find of the day.
I have a thing for thrift store paintings and this one caught my eye. The original price I was quoted was way out of my range. The clerk consulted with the store manager and he priced it less than a third of the original price. Score! The frame was a shiny & fake bronze color. I spruced it up with some black spray paint and now it lives on my living room wall with other favorite ship paintings.
