Feelin' Thrifty!

Im so excited to show off my thrift store find! I recently moved into a new place and Ive really been in the mood to change up my decor a little bit. Im on a pretty tight budget these days so I had to pull out the spray paint and use a little creativity!

I found this old white glass globe at the local goodwill. Im guessing it was once a part of a light fixture or possibly even a lamp (there are openings on both ends). As soon as I laid eyes on it, I immediately pictured it in a bright yellow or a turquoise blue and I love the bumpy texture.

As you can see I went with a gray color instead and I'm really happy with it! The blueish candle holder is a goodwill find as well.

The total cost of my new shelf decor is...
- Glass Globe $1.99
- Distressed Candle Holder $2.99

I already had the can of spray paint in the garage and I used fingernail polish remover as a paint thinner so the total cost with tax was just a little over $5.00!
