My First Goodwill Find

A new Goodwill store opened last Friday in our town, the first.  We have very few good thrift stores, just a Salvation Army and a store run by the Assistance League.  I've had a bit of luck in the Assistance League store, but never at Salvation Army.  I couldn't wait to check out the GW, as I've seen so many of you post about the great deals you've found.    I've been looking for a TV stand for my son's room; he finally told me he really didn't care for the bar stool that the TV was perched on...imagine that!  I found this TV/Bookshelf, and it's even on wheels!
I sanded off just the finish, and it took about 20 minutes...

After a few cans of black spray paint, it started to look like  this...
It think it looks pretty good in My Boy's room, next to his dresser...
Not bad for $39 and a few cans of spray paint!


  1. Very pretty turn out!!! Great deal!

  2. What a find! It turned out great, and it's perfect for a teen's room!!

  3. What a great find! I love how it turned out! Beautiful!

  4. Rhonda that turned out gorgeous and amazing!
    Love it in black with it's contrast to the wall color.

    Thanks for the sweet wishes. I always appreciate your kindness and visits. ~Melissa :)
