Wanna see my balls?

Remember this from last week?
It's a thingy to hold pool balls and to keep track of the score
Well today while we were garage saling we found these to go with it
Mike walked right up to the guy and said "I'll give ya $5.00 for your old balls"
I nearly died! Guy thought it was funny though
We also picked up some chalkboard spray paint to redo the chaulk board part,
I want it black not the green that it is now.

Here's some other goodies that we found
I turned to Mike and said "you know what these would look good as"
He rolled his eyes and said "let me guess white?!" lol
Now I just need to figure out what to put inside them.
Cute lil mirror
Below just the mirror frame, this will be painted as well
Saw this out the corner of my eye, I have plans for it.
It was only $3.00, I couldn't say no!
Not sure what to do with this one yet.
Sorry no pic of inside, I forgot!
I've seen so many neat ideas with bird cages
Super tiny but they called to me, have no idea what to do with these
Don't know what this is for but I loved it, might spray it black and put it in the kitchen
Mike loves squirrels, what can I say!
Yes, he is sitting on a giant nut, therefore his name is Nutz
Glassware!


So this is the end result (I did buy another mirror, but I'm not showing yet)
and all this only cost $35!
Mike also got a wireless mouse for his computer, but I figured no one wanted to see that!

I wanted to start some of my projects but it got really windy and started to thunder so no painting today, hopefully tomorrow will be nicer.

I am a  fairly new blogger and I love any feedback you may have!

I have a lot of time to kill lol

Great finds! I once asked a guy at the hardware store if he had any "pull chain" or "ball chain" I really had to try to keep a straight face! LOL
