Bess' Thrifting Files {Before & After Bookend}

Yes, I've decided to add a thrifting segment to Bess' Bag!  Eeep! =) My mom {& my dad, too} started taking me to yard sales & used book stores/thrift shops when I was just a tiny tot.  Now that I'm older my thriftiness certainly hasn't waned - in fact, I've got the full blown fever - & I don't want any medicine for it, thank you! =) There's something about the uniqueness of thrifting that makes it hard to go back to the uniformity of the mall.  Not to mention, once I've gotten amazing deals it's not easy to return to paying full price!  So, here in my Thrifting Files I'll share some of my finds & the ways I've upcycled thrifted pieces - nothing like finding a new use for something or giving it a facelift of sorts.  I hope you enjoy!

thrifted doggie bookend - 99 cents 
{If only they'd had the pair!}

+ some gold spray paint 
{Spray paint can instantly update an outdated figurine or pretty much anything with a flawed paint job!}

How much is that doggie in the window, you ask?  Priceless!

Happy Thrifting,
