may or may not be is a month or so late…but yes, I won a $75 gift card for Lowes from a giveaway on Crap I’ve Made!! Char sent me an email that I was the winner as several other “winners” didn’t answer her emails. Lucky me, I was so excited!
I went in the store determined that I would not spend more than the $75 on the card and I had several projects in mind that I needed supplies for. I also wanted to get some Valspar spray paint which I had heard about but never used before…
The color choices were amazing and I fell hard for these three colors which are slightly different in shade. All gloss, tropical glass, exotic sea and peacock blue! I have used the exotic glass on my new to me wicker mirror.
The practical side of me bought some light bulbs too! I couldn’t help it…needed them, so in the basket!
I bought the wood legs and brackets and used this leftover 2 x 12 to make a short table. I was going to use it painted for plants in front of the doors, but my son claimed it as a shelf for his computer table. It works great there. So, since he didn’t want it painted, I just sanded it well. I can always paint it when he is done with it.
I bought this ready to use shelf board and the brackets to hang it with. It’s going in my sewing room to hold supplies in mason jars. More on that when I get it hung on the wall!
Oh, and I also got the newest copy of the HGTV Magazine and some sandpaper! I did spend less than $10 on the total sale as I forgot to calculate the tax into the final amount. I actually had a few houseplants that were on the clearance aisle but I put them back so I would stay within my budget!
Don’t you just love to spend money that you don’t have to pay for? Have a great week!
Congratulations! You chose great spray paint colors. I've used the "tropical oasis" and I love it. Valspar is my favorite spray paint to use. Looking forward to seeing your completed shelf.
