After: Gingham checked bulletin board and distressed frame. I hang my recipes on it as I cook.

Got these goodies at Hobby Lobby for 80% off! They were ugly brown and I spray painted them white. step stools!!! Paid $10 for all 3. The plant stand was found at Goodwill.

The glass apothecary jar was $5 atmTJMaxx. The white one was $4 from Hobby Lobby .

The smaller 3 jars with lids were $1.50 each at Goodwill. THe larger one is from TJMAxx for $8. THe medium jar is from Alan's side of the family.
My find on Saturday. White pitcher, rooster and birds were painted$2 for all 3, glass dome $1, and the purse for $2 at Goodwill.

This is listed for $40 at Target and I paid $3. My son loves it!!! Even the adults had it on!!!
