2nd Glance Saturday: make it new again

Finding old, or used things and updating them a bit, is cheap & fun. Take a 2nd Glance at some finds that are in our house that we enjoy daily for all under $50 total!

I bought this chair at a yard sale in college for $12 I re-covered it with a green pin stripe. I recently spent another $12 on floral material to recover it for the 2nd time.
(meg dropped by so of course we put her to work)
My grandmother is great at upholstery and she has been teaching me the tricks of the trade. It is kind of like wrapping a present with a staple gun and material. I must warn you it becomes addicting and you will begin to search for things to re upholster.

So I found this table for $12 it had really cool legs but the top was a piece of plywood after a little bit of batting and plaid material (that I had) it became the perfect table to sit by my rocker.

With a little bit of luck sometimes you can find those great finds when the item is perfect the way they are. I have to credit my mom for this find. She found this for only $10. It has great storage and is one of my favorite pieces in my house.

These cute little basketball fans deserve a 2nd Glance as well

(kase & chandler kate)

The boys recieved some money in a Valentine card from their Great Aunt. They couldn't wait to spend it. Kase took big precautions in keeping his money straight with no "crinkles" he would say. Knox grabbed his and wadded it up as fast as he could. Kase wouldn't even let me fold it to put in his wallet and Knox had a dollar wadded up in each hand.

Their purchases deserve a 2nd Glance becuase they have been a very popular item in our house. Since Kase already thinks he has lasers on his hands that he can take you out with @ any minute, these finger lights have been just what he was missing. The best part about them were they were $1 for 3.

Don't worry they work just as well on feet but they do make walking a little challenging.

Take a 2nd Glance at this photo & see if you can find knox. Hiding is his new thing!

What have you been taking 2nd glances @ lately?
