Third Annual Thrift Benefit Linky Party

I am super happy to be participating in the Third Annual Thrift Benefit Linky Party for Sheltered Animals. This is such a great cause and very near and dear to my heart! Almost all the animals I have ever been blessed with have been adopted from a shelter or simply showed up on my door step. So many animals are in need of love - and did you know that in addition to donating to your local animal shelter you can also SHOP to help them out?? That's right, so many shelters these days operate thrift stores to help fund their rescue efforts. To find a Thrift Store for Sheltered Animals in your area check out this link.

A While ago I picked up these great little drawer units at the Second Chance Treasures Thrift Store in Garland. 

These are eight separate drawers and they were $1.41 each - the deal of the century! I grabbed them up as soon as I saw them and stopped on the way home to buy some spray paint! Of course, I did not remember to take any photos of the actual process of spray painting them - please use your imagination!

I am guessing these were used in an office at one point.

They will now be holding this fabulous array of goodness that DecoArt was so kind to send me. If you have not checked out DecoArt's new Media Line of paints and mediums please run and do that right now because they are awesome!

And after painting they look like this! A wonderful new addition to my craft studio.

The drawers are the perfect size to hold the various pieces of the media and I can reach them easily from my work table.  I used Sign Tags from Deflecto Craft to label the drawers - the tags come with a chalk marker so you can erase/edit when you need to. I attached with removable glue dots so I can easily change the labels out. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to see what my friends came up with for their thrifted projects!
