Some thrift store finds

$1 each for the little shelves and only $2 for the end table which I think I'm going to fix up for Ross and Mason's room.  Ohhh...how I wish they had been here for Halloween.

Happy Halloween

Cale LOVED his costume and hammed it up as usual.

So much fun

This old chest has been around for longer than I have.  I remember it in my parents room with blankets inside and clean laundry piled on top.  It's been in my garage for more than a year so I thought I'd fix it up and actual use it.

After a little sanding I sprayed it with gray primer and then sanded some off around the edges.  Then I sprayed with black spray paint and then sanded some more.  After it was dry I put on a coat of tung oil (I wish I skipped that part because it made it too shiny but I thought it would make it more durable)
