Looky What $10 Gets Ya!

I really needed, wanted, okay let's face, they mean the same to me....but really?  When I buy stuff like this book stand for $10, who am I hurting?  lol  I'm saying it's a book stand, but it could be a Bible stand?  I don't know the history or age of the piece.  I just wanted a shelf of some kind to put in my room.  I know, like my room could take more furniture...well you'd be surprised.

Before, hanging out in the garage with Lauren's bed, that I swear I will finish as soon as it warms up.  Mostly Pinky Swear.

After, living in my room.  It holds a couple knick knacks and of course my workout shoes...every one's doing  Maybe I should copy right this craze before it takes off, I am a trend my head.  (it's what the voices keep telling me.)

Don't laugh to hard at my attempt at art.  I had a direction I was trying to go with these, eventually I will replace them, just not at the top of my list right now.

I want to thank Judy at DIY by Design for giving me The Versatile Blogger, my second one!!!  Thank you!  Stop by and show her some love.  =)

Thanks for stopping by!!  xx

Don't forget to stop by my "Anything Goes Party" on Wednesday!

Cool stand for ten bucks! If it wasn't used to hold a Bible, it was probably used to hold a guest book for signing.

Thanks for linking to the party. Be sure to enter my giveaway, if you haven't done so yet.
