Ballard… but Cheaper!

I discovered Ballard Designs last year and really like their decorating ideas.  But NOT their prices.

I saw these antique silverware molds a few months ago.  Of course I like them, ’cause they’re grungy.  And Jo says my style isn’t “shabby chic”, it’s “grungy chic.”

But I didn’t like the $49 price tag.  I found a tutorial online that shows how to make them but it looked like a lot of trouble — and very messy.

 So I couldn’t believe it a few weeks later when I walked into Goodwill and found these.  Not exactly the same thing, but these have little hooks on them, too!  And Jo needed a place to hang all her measuring cups & spoons so they’re close by whenever she wants to make cookies for us! 
Guess what I paid for them?….
$3.99!

I didn’t copy this from Ballard.  It’s just a little reminder that this weekend is the Room With a Past sale!

  1. Great find! It takes frequent trips to the thrifts to make these things happen, that's for sure…..Think I just talked myself into a trip to town today…. Heidi
