Garage Sale Treasures

Since I don’t have to go into work until 6 tonight, I thought I’d do a little garage sale hunting today.  I went to 4 or 5 and they all pretty much just had a bunch of crap (I guess that’s what garage sales usually are, right?).  But at my second stop I found something that I snatched up as soon as I saw it.  It’s basically just a piece of wood with cork glued to it, but with a little paint and some ribbon, it could be an extremely cute memo board for my dorm room!

Here it is! Isn’t it sad looking? My bedroom walls are pretty pathetic too…they used to be lavender but we had to repaint and recarpet my entire room because of a small (okay, not so small) hair dye explosion.  Oops.  Sorry mom!

More pictures to come once I buy some materials to make this little guy a bit easier on the eyes :)
