I know it is only the end of July but would you believe I was thinking about Halloween not only today but a month ago when I bought this?
Of course I didn’t look like a spooky Halloween house when I bought it. It was more like this.
Yep, it was a Christmas house but not your typical Christmas Village, this was meant for the kitchen.
This set was five pieces that together make a full holiday decorated inn. I knew when I first saw it that it had potential. I was able to look past the salt & pepper shakers, cookie jar, sugar and creamer set and see the great Halloween house that it could be.
No, I won’t be using this creamer anytime soon.
I won’t be storing sugar in here.
It makes too good of a great spooky house to use the individual pieces. I’ll be keeping it together as one great house.
It was a quick and easy transformation, a coat of primer, a coat of black paint and a light spray of Krylon Glitter Blast and the spooky transformation was complete.
The best part of this transformation was the price tag – 25 cents.
Yep, a whole 5 piece set for a quarter.
Now if this house was life size the entrance might keep me away but since it fits into my hand it doesn’t scare me one bit.
If you see Christmas items at a garage sale, don’t let this scare you away,
See the potential and make your own haunted house like this.
It might just be the best 25 cents you ever spend!
I usually link to these fabulous parties:
25 cents????? You have got to be kidding me. What a great buy and an even greater transformation.ReplyDelete
awesome idea! never would have thought of that!ReplyDelete
Now you have given me a reason to keep an eye out for these at the Thrift stores. I'd keep it out all year forget just for Halloween.ReplyDelete
oh em gee! i would never have had this vision, but i LOOOOVE it! a real deal and a steal for that price, made even better for halloweed! it's never too early to get ready/talk about/pine for halloween (at least according to me!)ReplyDelete
WOW! I am so impressed! Nice work!ReplyDelete
You did a great job with the transformation. Sometimes it is hard to look past what something is, to see what it can be. You have a good eye :)ReplyDelete
