Goodwill Finds All for under $16 bucks

So yesterday, in between an appointment with a client and a committee meeting I was able to kill some time at one of the local goodwill stores on Val Vista and Southern in Mesa.  I have never been in this particular store before and it is a fairly new one that I forgot about. 

Here are a few of the finds I found.  I thought they were a good price and have some ideas for most of the items.

The mason jar was $.69 and the picture frame holder, {I know there is a politically correct word for it, but I can't think of it right now} I got for $1.99.

This birdcage was the first thing I spotted and I probably paid too much for it, but I have a lonely plant shelf that is screaming for it.  I need to dust it off and am thinking of repainting it another color like black or something.  Oh, by the way, black is my all time favorite color and that is my first choice for everything.  So I paid $4.99 for this one.

I am thinking of using this as a jewelry organizer and adding some knobs under that pull down shelf and then possibly adding bigger more dominant hooks and then of course changing the color cuz red will not go with anything I have.  Probably black!  So predictable.  I paid $3.99 for this one.

I also paid $3.99 for this metal shelves.  This thing completely folds flat.  Not sure what I will do with this one, but another one I had to have.

This one I paid $1.99 for and will paint it pink with a black wash to use for my daughters room although the picture in the middle is not all that feminine.  I might do a distressed blue and save it for my sons room. 

Anyway, sooo many options, will update you with the redos as soon as I get to them.  But I will definitely have something to do this weekend.  Can't wait to share.
