Thrifted & Spray Painted Mirrors

 I got these mirrors at a thrift store. I am not usually one for thrifting. However, I went into the store looking for something specific. I didn't find what I was looking for. But I found these. I knew that with a little paint, they would make a good birthday present for my mom. 

I failed to take a 'before' picture. But I spray-painted these black, so they looked like the went together.

And for a few dollars, I have a pretty cute gift for my mom. 

This picture (below) is not their final resting place. (It's just part of the photo wall I shared a few months back.) I just put them up on existing nails so I could show them to you. But I'm wondering if I should look for some for our home? I think they turned out very nicely. 

I also found some shorts for me, shorts and a plaid shirt for my three-year old. All for $10, including the mirrors. I think I might go back to the thrift store tomorrow!

What are some fun things you've found while thrifting?
