Thrifty Tuesdays: Rosanna Find!

I used to have a post on Tuesdays called Target Tuesdays (featuring finds from the dollar section of the store) but I am going to change it to Thrifty Tuesdays to broaden what I can show.  

I have been on a garage sale kick these past few weekends and I love some of the finds that I've been lucky to get!  This past weekend was no exception.  For years I have been drooling over the Rosanna Decor Bon Bon collection.  I spot it on so many dessert tables but didn't want to shell out the $40 - $75 per item price.  

My favorite item of the bunch was the white footed square bowl.  

I was so close to getting it earlier this year but I am glad that I waited.  Here is the glass bowl that I got at a garage sale this past Saturday for 50 cents. 

Add a few layers of white spray paint, here is the finished piece.

Not bad for $3.50 (bowl + spray paint) right? 

 I may not be able to use the bowl for food without inserting a square glass dish in it first but it would also look nice as a floral vase too.

I will be posting this on:
