Thrifty Thursday: Progress on the Boys' Rooms

Happy 4th of July!
My goal is to finish my boys room makeovers by the end of the summer!  My oldest is moving into the spare room, so both him and my middle son will have their own rooms.
Well, unfortunately not much has happened yet, and its already July!!!
So this last week I really focused, and made many trips to multiple thrift stores for the sole purpose of finding stuff for my two boys!

And I actually did extremely well (YAY) which always makes it worth it to me!
Here are my thrift store finds:

I'll start with the things I found for Thing #1 (my oldest!)

Side Table: $10


Headboard: $15

This actually came as a Headboard/Footboard, but I'm only going to use the
 headboard in his room
For both pieces I used Valspar's Lincoln Cottage Black.  I used my homemade chalk paint 
(found here), then lightly distressed, and added a coat of polycrylic.

Don't they look nice together?!  Well, I think so! hehe

I also picked up this shelf for $5 that I thought would look good in his room, and he'll need all the shelves he can get!
I haven't hung this up yet because I'm not 100% sure on where I want it in his room.

 Ok, moving on to the next room.....the stuff for Thing #2!

I was thrilled when I found this guy!  He is pretty hammered, but I thought the color and size would be perfect for above his locker!

Old Foot Locker: $12

Lamp: $5
It was only the base.  The shade I already had.  But I thought it was pretty cool, and since I moved the old lamp into Thing #1's room, I needed another one. 

Side Table: $10 
(sorry no before pic, I got too excited and forgot to snap one!)
This picture makes it look white, but its actually a light blue (Valspar's Lament Blue).  
The knob I added was actually one that I had taken off of my dining room hutch when I replaced the knobs on it!

And the BEST part about this little nightstand was that it was a set!  
Yup, thats right!  It was 2 for $10!  

Not sure what I'm going to do with this one, but I had fun painting her!
 I just used an acrylic paint and heavily distressed her, then added a cute glass knob to bring out her feminine side!

Thats it for my Thrift Store finds this week!
  I feel much better about myself knowing that I made SOME progress on the boys' rooms!
