I love to go thrift store shopping. And, I especially love it when I find something fun. I thought I'd share some of my favorite finds recently.
This chair was a Goodwill find a while back - $14. A beautiful chair - traditional with a little "moroccan" flair. I was debating whether to keep it dark or paint it. My husband is all about some dark, wood furniture - and, I on the other hand love white! So, yesterday I decided to paint it - I'll show the "after" pic of it soon - all I have left to do is put the fabric and foam on the seat.
I found this fun cart yesterday at a local thrift store and when I saw the price of $1.99, I knew I could find a place for it somewhere! And, the color is perfect for our house. I love a mix of vintage/modern/traditional. Super-fun.
And, this fun spice rack was found on my way to see my BF. I had some time to kill and stopped into the local Goodwill. I have been wanting a spice rack of some sort because the cabinet for our's is about five inches wide and a super pain to get the spices in and out of! So, I saw this and was about to pay $7.50 for it because all the bottles were marked separate - but, when I got to the register, the lady said she was just going to charge me $1.50 for all of it!
I didn't realize we had skipped a couple years - notice the date.
Aren't they cute? Just needs a little cleaning and tlc.
Fun finds...as we continue to make this house our home! I know it isn't about the "things" which fill our homes, but for someone like me who likes design, finding fun "things" at cheap prices add a personal touch and bring a smile to this heart. So, yay for cheap, practical finds!
