My Latest Thrifty Finds

I hit the thrift store at least once a week and need to catch up sharing my finds (maybe include a fashion label too since a lot of my clothes seem to come from there lately too).  Here are a few of the treasures I found with more to be posted in the near future.

I couldn't pass up these chairs.  They're going in a guest bedroom once we start the makeover there but since that room is currently my craft room/office, they're sitting in this space for now.  I had to make it look nice in the meantime. (And I'm collecting plates to fill in and add color to the plate wall.)
chairs $25 each
The chairs will get a DIY makeover in the near future.

Lamp is also a thrift store score...
lamp $2.99
This tiny wall in the kitchen is the perfect spot for this mirror. Ggreat to catch a quick look before heading out the door...picture is taken at an angle so my reflection isn't in there.  I wasn't dressed to share. 
mirror 6.99
I love this Pennsylvania card from a box of US State cards.  Looks so cute in my reclaimed frame.
box of state cards .59
The bird statue on the left is for the guest room makeover too...
peacock .99

Wow! Great chairs and they don't look so bad as they are but I'm sure you'll make them lots better. Love that lamp...that was a great find. And I would have scooped up the peacock statue too!

LOVE the vignette with the chairs! Excellent find! I wish I had the guts/skills to tackle a project like that. I can't wait to see the 'after' shots.

I love the richness and texture of that reclaimed frame. And the peacock is adorable, too!

Blue Velvet Chair said...

I gotta get some photos of my latest finds and post here! I LOVE the two chairs you got. Only thing that would make them better is if they were blue velvet! :-)
