Thrift Score Thursday No. 111


It’s #ThriftScoreThursday and today I thought I’d something a little different. Not to long ago when posting some of my weekly favorites Cassie from Primitive and Proper commented that they would work well in a room together. That one comment got me thinking why not design a room entirely from the thrift scores you guys have shared. My entire house is pretty much a thrift score so why not a house of your finds? So this week decided to do just that. The mood board above is created entirely from objects you guys shared on the #ThriftScoreThursday Istagram feed. I’d say we created a pretty amazing space.

Now let’s have a closer look at all these beauties and see just who found them all…

But first for the new comers let me explain just what #ThriftScoreThursday is.  We want you to participate! Hit up your local thrift stores, craigslist, yard sales, estate sales, side of the road, anything! Thrifty doesn’t necessarily mean from a thrift store. We want to see your good deals, wacky finds and true treasures.

You can share your finds any day of the week but features are shared on our blogs and Instagram on Thursdays, but we’re all checking in on (and using!) the hashtag all week-long. So, when you see/find it, feel free to share it!  And we love it when you tag your friends to play along, too!

Each week Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from A Designer At Home, Brynne from The Gathered Home, myself and occasionally a guest co-host will pick a few favorite thrift scores to feature on our blogs! Please note that by linking up with #ThriftScoreThursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.

My favorite finds that went into the mood board:

I started with my very own maggieoverbystudios thrift score, a pair of super cool globe pendants I scored for just $35


and I can always count on thebeauideal to find the good stuff like this shelf and lamps he found on his way home from work.


curatedcayman added a rattan daybed to the mix.


and  jenc184 my #moschairjunkie soul sister brought on these pink velvet cuties.13118295_1743070979242373_232453043_n

and I can always count on lunemkt for a few great accessories like these guys.

For the floor our rug addict, diyconfessions brings this perfect addition


 for a place to set our drinks pursuingvintage found this brass beauty


and jenc184 ‘s vintage metal giraffe makes a great accessory in any space.

Thrift Score Thursday Guest Host Call 2


  1. the mood board isn’t showing up for me- it’s like one squished line of color. but i love where it is going from the finds i see!!!!

    • Sometimes you just have to refresh! I find Corrina’s photos always overlap the text until I refresh, technology :p

  2. oh it showed up now after i commented! LOVE seeing it all together!!!

  3. Love this! And I’ll take it ?

  4. What a great switch up idea. LOVE it! Thanks for including my finds in this spectacular room

    Not a blogger … just a mere mortal. LOVE the mood board idea. Look forward to TST every week, and the mood board really elevated this week’s haul. Great idea!

  6. Gretchen@BoxyColonial says:

    Such a fun idea for a mood board! Also, I want a brass bunny!

  7. Seriously drooling over all these amazing finds!!! The mood is such a cute idea, its amazing how good it all looks together! Also, if I could find a pink velvet chair like the ones pictured I would be over the moon!

  8. What an awesome, super fun idea Maggie!!! Thrift Score Thursday is definitely going to need some more mood boards in the mix – you’re a genius!

    • Maybe they’ll become a regular on slow shopping weeks. Can we recommend everyone shoot their photos on a white background? ha ha ?

  9. You are so talented! I have got to learn how to do this. So fun!

  10. The moodboard is a great idea, seeing the finds in a “fantasy” setting makes them even better 😀

    • Thanks Alex, I’m sure some people see things at the thrift store and miss the potential or wonder what would I do with that? This is a little peek of what I see when I’m at the thrift store 😉

  11. Pink velvet!!!! WOW what a find

    • Aren’t they great! Actually Julia this whole set up would go perfectly in your house. I even see a piece or two that look familiar…

  12. So many amazing finds (your globes… HELLO??!!! FABULOUS!). Thanks for sharing my brass chest! Still trying to decide if I have a place for it! Love how you put everything together!

    • Thanks, My entire house is a thrift store mood board 😛 so I figured why not here. I think maybe it need to be a regular feature.
