Thrift Score Thursday No. 130


It’s #ThriftScoreThursday and time rock those thrifted goodies. This week I scored a great pair of Dixie furniture nightstands that with just a little bit of love were ready to go. When I spotted them in the thrift store they were sitting on the floor and looked like this.


I thought to myself those would be great with tapered legs added to them and as I checked the drawers to see if they were in good shape look what I found!


Only problem is the legs were two different lengths not a great look for a pair of nightstands and the tops had seen better days.


So I decided on a coat of white paint for the boxes only and did a little surgery on four of the legs cutting them off to match the other set.


Once it all came back together they made a perfect pair.


Now let’s have a closer look at what you found…


But first, for the newcomers 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 Cassie Bustamante, Corinna from A Designer At Home, Brynne from The Gathered Home, myself and occasionally a guest-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 Favorites:

thisatticvintage couldn’t pass up this kitty cat cookie jar… It was missing the lid, but look what a nifty planter it makes. I love when people come up with creative new uses for found objects so they can live another life.


I love everything about this thrifty room from found_phoenix_restoration especially the mint condition Skovby Denmark teak table and J. L. Moller chairs. Great combination!


I feel a little responsible for srosen44 first embroidered picture purchase since she said I started her obsession. I have to say this one is a great start. Don’t we all want a house to looks like this picture?


jmwearing found this mcm recliner beside a dumpster at her local thrift store. She had to convince the manager to let her buy them even though they believed them unfit for sale because they had ripped cushions. I need to find this thrift store, sounds like they have some high standards!


Gotta love these finds!

Now don’t forget to stop by and check out all my co-hosts to see what they’ve been up and their favorite #ThriftScoreThursday finds.

  3. Gorgeous! I just love the way you save so many adorable pieces of furniture – I don’t think I would have thought to cut the legs to match! They turned out so cute!

  4. I just love that you put in that bit of work to make these nightstands the perfect pair that could be. They’re gorgeous with your touch!

    Maggie, I love the nightstands and I am amazed that you could get such a beautiful white finish using spray paint. Did you use any kind of sealer? I always look forward to your blog.

    • Rita I use the one with paint and primer combined no top coat needed. I love spray paint but you have to be patient and do light coats instead of trying to cover it all at once.
