Thrift Score Thursday No. 131

dsc02140

Happy #ThriftScoreThursday guys, I know I’m usually sharing a thrift store makeover but this week’s find is more about the story.

This weekend was our neighborhood yard sale so I went to a whole slew of sales just a block or two from my house.  I made a loop around the neighborhood scoring a few things here and there with one last stop just a few houses down from mine.  I spied some pretty greenery from the street but couldn’t tell if it was artificial or not since it was on the table with the some obviously silk flowers. If you don’t already know, yard sales are a great place to get big beautiful house plants especially in communities like ours where there are a lot of military families constantly on the move. I was pleased to see, when I got up close, that the plant was real, super lush and only $8. SOLD

But that’s not the end of the story. The lady selling this beauty was an older lady. Like us, they had moved around a lot and the plant had gone along for the ride. (I can’t tell you how many times I’ve driven cross-country with a car load of house plants.) She told me this plant was originally from New York and she had been propagating it for 40 years. 40 YEARS! Holy cow, no pressure! Now I feel a deep responsibility to keeping this plant alive another 40 years. Hope I can live of to my neighbor’s green thumb….

golddustgoods always finds some great goodies but I have to agree that this 1930’s airline bar cart takes the cake on retro-cool and that sleek chair ain’t so bad itself. You got that right!

Thrift Score Thursday No. 130

DSC01982

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.

DSC01955

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!

DSC01960

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.

DSC01962

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.

DSC01975

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

Thrift Score Thursday No.129

DSC01920

Happy #ThriftScoreThursday guys! This week I finished a project I wanted to share but also tell the story of a lesson learned (again!) Spoiler alert, it has a happy ending but still is a valuable lesson to share.

I ran across a yard sale not too long ago and spotted this little table from the street so I decided to stop and check it out. It was sitting in the grass and seemed stable with no deep scratches, I did notice one of the legs was loose but nothing a little glue wouldn’t fix so I snatched it up for just $10.

PicMonkey Collage

When I got the little guy home I notice something I should have noticed at the yard sale. One of the feet was broken off and the opposite had been sawed off to match. I honestly don’t know how I missed this since I did notice one of the legs needed gluing…but I did. So after a bit of pondering, I decided all the legs needed to come off and be cut to match and then reglued. Fortunately, there was enough leg left to make this work and the table to still be stable.

DSC01930

This story turned out okay in the end because after giving the whole table a coat of paint you couldn’t even tell the legs had been a problem. The downside was the project took a lot more time than I had intended and when it is something I am planning to re-sell, time is money.  It was also a reminder to me that sometimes you come home with a “bargain” that can’t be fixed.

DSC01934

Public Service Announcement: Check your thrift finds thoroughly because sometimes they are a bargain for a reason and sometimes that reason cannot be fixed. Happy hunting!

Thrift Score Thursday No.128

DSC01850

Hello my friends, my favorite day of the week is here…#ThriftScoreThursday! I love that each week I get to share all my thrifted goodies. This week was one of those weeks when all the stars or at least the Foo Dogs aligned. I’m not usually a hunter of blue and white decor but when I went to an estate sale with tables and tables of it, I couldn’t help but be sucked in.

DSC01852

And seeing as there were Foo Dogs, lots and lots of Foo Dogs…how could I resist? Especially since I bought these guys on the third day of the sale when everything had dropped to half price.

DSC01853

Four Foo dogs and a super cool fish covered dish for around $25. I love me some chinoiserie!!

Thrift Score Thursday No.127

DSC01910

Happy #ThiftScoreThursday everyone, how’s the junking going this week? I have bought a few little things but I have mostly been trying to get some of my “project” pieces finished up so I can get them out of my garage. This week I finished up this cute vanity set to take over to my store (FIY it sold immediately.) But the bigger news, I can now fit a car in my garage … major progress!

DSC01911

But enough about my garage, let’s talk about this vanity set which is not a set at all. Well, at least it didn’t start as one.

I bought these pieces at three different times and they were three different finishes but I wanted to show you how they came to look like they were made for each other.

DSC01906

Of course, the Amy Howard Chalk paint and D. Lawless hardware help bring it all together but it’s really more about the details. Notice I chose pieces that all had the same scallop detail. The stool is actually that awkward middle table of a nesting set that really doesn’t work well alone but was the perfect height for a stool. It’s scalloped along the under edge and has the same feel as the under edge of the desk and the top of the mirror. Once painted out in the same finish you would never know they weren’t a matching set.

DSC01907

And since I mentioned buying a few little things, I thought I’d share my little china girl I got at an estate sale last week. I love her colors and she’s looking pretty snazzy on the new vanity don’t you think?

I’m just glad I could bring them all together!

In the spirit of my vanity set and bringing thrifted items together I decide today I’d like to share full rooms of thrifted goodness rather than single items.

Whether you like over the top thrifted bohemian like blissfully_eclectic‘s gathered gallery walls, and super hip furniture.

14052220_206272666454368_599003384_n

Or a simple sleek elegance like biggerthanthethreeofus and her amazing brass and brown leather chairs.

14027214_282423852138930_2115928720_n

or maybe a mid-century vibe like jmwearing managed with everything thrifted but the plant.

14145366_1730287047236104_1722861729_n

Or maybe you’d rather something a little in between like thebeauideal always seems to manage so effortlessly.

14134598_1059528324102565_1421387796_n

Whatever your style these rooms prove the thrift store has it, all you have to do is go out and find it.

Or maybe just move in with one of these guys!

Thrift Score Thursday No. 126

black-colorful-Vintage-floral-needlepoint-pillow-round-

It’s time again for #ThriftScoreThursday and this week my find is pretty colorful. I actually bought this pretty little needlepoint pillow on a trip to Savannah where I did some antiquing with a friend.  The pillow was sitting right in the front of the store on an orange mid-century chair the exact same color as my sofa. My mind said “Hmmm, I think I need this!”

detail-pillow-round-black-colorful-Vintage-floral-needlepoint

The details were so amazing I figured it must be vintage maybe 1960’s but I saw the date on it was 1990. Of course, 1990 was 26 years ago so I guess it is vintage.

pillow-round-black-colorful-Vintage-floral-needlepoint-detail

I fell in love with the colors and since I knew exactly where it would go at my house I checked the price. When I saw it was marked down to just $8 there was no question whether to buy it or not.

Now that it’s mine,  it’s looking perfect on my little orange sofa.

Thrift Score Thursday No. 125

DSC01642

Hello All, it’s time for another addition of #ThriftScoreThursday. Have you guys been out hunting this week? I have to admit, I have been a little slow on the thrift game this week. It seems like this time of year so much is going on and I’m spending so much money in other places that I need to trying to keep my shopping to a minimum and unfortunately, thrifting too. I have tried to be good but that doesn’t mean I could resist entirely.

DSC01633

I had to stop by just one estate sale, which was for a lady who had been a teacher in France. She had a pretty amazing collection of things which surprisingly were mostly Asian inspired.  In all this Asian, I found this one pot that seems to be french art nouveau, though I haven’t been able to figure that out for sure.

DSC01635

The bottom of the pot has some pressed number markings and a handwritten mark, but as much as I have researched I haven’t found out much more.

DSC01640

But none the less, I think the pot is beautiful with its lovely hand painted flowers and the cracks and imperfections of age. For $5 I think it was worth the splurge and for an extra $3 I was able to take home a little of Asia too in my little bamboo stand that suits her perfectly.

Thrift Score Thursday No.124

pink-typewriter-painting-coral-bamboo-nightstand-stripes

Hello my friends, are you ready for another round of #ThriftScoreThursday ? I have scored some cuties this week so I am super excited that Thursday is here and I can share them with all my thrifting peeps.

My first find was this little faux bamboo nightstand that I actually got from a friend. This cutie was actually a thrift score her husband found that never made it out of a guest room closet so she asked me if I wanted it. Hell yeah, anything bamboo is a keeper to me.

faux-bamboo-nightstand-makeover-diy

It was a little rough when I got it but a knew a fun coat of paint would bring her back to life. Inspired by my typewriter painting I did for my daughter’s room, I chose Valspar spray paint (or you could have it mixed) in Passion Pink and I love it.

The other thrift score I wanted to share with you today is this pair of white porcelain giraffes that go perfectly with this piece.

DSC01458

Another round of #ThriftScoreThursday and this week I’m going Bohemian. I have been spending a lot of time considering what I want to do in my sun room so I have been drawn to lots of outdoor items, bamboo and little decorative goodies. I have been gathering these items on hopes of figuring out a specific direction.

DSC01467

What I’ve figured out so far is that I want to bring in bright color and lots of texture with things like this pretty pressed medallion I got for $3.

DSC01465

And these bright yellow violet pots I found at an estate sale for $1 each.

I also found a grab bag set of wooden pineapple bowls for $3 which don’t really have a specific role in the sun room but definitely share the same feeling I’m going for. Maybe if I ever get the room pulled together I can use them for a get together.

I’m not holding by breath on getting this finished any time soon but having an excuse hunt some outdoor treasures never hurts…

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 Primitive and Proper, 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.

kristibiello found what boho dreams are made of in this bent bamboo chair. I wish I could find a set of these for my sunroom.

brass_attics brought home this brass crane that stands 12 inches tall and weighs nearly 4 lbs, much larger than any I’ve ever seen. What a find!13687191_145674859200245_1563156749_n

Thrift Score Thursday No. 122

DSC01451Hello my friends, are you fired up for #ThriftScoreThursday? I always am and as usual, I have thriftd my little heart out so I can share with you all my bargain goodies. This week we also have a guest host, Linda from The Home I Create, so be sure to stop by and say “Hi.”  My share for this week are some blue and white goodies I scored and some cute brass but what I really love is my little porcelain lambs head.

Often I find little things like this that don’t have any rhyme or reason but I buy them just because I like them. This guy apparently has wide appeal because I took him to the store earlier this week and he sold right away! I guess I’m not the only one who thought he was a cutie.

First the thrifting superstar ericareitman Scored this great piece of student art for her cousin. But like all great thrift scores it has a story The both saw this are  at @rosebowl_fleamarket on the same day but not at the same time .Both I fell in love, both shared on social media, and both passed because of the price. FLASH FORWARD TO THIS LAST ROSE BOWL. The same collage! The one that got away!  Erica bought it right away and gifted it to her cousin to hang in her art studio. I love a happy ending!

I love any kind of needle work and this one is no exception. This sweet little pillow detours.llc found is all hand embroidered and i just love the colors!

jenc184 (another thrifting goddess) Found a set of 5 vintage frosted lowball glasses with measurement details and a gorgeous matte copper detail. I cannot tell you how useful these glasses would have been to me in Germany. I think I would have carried that 5th one around in my purse to save me from the conversion calculator and it doesn’t hurt that they are super cute.13732185_589122777926460_1340949564_n

 

Are you guys going to be upset that I chose two pieces of needlework for #thriftscorethursday?  Because this one from modbeachhouse is everything I love…It is needlework, it has ans Asian flare, and it kind of reminds me of a paint by number…My three favorite things. What a super score!
