Owen and I headed out in search of treasures on Monday, while the big boys were in school, and I tell you what...the DI (Utah's "goodwill") did not disappoint! In fact, I feel as though I need to make a weekly visit just to re-experience the adrenaline rush:)
This dresser reminded me of the campaign style.
Hello cutest side table that is really meant to be an old sewing machine table.
If I would have had a large enough space for this funky lamp base, it would have come home with me.
And this one, such great detail!
How adorable would this changing table be in a bright lacquer?!
This gal would be a babe in the right space!
So what did come home with me you ask?!
This little guy, I loved the lines. My intention is, of course, to re-paint and re-cover, and perhaps use as my desk chair or in my entry. We'll see...he might spend some time downstairs waiting for the perfect home. But at $8, he's definitely a keeper.
And this beauty is my new living room coffee table!! Kind of odd? Yes. A little ornate? Very much so. Totally awesome and unique? You better believe it!
I plan on accenting with gold in the space, and wanted something that didn't visually take up a lot of space. Although this piece is wrought iron and scrolly, it doesn't feel "heavy". In my head it will be perfect! We'll see:) Did I mention it was just $15 and it excellent condition? Bonus!
My friends, I'm not messin' around when I say adrenaline rush! Get to your local thrift store so you can feel it! (ok, seriously...pretty much...I'm a dork!) And, I just busted out the Roger Rabbit and Running Man in front of all the teenage girls at my church, while singing Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now". Do I have no shame?!
