Thrift Score Thursday

Hi everyone! I'm so happy to be acting as a guest co-host on one of my favorite blog-reading, Instagram-surfing days of the week. THRIFT SCORE THURSDAY! Because let me tell you, besides all of the really important things, finding stuff to love at a bargain price makes me one happy lady. Can I get a witness?!

First let me show you what I managed to score this week!

I found this sweet thing at a garage sale on the street next to ours. I am a total sucker for caning and faux bamboo so have both and you've got me drooling.

I immediately sent a picture to my mom in case she wanted to use it somewhere in their new farmhouse. You can see a tour of their sweet little cottage here and some design plans for rooms in their new house here and here.  

After some brainstorming, I decided to paint it and we would use it as a pop of color in their new master bathroom. They are planning on white tile, white walls and a warm wood-toned vanity so an antique green to offset the white and wood, will be dreamy.

I sanded it down, taped off the caning and removed the awesome hardware. I wanted it to look weathered and dry brushed so I chose 3 different greens to layer on top of one another. PS green is my favorite color to decorate with so I have about eleventy different green paint samples in the garage.  3 were easy to come by.  I just can’t quit it.

With each layer of color, the details in the legs became more obvious and the hardware works so well with the caning. I just LOVE how it turned out.

Now for the goodies I found on the #thriftscorethursday feed on Instagram.

Look at this lamp from @modbeachhouse. She paid $5 and she's right when she says she would have paid that for the finial alone. Look at it! Awesome.


This mirror from @design_it_vintage.  Can't wait to see the rest of the room. Also, I'm jealous because I could really use this mirror in the half bath I'm creating for my parents. Just saying..

Look at this amazing marble table from @dravenmade. $15 at auction! I'm thinking I need to find an auction ASAP.  Glad to be following this great room makeover. Also, is it weird that i want to lay on this table? Yeah? I wouldn't...

And last but not least, look at these brass finds from @lidijajerant. I feel like Anthropologie might have donated to a thrift store. And all of it for $8. So good. Can't wait to see where all of this ends up.

How it works:
Every week, the features are picked from the #thriftscorethursday feed on Instagram and the hosts would love to see what you've scored!

  3. Your table turned out absolutely beautifully! And I love the way you styled it - I'm guessing that decoupaged art was a DIY? Absolutely dreamy!

    Thank you for joining us this week, Jessica!

    1. Thanks Corinna! I had so much fun. I should say that my version of farmhouse is probably a little different from the actual definition. ; ) We have to put our own spin on things, right?!
